2. Can I have an agent while studying?
Students are welcome to have agent representation while studying at Screenwise – networking and industry experience while studying is beneficial to raising Students profiles.

At Screenwise we have a number of professional and independent work that comes through daily. If a student is not represented by an agent and is fit to meet the profile and demands of a casting brief, the office will submit them for professional work as well.
