We specialize in scouting, developing and placing models and actors in markets nationally and internationally. At STRUT, we work with models and actors ages 5 and up whose aspirations are to work in fashion, print, commercials, tv and film. Upon developing our aspiring talent in the areas of modeling and acting we serve as a mother agency to place those with star potential to the top agencies in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Paris, Milan, London, Greece, Tokyo and more.
The STRUT approach is simple. We know how to spot a diamond in the rough and develop them into a STAR! Our team has over four (4) decades of experience in the modeling and acting industry. We have our hand on the pulse of what it takes to succeed in these everchanging, and highly competitive industries, and we are here to help you navigate. Since opening our doors in 2013, we have built relationships with agents, managers and casting directors who we are able to showcase our talent to for placement and direct bookings.
