SO much better than the WME2 logo clusterfuck.
i wish these guys good luck
why are thees bums getting publicity….they worked at a big agency for 10 years and have a crappy client list…There big problem is how to pay the overhead…forget profits…Being a motion picture lit agent is the Worst job in the Agency business..NO upside
Well it’s certainly a hell of a lot better than WmE2. There’s an agency in the uk called Troika that did a similair thing to these guys. Within a few months they were an agency every actor wanted to be with.
Certainly in the uk it is more desirable to be at a smaller boutique agency. I recognise that large and small have their benefits but I wish these guys well.
Any more specific information about where they’re going to be located? Address. Phone number. Etc.
The contact info floated around yesterday. I posted it here:
A “talent” agency? Does that mean more agents or mergers to come with Verve?
Adding the word “talent” is an industry loophole. It means they don’t have to read anymore.
And The Newest Agency Logo Is… UGLY.
Looks like the name of a magazine from the late 1990s.
Of course, if they choose to represent me, I’ll gladly tattoo that thing on my neck.
Great logo… If they only had the agenting skills to match. Those three accomplished nothing on their own at Endeavor. They were mere pets to some of the well-placed agents above them.
So why did Michael Arndt thank Bill Weinstein in his Oscar speech?
You think that makes someone a successful, money-making, signer of an agent?
cool. i like it.
the logo is baller.
I’d have gone for a red background, but I like the color red, and I’m not a graphic arts professional with a background in color theory.
It’s much better than WME2’s logo, which makes me think it’s the label for a new brand of bottled water. But then again, who am I to judge?
Oh, that’s right, I’m a know it all internet commenter, I judge things all the time!
Red makes more sense, as verve denotes energy and enthusiasm, versus a puke green that made me read “nerve” instead of “verve,” as in so nervous i’m gonna throw up… apologies to the designer.
Of course, if you go to Verve Communications, they use the same green, so maybe it’s something Ververs do…
The nineties called, they want their logo back.
Nice logo. A lot better than the one of their previous employers.
Does have a bit of a new energy drink vibe to it, though.
VERVE: WE POWER YOU UP!
(great taste, less filling, no wait, that was something else)
It’s a better name than “Endeavor,” which always struck me as just saying they’ll “try” to get you work. That said, if anybody names an agency “Chutzpah,” I’m switching to them!
Reminds me of the British band Verve…
How do I submit my spec feature to them?
You dress up like a clown and dance in front of their offices. When security is dragging you away, throw the spec in the front door.
If this were red, does anyone else think it would look uncannily like CAA’s logo?
They should have gone with the name Howard Fine & Howard
The font is a little too Robocop for my taste.
Wow, another first for the tenpercenters. I wonder how much money they blew away coming up with this crap. Really? Is this the best they could do?
See, I was wondering where the rest of the vertical stroke on the R went until, OH! There you are, lying on the ground between the R and V. See, this company is about “connections,” see? and all the letters are connected, see? And…oh, forget it.
This logo will look great on spec script rejection letters.
A great name… for a vibrator.
I seriously hope their new business takes off because competition between agents is a good thing for talent and scribes.
Isn’t there already a management company in culver called Verve entertainment?
not any more!
