Founder and CEO of Nine9, Anthony Toma knows firsthand what it is like to be overlooked, or to be the last one chosen. In this YouTube video, he talks about growing up and being one of those kids that wasn’t part of the popular 1%. With his company , he has chosen to focus on the 99% of those who want to break out in the acting, modeling, or entertainment industry.
According to Toma, 99% of aspiring entertainers do not have representation (agents). He is quick to point out that Nine9 is not an agency, in fact he has termed in an “UnAgency.” One of the differences between a traditional agency and Toma’s UnAgency is that they do not get a commission from any of their client’s bookings. Instead they focus on training and preparation, giving these aspiring entertainers skill sets and a complete portfolio and what Nine9 knows.
There are many out there who know they have what it takes, they have the voice, or the face, or the ability to take on another character. Unfortunately, very few will be able to get representation. Anthony wants Nine9 to be that bridge that gets you there. They have people working for, and with them that have years of experience in the industry.
His goal is to help others to “Live out their dreams” and doesn’t feel like that should only be happening to an elite few, that 1%. If this sounds interesting to you, fill out an application at www.Nine9.com.
