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!
Huge Congratulations to Kimberley and Troy on their most recent assignment with Models Direct and check out the Google reviews they left….
“I had an assignment last week to catwalk Joe Brown’s latest fashion range. The planning and communication from Models Direct was spot on. They were very informative and supportive then when I got to the event I had such a brilliant experience, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and Models Direct gave me copies of my work within less than a week! Great agency to work for, I couldn’t have done this without them. Thank you 😊” – Kimberley Gregory

Considering it was my first job I was told I did really well which was lovely to hear. A big thank you to Models Direct for recommending me.” – Tara Byrne

“This was the first commercial set that I’ve been on and boy was it a movie!”
Being an extra can be a very exciting role to be selected for whether it be to appear in film, theatre or TV!
Most TV dramas, films, commercials, campaigns, music videos and theatre productions will include extras in some way. It could be a crowd scene that requires lots of additional people, a walk on part (non speaking) or a large scene, battle, party, street, public place that needs to appear full and busy – all these people have been booked as extra’s!
Models Direct often receive enquiries from production companies looking to book extras, they generally don’t have very specific requirements and acting experience is not always necessary. The client may need a particular age group, look, gender or ethnicity depending on the project, so the Models Direct team will source the ideal people.
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!
