Hello Actor Friends!
The City of Los Angeles has a new City Attorney, and his name is Mike
Feuer. He has said on the record that he is committed to protecting the
rights of consumers, and specifically the rights of actors in Los
Angeles. This is great news for all performers who have been waiting for action!
in order to get funding for investigations that will help put a stop to
abuse and exploitation in the acting community, the new City Attorney
needs to hear from you! I can't just send 100 emails to him; they must
come from concerned actors like you.
So here's the favor I ask of you:
If you have paid for a casting
director or agent/manager workshop ANYTIME in the past, ever, and
you're sick and tired of the direction that the business has taken, and
are frustrated that the only way for you to gain access to the hundreds
of TV shows and films is to pay a casting assistant or associate
anywhere from $25 - $75 (or that you are asked to pay as much as $399 for an agent/manager showcase for consideration for representatiom), then PLEASE write the new City Attorney a note.
It can be short and to the point, or you can elaborate. But whatever
opinion you express, rest assured that your name, info, email info,
etc. will NOT be used in any investigation. If, however, you
decide you'd LIKE to be a part of any investigations and publicly
testify against those who you believe are taking advantage of the
acting community, feel free to add that in your note. Otherwise, your
info will not be shared.
Please address your letters as follows:
City Attorney of Los Angeles
and send it via his assistant, Karla Cortez at
We're close. With your help, we can make a difference. Thank you!
