Another day at the office – with AXA PPP Healthcare

Published: 29th Jan 2021

It is exciting enough going along to a commercial modelling assignment, but when you unexpectedly become one of the stars of the show, it becomes extra special!

This is exactly what happened to one of our models, James, when he was booked to take part in a YouTube commercial for AXA PPP Healthcare.

Models Direct contacted James, together with three of our other eager stars – Rahul, Kristina and Waleed – to let them know they had been selected to take part in the shoot in London.

The four commercial models jumped at the chance to pose as office workers, pottering around in the background of the YouTube video, while the action took place in front.

But in the end, the team were so impressed by James that they gave him one of the leads.

The is what James had to say afterwards:

“Once again, another great assignment and experience with Models Direct. This time I was put forward as an extra for an advert, though in the end I was given a feature role by the director. The people I worked with were really friendly and professional. It was a very enjoyable assignment to be a part of.”

For Waleed, it was all a new experience, but he also enjoyed being part of the action:

“We had to create an office environment and be casual and natural,” he recalls. Everyone was very supportive, and we had a laugh and a lot of fun making the video. Thank you very much Models Direct for giving me chance to get some modelling experience.”

Rahul also had fun in front of the camera:

“It was a great shoot; they were very professional people, I loved to work with them,” he was quick to say in his feedback. Thanks Models Direct for a great day.”

And for Kristina, the assignment was also a huge success:

“Thanks to Molly for securing me the job for AXA PPP Healthcare’s YouTube commercial,” she said afterwards. The job kept to their timings and the people were very friendly and professional.”

Do you think you could be an extra like Rahul, Kristina and Waleed? Or perhaps centre stage, as James was in the end?
