Advertises that a big name Director for a new motion picture or well known TV program is coming into your area looking for actors and actresses. The situation may involve an acting or modeling school.
You are told you have "great potential", however, you will need acting lessons at a cost of between $1500 and $3000.
A NO GUARANTEE CLAUSE IS USUALLY A GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT WORK OR GET ANY OF THE THINGS PROMISED!
Ask them to put in writing that you will appear in a motion picture or television show of any kind. Some organizations heavily promote acting lessons, and the only parts they really get you (IF ANY) are parts as "EXTRAS" WHERE YOU ARE MERELY PART OF THE SCENERY RATHER THAN AN ACTRESS. Keep in mind, it takes no training to be an EXTRA in a movie. Some Movie Companies have even asked people who are merely passing by the movie set to be EXTRAS.
Ask them to show you a film of a person from the Washington, DC area who has appeared in a motion picture or television show of any kind, as an actor/actress, and NOT merely as an Extra.
Because this type of organization has been in the Washington, DC area many times before.
