Do agents pick people from Barbizon Acting and Modeling Agency if they like what they see?




I was called by the Barbizon Acting and Modeling Agency today, and i heard from one side that it was a scam, and from someone else that it isn’t at all a scam, and that people can get opportunities to across and model if an agent likes you. Has anyone ever been to barbizon? Do you know if agents pick people from there? Are good acting and modeling opportunities guaranteed or atleast common for people that have joined in Barbizon? Please answer! Thanks :) )

    For a start, acting and modelling are totally different careers, and they have different requirements and different agencies.
    Everything I’ve heard about Barbizon is bad. It costs a lot of money, it won’t get you auditions, and if you add it onto a resume, people will just laugh.
    They’re not agents for acting.

    To be a model, you have to be very tall, very skinny, have good skin and an interesting face. No talent, skill, training or experience is required. All you have to have is a portfolio and submit it to real modelling agencies.

    To be an actor you have huge talent, high intelligence, a resume showing many years of training at an accredited acting school, other skills such as singing and dancing, and a long list of stage plays in which you’ve taken leading roles. Then you’d submit your resume and headshot to SAG/AFTRA registered agencies.

    But Barbizon – please! They accept anyone stupid enough to give them money, regardless of whether they have talent or not. I never heard reliable evidence of anyone getting any sort of work from them.

    As a former Barbizon employee, I can tell you that you will most likely be accepted into one of the acting/modeling programs, but be aware that it will cost you about $2300.

    Barbizon is good if you want to learn how to act/model/sing/dance, but it is not guaranteed that you will make a career of it. It is also a great if you want to build confidence, they do very well with that! They do have great teachers, and that is what you’re paying for, as well as for the class materials. Think of it as a college that requires tuition, except it is not accredited.

    They do work with agents, but the agents are usually picky on who they want. If you’re lucky, sometimes they have opportunities for side work, but that doesn’t happen very often.

    It’s really your parent’s decision, especially since it’s costly for some.

    barbizon is a school, not an agency. acting and modeling opportunities aren’t guaranteed for anyone.
    agents don’t pick anyone based on where they went to school. they pick you based on how much
    talent and ability you have.

    They’re scams
