Modeling agency Gilla Roos closed its doors last Friday claiming bankruptcy. Funny, they just hired someone a few weeks ago - didn't they see this coming? Too bad for the models. Because the industry standard is about net 90 days for payment anyone who worked for this agency since last November probably won't get paid. Gilla Roos represented real people who took time off from lunch to go to castings, who sacrificed lots of time and Metrocard swipes to show up at castings. Sad to see these hard-working folks get screwed.
R&G Models also folded last week and agencies Innovative and CED are rumored to have cut back on their staff.
