THE BTA® DIFFERENCE
Unlike some London agencies who fear losing their clients to America and American agents, we actively encourage our local talent to think internationally from day one. We are proud to share clients with some of the biggest U.S. agencies, such as Abrams Artists Agency in New York and Greene & Associates in Los Angeles.
We are also signing more and more American and international actors as they realise the importance of having a strong U.K. rep to cover the increasing number of U.S. productions (and others) choosing to shoot in the U.K. under PACT/Equity, rather than in the U.S. under SAG-AFTRA.
When you consider that the primary job of an agent is to review, negotiate and sometimes sign contracts on a client’s behalf, actually studying Law – and especially Contract Law – could be seen as an obvious and essential prerequisite to becoming an agent. Yet, oddly, many agents and managers in the entertainment industry have had no legal training whatsoever.
BTA’s Founder and Senior Agent is currently studying for his Master’s in Law.
At BTA®, we place the artist first and foremost in our work. Not only is it the right thing for any representative to do morally, but it also makes great business sense as in doing so, everything else – the reputation, the rapid business growth and, yes, the money – they all take care of themselves.
We combine our artistic empathy and experience with business savvy and expertise, to represent our clients with care, understanding and balance.
Pro bono publicoThroughout 2019, BTA® will be supporting the national charity, Crisis
