LA TALENT MANAGER BETS ON BRIGHT FUTURE FOR AZ ACTORS
July 21, 2021, Phoenix, AZ-- Hollywood talent manager Robert Rossi brings ROSSI Talent Management (RTM) to the Valley of the Sun. The native Phoenician combines a variety of disciplines to offer a full service enterprise that includes scouting, developing, and producing talent for TV and Film.
RTM’s specialized workshops will give local kids a real feel for the Hollywood audition process. The workshops will offer a photo shoot by acclaimed LA photographer Robert "Katz" Kazandjian and A-list celebrity stylist Wesley O'Neil. Each participant will receive both a commercial and theatrical headshot for their portfolio. Also included are scene study evaluations with acting coaches from L.A.’s own Shari Shaw Studios and scene specialist Melissa Blanchard. The top 10 kids will be called back and offered representation by RTM for national TV and film management.
Rossi has a keen eye for what is fresh and upcoming in the world of casting. He scouts for a wide range of backgrounds, genders and ethnicities and specializes in representing deaf talent.
“Phoenix offers a cross spectrum of backgrounds that casting directors are looking for now more than ever,” said Rossi, who obtained a degree in Deaf Studies at CSUN, and is fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).
