Bending greetings to you and happy new year, the UKWUBENDA and his team wishes you well as you read though this carefully sorted out info to help educate you in some aspect of your career.
So many of us in this line of work #entertainment doesn’t really know their game play or which game play sits right for whom, so it affects the choice of who to employ or contract for a particular service in the entertainment industry.
Judging with the headline caption, some would ask WHY & HOW? Kindly read through below and your questions will be answered.
A TALENT MANAGER (also known as an artist manager, band manager or music manager) is an individual or company who guides the professional career of artists in the entertainment industry. The responsibility of the talent manager is to oversee the day-to-day business affairs of an artist; advise and counsel talent concerning professional matters, long-term plans and personal decisions which may affect their career.
If you are a persuasive person with an eye for talent, you might enjoy working as a talent manager. Talent managers help many different kinds of talented individuals succeed in the entertainment industry. Schools offering Art degrees can also be found in these popular choices.
1. The roles and responsibilities of a talent manager vary slightly from industry to industry, as do the commissions to which the manager is entitled. For example, a music manager’s duties differ from those managers who advise actors, writers, or directors. A manager can also help artists find an agent, or help them decide when to leave their current agent and identify who to select as a new agent.
2. Talent agents have the authority to make deals for their clients while managers usually can only informally establish connections with producers and studios but do not have the ability to negotiate contracts.
Hope this has been able to clarify you on what is expected of a talent manager. In time the UKWUBENDA would be letting us know some of the responsibilities attached and assigned roles to some offices in the entertainment industry.
