Budding child and adult actors can gain the feel of Hollywood and polish their acting skills when they access support from a talent management company that recently opened in North Central.

Hollywood talent manager Robert Rossi brought his ROSSI Talent Management (RTM) to Sammie & Dannie Vintage Boutique at 4540 N. Seventh St. A native Phoenician, Rossi is offering a full-service business that includes scouting, developing and producing talent for film and TV. He recently held specialized workshops to give area children a feel for the Hollywood audition process. Kids participated in photo shoots with Los Angeles photographer Robert “Kaz” Kazandjian capturing their images and A-list celebrity stylist Wesley O’Neil assisting the youths. Participants received commercial and theatrical headshots for their portfolios. Acting coaches from Los Angeles’ Shari Shaw Studios and scene specialist Melissa Blanchard offered scene study evaluations. The top ten children were called back and offered representation for national TV and film management by RTM.

Rossi opened RTM in Los Angeles previously and his clients have been booked on ABC’s “American Housewife,” the Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie” and the Netflix series “Tales of the City,” as well as CBS’ “2 Broke Girls,” HBO’s “High Maintenance” and many other TV shows and films, including “La La Land” and “Daddy’s Home.”
