Nutshells Talent Management represents professional young actors. Tina Johnson is Talent Manager and Owner. Tina formerly worked as a talent agent for J. Michael Bloom & Associates (which has since merged with Innovative Artists in New York City), collaborating with top casting directors to procure jobs for clients in film, television, theatre and Broadway projects. In addition to her background as a talent representative, Tina has also held freelance positions in film and television production.
Nutshells finds and develops talent. We carefully guide our clients through the booking process, from the audition to landing the job. This includes audition preparation with sides, selecting songs and music material for theatre, and choosing photographers for headshots. We also assist minors with Child Performer Permits and establishing Coogan trust accounts. The idea is to allow our clients to focus on their talent and simply to have fun!
We have commercial and legit/theatrical relationships with leading New York young talent agencies. Additionally, we are a member of Breakdowns Services, a private service used solely by casting directors, producers and talent representatives to share actors headshots, resumes and video links. Breakdowns is a valued and highly respected tool used by industry insiders and informs its members of the most up to the minute jobs available for actors.
