How The Process Works:
Once your Actors Access profile is linked to Model Club, they will begin to submit you for principal roles in feature films, TV shows, TV pilots, and commercials. Model Club does not automatically submit anyone for low budget or ultra low budget SAG roles, however these projects occur frequently in NY, and if you would like to be submitted, you must let Model Club know. Model Club will not submit for extra work. If you book a job through Breakdown Services, all checks and residuals must be sent directly to Model Club from the payroll company for deduction of the commission. As a benefit for members of New England Actors, you pay 8% of your gross earnings* to Model Club vs. the usual 10% commission.
Model Club has dedicated staff to review all breakdowns and will submit you based on your Actors Access profile and New England Actor profile. It is essential that you keep your actors access profile up to date. If you fit the role, you must trust Model Club will submit you, please do not hound them for every role you may receive from Actors Access. Actors Access email alerts are imperfect - they sometimes send emails to actors who do not fit the role! Having Model Club will help assure your look and skill set are matched to the principal role. There is a 2 part screening process to ensure that you do not travel to NYC for a role that doesn’t fit you; Model Club is only submitting you for roles that are a match for you, and the casting directors are then selecting people from the submissions that they feel best fit the role. However, if your profile is inaccurate, there is no guarantee that you will receive correct auditions.
+ Please keep in mind that actors often receive only 24-48 hours notice for auditions in NYC.
+ Model Club will not submit actors on Breakdown Services to any projects in New England as to not interfere with any representation talent may currently have in the New England states.
* The 2% discount on commissions (8% rather than 10%) is applicable only for adult talent (18+ at time of booking) who come to Model Club through New England Actors. Talent linked to Model Club on Breakdown Services prior to joining this group are not eligible for the discount on commission. By linking your profile to Model Club on breakdown services, talent agrees to have all checks sent directly to Model Club in Boston on projects Model Club books talent for through Breakdown Services; to allow the commission to be deducted from all session fees, residuals, and any other checks connected to that project; allow Model Club to act as your representation for all contract negotiations and future renegotiations for the particular project. This agreement applies only to projects that Model Club submits talent for through Breakdown Services and may be terminated at anytime. However, termination does not exempt talent from paying all future commissions on jobs previously booked by Model Club through breakdown services.
