Hi this is Catalin. I just wanted to let you know a bit about my experience with Models Direct / Talent Management. I had my first assignment with them about a month ago and it was really fun. It was a fancy dress photoshoot, something I’ve never really done before, it was great, the client was awesome. It was a lot of fun on set and I got a nice pay cheque at the end of the day for not too many hours. I had a good time and I would definitely recommend it. Thanks.

“Hi. It’s Fabrico here. Just giving you quick feedback regarding the commercial shot in Shoreditch. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, despite the weather. We spent four hours on the bus and almost forgot about the cold, although my toes didn’t. It was a great experience for me, the first time I was playing a character. I was asked to be a passenger on the bus, half asleep which was great fun. The team were very professional, friendly and we really, really had a good time, immediately at ease, well cared for, the makeup people (who unfortunately did not do any work on me), costumes and we were even given a cup a soup! So thumbs up, it was great. Whenever you need an Italian looking and sort of ‘daddy’ looking - I’m here. Thank you.”

“Hi there. This is Kian. I just want, first of all, to thank Models Direct for the opportunity for my assignment which was on Thursday. It was a very enjoyable day. I meet some great people. It was very simple. The instructions for what I had to do, costumes, everything, timing was up to scratch as well and generally a very nice enjoyable day. So I look forward to hopefully getting some assignments coming through and hopefully see where that leads to. Once again, thanks very much Models Direct for the opportunity.”

It was really good to being a model for Ford Commercial cars today, and I would love to do it again. The most enjoyable part of my assignment, is networking and  working with other models. I was ask to sit in a mini truck playing the part of the as the driver,. I felt  confident and comfortable.

 Been a model is exciting that's  why I decided to join Models Direct so that I can pursue my career in the modelling industry.

The photo shoot for Cineworld was a different, fun and a chilled-out experience and I would definitely do it again. I was a bit nervous as you naturally are but I was also excited because I'm a big movie fan! The most enjoyable part of this assignment was working with a fellow  female model. It was really chilled out, we laughed and just had fun doing the shoot; even got some free popcorn and drinks! Who wouldn't want a fun and enjoyable experience? I'd definitely recommend it! 

This shoot helped me to improve my movement, comfortability and confidence in front of the camera. I joined Models Direct  2 years ago to see if I had potential in this tough modeling industry. At first, I didn't think I'll get much work but the team started to contact me about shoots not long after joining. The MD team have been so supporting and caring from the start!

This is my second assignment from Models Direct this month, this involved performing (rapping)  during a Christmas wrapping competition in Highcross shopping center,  I performed  and edged the contestants on. Being an entertainer for the day was nerve racking at first but after the first wrap competition I gained confidence. The people hosting and organizing the event were really nice and showed me a lot of support throughout the day. I mostly enjoyed performing to a crowd and being able to attract an audience.  I would recommend the experience to others because it was extremely fun to do and allows you to build your confidence . Advice I would give someone wanting to pursue work in the talent industry, is to go for it there are many opportunities and you will be doing different things all the time. Curiosity, Experience, Money and Fun made me decide to join up with Models Direct.

I wasn't too nervous if anything I was excited to see what I would be doing. We were being filmed for a house party for a well known food brand, I was tasked with taking selfies with cut out Instagram board and then joining the rest of the revelers to let loose in the main party scene. My favorite part had to be the ending shot with all of us partying in the main area it was also were we would all get our main camera exposure. It was great fun being apart of the advert and I'd love to get the opportunity to do something like that again. I'd definitely recommend others to look at  joining Models Direct with the opportunity to take part in great things like this advert. It shows that you don't have to be a professional but it certainly helps you build a good portfolio for if you are looking to take up modelling or acting etc.

Harry has asked me to relay his experience...
He said he was nervous before the shoot but "Dan" from the crew gave him some tips on how to manage his nerves and from there he threw himself into the shoot and really enjoyed it! He loved the live band and has now become a fan.

The scene was a "live" party with 360 degree cameras and Harry and the other models were asked to dance and enjoy themselves while eating the "snack" being advertised.

Harry says he definitely feels more confident and would like to access more modelling work. Thank you Models Direct!

I really enjoyed the assignment as an extra for Walkers Christmas campaign  and met some lovely people. It was my first experience as a model and it was a real eye opener. The crew were professional and I would love to do more of this kind of work. 

I wasn't nervous because we were given good directions and the nature of the assignment was explained well. 

Models Direct are a well run and professional agency and I'm looking forward to getting more work through the agency.

This assignment for Bullring shopping center in Birmingham was very intriguing and the actual content of the build up to Christmas is important to some. It felt great knowing that a positive impact could be made interacting with the public. Looking forward to my next one. Thanks Models direct.

We were shooting a promotional feature with Northshot productions for an internet stock investment site. We all had a great time - the crew was very professional. They really put us all at ease. The production ran smoothly and we all got out on time. I'd do it again in a minute! Thank you  Models Direct!

I found this shoot for Northshot productions  a most pleasurable shoot. I had been given my script well in advance to learn the lines and the production team were friendly, professional and efficient.I was playing the part of a builder who after 35 years of running his own business was presented with the opportunity to generate an income stream from new software which has been developed by an American company. The filming took place in a church which had been converted into a spa and was a very impressive building.

Whilst I would not say I have learnt any new skills I felt as I always do, that a new acting experience can only help me develop.
Thank you Models Direct, I would welcome the opportunity to work with the same crew again.

Thanks to Models Direct I was given another assignment whereby I was to model and  promote men's underwear  in the Bullring  shopping center in Birmingham. 

This was a very nerve wracking thought to be stood there in such a public space but the client and camera crew made me feel very at ease and were very accommodating with any issues or needs.

The whole time I was there was very enjoyable and I had a lot of laughs and fun with the other models that were there. From meeting these people I have made new friends. 

It was a very fun project to be involved in and I would definitely recommend these sorts of assignments to anyone looking to further their career and gain experience in this market. 

I have gained confidence from doing this particular job and really look forward to my next assignment from the agency.

I felt very happy being a model for the day at The Birmingham Bullring Shopping center. I was a little nervous on my way to the shoot but as soon as I got there and introduced my self to everyone, I felt comfortable due to a friendly welcoming. The most enjoyable part of the assignment was interacting with the audience. The experience gave me more confidence working and connecting with new people. I would recommend the experience to others because the day was absolutely fun and enjoyable to take part in, and there is nothing more fun than being a model. 
If others are thinking of pursuing work in the talent industry I strongly advice joining an agency because it is their job to find you work and help you move forward in your career. I have been proactive in pursing work / updating my e-portfolio because I believe if you want to achieve and be successful in life you have to motivate yourself and drive to be better. Listening to feedback when given is always good as it will give you an idea of what needs to be improved to be the best you aim to be. I personally joined Models Direct because of my ambition in becoming a model and having experience in this field at a young age will help in the nearer future.

Being a model for the day was a fun and great experience, something that I would love to do again. The most enjoyable part of the assignment was meeting knew people from different parts of the country. For the assignment 5 models including myself had to model men underwear to the public in Birmingham Bullring Shopping Center. The public could get involved and rate what underwear they would prefer and thought would be most popular as a gift. It was fun and enjoyable as the public had a variety of views on what underwear they would prefer to wear or buy. I definitely gained more confidence from the assignment. I think it is a good move to join an agency as I wouldn't of got the opportunity to do this otherwise. I joined Models Direct to gain experience being a model and to  travel around the country and meet different people.

This was my first ever paid modelling shoot and I really didn't quite know what to expect. But as soon as I arrived at the main entrance, the atmosphere steadily became vibrant and full of positive energy.

The type of photo shoot was for a corporate eyewear company and I was interested to see what type of quirky designs they would have for us to model.

I couldn't believe how blessed I felt to be surrounded by such warm, down to earth, loving individuals. It was everything you could ever dream of as a model. The atmosphere was second to none.

Lyn, who's the Director of Strategic Planning - Sales and Marketing at ASE Corporate Eyecare Ltd, not forgetting the rest of the team, were absolutely amazing and extremely fun to have around. There were fond moments whereby we were all caught up in huge hysterics, it was great. They made us feel well relaxed and there was plenty of tea and coffee to go round. Kim also shared out some special candy to keep our sugar levels up.

There were tonnes and tonnes of glasses available to our disposal, 4,000 to to be precise. If we had another 1,000 models that would have made the atmosphere a tiny bit different.

Graeme the photographer was great to work with, so many stories to tell, also contributed to the relaxed and chilled atmosphere.

Lots of food and refreshments were served, fantastic hospitality as well as everything else. We all sat down together for a friendly lunch and a nice chit chat amongst the whole crew.

Ed and Katherine were the other models who I worked with during the shoot. Katherine is more experienced in the modelling game, whereas Ed and I were the virgins fresh out of Models Direct. We all got along so well and it was quite sad when we all had to part ways at the end, but we all exchanged details hoping to reunite in October when our photos will be displayed at an exhibition in Central London. Something to look forward to indeed.

Despite the rain throughout the whole shoot, we had plenty of sunshine in the building to go round. I would most certainly recommend signing up to Models Direct. I gained so much confidence and I also learnt to be myself, because who I was to everyone and where I came from really didn't matter, I was treated as an equal and I felt secure within myself being amongst everyone involved in the photo shoot.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Molly Robinson who is one of the Models Direct recruitment managers for giving me the opportunity to work with some amazing people. Would I do it again? What do you think? I can't wait for the next assignment. Bring it on!
