ALBANY TALENT CONTINUES TO GROW!!
On March 1st, Albany Talent opened an office in Kingston, New York as part of a media center complex including two ad agencies, a TV studio, production studio, recording studio and a small bistro theater. About fifty new talent came in for interviews. James: “We saw some great new people, including a gorgeous and experienced model/actress from LA as well as an entire family–parents and three girls–who are all talented. Also, there were some excellent voice-over people, union and non-union.”
