Hi, has anyone had any experiences with Reality Check Management?
I'm considering applying to join them, but I could not find any reviews of them online.
Thanks!

Represented me previously Andrea. I had one decent self-tape from them for a feature film. Rest of auditions were for non-speaking commercial roles. The photographer John Clark said they were a n extra agency.

Yes, I was put off when they asked me to have new head shots done but through their agency for a fee. In the past I would be happy to have new photos done but by a decent photographer known to me. I then asked what percentage commission they charge. I was told that usually it's 33.33% but on some jobs 20%. When I mentioned that this rate of commission was unheard of in my experience I was told times have changed. Modelling agents may charge this rate of commission but 10% to 20% at the most is the going rate for theatrical agents and usually no more than 15%. They advertised on another Star Now for actors, I wonder how many fell for the publicity shots request.

Hi Jeff
Thanks for the useful information! I agree, 33.3% is much too high for commission in my experience.
It's a good idea to have a few decent photographers in your diary that you can go back to. When I have had a good experience with a photographer, I keep their details for future reference.
A newbie could be caught out by getting headshots done through a dodgy agency and paying way too much!
