I have been working in the entertainment industry for a while and have accomplished some great things, some through my agencies and many on my own and still do...
However, after meeting with Normita, I have been able to add more to my resume and for the past seven months; have been working full-time in television as a stunt girl and lead stand-in. I can also say that I truly appreciate the honesty and kindness I received from Normita and Icon Studios Dallas.
If you have ever worked in this business, you may have run into the opposite of that, so it is very refreshing to find that there actually are good people out there. For anyone who is trying to make the entertainment world part of their own, whether established or not, Icon Studios Dallas is a great place to connect. Thank you Normita & Icon Studios Dallas, I appreciate all your hard work!
I review entertainment contracts as an attorney for individual artists, producers, distributors and others in the business week in and week out. I've never seen a better agreement for both beginning performers and local artists than what Normita offers through Icon Studios Dallas. She pours her heart and soul -- and the constant flow of opportunity through her local industry contacts -- into helping people achieve their dreams. She has built the “community based” model that is catching on throughout the world for artistic development, whether musical, dance or acting, that is displacing glitz with commitment and a supportive circle of friends. She arranges top-notch NY / LA level training at a fraction of what you would pay for others in this area. All of this goes to her dream of building a community of mutually supportive creative people who in turn build up the Dallas film and entertainment industry and who are trained, confident and capable of moving on to New York, LA, and the world. I trust Icon with my kids' talent -- and I've even joined myself!
Entertainment Attorney and Icon Studios Dallas Actor
Prior to Icon Studios Dallas I have had very little experience or training in acting or modeling. I have been with Icon for over two weeks now. I have shot one attorney commercial with speaking lines, worked on NBC's “Chase” as both a cowboy and a "stand-in" actor, and auditioned and landed a national Gatorade commercial. I have been very impressed with Icon’s staff. They are great people and work hard for you. I received a call the other day after 4 a.m. It was the Director asking if I could be an extra on Chase later that day. She had not slept yet. That is how hard working they are. I am not just a talent of Icon, I am more than that. I am part of the family. That is what you are signing up for. You are not just signing up to be one of their members; you are signing up to be part of the family. If you are willing to represent yourself and Icon in an honorable way and are willing to work hard, then I can guarantee that Icon will be a great place for you. They are a great company be a part of. If you are given the privilege to becoming a member with Icon Studios Dallas, then I would highly recommend you doing so. Their acting on-camera and martial arts training classes are also phenomenal! I hope that I get the privilege to meet you one day if you become a member with Icon Studios Dallas. Welcome to the family!
When I started working with Icon Studios Dallas, I was fresh off a negitive agent relationship experience and was having a difficult time personally and professionally. I toyed with the idea of throwing in the towel and leaving the business altogether. One evening I called Normita up and we had a long phone conversation. During that conversation she was kind, honest and reassuring. She made no promises, but she gave great advise and encouragement. I appreciated the time she took with me and will always be grateful for her kindness.
Since becoming a memeber of Icon Studios Dallas, I have gained some great business knowledge from the classes and workshops, that has proven useful in my career. I have been much more satisfied with my auditon skills and I fell much more successful. In only a few months I have booked the principal role in two commericals, a stage play and worked on several other projects as well.
My confidence as an actress has blossomed and I am getting calls from Casting Director's, Director's and Producer's to work on their projects now! I am even seeking out projects on my own! I think Normita is a God send and I highly recommend the services of Icon Studios Dallas.
Dear Dallas Professional Acting Community,
I am new to this area and heard about ICON STUDIOS DALLAS from a dear friend, Kim. I met with the gracious staff and instantly new this was the home every actor working in this area needs. Before I even became a member with them they had already cast me as an extra on CHASE...this within the first few days of meeting them...I have now been privileged to be offered a recurring role on LONESTAR with John Voight and all this within the first two weeks of signing. Let me say...as a professional working actor in TV/FILM/VIDEO and Web, I have worked both nationally and internationally, I have never met a staff so dedicated to professionalism in my entire career as this exceptional group. If you are looking for a home, where heart, soul and artistry are first, guidance and direction second, and lastly a place to grow as this area of Dallas blossoms into a boom town of new show - this is the place. Take advantage of this group...I promise you...you will not find better hands.
Peace, Kenn W.
Thank you guys for everything! The very day I signed with Icon I got booked on Chase and Lone Star! Not just walking by the camera ether, I got to speak on TV and a lot of face time (Chase episode 8) lol. I am a beginning actor and this was a great start for me. I constantly get emails now for other projects, industry info. and casting calls happening all over Dallas. I had no idea that it would happen this fast. You guys are truly incredible! These guys work relentlessly to find their artists opportunities.
Not only do they plug you in and help promote you to find work but The staff also provides photography, acting workshops, firearms training, voice lessons, modeling coaching, martial arts and stunt training as well. It's ridiculously awesome!!!
If you are or want to be a working actor, model, performing artist, or just learn about the business in Dallas/Fort Worth area then you have found THE place to call home.
Once again thank you guys so much!
I wanted to say thank you for all you have done for Bianca And Chester. It was such a thrill for me to see Bianca on TV last week on Chase. You are truly a godsend to many people that you have helped and cared for.
You are the heart and soul of the company and I believe in you. Why do you think I promote Icon Studios everywhere I go? You are elite at what you do and I admire you for your passion. You have battled and overcome more than anyone I know, which is why I look up to you and consider you a mentor to me. If it weren't your belief in me, none of this would have ever been possible. You've made my dreams come true, and inspire me to create even bigger dreams with the courage go after them. Thank you again for all that you have done for me and all your support you have given to me. You are my angel, I will always be truely grateful to you and for changing my life for better. Also, I am honored to be part of your team.
Thank you to the Director for booking me on the show of NBC's Chase today. I can honestly say that I had the best time today on set than any other one. Getting to know the crew and cast in such a way as not presented to me before, was not only the thrill of my life, but such a great learning experience as well. I appreciate the hard work your doing and the respect you've earned in the industry. It is through you I was able to get on set and live the dream.
Thank you again,
I wanted to send a quick thank you for all of the long hours and hard work that you and the staff of Icon Studios put in. I would not be able to shine without the fuel that you provide me with. Thank you!
To the Director and staff at Icon Studios Dallas:
Just wanted to say thank you again to the staff at Icon and the production co. for yesterday's law firm commercial. I truly appreciate it. Thank you so much for all your hard work!! If I could give you a gift card for sleep, I would!
I find myself to be so thankful everyday for coming across IconStudiosDallas.com. I find that the staff are a few of the most helpful and considerate people. Never before did I ever think I could work on TV. Thanks to Icon I have been on Chase, LoneStar, and The Good Guys. I have even done a commercial on TV! They are very understanding and inspirational. I remember my first time working and I was so excited. They helped me take it all in stride and jump right in. Icon even made sure I had some photos to use for a portfolio. They are even helping me build a polished resumé. My only regret is that I did not find them sooner! I want to say I hope that their dreams, ambitions, and hopes come true. God bless them. Thank you Icon.
Hey thank you so much! I just want you to know that I am eternally grateful for everything you guys are doing for me! I am honored and happy to be a part of the Icon family, and I am very thankful to you guys for believing in me, signing me, and just welcoming me into your lives and your home! For all you guys have done for me, I will forever be loyal to Icon, with or without an agent, and I hope we can accomplish many more amazing things together for years to come! Thank you very, VERY much! Froggy loves you!!! =D
... And this is why I honor Icon studio. Ms. Normita is a great leader with her heart in the right place. Much love to all Icon studio family!
