Belinda Holbrook is a top notch agent. She is consistently looking out for her talent. I have been with Maja for years, and since she has taken over and she has turned it into the #1 agency around. She has cleaned it up, gotten rid of all the questionables and has nothing but the best on her team now. Belinda is a hard working woman who knows how to get the best for her actors and models. Period.

I have no idea what this eveningstar person is talking about. Clearly this person in not a professional and has no understanding of how a registered SAG agent works. There is no truth in anything this person said. I have had more chances to read for parts, with Maja, then I have ever had with other local agents and I have yet to pay a cent except for standard SAG fees .There is no truth in these comments. Acting classes are advertised as they may be of use to many people starting in the trade and sometimes they can be useful but these are in no way required by the agent. It's clear to me that eveningstar is very green to the Industry and unhappy that she's not living in Hollywood yet.

I have been in Maja for three years now and everyone that has left a comment I sympathize with. So to state as of October 2008: The photographer that was pressuring talent to do nude photos is gone. Yes he also ripped me off on head shots, but I assisted in his removal as he was a scum bag. Second, yes they take 10% for acting jobs and 20% for promotional and print. But that is pretty standard. We all did it and its a bit of a necessity simply to keep things running. Third, yes Miss Holbrook's dealings with actors is sometimes difficult, but all you need to do is demand things and she will show. You simply just need to be patient and trust her. Oh and about contracts, she generally only signs you to a contract if you are SAG or you have some work under your belt, otherwise it is not necessary and better for you anyway cause you can come and go as you will. The reason for this is because there is a lot of turnover in this industry. "Actors" come, try their luck, and then give up, so ultimately they're saving paper work.
Agencies in New Mexico are still figuring things out, and yes they are no where near perfect. But you have to be patient when dealing with agents, and I believe Maja has become much better during my three years in this agency.
P.S. no fees to sign up. Just a simple interview and you are asked to get your own head shots. Oh and they also stray away from jobs that demand nudity. Guaranteed.

Hope this helps

My girlfriend used to strip on camera for the photographers. She also was coerced into paying too much for a MANDATORY website.
They just kept charging her account for Hosting Fees and Web Maintence Fees--and our sites were all Macintosh Web Builder sites!

SCUM BAG ALERT. STAY AWAY!

The yearly (coaching) fee is 1,200 dollars. Also they cut out 45% and not 10-20%. Some of Holbrooks relationships, with talent has been rather questionable too. That is all I will say, here.

**In a few other sites, they have said that they don't take but a little out, when someone is SAG. My friends were non-union and they always had money taken out. They showed me their paystubs. They also said that Maja didn't want to show them their contracts.

The information about this agency that was given by evening star is 100% inaccurate. This agency is a Screen Actors Guild Agency. There is absolutely no fee to be represented by this agency. The Agent only gets paid when the SAG Actor gets work and the Agent is only allowed to take 10% when the actor belongs to SAG. Photos are taken by the photographer that the SAG Actor chooses.
