Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
The Talent INC Corporate office will organize a National talent showcase to be held in Orlando, Florida in the spring and summer of each year. Talent INC pre-screens up and coming talent from around the United States. They specialize in taking raw talent and developing this talent to the full potential of each individual performer. Talent INC also markets talent from small markets and introduces them to agencies and clients from markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Japan, Milan, Paris to name a few.
The Talent INC experience leads to a highly revered National Showcase where each talent can perform for representatives from these top markets in showcases featuring TV Commercials, Film Scenes, Monologues, Runway, Photography, Swim Suit, Singing and Dancing. After performing for these National and International industry professionals, each performer is able to network and interview with them to receive feedback, and possibly contract offers.
Being named President was a natural progression for Joshua Meeks. Mr. Meeks has been coordinating and planning the Talent INC showcases since 2005. He has introduced and negotiated contracts for models and actors in all major markets nationally and internationally. Mr. Meeks comes from a Corporate Retail and Fashion back ground in Management positions like American Eagle Outfitters. Joshua Meeks is committed to keeping the quality of development high as well as the best opportunities for Talent INC clients.
Meeks says, "I am taking on this challenge with pleasure. This job is not work for me. To see our talent working for clients like Elle, Glamour, Victoria’s Secret, Abercrombie and Fitch, GQ, Cosmopolitan, major motion pictures and in various TV series is a reward like no other."
