Martin Weiss initially established himself as a successful talent manager in the mid 1990s. His clients have booked feature films, pilots, series/episodics, commercials, stage and print shoots.
Upon graduating Arizona State University with a B.A. in English in 1987, Weiss founded a publicity firm representing actors, writers and directors and assisting unit publicists. For three years, he combined writing and entertainment experience to create a majority of Carolco Pictures' feature film pitches (including Arnold Schwarzenegger's TOTAL RECALL) for the 1988 American Film Market and compose production notes/biographies for numerous feature film presskits including RAMBO III and DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS. A personal triumph in October 1989, Weiss assisted coordinating publicity for the 44-Year Reunion of the FIRST MOTION PICTURE UNIT OF THE ARMY/AIR FORCE; attendees included President Ronald Reagan with wife Nancy, Hal Roach Sr. and, entertaining the troops as he had for so many years, the late, great Bob Hope!!!
Looking to expand his horizons, he landed an option on one screenplay, assisted casting and acted in motion pictures, television programs and commercials. In the mid 1990s, Weiss became a full-time manager cultivating relationships with top children's agencies, producers, directors, casting directors and other industry professionals. A second division of MWM assists cult film stars including Gunnar Hansen (the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre") and Judy O'Dea (Barbara from the original "Night of the Living Dead").
Weiss prides himself on his abilities to communicate with his young clients and maintain a get-up-and-go-for-it attitude. He works only with serious, dedicated youth who not only pursue their craft with vigor, they enjoy doing so... and he enjoys working with them.
