How was your talent booker?

I worked exclusively with Marie Brown. She was at all times courteous, informative, timely and professional. Particularly as this was my first time using a modelling agency, I greatly appreciated Marie’s advice and patience.

Hints & Tips when applying to Models Direct

A few helpful pointers to consider when making your application to Models Direct…..

If you have made the decision to apply to be a model then it’s important to make your application stand out above the rest. The Models Direct team have put to together a few helpful pointers to get you started.

How should I look?

  • Don’t wear make-up. If you do use it, go for light make-up using simple colours.
  • Do not wear any hats, scarves or bandanas.
  • If you hair isn’t long enough to tie in a ponytail, hold it back with a clip or band.

Look at magazines and catalogues to get some ideas for a good ‘commercial’ look. The most natural and flattering look is to pose with the head slightly angled. Try not to cut the picture off at any noticeable points, such as the shoulders, elbows, waist, or knees. Cut in between these points to soften the look and suggest continuation of the body.

Hints and tips for better photos

To make the most of photos taken by friends and family, suggest they follow these simple guidelines:

  • Avoid ‘camera shake’ by holding the camera steady. Use both hands, resting your elbows on your chest, or on a wall for support. Relax: don’t tense up. You can buy affordable mini-tripods for use with digital cameras that will get rid of camera shake altogether.
  • Direct eye contact can be as engaging in a picture as it is in real life. Hold the camera at the model’s eye level to unleash the power of those magnetic gazes and mesmerising smiles. For children, that means stooping to their level. Photos taken at eye level angle will have a personal and inviting feeling that pulls you into the picture.
  • A photograph is all about light, so think about how the light is striking the model. The best bet is to ensure that the sun is behind and to one side of the photographer. Lighting the subject from the front brings out colours and shades, whilst the slight angle produces shadow to indicate texture and form.
  • The best shots are simple, so move closer and remove any clutter from the picture. Filling the frame with just the face or even overflowing it will give your shot some impact.

Perfect Virtual Reality Trailer – LIVE!! #Sonyplaystation

Our model Lucy was pretty excited to be selected for the starring role in the new Perfect Virtual Reality Commercial for #Playstation!!

Lucy  has had previous experience in modelling and acting through Models Direct, but never before had she done anything like this. Her brief was to act out a response to different scenarios that were given to her and create the realism of these situations through her expressions. This was all to be done infront of a green screen, so special effects could all be added later in the process, therefore, Lucy had no idea what her surroundings were or what she was reacting to!

Read how Lucy got on: “Today, I completed my fourth job through Models Direct Agency. The #assignment was for a video games console commercial. I had the lead role which involved me wearing a pair of virtual reality glasses and pretending to react to my surroundings. There was a green screen behind me so special effects can be added during post production. One of the scenes included me acting as if I had stepped out onto a mountain and was gasping at the view! A wind machine was used to blow my hair around to help enhance the scene but it was my job to create the realism through my expression! It was fun day’ working with a lovely film crew – I cannot wait to see the finished commercial!”

A few behind the scenes pics of Lucy’s time on set!!

What an exciting experience for Lucy and great to add to her portfolio! The modelling & talent industry can be incredibly diverse and exciting. #Assignments range massively, so the more diverse you are the better!

Enjoy the trailer!!
