Being an international agency the Models Direct Assignments team get enquiries from companies and production agencies all over the world, looking to source the ideal model for their latest campaign.
The Models Direct team love hearing from our models, we always make sure we speak to every model after an assignment to hear how they got on!
We are now very pleased to say that we are going to feature guest bloggers on here regularly to give you, our readers an insight into Models Direct as an agency direct from our talent!
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!
“We really do rate Models Direct, for us it was the best decision we made putting Myleigh forward and now as a family we are doing things together, having fun and getting paid!!” – The Pearce Family
The Assignments Department at Models Direct often get enquiries from clients looking to book a model family for their latest advertisement, campaign or commercial…..
More often than not it’s the job of the booking coordinator here at Models Direct to search our database and try and find adults and children that look similar or could act as a family and present them to the client for their approval. Obviously this job could be a lot easier if they were actual REAL families!!
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
There are so many different Halloween make up options to choose from, how will the Models Direct team ever decide which ones to go for…….?

“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.
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!
