“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!!
Most of us can only dream of our wedding venue being in such a prestigious location as The Savoy, London, however that’s just what models Sabah, Khedidja and Jake got to experience…..
Models Direct’s client, Brides do Good are a social enterprise who sell luxury pre-loved and sample designer wedding gowns, up to two thirds of the sales of their collection of dresses are donated to their partner charities, Plan International and Too Young To Wed, to eradicate child marriage.
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!
At Models Direct it is not essential to have professional pictures, we don’t ask our models to have expensive portfolios either, however it is essential to provide us with good, clear, up to date images of yourself, for us to have the best chance of securing you work.
Using animals in advertising has become a trend and it’s something us as the consumer see everyday. The nations big brands are launching their new marketing campaigns using cute and funny animals to promote their product or services – this is a very powerful marketing tool.
Animals, particularly baby animals, have very likable traits that make it easy for us to form emotional bonds, successful advertising is done by playing with our emotions and how something makes us feel – we will automatically be drawn to that particular brand if it makes us feel good or more to the point we are made to believe it will make us feel good!
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!
Our little model Radisson secured his first assignment landing the starring role in a commercial for a new nursing/sports bra – at 1 yrs old that’s a massive deal!
For a mum it can be very nerve wracking taking a toddler on to a set with crew, models and of course expensive equipment, non of which are toddler friendly. The team at Models Direct always do their very best to make sure mum’s (and dad’s) are fully briefed before taking their little ones to assignments, but it always helps to hear other mum’s experiences of working in this industry with a toddler in tow – check out Radisson’s mum’s feedback:
Judging by the smile still on his face after his modelling assignment last weekend, there won’t be many people having a better Sunday then Isaac had. He picked up his first assignment as an extra with Models Direct modelling agency and in his own words…
“I had such a sick time. It was generally so cool. They made my day – I had the best Sunday. Thank you Models Direct”
No problem Isaac – glad you had a great time. The assignment involved several Models Direct models being filmed watching a live band for a commercial. Watch the clip below and let Isaac tell you for himself what he had to do to earn his £292 modelling fee…
It’s 5 up for Models Direct model Annie. This time looking fabulous at modelling photo shoot to promote a wedding venue in South Wales. Hair, make-up and outfits all supplied by the client and we have to admit, Annie looks stunning and did the modelling agency proud. Some lovely photos for Annie to add to her already impressive modelling portfolio.
Ashleigh found herself modelling, signing and dancing on her Models Direct assignment for a well known crisp manufacture. Posing in front of the cameras, trying to create a ‘party’ atmosphere for the Models Direct client helped Ashleigh with her modelling experience. And the most enjoyable part was? ‘…well,most of it really. I joined the modelling agency because I like the idea of modelling on the side as I love taking photos, and the money and trying new and different things’.
