Our lovely model Carmen started the New Year with a bang and was successfully selected for a super exciting assignment being an extra in a commercial for a global tech brand!!
“Yesterday I was given a filming assignment from Models Direct for Nokia. It was a great start to the new year. I made lots of new friends. Thanks Models Direct for this opportunity. Happy new year.” – Carmen
Check out what Carmen has to say about her experience:
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.
Tips for being your best on a promotional assignment!
Promotional modelling is a great way to get into the world of modelling, Models Direct supply promotional models to a large selection of different clients across the UK. Promotional models are used at store openings, clubs, trade shows and public events to promote a business, service or product. This can involve handing out leaflets, chatting to visitors or maybe getting visitors to fill out a competition form. Whatever type of promotion modelling is offered, it’s a good introduction to modelling and can earn you some extra money.
Catalogues such as The Next Directory, Freemans, Kays and Look Again use many models from new born babies, children, teens, male and female models selling everyday products to consumers. Models Direct represent catalogue models and have provided models to well known clothing companies for many years.
Catalogue modelling can provide regular work because of the change in seasons each year which launches new clothing and trends. Pay is usually generous within this sector because of the vast number of images that are taken to display the ranges of clothes stocked by the company. These pictures are displayed in both print and online catalogues.
As an aspiring male model there are things you can do to give yourself the best shot at succeeding in the modelling world.
The modelling industry is very competitive and although your agent like Models Direct, will do the best they can to promote you and secure you assignments with companies and brands, they can not be YOU on the day, so it’s essential you know what is expected of you and how to make the best first impression, this is vital with agents and photographers!
Sometimes when the team at Models Direct receive an assignment brief a member of the team will have the perfect person in mind!
This was the case last week when Marie from Models Direct was contacted by Charlie Wells Brewery who were looking for a specific person to promote their beer at an exclusive tradeshow in Bedford – our male model Gavin sprung straight into Marie’s mind!
The demand for animals in advertising is big and growing all the time! With only seconds to capture your audience’s attention, a witty comment or a cute animal works well!
We have all seen animals used in commercials for lots of different brands and high street stores. Buster the Boxer in the John Lewis Christmas commercial, McDonalds, Perina Dog Food, Whiskers…..the list goes on!
