One Source Talent Agency Reviews

I need to know if One Source Talent a scam rip off or it is legitimate.   I have on interview with them tonight in New York  and I need to know if it is a scam or not because I do not want to go out to Manhattan for nothing.

If there are any models or actors that work with them please answer.  What have they done for you and is it worth it.  I would also like to know what was it like when you were there? Thanks for your help.

This is what I found on them:

“They are a nationally active talent services company. It was established in 2003 by Anthony Toma. It provides casting directors, producers, photographers, and advertisers with easy access to talent from across the country, he developed the operational structure as a combination of sophisticated technology and dedicated professional service. They has offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, San Diego, New York, Chicago, Miami, Phoenix, and Los Angeles.

They have a interactive database of searchable talent. Whether clients need an actor who is male or female, young or old, tall or short, they make it easy for clients to find the right talent for their needs through a simple, user-friendly search function. Conversely, their system significantly improves the odds of aspiring talent making their mark as an actor or model through industry workshops and access to information on casting calls and auditions from all over the United States.”

What do you guys think? Do you think its a scam or are they a legit company?

    I agreed with the other comments. One Source Talent is not a scam!!! They have helped me get my foot into the industry and now I am signed with a major agency because of them. When I signed up with them several years ago I was just thinking of doing this for fun. But they right away saw potential in me. The moment they saw me on the first interview the girl told me that I would be a perfect fit to be a high fashion model. I signed up with them went on a few jobs here and there and one day a girl from Talent Services called me and said that she set up an audition for a major modeling agency (don’t want to disclose name) I was soo excited. A few days passed and I went to the audition and got signed with them to an exclusive contract. At first I thought that One Source Talent might be upset since I had to leave but that was not the case. Seemed like they were happier for me than I was. I didn’t owe them anything and I was on my way to bigger things. Now can someone explain to me how that is a scam?

    I just came back from my second interview at One Source Talent and they have been nothing but professional toward me. Since the first moment I walked in the office I had a great experience. I decided to sign with them and DO NOT have one regret. I know in order to get into the acting industry it will take time and I know One Source will help me with my live long goals.

    One Source Talent is NOT an agency. Most people seem to think that they are but they are not. They are a company that helps out models and actors get jobs. In my opinion it’s 10 times better because they do not charge agency fees. A lot of people seem to think that if you are with an agency everything is Free and that is far from the truth. A lot of people do not realize that they are getting a good amount of their pay deducted by the agency. One Source does not do that, they have nothing to do with what you get paid and they do not charge the casting director to use their talent. I love what OST is doing.

  16. Johnny from Texas says:

    A friend of mine has had some acting experience but I feel that if he didn’t have crooked teeth he could go much further with his acting career. Any thoughts?

  19. Brea says:

    I have an appointment in downtown Chicago today at 6:30. I am scared because I have very low self-esteem. I hope One Source Talent isnt too hard on me. I think I would be crushed if they turn me down.

  22. Marissa H says:

    i Dont know how old this post is but i am going to comment anyway, and hopefully i get some feed back. Hi my name is marissa i have an interview with one source on saturday and i am a nervous wreck and it is only wens. i dont know what to expect , i am not experienced in anyway. i mean of course i love taking pics of myself but i have no idea how modeling is going to go for me. im afraid i may not have the look, afraid i might be too big or too old I want to do runways so im thinking maybe im too short. but one thing that i do know is that i Crave being in front of the camera. and the biggest issue is i have no idea how much this is going to cost me. a million and one things are running through my mind rite now. Can someone plz give me some tips on how they are and let me know how u like it. thanks ever so much

  23. Jordyn Drue says:

    hi i really want to sign up but i am afraid these people might just be saying stuff

  24. Ken s says:

    I would like to say just a few short things that come to my mind. First, I no very little about the agency One Source Talent Company. I believe in giving a situation a chance and not taking here say as law. In the bible Mathew 6:33 clearly maps out a way to go about life. In summary, here is the key. For myself I seek God and his rightiousness in everything. As the scripture clearly states, and all things will be provided. I think confidence which comes from faith is key in being successful in anything. I choose to be positive and believe God has instilled each of us special talents and the ability to make choices.To believe in ones self is to unlock the chains that hold one back from reaching their potential. I will fill my dreams , so can you or anyone that dares to believe…….?

  25. Bree says:

    well me and my sister have an appointment tomorrow, and Ive been reading all these reviews..I mean I’d be heart broken if they dont accept me… so now im kinda scared..sooo…what about One Source talent in Atlanta??

  26. Chervonne says:

I just dont know what to do anymore can you please help me?

  27. Shay says:

    I submitted my son’s pic and got called the next day for an interview. I will be going into the one in LA. The lady said there will be no fees involved. Just want to evaluate my 4 year old. Just want to shout out to anyone that knows or have previous or existing experience with One Source Talent and give me some insight. I have seen some bad feedback but quite a few moderate and good ones. However, is only in NY or other states, anyone knows about anything of LA branch? Kindly advise. I find it weird to have an interview at 7pm????????
    Thanks.

  40. Michelle says:

    I just signed up today, and they called me back within a week. My mom is convinced it is not a scam and does not want me to blow an oppurtunity. If it costs, how much? Please answer. Thanks so much.

  41. M.S.B. says:

    I worked for that company for a few years and they are a great company. They really care for their models/actors and always look for ways to improve and become a stronger company in the industry. If you get signed with them, they create an account for you that you can log into so you can keep communicating with them. They submit you to castings in your area that you meet the criteria for and if the casting director/agency likes you and requests you then one source talent will call/email you to let you know and ask if you are interested/available for the gig. They also provide public castings that you can see and submit to on a daily basis right from the account they created for you.

    you can always call/go visit if you want to ask them more questions and they are always happy to help from when i worked there!

  42. one source talent dallas scam reviewer says:

    I am going to sign up with them. I really need some modeling and acting experiece and this seems like my best option. I lived in NV for 10 years and just moved to Dallas, TX. I hope everything works out.

  43. Robert Simms says:

    From my understanding One Source is not an agency. They make you a comp card and offer auditions and castings. It is a service. If they advertised themselves as an agency that it would not be legit, it would be a scam. I read a ton of stuff online, but the majority of people are very ignorant and dont understand the concept.

    I am going to sign up with them and see how well they work. For me, it is very difficult to start and I dont have time to look for auditions. I will report back here and let everyone know how it worked out.

  44. Marianne says:

    Hi. I just had my first interview with one source talent today. I’m not very sure if its a scam because they DID NOT even mention money. At first I thought it was a scam but im not really sure now .I cant really listen to what everyone say’s and has to experience it for myself.

    But they did give me an invitation when i was there to come back monday they told me to wear skinny jeans high heels and a tank top.They really liked me, but i was just wondering is it really a scam someone let me know PLEASE.I really dont want to get my hopes up for nothing.

  45. Jared - Dallas Talent says:

    Two months after becoming a talent with One Source Talent, I have been chosen for two extra jobs. One was with The Good Guys currently on Fox. I was cast as a motel resident with car.

    I’ve also been cast as an extra for the hit show Friday Night Lights. The word says you must learn to crawl before you can walk. Because of the assistance and resources of OST, I’ve been able to get my foot in the door and crawl. With my hard work, I plan to not only be walking in the business, but running in it. Thanks One Source! They are def not a scam!

  46. tana says:

    One Source Talent’s is a service it starts when talent are interviewed and not everyone is approved. They have a professional talent Specialist that evaluates the model or actor. These trained specialists cam recognize who has talent and what the entertainment market is searching.

    At the moment a model/actor has been interviewed and approved, they are given full access to their network of jobs, castings/auditions, this database is a a resource that has many opportunities.

    They also have a lot of resources, that include an interactive zed/comp card for talent to submit themselves (digital or traditional).

    Offices in: Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, L.A., Miami, Phoenix, Atlanta, New York, San Diego, and Washington D.C.

  47. Dan Ankin says:

    Does anyone have information or reviews on One Source Talent in Dallas?

    Like what kind of services they have.

    If they are an agency or just basic stuff?? Thanks if you can help.

  48. Teresa says:

    I’m considering going to a modeling agency but I’m not quite sure how to start. What are your experiences at One Source Talent? Have they helped you reach your goal as a model or actor? It is a good modeling and acting company? And finally is it a Scam or Legit?

    -Teresa

  49. Matty says:

    So if a business is part of the BBB they are legit right? From my understanding they make sure the are not a scam right.

  50. Miami Model says:

    Yes, they are part of the BBB.

  51. Sammy Leduc says:

    Hello I was wondering if One Source Talent was a member of the Better Business Bureau? I Heard you should never do any business with companies that are not associated with the BBB or do not have a good score with them.

    I Live in Chicago.

    If anyone can help I would strongly appreciate it. Thanks!

  52. Jon Stringe says:

    One source talent is real. I have done well with them. Just remember you have to work hard and do not give up. You will not become famous over night!

  53. Tim Augusto says:

    My sister is with One Source Talent. She has been with them for a while now. i know they got her jobs, she only does it part time tho (she is young).

    I think they called her in like 2 weeks or something. She sent in her photo, her name is Dominique. She gives One source talent a good review. I hope everything works out for you! good luck!

  54. Lisa says:

    Hey, my name is Lisa. I am a talent with One Source Talent. I know how you feel, I had cold feet at first too. But my mom is the one that talked me into it. I became a member back in 2006, I just turned 17, and it was always my dream to become a model. It wasn’t easy, I had to work real hard. OST had me come to meet and greets with real models that helped me learn how to walk and helped me develop as a model. Im here in the Detroit area, and they have about one every 3 weeks or so.

    Live out your dreams, whatever they are, you have to work hard and be committed.
