Dear Artist Armor:
Thank you for the information. It helped me post my actor’s reel on Artist Armor. I have a personal horror story that I would like to share.
A few years ago, I needed a promotion reel. I contacted a trusted friend of a friend who told me he would write a script and gave me a dollar amount. I also had to pay for the equipment, crew, editor and graphics. Friends appeared in supporting roles, and I provided lunch and dinner for the three-day shoot. A month later, when I had not yet received my talent reel, I contacted the SOB who advised me that the rate he charged was insufficient and he needed more money. I paid it, but never received the reel. Be assured that this will never happen to me again, because from now on all my communications will go through Artist Armor.
I am a writer Member of Artist Armor. About 6 months ago I was about to collaborate with a friend on a screenplay.
Before we began, I asked my collaborator to join Artist Armor for our mutually protection.
My “friend” refused stating our friendship was more important and if we really trusted each other that was enough.
I decided not to work with him because his refusal to become an Artist Armor member,which is free, did not sit well with me. He went on to collaborate with another mutual friend.. Months later I was sure I had done the right thing by backing off the collaboration. It seems he removed the name of our mutual friend from the script and registered and submitted the script as the sole writer. I am grateful to Artist Armor for saving me the trauma my other friend is going through.
I want to thank the team at Artist Armor. I am a Actor/Writer and have been in the biz for 8 years with credits. Unfortunately some of the credits are not current. I found I was spending more time looking for an Agent or Manager than working on my craft. When I joined Artist Armor I was surprised that after a while I was contacted by an agent who like my profile. I accepted his the request to view my information and samples. I am relaxed with this since it is all through Artist Armor and if all goes well I will have representation in Hollywood.
