What does Nine9 stand for?
The 99% of models and actors aren’t represented by an agency and we are helping them take over the entertainment industry. Nine9 provides the 99% with the tools, opportunities and support to begin and advance their careers.
What does “The UnAgency” mean?
We are not an agency. We help provide talent opportunities by connecting them with the industry professionals who are looking for models and actors for their projects. We also provide talent with the tools and support they need. Unlike an agency, we do not charge any commissions to talent or casting directors and industry professionals who use our talent. We also provide free weekly virtual workshops from various industry professionals for all of our talent to gain training and to be prepared for auditions and bookings. Hence we call ourselves “The UN Agency”.
If you’re not an agency, then what is Nine9?
We are an entertainment and marketing company that provides paid and non-paid opportunities, exposure and knowledge development to aspiring and experienced models and actors in the mainstream entertainment industry. We also offer completely free services to casting directors, directors, production companies, agencies and other industry professionals. We set up in-person and self-taped auditions and bookings and unlike casting companies and agencies, they can book our talent at no charge or commission.
How is Nine9 different from other online casting companies?
We provide our talent much more than just a website with a database of local casting calls. We have a knowledgeable and dedicated staff who are willing and able to help our talent go through castings, upload photos and measurements, and offer guidance on the industry. Not only do we have a database of public castings our talent can submit themselves to, we also have a Castings Department located in our corporate office that helps casting directors and industry professionals find talent for their projects. We not only help talent find opportunities in their area but nationwide. We cross-market our talent to any area they are interested and able to attend bookings in. We also provide free weekly virtual workshops to our talent with industry professionals in acting, modeling, health and beauty to increase and build our talent’s training and skills.
How do I place my NIne9 Talent Account on hold?
Our talent can pause or cancel their Nine9 membership at any time since we do not place our talent under a contract which limits their options or locks them into exclusivity for a designated period of time. You simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Talent Services team at 800-989-1490 with the pause or cancel request and we will be able to assist with your specific needs.
Are you a modeling/acting school?
No, Nine9 is a talent listing service though we do offer our talent the opportunity to attend various virtual workshops to improve their training, knowledge, skills and experience.
