Tower Talent, a full service development center and marketing firm for aspiring performers and models, has opened a new location in Melville. The center scouts for, selects, and coaches talent ages 4 and older. The staff at Tower Talent trains, develops, and promotes its actors and models and prepares clients to gain representation from an agency and book jobs in commercials, print, television, and film. The process begins immediately to get their foot in the door to gain exposure, book jobs, build confidence, and teach life skills.
“Its exciting for us to see someone’s dream come from within,” says owner Megan Tower. Tower Talent works with any kids, teens, or young adults who have a dream to break into the entertainment industry or who just find acting or modeling to be a fun hobby. The center brings top agents and casting directors into its office every other week to interview performers and models, which otherwise would be done in Manhattan.
Actors learn industry skills like how to audition, recite a commercial, work with scene partners, and act for a camera. Models learn runway walking, stances, and how to work with different directors.
