Laramina Barnes-Lara - President/Agent
Please, call me Mina. I’m a California native from Long Beach, California. I started my career in the film industry as an actress in 2000 and have worked with several well-known agencies such as Sandi Alessi Casting, Central Casting and the Robb Agency in Los Angeles, CA. During my career, I worked as an agent’s assistant which immensely honed my knowledge and network base. Although my journey into film began when I was scouted while singing in a club on Sunset Blvd, my first film was the Gristle (2000), followed by Jurassic Park 3 (2001) and then Artificial Intelligence (2001). Additionally, I have worked with some television shows such as sci-fi Firefly (2001) and Providence (2001-2002) as well as a few commercials.
I enjoy all genres of film but suspense and thrillers tickle my fancy the most. The same enjoyment is applied to music but alternative rock and R&B is my joy.
I am so elated about this new journey in my life to fulfill my lifelong dream to have our own agency.My career has also graced me with producing several independent films, providing craft services, script supervising and location management.Now I call Tucson home and travel to see family in California. I love the Tucson community and am excited showcase our local talent.
