Ratings and Reviews
Giving it a shot.
The app seems great. I just signed up, but the one negative thing I noticed is that, for most entertainers, rates are very varied depending on so many things. Only offering an hourly rate option for performers to display on the app isn’t good. It should either be left up for negotiation with clients or a range should be available. Thanks for listening and I hope to see what the app can do.

Thanks for your feedback Amy! If you'd like some recommendations on how to successfully price you can call one of our talent buyers at 877-81-TALENT or email us at email@example.com. Once a buyer attempts to book you there is an opportunity to finalize exact payment amount. We intend to include a "flat payment" option in the future, but we've found that the flat fee is often not what a buyer wants to use if they want to book for a limited or extended amount of time. What we recommend to talent is to estimate your average performance (i.e. 2 hours) and price (i.e. $1,000) and make your hourly rate accordingly (i.e. $500 per hour).
Hopefully this is a start.
I have always aspire to become an actress. What can I say? I’m a serial dreamer. Being from a city where acting talent is often over looked— Cincinnati and a world full of scammers that all created this fear of me trying new platforms. I wondered if relocating would increase auditioning chancing. Hopefully this app can assist me with getting gigs, starting my portfolio and potentially landing roles with bigger company’s before having to move to California, New York etc. All in all this idea is great and thank you for thinking about people like me that don’t know where to start or have opportunity. Just like the Wayans family I’ll create my opportunity. Thank you for this!
Needs Improvement. Could Be Better.
The app only allows you to search in the area you are in currently and does not allow you the option to search in areas you are willing to travel 😐... This was a poor oversight on production's behalf because, as many know, talent travels and the option to look for connections in areas you travel to should have been standard. There is nothing currently available in my home base area (Atlanta), which is disturbing because the music and movie industry here is pretty thick. It makes me feel as though the research has not been done to give information on talent seekers in my area. I'm hoping a whole load of updates come very soon.

Perilously - Atlanta Rocks!!!! We are currently only LIVE in Los Angeles and parts of the Northeast (Philly / NYC). We are extremely excited by an Atlanta launch in the near future and appreciate your feedback!
