Dear Talent Agent.
How are you and I hope the movie industry is as great as ever?
Thank you very much for your message the week before Christmas.
As an agent, you see literally hundreds of head shots and resumes each day, each one from an aspiring actor full of hopes of stardom. I know that most of these headshots wind up directly in your trash can. I would like to introduce myself briefly.
I’m in contact with Kate Bone from Nina Gold Casting for a role in the new Stars Wars IX sequel; but Kate needs a recommendation from a well-known Talent Agent who will suggest me for the upcoming auditions in London (Pinewood Studios).
As you have so pictorially said: Knowing your type as an actor is essential! Actors are virtually entrepreneurs, running their own business in this industry. One of the very first rules of entrepreneurship is to find your audience. The success of the business will depend on entrepreneur’s ability to find a circle of consumers interested in the product.
And yes, you are right … I am the great supporting cast that brings the film and the main character shine because it’s more important to have the villain be interesting – it’s that [villain] role that run away with the movie.
Honestly, I like that fantasy action genre. As a child, I discovered my love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton.
❞As Actors, as Novelists -as Artists- we are the last of the Shamans, the Keepers of Fantasy, Knights Templar of the Creative! And I think it also helps if you are a Dreamer. I had my dreams all right. And that is something no one can ever take away. They cost nothing, and they can be as real as you like to make them. You own your dreams and they are priceless. I’ve been a lavatory attendant, a theatre usher, a panhandler, and preferably a “Sith Lord”, all for real. That’s the stuff my dreams are made of❝.
I’m finished the “Acting for Film Conservatory Master Program” at NYFA New York Film Academy (Los Angeles). I’m a well-known William Esper trained Actor and awarded Novelist. Currently, I have a recurring lead role in the Action-Thriller-Sequel “Out For Vengeance”. I am also involved as a producer in the film project. Here is an article (press release EN): http://www.groundreport.com/actor-varick-addler-one-talented-german-everyones-radar/
As already discussed, I’m seeking a strong representation in the field of Acting (theatrical and/or commercial).
See below a letter of recommendation from Producer Salar Zarza to Varol Porsemay, an well-known “Industry Hollywood” Manager.
I also work as a writer, screenwriter; my last two works were released in 2016: RAINBOW BRIDGE (love drame) and TIME CAPTURED (historical-WW2-fiction). Both works got a 5*****-Rating and are nominated for the Readers’ Favorite Best Book Award 2018 and are in the final round. My new novella is Book 1 of a seven-book sequel called Satanic Verses – A New Era (epic-fiction).
If you feel I would be a good fit for your company and projects, please feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org!
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
