So you sign with a swanky top 5 Hollywood Agency. Wow! The moment we've all been waiting for. Suddenly you're having "hot" conversations about your "hot" projects, yes plural "hot" projects, the same projects that couldn't see the light of day 3 months ago, 3 days ago, even 3 minutes ago, no one cared about
By a stroke of luck, your one non-jealous friend pitches you to their "hot" agency and that "hot" agent signs you. So now you're "hot." You start wearing "hot" clothes, you drive around in a "hot" way, your agent even calls you on his "hot" cell phone, just wanting to chat about "the pitch" and life is amazing! The world took a 180 turn from shite to flight! For 3 "hot" seconds! Suddenly a week then... two weeks go by, and your hot agent, decides that he did all that he can do and that no one is interested, and "hit me up when have 10 new projects" and you're like, "Let's have lunch, or coffee and talk about this! Surely everyone didn't pass?" And then he doesn't respond to that email. And then you have the horrible realization that you went from the "hot" list to the "not" list. Because your agent probably talked to about 5 people about your 10 projects and one ass-hole in development said, "I think we already passed on that" and then you've been demoted to what I like to call the agent ice age.
It's so crappy. But just remember, you might be feeling cold, and maybe you got frost bight on your nose and finger tips, but the only one who decides if your projects are hot are you. So don't be fooled by the rocks that I got... I'm still Jenny from the block, and so is your agent. He's just some dude after all that doesn't want to lose his job.
