  • Why do I need this?
    If you are an un-repped aspiring actor in the Texas market, you will save money in the long run by working with ASA.
  • Is ASA a talent agency?
    Not exactly, though if and when ready, ASA clients will be eligible for submissions via sister company Variant Talent.
  • What is Custom Clips?
    ASA matches actors with writers to create original scenes which play to performance strengths. An expert crew shoots on location with the help of an on set coach during rehearsal. You aren't getting this anywhere else.
