Preparing for Modeling Casting Calls

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Casting calls present models with the opportunity of breaking even in the industry and enjoying the lucrative career. This is similar to an interview and it usually has directors and producers present who will judge what you have on offer. It is therefore important for all aspiring models to be more familiar with casting calls so that they can go with the required mind-set. Always remember that the modeling industry is relatively competitive and is part of the entertainment industry so ensure that you approach it with a business mind. This is actually why the casting calls will pick models that will help them in making more profits. The role that they will be auditioning for must be given to someone who will monetize it at the end of the day.

When you want to be adequately prepared for the casting calls, always ensure that you do extensive research both online and offline. This means that you need to familiarize yourself with the producers and companies that you can seek employment from. Assessing the past models that they have worked with will give you useful information on whether they are likely to work with you or not. Dressing is vital. Do not show up for the audition dressed in a manner that does not represent what the agents and clients are looking for. You should refrain from wearing costumes when you are attending the castings unless it has been specified so. Most companies usually provide the costumes when they need their models to dress in a particular way so as to portray a certain character. Bottom line: Dress in a business or casual manner.
Another important thing that you need to prepare as well is your resume. In the event that you do not have a portfolio yet then you should ensure that you create one with the help of a professional photographer. Take close up photos and full ones as well and put all in the portfolio. For people with past modeling experiences, they need to state where they worked in the resume so that the potential agents and clients can be more aware of their skills. Write the location where the audition will be taking place plus the date and time on your diary. Plan how you will get there and ensure that you do so in ample time because lateness is intolerable and may cost you the spot altogether.
On a conclusive note, do not wear shouting colors but just keep it simple. The accessories that you choose also need to complement your style but avoid anything that attracts too much attention as it can easily work against you.
