Shelly Shares Her Amazing Runway Experience


“Good afternoon Victoria! Thank you! I had a blast. I believe this show went a lot smoother than the last one. SisSTARloop was in charge of the show. I walked for Lana designer of C’est Ca New York (tulle skirts), Cecilia Ekici (black dress), and Jolie&Jade (jean jacket), and jewelry by pieces NY. I had a blast I had an audition. Got chosen, went back into the sister for a meet and greet with the other models and a few days after had rehearsal with everyone. I attended the Saturday and Sunday shows. It was a lot of fun and I felt way more confident in this show than the last. I was just contacted for another show I will be going to auditions next Friday night. ☺️ ”

An Amazing Story From an Amazing Lady

“I am awesomely surprised and impressed! I signed up with NINE9 less than 3 weeks ago and today I received my first booking for a scene on a major Netflix series!! The D.C. office has an amazing staff – Jennifer Chavez reassured me that there IS a place for “older talent” who are committed to making their dreams become a reality. She and Michael Zakar have provided the personal attention to get my career off the ground. NINE9 as an “un-agency” offers services, educational tools & workshops and the personal touch not provided by other on-line talent websites (I belong to one of these and they had the same casting listing (HOC) but no word from them about pushing me through to get the part). You have real people you can meet with, learn from and improve your skills. I just attended a workshop on Auditioning Techniques for Film & TV by Mark McKinnon who was a wealth of information on what the casting directors are looking for – such critically helpful advice!

“Once again, THANK YOU for taking an interest in me – I intend to be one of your best success stories!”

“I can’t thank Nine9 enough. I have walked the red carpet, gotten in tons of feature films, TV shows, fashion shows, modeling gigs, etc. After all the connections I’ve made from this website I am now one of the main characters on a TV series filming 2017. I am so excited and I will actually be able to watch myself on television for the next 4 years. Not only that, but I am now an actress with a director background. Life is great.”

“I became a member of Nine9 and got booked as an audience member and extra the very next day! On Monday I was in the audience for the upcoming show Daytime Divas. I was asked to come back Wednesday and Friday as a crew member. I had a blast! Everyone was so nice and friendly and everyone made the set so much fun. It was so cool to be behind the scenes and see how much is actually put into TV shows. They also asked for me to come back so I will be back as a crew member on Monday the 26th and Tuesday the 27th. It was an amazing experience and I’m very glad this is the path I’ve chosen to go!”

“I’ve experienced a positive atmosphere of people who genuinely care for the betterment of their clients. On a scale of one to five they are the latter. They provide their knowledge in the industry as well as maintain a foothold in becoming the ‘go between’ for others who otherwise go unnoticed. I am proud to say that I am now a part of this organization. I am humbled by being accepted! It’s all what YOU make of it. Thank you to the directors and staff and those who showed tender care in the whole process of accepting me as your new talent! I look forward to a future of success and profitability with Nine9!

“Thank you again.”

“The best day of my life. Oh boy, the energy of 900 Background in one area was so amazing. I enjoyed it to the fullest. I wouldn’t have traded my day yesterday not even for a principle role. The lead actors were so dedicated to giving us their all I just wanted to reciprocate. I got to see so many of my friends since it was such a huge call. So it just felt like a day of fun and leisure.. the best set I have been on thus far. Adam Sandler, Terry Crews and Rahkishi were the most humble actors and directors I have ever encountered thus far on set, they made us all feel very happy to be there and I appreciated with a passion hearing Adam Sandler tell us he couldn’t do this without Background. How nice and he blew a kiss at us, I grabbed it right or of the air and saved it as an encouragement to give my all and do my best so this movie can be a hit just for that primary reason alone!

P.S. I still have the kiss in my pocket tee-hee. Thank you for asking. Have a wonderful day. Off to set today for Grey’s Anatomy.”
