MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE
Real People is a Georgia corporation founded in Atlanta in 1987. We have developed a superior reputation over the years for representing professional talent for print advertising, broadcast and film. As a professional talent service corporation, we represent talent throughout the Southeast. Although most of our talent is Alabama and Georgia based, we do book a significant amount of out-of-state talent either direct or through reciprocal arrangements with other superior agencies. We have very strong relationships with agencies in Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Milwaukee, Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, and Little Rock. These relationships allow us to offer our clients the widest possible selection of qualified talent. We also offer three levels of professional casting services. Whether the job is produced in Alabama or one of these other cities, we can handle all the casting and talent selections for the entire job while working within the budget established by the client. Not only do we save you time, we save you money. As our client, you will deal with one source for problems. We will act as paymaster allowing the client to pay all the talent for a project with one check. Although Real People is not a union agency, we are throughly knowledgeable and experienced in AFTRA and SAG talent procedures. Alabama is a right-to-work state, which means that non-union talent can be employed in union productions in accordance with the Taft-Hartley Act. If your production requires talent skills that only SAG actors can provide, we can help you understand the complexities of union work rules and rates, forecast a budget and obtain a union paymaster. We can help you complete your obligations under a One-Performance-Only (OPO) contract. Our mission at Real People is to find the right talent for your job. Your complete satisfaction is our only goal. If we don’t have the right person for your job, we know exactly how to find them.
