Kirk Talent Agency is one of Canada's most sought-after talent agencies, representing many of the country's top award winning and nominated actors regularly seen in Canadian, U.S. and International film and television productions.
In 2008, Kirk Talent expanded its operations to Los Angeles with the incorporation of Open Entertainment, a talent and literary management company created to maximize client’s exposure in the U.S and foreign market place.
Founded in 1989 and based in Vancouver the principals of the company have over 25 years of combined experience in talent management. Kirk Talent and subsidiary Los Angeles-based Open Entertainment Management successfully covers projects worldwide maximizing opportunities for their clients.
Kirk Talent is a member of TAMAC and Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television and has produced feature films and theatre productions.
Kirk Talent Agencies and Integral Artists have announced a merging of the two companies as of May 1st, 2016.
Ben C. Silverman, founder of Integral Artists will act as the managing director while Kirk Talent founder, Lesa Kirk, will remain active as both an agent and advisor.
The move solidifies the company as one of Canada’s largest multi faceted agencies, representing Canada's top talent in film/television, production, commercial, voice and literary.
The company will continue to maintain operations under both brands at its newly renovated facility on West 3rd Avenue in Vancouver.
The on-camera and voice divisions will continue to operate under Lesa Kirk with agents Candace Fulton, Lyla Rock, and Jen Ainley, while the literary and production divisions will be handled by Ben C. Silverman, Dani Elias, Doreen Holmes and Jordan Drage.
When discussing why this merger will be beneficial to both current and future clients, Mr. Silverman said, “the synergy between our behind-camera and on-camera departments will make it so we can be most effective in the marketplace for both our clients and producers.”
After close to 30 years helming one of Vancouver’s top talent agencies, Ms. Kirk is “excited to be working together with the Integral team on this next chapter toward our continued growth.” In addition to her work with Integral, Lesa Kirk will continue to develop and produce her own slate of projects for film & television.
The agents at Kirk Talent take a collaborative management-orientated approach with their clients focusing on career development and longevity, with a roster of talent that spans across North America, Europe, Scandinavia and Australia. Over the years Kirk Talent has built solid working relationships with studios, networks, producers, directors and casting directors nationwide.
