We’re proud to announce the launch of our new Artist-in-Residence program in association with ADC Young Guns 12!
With the goal of advancing the careers of emerging talent, up to five YG 12 winners will be invited to be on a special roster at Levine/Leavitt called Artists-In-Residence. The agents here at Levine/Leavitt, along with an advisory board consisting of top creative industry professionals, will work closely with this group to guide them and help take their careers to the next level. We are longtime fans of the great talent that has emerged from the Young Guns competition, L/L artists Alex Trochut and Sean Freeman are both former recipients of the prestigious award. The winners of the Artist-In-Residence award will be announced at the YG12 Awards Ceremony + Exhibition Party in October.
The advisory board includes:
Menno Kluin, Chair of Young Guns 12 and Executive Creative Director of Deutsch Inc.
Rob Baird, Chief Creative Officer of Preacher
Dave Bett, Design Director at Columbia Records/Sony Music
Cliff Lewis, Executive Producer at Droga5
Danny Clinch, Photographer and Filmmaker
Jeff Levine and Liz Leavitt, Co-Founders of Levine/Leavitt
Sarah Maltais, Senior Agent at Levine/Leavitt
“There are so many awards shows and awards in a year. Some have lost their appeal and impact. Winning an award is one thing, but being able to then accelerate your career with representation by a prestigious talent agency is beyond valuable.”
-Chair of Young Guns 12 and Executive Creative Director of Deutsch Inc., Menno Kluin
“This is a very exciting time for the incoming class of Young Guns. Representation by Levine/Leavitt, a top tier firm, will be life changing for these talented young creatives”
-ADC Director of Education, Brendan Watson
“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to contribute something meaningful to the careers of young talent. It’s great to win an award and recognition, especially as a Young Gun. But what one does with the award and talent is what makes all the difference. Our goal is to help make that difference for our Artist-In-Residence roster of Young Guns. ”
-Levine/Leavitt co-founder Jeff Levine
