A talent preparation agency with nearly 30 years of experience, Actors, Models and Talent for Christ (AMTC) is devoted to preparing students for the entertainment industry and providing tomorrow's youth with positive role models. Actors, Models and Talent for Christ is a three-generation, family owned business. Founded by former model Millie Lewis and her daughter Carey, the company began as a talent exhibition and eventually grew into the national business it is today.
Actors, Models and Talent for Christ has had a great deal of success when it comes to getting talent in front of the right people. Several AMTC alumni have made their mark on the entertainment world, such as Aaron Conley, who performed in the Broadway production of The Lion King; and Tim Urban, who performed on American Idol. In addition to achieving success placing talent in leading magazines, movies, and other media, Actors, Models and Talent for Christ also maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Once an Actors, Models and Talent for Christ agent qualifies an applicant, that individual can begin the first program, called The Bridge. This includes 50 hours of instruction in industry skills, styling, and a professional photo shoot. After completing The Bridge, students may then participate in SHINE, AMTC's biannual talent showcase. SHINE takes place in Orlando, Florida, and draws anywhere from 50 to 100 casting directors, talent scouts, and music industry professionals. The event culminates with selected Actors, Models and Talent for Christ performers sitting down with the attending talent scouts and casting directors for interviews.
