Bop Actors, the only talent agency in Bay of Plenty that represents creative talent throughout all of NZ, is changing its name. This change will better reflect the philosophy, reach and representation provided by the agency and its director, Tanya Horo. With its base in Tauranga, Bop Actors has been focusing on promoting and showcasing opportunities for talent in the Bay of Plenty, but with growth in the region, the agency’s reach is extending further.
“There is so much amazing talent in the Bay of Plenty, and I am very much committed to continuing to represent people in this area. However my client base has extended to include actors and creatives from all over New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and the United States, and the name, Bop Actors, no longer accurately reflects who we are,” says Tanya Horo.
The agency will be registered as T.M.Horo Management from the 8th of May, known as TMH Management.
Incorporated in the new logo is a White Feather, representative of Tanya’s iwi connections, Taranaki Iwi and Ngāti Haupoto.
“The strength, softness and mana of the feather reflects my own personal philosophy that I bring to my business,” says Tanya, “namely: support, communication and team-work; working together like a family. This is how I approach my business, I work with my clients to help them achieve their dreams. I help them through developing and sharing skills, by providing on-going training, workshops, and by being involved in their journey.”
Tanya understands both sides of the industry from over 15 years experience as an actor and performer – she is best known in NZ as the face of House of Travel for eight years as “Miss Lucy”. Tanya worked for a number of years in New York in the music and film industry and brings fresh and progressive perspectives gained from this time to her business.
TMH Management will continue to represent actors and other creative talent, with a focus on work opportunities within New Zealand, but also International work. Some of her most recent clients include celebrity chefs, film directors, writers and production designers. She represents a number of talented young people including an 8 year old up-coming surfing champion and the talented award winning actress Vanessa Rare. She sees opportunities increasing in New Zealand and in the Bay of Plenty, with the newly created Bay of Plenty
Regional Film Office, managed by director Anton Steel.
TMH Management works closely with Anton Steel in growing the film industry in the Bay of Plenty and NZ. Bop Actors’ online presence will shift to its new identity next week at the url http://www.tmh.management
