This database was specifically designed to help our colleagues in the industry quickly discover and hire us.


Here and Ready is a targeted thread of communication where the entertainment industry can submit breakdowns, search talent, view resumes, watch reels and contact you or your reps directly.


Are those other sites actively lobbying on your behalf to build inclusive partnerships?


Plus, the Here and Ready community is truly it's own reward!

Our group is your virtual sisterhood where you can ask questions, share resources and celebrate our specific experiences and needs as our art overlaps commerce and life. And if you're not online, we offer recaps to help you stay in the conversation.
