What is the difference between an Exclusive and a Non-Exclusive contract?
you are looking for an agent be very careful when it comes down to the contract. Exclusive
contracts are common, but may not serve you as well as they serve the agency.
Non-Exclusive contracts will probably suit your career needs better as they ensure the agent works for you!
Exclusive contract with a talent agent means that your agent represents
you for everything you do everywhere. They represent you in all you do
all over the world where ever you go and whatever you do. Be
careful with these contracts because most exclusive contracts entitle
the agent to their percentage commissions even if they did not get you
the work and also want their percentage of commissions from any work you do
with anyone you meet through their introduction or otherwise during the
term of the contract and this percentage can be payable for your career
lifetime even if you cancel the contract. This can really restrict you career.
is type of contract is better for you as it is much less restricting
than the Exclusive Contract. A Non-Exclusive contract basically states
that you can have more than one agent and is a so a popular choice for
actors, performers and models. The agent that gets paid is the one who
sent you to the audition. This makes them work harder for you.
