Beware of and avoid this scam


JoAnn, take your daughter to an open call at any agency with digital photos that you take. Take in natural light-outside and with a clean face, no makeup. Regarding AMTC, I know a young lady that sold her car to go and total expense to fly there with her mother was $7000. She got a gig in India. Yep, this summer 2012 she will have to pay to fly to India, pay for her hotel for one month, pay for all her food and expenses, BUT she gets the "tears" from the magazine spread to put in her portfolio...NO money. She is not getting paid ANYTHING. SHE HAS TO PAY TO MODEL! AMTC IS A SCAM AND THE LOCAL AGENCY HERE IS AS WELL! They get paid to get these folks to go to AMTC.

AMTC seems Fishy to me!!!!


I just wanted to agree that AMTC (Actors, Models, and Talents for Christ) is a scam!!! Here is my story:
I am an singer/actor and I had been on a break from acting for a while until I heard about AMTC from a friend who heard about it on the radio. I went to the audition and had a pretty good time meeting the other people auditioning. There were mostly children with parents there and I, in my late 20s at the time, kind of stuck out. I did alright in the audition and went home. That evening I received a call from them commending me on a great performance and that I was being offered a spot in the convention. This all sounded great until they told me that there would be a $3,500 charge, and I wasn't even sure that this charge covered everything. I respectfully declined after a night of thinking about it.

I just want to say that there is no reason that one needs to pay that amount of money, especially up front. This is a scam and if the BBB backs it, it still has a lot of "scam-like" behavior. If you really want to show your acting/singing/dancing abilities and don't mind paying for it, you can attend an actual scouting conference. The one I attended was called NETC New England Theatre Conference and I would consider it to be a pretty intense conference. I went for 4 consecutive years and the cost did not exceed $45.00, for the entire thing. THAT'S IT!!!! You do need to send a head shot and resume and based on your resume, you may or may not get accepted. You basically send in your stuff in the fall and you wait to hear if you got in. Then if you get a spot, you prepare about 2 min. of material. If your acting only, you do two contrasting monologues. If you're singing only, two contrasting songs, if singing/acting, you do a song and a monologue. There is some instruction for dancers, but I'm not quite sure what they are. I would be prepared to dance/move even if you're just singing or something as you might be called for a dance call back. I went and basically worked for summer stocks and regional theatres for 5 years. http://www.netconline.org/netc-theatre-auditions.php
You can also try the Straw Hats, which are held in NYC. I'm not quite sure what the cost is, but I'm pretty sure it's no more than $100. You can check them out here: http://www.strawhat-auditions.com/ . There's also the UPTAs. Their registration fee is also like $50.00. I've had a few friends that are performers that have gone through those as well. http://www.upta.org/

Well, I hope this helped a little for some of the talent out there. I don't know all of the talent scouts out there, but I'm pretty sure none of the really reputable ones charge almost 4,000 just to be in their presence. I would suggest Backstage, or Backstage East, or SAG or something like that to see what open calls there. But whatever you do, please don't put your money into this company. From experience, they are a SCAM!!!!! If for those who are trying to say they are not, well, AMTC needs to lower their prices because they are doing a pretty bad job of showing that they are reputable.

ATMC SCAM!


MJ Brunette
I went with my adult niece to the auditions here in MN last Saturday, April 13th. They PRETEND to be Christian-based. They advertised that their services are aimed towards people of ALL ages and so my niece, who's 50, signed up, after hearing about this on KTIS, our local Christian radio. She has a BA in music and also has performed major roles in many plays, as well as writes her own Christian music. They PROMISE to either phone with results of acceptance or send a denial email. They didn't do either. They LIE. Would Christ LIE? No! Therefore, they are NOT Christian-based; they are a SCAM to get kids into this, as the only people they obviously allow to attend their convention are kids up to, perhaps 30. They show this lengthy video of mainly children and young people performing on stage and NOT one single ADULT is included in their video, although they stated they cater to people of ALL ages: I believe they advertised child to 83, which pretty much states everyone who breathes. They obviously WANT MONEY, is their bottom line. They are definitely a scam! DO NOT EVER USE their services!
