While Lebanon has its own thriving film and television industry, for those hoping to make the jump to a Western audience, there was very little help available in the form of training and management until the country's first international talent agency opened up its doors in 2013 .The conference was held at JRP's office in Adma where the walls are lined with images of the agency's success stories – from Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly to Josh Duhmal and Katie Holmes – and gave the young stars-in-training a chance to talk about their experience representing Lebanon at the talent contest.Fairly common in places like the United States and Europe, agencies such as JRP specialize in scouting local talent and offering them classes on things such as social etiquette, image development, entertainment business basics and modeling and posing for the camera, as well as providing them with industry contacts and connections to scouts.
