2018 is here!!! Are you one for new year resolutions, diets, exercise regimes, new career….. what are your goals for the year ahead….?
A new year can be a super exciting time, but also can be quite daunting! Everyone around you is talking about what they hope the year ahead will hold for them, what they want to achieve and how they will better themselves, it’s a time when most people reevaluate their lives and themselves as people.
For a lot of people the new year is a opportunity to try something new and the Models Direct team get lots of interesting enquiries from clients around the UK with their marketing and campaign briefs for the year ahead. The Assignments team start scouting suitable talent for these roles and compiling shortlists for our clients to consider to make sure they have the right people for their exciting new campaigns, commercials and up and coming brands!
There’s a big demand for model families – earning money and being together – doesn’t get much better than that….or does it?
It does when you are selected to work as a model family, in your pj’s, on a bed for the day, paid to have a duvet day – yes please!!
That’s just what one of Models Direct’s model families was selected to do by Mattressman for a recent product shoot. The shoot took place in Norwich and the Brown family had a lovely day relaxing, playing games and reading on a big bed in their pj’s – what fun!!
The Models Direct team were delighted to be able to offer this opportunity! If you think your family has what it takes to be a model family then check out www.modelsdirect.com for all the information.
When a child model is selected for an assignment it’s essential that parent and child feel completely and have all the details they may need about the assignment, check out how our model Freya got on at her recent assignment in Cambridge for a large safety awareness campaign!
“I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct models.”
We would like to express our gratitude for making our daughter’s first ever assignment so enjoyable for us all, we really didn’t know what to expect as this is a completely new adventure for our family. From the moment you rang us letting us know that Freya was shortlisted for the assignment until the actual photoshoot and beyond, we felt valued, reassured, comfortable and very well informed about the process step by step. When we arrived at the venue, there was a lovely representative of Models Direct
that greeted us and the waiting room was very welcoming. The most important thing for us was that our daughter was happy with the photoshoot and comfortable in that environment and I can honestly say that she really enjoyed her experience. Everyone was so friendly and our daughter was full of smiles although your client needed a serious facial expression for their campaign :).
We got there eventually! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct
Assignment feedback is always helpful for the Models Direct team to receive from their models after an assignment…….
A lot of time and planning goes into every assignment by one of the booking coordinators at Models Direct. The coordinator will have built up a relationship with the client, will have spent time understanding their requirements and searched for the ideal models to put forward to the client as options – sometimes this can be quite a long winded process!
The Assignments team at Models Direct often get enquiries from clients looking for fitting models……What are the requirements for a fitting model?
Being a Fitting Model may not be something you hear about alot, but they are an essential part of the design process for fashion designers and clothing manufacturers. When working as a fitting model or (fit model) you are acting as a live mannequin, the client will want to see what the fit, drape and visual appearance is like of their product on a ‘real’ person.
When you hear the word ‘Modelling’ it’s very likely you imagine, catwalks, film sets and magazine covers……however this is not always the case! (often not!)
At Models Direct we supply models to a huge variety of clients in many different industries, from food to fashion, big brand stores, health services and many more!
Quite often our models are taking on a different role in the photo-shoot or commercial they have been booked for, they could be portraying a family member, doctor, nurse, office worker, patient etc – to be successful in commercial modelling you need to be adaptable and confident in your ability to take on a role and make it appear real!
The modelsdirect.com website has undergone a ‘facelift’ and we are super pleased with it!
Models Direct and Talent Management have been representing models and talent in the entertainment industry for almost three decades nationally and internationally. We have evolved over time, and our in-house design team work hard to ensure we’re always at the top of our game, keeping up with industry trends.
It’s now easier than ever to share information, pictures and updates with one another, it’s the perfect way to stay informed and get a better understanding of how such a busy and competitive industry like modelling works!
The aim for the marketing team at Models Direct is to share our success stories with you, enabling you to hear our models experiences from assignments recently completed, all the behind the scenes pics and videos of our models in action on set, team pics and fun from Models Direct Head Office and of course featured new faces who have recently been signed by Models Direct – there’s so much to share with you!
What could be better than spending the day having fun, getting messy outdoors with your family and being paid for it??
That’s exactly what our model family ‘The Burtons’ were selected for! The Models Direct Assignments team were contacted by a production company who were filming a promotional video for the NSPCC’s latest campaign, the #Messathon looking for a model family to star in the video.
The Burton family were successfully selected and had to spend the day outdoors, getting messy and having fun while being filmed – what a lovely day! AND they were paid for it!
