India, Jacob and Zane were so excited to hear from the Models Direct team that they had been successfully selected to star in the new Pukka Pads commercial, how exciting!
The shoot was a full day and would take place in Poole, Dorset. The models would be filmed while playing with two of the Pukka Pads new products, to promote how fun and user friendly they are for children.
The team here at Models Direct love love love the feedback we receive form our models when they have finished an assignment – it’s so great to hear how the assignment went and see the genuine excitement and enthusiasm in our models faces when they are buzzing from being involved in such an exciting and fun opportunity!
Modelling is incredibly competitive, but there is a big demand for talent in the industry for all types of assignments. We speak to clients everyday looking for extras for a commercial they are shooting, fashion models for a catalogue or look-book shoot, voice overs, and of course actors to being doubles or securing the staring role – we never know what the enquiry will be from one call to the next, the life of a booking agent is stressful and incredibly exciting!
Our model mum and daughter team, Samantha & Sienna were super excited when they were selected for an assignment here at Models Direct!
The assignment was a shoot for a range of new sleeping products aimed at expectant mums and new babies which would be available in high street stores!
Samantha joined Models Direct while expecting Sienna as we do get requests from clients for expectant mums, however Samantha’s opportunity came up when Sienna was just a few weeks old and she was over the moon!
It is such a great part of the job to hear all your excitement and news from assignments you’ve done, we love receiving your feedback!
The enquiries we receive daily in the Assignments department vary hugely, from supplying talent to small independents to arranging large groups of extras, models, actors for big productions, it’s non-stop!
We make sure all our talent are briefed fully before an assignment with all the information they require including, locations, timings, client details and any other info the client would like them to have.
The excitement of being selected for an assignment is huge, especially if it’s your first assignment, a step in the door! There’s no telling when that step may happen, your commitment and determination to the industry plays a part too!

The talent industry can be a confusing and daunting world for an aspiring model/actor/singer, so how do you get an agent to notice you??
The most important factor is self presentation….
- How do you want the industry to see you?
- What sort of assignments/work do you want to be considered for?
- Do you look yourself in your pictures?
- Do you stand out to a prospective client or casting director?
All of the above are factors you need to consider when submitting an application to an agency. More often than not a client will select talent from photographs only, not all request castings or meetings in person, so it is essential you are getting the best from the photographs that you are be promoted with!
