I hope you are doing well! It sounds like you have been pretty darn busy since the workshop has been over. Congrats on your latest movie! You’ll have to share the title when you’re allowed to. When does Underground come out? I know it’s soon. I keep looking for a commercial, even though I’m probably too much of a chicken to watch a lot of it with my eyes open! It looks scary!)
It’s so odd to be back home after spending so much time in L.A. this summer. We ended up staying until September 3rd. What a fun summer it was. We can’t wait to come back for pilot season!!!!!
I just wanted to share what is going on with Justin. After we got home, I sent out the letters and headshots to the Seattle agents that you had sent out to us. We have interviewed with two so far and have another interview at the end of the month. I am so impressed with Colleen Bell Modeling and Talent. Colleen submitted him for an audition upon receipt of his headshot. This is what she sent me:
Dear Justin (and mom –
I received your headshot in the mail and am MORE than interested in talking to you about representation with the Bell Agency in Seattle. Your resume is impressive and your look is darling
Your headshot came in at perfect timing. One of our largest casting directors in Seattle is having an audition on Monday 9/27 for a Commercial – I scanned the picture and sent it over to them because they had asked for a 10 yr old boy – and I knew she would love your look
They would like to have you audition for it on Monday if you are avail.
We would only represent you for this job if you choose to audition but would LOVE TO HAVE YOU COME IN TO OPEN CALL in the near future. You can get all details to our open call on our website atwww.colleenbellagency.com click on Open Call tab.

He didn’t book the job, but it was so exciting to go on an audition so quickly upon arriving back home – especially in Seattle! She is also trying to submit him for an ongoing modeling job (1-3 times per month). We are planning to sign with her. We met with them last week and they offered Justin representation. She has the passion and enthusiasm that you described as what to look for in an agent. They also seem top notch. I thought you’d want to know….
We are also heading to L.A. for a quick trip on Thursday this week. Carla booked a movie audition for Justin so we are flying down for the day. We’ll keep plugging away at this, it’s only a matter of time…..
See you in a few months! Hello to CGTV as well) We miss you guys!
