    [Agency] Pure Talent (Morgan Knox)

    Hello all!

    Was wondering if anyone knew anything about Morgan Knox from Pure Talent. I haven't been able to find anything about him online apart from a bare linked profile. He had a posting on the www.nmfilm.com website awhile back and he is looking to represent screenwriters. He's located in Santa Fe, NM. I'm thinking about submitting work to him, but wanted to find out if it was safe to do so.

    Thanks

    Apart from a few online listings, there's almost nothing to be found about Morgan Knox or his agency. This is never a good sign: a successful agent/agency should be more researchable.

    Found this LinkedIn profile for Mr. Knox. His agency has only been around for 3 months, and apparently he worked in the hospitality industry prior to opening it. That's not really the kind of professional background you want to see in an agent.

    With that background he'll probably treat you to a nice lunch, though. Even if he doesn't manage to sell your book.

    Thanks, Victoria. That was some sound advice. I'll probably hold off submitting anything until he further establishes himself.

    I found this...Not sure if it's the same person, but if it is it could explain how he gained contacts.

    Working as a production associate on a low-budget TV docudrama is unlikely to result in many useful contacts within the film production world.
