What is Substance Artist Representation?
Our artist representation is a continuously developing system that is designed to cater to the needs of professional creative freelancers. We work with a custom arrangement of Co-management & Management with our artists. Our unique system allows us to cater to different types of work styles for varying types of creatives.
Why Sign with Substance?
WE DEAL WITH PAPERWORK
We deal with the necessary processing for projects: contracts, cost estimates, invoices, vendor accreditation, & receipts. This helps our artists focus more on the creative and production side of projects.
WE THINK LONG TERM
We track and share with our artists cross-project data to better understand their projects. We also have and develop optional benefits systems that make it easier for our artists to process them (e.g. SSS, PhilHealth, etc.)
WE'RE A COMMUNITY
We organise and get involved in events relating to the specific industries of our artists. Freelancing can get lonely, odd hours can drive a creative nutty. We curb this by being involved and encouraging our artists to do the same.
WE MARKET YOU
While we don’t guarantee projects, we use various digital & non-traditional marketing practices to better connect our artists to clients in industries that we feel match their career path as creatives.
YOU CAN CHOOSE
While we always give our two-cents, our artists have the choice whether to take a project or not, as well as decide their rates. (We also believe in yearly sabbaticals to recharge some of that creativity).
NO SIGNING FEE
We don’t have any hidden surprise payments, we get a fixed percent of the total project fee. That’s it.
