Mr. Dutton’s experience in the industry came with APS Studios. Mr Dutton was licensed with The Ministry of College and Education being a necessary requirement while working with Eleanor Fulcher. During that time he developed a keen eye for talent. While working as a talent agent, he has sent models abroad to France, Milan, Japan and The United States. In live theatre, Steve has placed talent in The Lion King, in Toronto and England. Main roles included, Sarabi, Mufasa and Young Simba. Credits that he has casted include:
Breakout & Red Blooded American Woman II
(filmed in Canada,
Joe’s Wedding, No Exit, Electra, The Donor, When Bullet Hits The Bone, Jungle Law, Killing Machine, Terminal Rush, Specimen & Virus
Sadness of Sex
Hostile Intent, Deadly Current & Lethal Tender
Romantic Notions & Return of Yeti (Visual Productions)
After owning a successful agency in Toronto for 25 years, Steve turned his focus to working as a talent scout, supplying talent agencies with fresh talent of all ages. Steve has been scouting for agencies since 2011. Those agencies have included; Kristen Associates, Celebrity Talent, Caroline’s Modelling and Talent, Profile, Markham Models Agency, Kontact and Karisma. Steve Dutton did not and does not own these agencies; he simply supplied talent to them. He hopes that all of these people have had great opportunities with these agencies!
He is no longer doing business with the agencies above because he realized that he wanted to give fresh talent an inexpensive way to get into this industry. The agencies that he does business with now, give people the choice of using his photgraphy which is included in the $20.00 screen testing fee. New clients also have the choice of using their own photographers. In the past few years, the agencies using this system, are booking a lot more people for auditions and jobs, strictly from their photos.
If you are interested in getting started in this business, please contact Steve for more details regarding screen testing opportunities.
