Well one common way in which agencies seem to do it, is by each agent having their own list of actors which they alone represent and deal with every aspect of those individuals affairs.
Where I wish to differ, would be by there being one set of actors, represented by all agents. But each agent, just dealing with the actors in say all commercial work, or just theatre work, or just television and film work.
And then, either an overall commission is split between everyone, or perhaps they receive a commission fee for their said department.
So if that were the case, could you take people on, on a self-employed basis or would they have to be employees?
