Industry Professional Comments

It is written, 'Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising' (Isaiah 60:3). At the AMTC SHINE Convention, God brings together many of the top Agents, Managers, Casting Directors in the world. They come from secular, family-friendly, and Christian media. AMTC averages between 50 and 100 VIP's at each event and guarantees a VIP:Performer ratio of 1:10. By bringing career makers to SHINE, God is opening doors for His stars to SHINE throughout the world. In addition to scouting AMTC talent, these industry professionals also conduct over 40 VIP seminars. Therein, AMTC offers its performers an unprecedented educational and networking opportunity.

The opportunities that are presented by participating at AMTC are endless. If you don’t participate, you may miss out on so much of your potential and your dreams!

I have no idea why, but I think there was more viable talent - especially in the adult realm - at this convention than I’ve ever seen. A lot of them were “directs,” as it turned out. I know I’m not the only judge who felt that way, but whatever you’ve been doing, keep it up!

It was great seeing everyone at AMTC and I’ll keep you posted on the callback kids. Hopefully they’ll be able to come out to LA to meet with everyone at KSR. I also wanted to let you know about Avion Baker, I found her at AMTC a few years ago and she now recurrs on HBO’s “True Blood” and is the voice of Uniqua in the cartoon “The Backyardigans.” Maybe next year she can come out to AMTC as a past success story. Hope all is well and stay cool.

With over 50 plus years in the Industry, I have always held myself to a higher standard of excellence. In that light I have endeavored to only work with those of a similar heart. As a casting director for a Fortune 500 company, I am bound to a company code of conduct that prohibits me from associating with unethical companies. I could not act as a VIP scout for AMTC, if they had anything but the highest standards. AMTC is more ethical, righteous, and caring than any other talent search that I have ever attended. I am uplifted to see the love, and support that the contestants receive, and always touched by the respect that their dreams are given. So many parents have written to me to say that attending AMTC changed their child’s life. The educational to be gained at AMTC is not available anywhere else. There is no way that anyone starting out on the journey to a professional modeling or performing career could personally meet the 70 plus industry reps who attend convention. Those agents, managers, casting directors and music industry reps are par non. They represent the cream of the crop, and I am personally awed to be in their company.

I had such a good time at AMTC! The talent that attended your event was very impressive. The entire staff was very helpful, professional and kept things running beautifully. I would be thrilled to participate again in the future. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
