Carlson International was established in 1962. when noted musical arranger, producer
and publisher Fred Barovick (credits include recordings by
Nat King Cole and Elvis Presley) established Carlson International as a talent
management adjunct operating
from his Brill Building (1619 Broadway) New York office.
He placed the management and A&R auspice
in the hands of Louis Ferriol, who had been a freelance producer
and independent talent agent.
By 1967, Ferriol expanded Carlson International as
full service talent management/direction, moving to offices in The Fisk Building,
(250 West 57th St.),
catch-phrased "talent row" because most firms in the
complex then were talent agents, model agents, personal managers
or casting directors.
Expanding, Carlson International (carlsoninternational.com)
entered into motion picture, television and video production,
producing twelve full length theatrical features,
national cable programming, commercials, infomercials,
and industrials with in-house crew, mobile van,
and editing/post production facility.
As the cyberworld burgeoned, Carlson International launched
Xoteria.TV xoteria.com) ~ internet television and
multimedia which enhanced Carlson International's
talent management/direction services to encompass in-house
web server and website facility to provide our represented
actor/model clients with professional websites at no charge.
