Today’s column is column #78 Discussion of Vaccination Policy, IATSE Strike, etc. with Youth Agent, Ted Maier of Avalon Artists Group.  

I want to hear Ted’s thoughts on the vaccination policy for child actors on set; how the looming IATSE strike would affect production; and I want him to reiterate his thoughts detailed in a prior column, on how prospective child actors not in the main LA/NY markets can acquire an agent.

I really want you to view the visual column as Ted goes into great detail on these subjects. 

Some bullet points discussed:

  • Zone A production vaccination policy states any actor over 12 years old must be fully vaccinated
  • Other Zones (locations) may have a different policy
  • IATSE strike could shut down most if not all film/tv production
  • Best way for prospective actors to get representation is via one of the various showcases that are either in person/online
  • He just participated in an online showcase and saw 100 actors and has interest in a few

Thank you for watching and have a wonderful week! Goodbye from both of us.
