"I have to say that I’m very impressed with the caliber of talent you represent (and I’m only focusing on your actors who are looking for agents so I can only imagine how good the others are).

Richard Chiu, actor
Oliver Carnay is one of the best managers I've ever had. He is professional, cares about his clients as well as understands the business of managing actors. He is truly supportive of what his clients want, tries to guide them the best he can, while listening to what they really want. He handles all business aspects for the actors while we focus on the art.
In my experience as a client of Oliver, he has always been supportive and always on top of his game in this business of entertainment. He really cares about the careers of his clients. I also consider him an amazing friend which helps a lot as an actor. You always need someone you can talk to that isn't your immediate family member or spouse, someone that understands what an actor has to go through. Oliver is an amazing manager and friend!
from Alvaro Orlando - actor
Oliver is my manager and also a friend. He is a very caring and loyal human being. He is extremely professional and a very trustworthy person. I have been doing very good with him on my side and I really trust him. He is very proactive and is passionate about my career, which makes me even be more motivated in my career... He honestly understands the business and knows how to pitch his clients. I look forward to keep working with Oliver -- sky is the limit, and I see that the future looks very bright!
from Barnaby Barrilla - actor
"Oliver is a very creative and a professional manager. He is always looking for new ways to push your career to the next level. What I love about him the most, is that he does everything to put you out there for the biggest roles and guides you as much as he can. He is always active in the entertainment industry and always find ways how I can promote myself --- including attending film festivals, special screenings and other industry gatherings. He is truly an amazing manager and I am glad that I can call him a friend as well. Oliver has helped me so much in my career. I wouldn't be where I am today without him."

My dear Oliver,
Today I was reflecting, as many do, upon all the blessings in my life. Next to my relationships with the Great One and my family, the thing that inspires the most gratitude is the fact that a young kid from Iowa is now a working feature film composer, with several more lined up after that.
Oliver, I don't know how to thank you. You believed in me, said my name to the right person at the right time, and now the phrase "knock and the door will be opened to you" is taking on a whole new meaning from the way that things are unfolding for me, especially these past few months... For hooking me up with Dave and 'Broken Dreams,' for everything else, and for things I probably don't even know about yet, I thank you from the bottom of my big 6'6 heart.
And what is even more significant than any of these material projects and successes---is the change in mindset that has occurred. It was so subtle that I didn't even notice it at first, but upon reflection it is staggering how differently I approach life nowadays. This project has created a sense of abundance in my life that has become my reality...and as you know, if a person vibrates, projects, oozes abundance, that's exactly what will be returned to them.
My life feels like a snowball rolling down a steep hill; in the last 2 or 3 months I have met more people, landed more gigs, and made more new friends than (it feels like) the past several years put together.
Literally a day after I met Dave for the first time, I was approached out of the blue by two of my older friends to be involved a musical charity project that could literally explode with publicity---this is turning out to be possibly the highest profile thing I've done yet. And yes, I want you to be a part of it. Things are still finishing up, so when the time is right I'd love to have a long chat about it. A hint: it involves a 17 year old kid in jail, an amazing Filipino family and a nonprofit they run, a camera crew from MTV's 'True Life,' dozens of Southern California's finest recording artists, and one very special song...
Many, many amazing things this year, and and I feel it's going to pale in comparison to 2010...for me, you, and everyone we know. I conclude by saying, once again, THANK YOU for being a blindingly bright piece of evidence that someone is watching out for us. I wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings, and look forward to talking soon.
To the Great One!

Expo in Pomona. His dedication and commitment to his work and to his
clients is something to be admired and replicated by all. His many
years of experience working in the industry, especially his excellent
relationship with the media, is clearly evident in his work and more
importantly in his character." - Christina Canseco/Bryan Chan
Boyet Silverio, VIP Dancer
My former manager, Oliver Carnay, has played a very important role in my career and has been so instrumental in changing my status here in the US. I was able to pass the American Guild of Variety Artists [AGVA] as an outstanding performer. It paved way to getting my permanent residency as an exceptionl artist in June of 1995. I am truly indebted to him for life. I'm here for you "Inay." Malapit na birthday mo!

"Oliver has an enthusiasm for his work that most of the Hollywood elite are lacking!"
NELSON MELEGRITO, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, DIVA
"In an industry where first impression counts, Oliver's dedication and passion is quite simply, an artist dream come true. The success of our Dreamgirls DVD party is owed to his masterful execution of the invited talents and his excellent media relationship. International Artists PR truly stands out as one of the very few DIVA supporters and clients, and we are proud to be associated with such equally dedicated company."
