What We Need & What You Get
interCulture casting & management is in the start-up phase. Australia has approximately 47% of its population from a non Anglo Saxon background. This is currently not represented in the main-stream media, on stage, or in the web space insofar as it emanates from this country. Our business will represent and market actors, singers, dancers, choreographers, presenters, spokespeople, models and skilled artists from the diasporas of Asia, The Middle East, Middle Europe, the sub-continent, Pacific Islands and beyond.
Our model is to not only divide the business into both casting for feature film, TV, stage, event, corporate training, single projects, festivals and the like, but also to represent and manage the careers of up and coming artists, and artists with promise whose current management is not adding value.
We need $15,000 to open the business and have the following infrastructure in place:
- Social Media
- Office Space (Surry Hills, artistic hub of Sydney)
- Business relationships
- Customer Database
- Venture Partners
Like all start-ups we are rich in intellectual property, contacts, experience, and potential. We are the ONLY NON TRADITIONAL ENTERTAINMENT AGENCY currently in Australia and as such this gives us a unique selling proposotion and market advantage/position.
- Help us create the first NON ANGLO SAXON ARTISTS AGENCY IN AUSTRALIA
- Be part of one of the most progressive multi-cultural high visibility businesses yet conceived.
- By assisting us in start up mode, you will have the pleasure and satisfaction of seeing the incremental change to the way Media progesses to a fully representational model of Australia's multicultural society.
