Spotlight events – an invitation to D&D members

Spotlight events – an invitation to D&D members

The invitation below is from Spotlight. You are probably aware of their annual industry forum, they want to extend the reach of their events to D&D agents.

From David Flynn, Spotlight
Dear PMA Members,
The below information is best suited to artists agents, but please note that all of Spotlight & Tagmin’s events for PMA members are open to creative and literary agents too, and we particularly welcome your attendance and input into our Industry Forum should you find any of the sessions relevant.

Spotlight & Tagmin’s Industry Forum 2024

This year’s Industry Forum will be held in October and we want to make it the most productive and targeted event yet. As agents, you are fighting multiple battle fronts right now, so we are taking this opportunity to survey the PMA to ask for their valued input into the session content and format of the event. We’d also like to hear from you about who you’d like to hear speak. Please could you take a few minutes to share your thoughts with us in this survey: https://forms.gle/nuhvdxcH3ycUTsuN6

Agents Who Rep Casting Directors
We’re facilitating an online marketplace in mid-June for the International Casting Directors Association (ICDA) who would like to meet PMA agents who rep, or who are interested in repping casting directors. CDs in Europe and beyond are looking with interest at the UK model of representation for casting directors as they see a growing need for their interests to be protected. To register your interest in this event, please go to:

Disability Inclusion Training

We’d like to invite PMA members to join a closed session for agents and casting directors with the BAFTA winning advocacy group Triple C, taking place on Wednesday 22nd May at 4pm. The session provides insight for agents who rep or would like to rep disabled, deaf and/or neurodivergent actors and will explore access, terminology and implementation. They suggest ‘camera’s on’ for this one if you can. This session has been opened to the ICDA and CSA too, so you may recognise a few casting directors there too.
