How Far Will Your Agent Go for You? – ON THE GO – Episode 87

In this final part of our agent discussion suite, we talk about how far the relationship between agent and DP can extend.

If you’ve been following our car ride discussion with Kristen Tolle-Billings from Worldwide Production Agency and Kasper Notlev from ArtOfficial over the past few weeks, you will no doubt have come to understand by now that the relationship between the agent and the DP is much more than mere business transaction. The agent is a person who can really help you navigate the murky waters of your future career, as well as facilitate your growth as a professional by helping you network to make both professional and passion projects come to fruition.

This kind of relationship can sometimes mean that the agent goes above and beyond what you would normally expect of them. Kasper and Kristen tell us a couple of stories involving paying a client’s flight, helping them make rent, and Russian embassy Visa fixes.

It was a real pleasure to have both Kasper and Kristen on board this session of cinema5D ON THE GO at Camera Image Festival 2017. It was truly enlightening to discuss this aspect of a filmmaking career. Sometimes the right career move can be a lot more important than your next camera purchase decision!
