Male Model: How to become a model as a man?

You want to be a model? We are looking for male models with character and charm. Our top priority: changeability. But what are the requirements? It is important to us that our female and male models feel comfortable in their bodies, because a healthy self-confidence is reflected in their charisma. Only those who live the job with joy and conviction can call up a corresponding performance. Self-confidence, reliability and the ability to easily slip into different roles are three important skills to assert yourself in the modeling industry. Our customers pay attention to an expressive face, convincing looks, a good posture and coordination. Our Cocaine Models team takes care of our models with intensive management and prepares them for jobs in a goal-oriented manner.

How do I become a male model? Successful modeling as a man!

Prerequisites as Model and Male Model: Character Strength, Fitness and Courage

Self-confidence, reliability and the ability to easily slip into different roles are three important skills to assert yourself in the modeling industry. Our customers are looking for an expressive face, convincing looks, good posture and coordination. Our Cocaine Models team takes care of our models with intensive management and prepares them for jobs in a goal-oriented manner: From fitting models for designers to fashion shows and photo shoots.

But first of all you have to actively decide for yourself to become a model. Because especially at the beginning it is a lot of work, e.g. building up your model portfolio, which also means that you have to have a lot of patience, because nobody becomes a star overnight.

International male model: Chand visiting Germany

In our new little Model Doku we accompanied Chand three days in Germany. Together with Oliver Rudolph Chand shoots for trueprodigy. The brand sells in over 35 countries! So that the looks in the new lookbook, the shop and the store elements are also right, the Chand label flew in from Stockholm. We accompanied Chand backstage, in the hotel, in the gym but also at breakfast. A little insight for New Faces!

The customer – what are the agencies and designers looking at?

It is particularly important to the designers that their collections are presented by models that give the end consumer that certain “feeling”. A targeted choice of model is therefore decisive for the statistically growing sales figures. This shows how important it is for a model to develop a certain individuality, in short: uniqueness pays off. This ability is innate, but can be additionally trained. We support our female and male models in this way, continue to pursue classic chic and underline their uniqueness.

What does a man model have to know?

A sympathetic charisma is the be-all and end-all in the model business. A nice smile is also more important for male models than the washboard stomach. Solarium tanned skin is an absolute No Go! A big advantage of male models: They can work longer in the model business than female models. On the other hand, they are paid less than women.

Check list for male models:

  • Changeability: You must also be able to look younger than you actually are. In Germany, male types are more in demand, but “young boys” are particularly successful abroad, especially in France or Italy.
  • Optimum starting age: between 16 and 18 years of age
  • Development ability: You need to develop a sense of styling and your ability to perform properly constantly
  • Under 1,80 male models have hardly a chance, because they are not versatile applicable
  • Sporty physique is good
  • Striking facial features
  • On application photos: type of man must be recognizable, a smile is advantageous

Minimum dimensions for men and women

The requirements for models differ for male models and female models in their body size, why is that so? As you can read in our article about Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture, fashion collections in particular are cut to size by designers. This allows uniform fashion shows to be held later, but also showrooms and photo shootings. Due to the identical dimensions it is easier for designers but also for event agencies and advertising agencies to plan concepts and shows.

Women are usually 10 cm smaller than men. If you want to take off as a female model in Berlin, you should have a minimum size of 174 cm, even better 175 cm. The ideal case for female models in Berlin is 178 to 180 cm. This gives you the perfect size to work as a model. A minimum size of 185 cm applies to men models in model agencies. Ideally, you shouldn’t be over 6’8″. At High Fashion Models the figure should be slim, so you have the best chances to work for international high fashion brands. You’re more flexible as a Curvy model. But the body size should be similar. Here once again the most important summarized

  • Minimum size for men Models is 185 – 190 cm
  • Minimum size for women is 174/175 – 180 cm
  • High fashion models should have a slim figure and a hip below 92 cm
  • Plus Size and Curvy Models should have a clothing size of 42

Casting Outfit: Simple, so that nothing distracts from you as a model

As mentioned above – we just point out – you should have no styling / make-up at the casting, as well as at the photos for your application, plain clothing is the be-all and end-all! You should also do without makeup, your hair should be open. If you want to work for us in Berlin, it’s all about naturalness! No tanning salon, no gel nails, no hair extensions and above all no dyed hair! That’s why come to the casting absolutely naturally.

Plus Size Models and Curvy Models Wanted!

You know a beautiful woman with clothing sizes over 36-38? Then tell her now about our model casting on 13 April in Berlin. Already after our first Curvy Model Casting in Berlin, at the beginning of the year, we could find four new talents! They were already allowed to make the first showrooms. As a Berlin model you can go a long way, even if your measurements don’t suit the high fashion industry. Apart from high fashion, there is a lot of potential: catalogues, online shops, advertising and much more. Especially Plus Size Models are gradually conquering more market shares.

In advertising, they are much more authentic, since their dimensions resemble those of the average German woman. Did you know that the average woman in Germany is 44 in size? If you know a beautiful girl or a beautiful woman, tell her about us now!

Your first model application: Your first step to modeling

Have you decided to become a model or would you like to give your model career more seriousness and work more professionally? Then the first step is to find the right agency. You already have an appointment at an agency? Read how to prepare for your interview here!

Become a model – Application and interview

If you want to apply to us, you will find everything you need to know about the topic here:

Why do you need a model agency for modeling?

An agency is very important for a model, because it supports and protects you as a model. She helps you find photographers and jobs. No matter if you are booked as a model for shootings or catwalks, the agency will show you in the best light. The bookers know how to present yourself optimally with your book. As “New Face” you will be supported by your agency in setting up your book and your setcard. One very important point: an agency protects you from dubious customers and dubious job enquiries. Usually dubious customers already shy away when they learn that a model is represented by an agency. This is particularly important for an international modeling career, because models abroad are often underpaid and exploited. A reputable model agency ensures that you do not work unpaid overtime, that you do not take dubious pictures of yourself, that you are adequately paid and accommodated. In addition, the agency will determine in advance whether the job is of high quality and whether you can be associated with the customer as a model without your image suffering as a result. At best, every job should prove your model qualities and positively underline your image.

Photomodel Lookbook (Cocaine Models Management)

How do you find the best model agency as a newcomer?

There are now plenty of model agencies. But how do I even find a suitable model agency? And when is a modeling agency serious? Your search starts on the Internet. It’s convenient if your agency is within your radius. That’s why you should simply enter “Model agency + your city” in Google and browse the results. Since it is generally important for a model to be represented in the larger “Mode & Medien-Städten” in Germany, you should search for “Modelagenturen + Hamburg/ Berlin/ München/ Köln/ Düsseldorf/ Frankfurt”. You’ll get some results. The next hurdle: Now how do you know which of the agencies are even serious? One possibility is that there are already ready-made model agency lists on the Internet that are constantly updated, for example the Vogue list. With this you can assume that only well-known and serious agencies are listed. However, as a dedicated model you should take a closer look at your selected agencies yourself before applying.

Criteria for serious model agencies in Germany

In order to find out for yourself which agency is serious, you should go through different steps.

  • Step 1: The Agency’s website. Very important: A serious model agency has a serious website. A simple, clear design, a high quality board and information about the agency team.
  • Step 2: The level of the models. Take a look at the model board and determine the level of the models yourself. The following criteria will help you here: Do the models have optimal model dimensions and an impressive face? Are the pictures of the models high quality?
  • Step 3: Does the agency work with serious clients? You can easily research this on the agency’s website or on the agency’s social media platforms. In general, you can easily measure the seriousness of your customers according to their degree of recognition. Also the “likes” on Facebook or “Follwer” on Instagram show how well known and popular a model agency is.
  • Step 4: Search the Internet for reports from other models or clients of the agency. Note that not every comment is true. In order to get a better picture of the agency you should read enough testimonials and reviews of the agency. To say it in addition is: See these evaluations rather than references, make you nevertheless own picture.

Find your perfect model agency – Summary:

Recognize reputable model agencies:

  • serious customers (for example, well-known brands through advertising)
  • serious models (appearance, dimensions)
  • fixed admission criteria
  • serious website
  • Transparency regarding the agency team (for example through website)

Agency is not serious if:

  • No/untransparent website (no naming of agency headquarters or agency teams)
  • simple agency admission without preconditions and interview
  • no cooperation with serious customers
  • Admission fees will be charged

The model application

You have now found a suitable, reputable model agency and would like to apply as a model. What’s the best way to apply? Nowadays, applications are usually sent by e-mail, which means that you can find an e-mail address and a contact person to whom you can send your application via the agency’s website.

What must be in your application?

Most agencies publish their admission criteria on their websites. In general, you should state your measurements in your mail, i.e. chest, waist and hip circumference. You should attach great importance to the accuracy and timeliness of your measurement data, because an agency does not like it at all if you make false statements. You’ve never taken measurements yourself? No problem. No problem.

Take and measure measurements yourself

You simply measure your measurements with a normal tape measure. If you’re unsure, get someone you can trust to help you. To determine the exact circumference of your chest, the tape measure must be placed at the widest point of the chest and pulled to tension. Important for women: If you wear a bra when measuring, pull off approx. 1 cm, for push-up bras at least 2 cm. To determine the circumference of your waist, place the tape measure at the narrowest point and pull it tight. You measure the hip circumference at the widest point of your hip or bottom. The optimal model measurements for a woman (as a guideline) are 90-60-90.

In addition to your measurements, you should include pictures in your application. You should make a selection that shows you in different facets, i.e. commercial, fashion and beauty pictures from your book as well as simple Polaroids. You don’t have a book yet and no Polaroids? No problem. No problem.

Picture selection for your model folder

Some agencies prefer models who already have a certain selection of pictures. So you should start looking for different, good photographers. The easiest way to do this is via the Internet. Do the same as your agency search, i.e. search for professional photographers in your area, check their websites, look at their pictures and search for ratings of the photographers by other models. Important: Make a conscious choice. It is of little use to you if you thoughtlessly select numerous photographers who take similar pictures of you (for example, only fashion pictures). Rather, you should choose a few photographers who take different pictures of you in different “directions”, i.e. fashion, commercial and beauty pictures. Here applies: Invest rather a little more money, so that the pictures become qualitatively high-quality and convince. Only those who invest will benefit.

Polaroids for Models – Fast, clean photos

At some agencies even simple Polaroid pictures are sufficient for the application. You can do this yourself or get support from a friend or family member. Polaroids are clean pictures that show your body and face in different facets and give the agency a first impression of you. Polaroids show you in front of a white wall, a good exposure, without make-up, in plain, tight-fitting clothes (skinny jeans or leggings & simple top or T-shirt) and with women preferably in high shoes. One picture should be taken of you in underwear, on one picture you should laugh, on the other one you should look rather expressionless into the camera. Important: No big posing! The pictures should be simple and natural.

checklist for models

  • Optimal & exact dimensions
  • Optically neat look
  • Naturalness
  • The special something (For example, strikingly beautiful eyes/lips, small features such as a tooth gap or a mothers meal, long & undyed hair, a special radiance)
  • self-conscious, present & friendly appearance

If you meet all the criteria of the model agency and the bookers find you interesting, you will be invited to a personal interview at the agency.

Fashion Photography – Fashion & Haute Couture

Since the turn of the millennium, the three top dogs Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar no longer dominate the field alone – today’s fashion photographer is increasingly working for independent magazines and has raised the artistic standards for his pictures. The boundaries between art and fashion photography are becoming blurred, while the previously rather uniformly commercial direction is becoming blurred. That’s what our fashion photographer Oliver Rudolph says about fashion photography then and now! You want to learn to take pictures yourself? Here you can find our book recommendation: Learn to take pictures.

Fashion photography today – trends, zeitgeist and high fashion

Even today, the profession is subject to the constant change of ideals and the development of fashion itself, which is why my job as a fashion photographer lives particularly from flexibility and adaptability, and also requires a lot of openness for new things and a feel for trends. Anyone who equates the profession of fashion photographer with the mere photographing of clothes is clearly subject to a socially widespread cliché. Even today it is important to sum up the dreams of a society, the spirit of the times and the personal desires of a decade, and to stage them consciously as a fashion photographer.

Fashion photography, especially haute couture, should not only be visually appealing and aesthetically inspiring, but should also encourage the viewer to participate and imitate and at best be one step ahead of its era. The representation of fashion merges here with the representation of an idea. In close cooperation, whether fashion advertising agency, art director or marketing agent – from Los Angeles to London. The result is ultimately the ultimate staging – not of the dress, but of the fashionably dressed personality.

Fashion photography back then – big idols & fashion magazines

The first fashion photographer Adolphe Braun to be regarded as such published the first “Fashion Magazine” in 1856: a book with 288 photographs of the Comtesse Virginial Oldoini, who was the first fashion model to present her robes there. Since photography was by no means suitable for the masses and reproduction was still in its infancy, not much happened in the following years until 1892, when the first fashion series was printed in La Mode Pratique.

Fashion photography took a step forward at the beginning of the 20th century with the “Harper’s Bazaar”, the “Vogue” and the “Vanity Fair”, which until then had had to resort to sketched drawings. You can find out who’s the trend today here: fashion magazines. More and more fashion sections are published, and at the same time the first photo studios for fashion photography are being set up in Europe’s metropolises. Thanks to these circumstances, fashion photography had become an art form until the 1930s.

Until then, everything had focused on European centres such as Berlin, Paris and Hamburg. During the Second World War, most fashion photographers relocated their creative centres to the USA, where the hottest fashion centre ever established itself: New York.

Changes, trends and zeitgeist influence photography

The next change is due to a generational change between photographers and models, which is why fashion photography developed into a younger, more dynamic field of art in the 1960s. A decade later, fetishism and pornography came to the fore, but during the 1980s this declined sharply again and photography now took place in aesthetic worlds and often in classical black-and-white.

Since the fall of communism, fashion photographers have also become more realistic in their expression. The “Heroine Look” is also developing into a subculture of its own, and fashion photographers such as David LaChapelle are promoting the glamorous style that is so popular today. At the end of the 90s, the field repeatedly took a step in the direction of more freedom of movement – and fashion photography finally became what it is today.

Video production and image film: How to create a commercial – Insights!

IO Video Production for Commercials and Social Media Today Insights! How do commercials actually work? Video Marketing has far outstripped all other forms (Pring, Billboard, etc.) in the budgets. No matter if it is a commercial for the Superbowl or the Facebook clips for regional supermarkets. But how does the planning, organization, conception of commercials work? This article summarizes all aspects of IO Productions. Other articles and links about video production: Learn more about IO Video & Film Production.

How is a commercial or image film created?

Fashion brands, online stores, technology, automobiles … commercials all need. Because with advertising you can make products known but also brands. Today we give a deep insight into the production and its different steps:

  1. Storytelling: History, Emotions and Impact Chains
  2. Process – Initial Contact, Briefing and Brainstorming
  3. First Contact – initial discussion and ideas development with the agency
  4. Pre-Production: Video shoot Preparation of storyboard, equipment and team
  5. Production – Production Process and High End Equipment
  6. Post-Production: Video Sifting, Editing and Editing
  7. Promotional Videos and Commercials

The Process – First Contact, Briefing and Brainstorming

The process covers a variety of areas, from initial contact to finished video production on post production and delivery in various formats and scales. Depending on requirements and wishes, the approach in film production, as narrated in storytelling, is very multifaceted. At first, however, everything is limited to the first contact and the first briefing, what is it about?

  1. For which brand is produced?
  2. What does the brand want to promote?
  3. Is it a new product or an existing product being expanded?
  4. In which countries will the film be published?
  5. In which languages ​​will the film be published?
  6. Which media are you looking for for publication?
  7. How much budget is available for production?
  8. What video lengths and formats are expected by the customer?
  9. Which content should be transported?
  10. Is it part of a larger campaign?
  11. Is the commercial film the main medium or “only” part of the campaign?
  12. What needs does the product / brand fulfill?
  13. Are there competing products?
  14. What defines the target audience (demographic characteristics)
  15. Which wishes and needs does this target group have?

All these questions are raised on first contact.

First Contact – initial discussion and ideas development with the agency

At the first briefing on the upcoming video production, we talk to our customers about the parameters mentioned in the new video campaign. As a rule, the conversation is initially limited to a 30-minute meeting – after which you let the impressions take effect and subconsciously develop initial frameworks for the concept. In this 30-minute kick-off talk, you have a quick overview of the company, or about the products and services, which especially helps the creative director to get a first unobjective picture of the project. Likewise the wishes of the customer are noted, they are particularly important for the planning and the first thoughts. The third important point is the target audience, is it an existing demographic crowd, or is it a new address for potential customers who are not currently connected? From these three parameters, the first ideas can now be generated how a possible campaign can be implemented. The ideas then lead to a first customer briefing by roughly presenting the concepts. Therein is not only the content of the film or the different versions but also the chain of effects. The easiest way to compare this with the storyboard. Here is shown step by step what will happen in each scene of the final advertising clip.

Impact Chain and Storyboard: Imagery and Video Concept

In small, square boxes on paper or in PDF format every single important scene is named. In addition, it is shown at which moments the emotional effect is achieved. As a rule, one has to pay particular attention in the advertising film that the first moment is sitting. As a rule, this should be in the first two to three seconds. This time frame has not only been proven in classical studies, the new media (such as Youtube and Facebook) rely on these factors.

  • When you’re on Facebook, you count on ads, impressions from the third second,
  • on YouTube, the video ads can be skipped from 5 seconds,
  • Instagram also counts an impression from the third second in the video.

If you have not reached the consumer here, it will be difficult to get through to it. Therefore, especially the entry into the videos must work well and take the viewer directly!

Of course, the prior planning of promotional videos saves a lot of time in later production and makes the effect of videos more efficient. This will allow you to gain more sales but also generate more reach, which is why most companies invest in a good video production company that has been recommended to you. Thanks to numerous recommendations, we were also able to gather great reference projects within a short space of time, which we unite in our portfolio. As an agency for video production, we stand for quality, innovative media and the service of full trust. Our customers often give us a free hand for production so we can get the most out of them. In close consultation, we then design the parameters but also the storyboards, as just described. If everything is planned and defined, it goes into the production of the videos!

Pre-Production: Video shoot Preparation of Storyboard, Equipment and Team

After the conception of the film, one comes now to the final preparation. All agreements were made and that first storyboard was approved by the customer. In the following step, all concrete preparations are made. The storyboard will no longer be in its conceptual form, but will be worked out once more in detail. Based on the detailed storyboard you can now also plan the team members.

Team Planning in Video Production: Model, Make Up Artist, Stylist, etc.

The typical team in a video or commercial film production does not only include the videographer and the agency as well as the customer, but also various actors on the set. The more complex the production, the more people are involved in such production. As a rule, apart from product videos, you definitely need a model.

Booking Models: Promotional Models for Movies and Rights

For every video you need a suitable face that matches the brand but also to the message that should be conveyed. Models are absolute professionals in their field and have through their many years of experience with photo shoots and commercial production a sense of how to create planned emotions controlled. At the push of a button they can show that they have a certain “need”, that they rejoice, that they develop mourning, that they show affection. Especially in an elaborate production, such a professional model is worth gold!

Models not only ensure that the emotions are transported perfectly and that the campaign looks good, they also ensure a good mood on the set. Their professionalism and positive charisma make for a generally good mood, which also speeds up production and raises results to a higher level. In the end, however, it is not just about booking the model, but also about the rights of use and the work with modeling agencies. Besides the perfect advertising model, you also need a make-up artist or hair and make-up artist.

Make-up artist booking: Hair and Make Up Artist for perfect video sequences and close-ups

Even when booking make-up artist we take care of everything, rely on our service and we organize experts in hair and make-up. In addition, you need the perfect clothes for many shoots, the outfit has to sit! Therefore, to book a hair and make up artist, the organization comes to the stylists.

Booking Stylists: Outfit, Accessories and Harmonious Colors

Stylists are on the set, so outfit, accessories & amp; Sitting jewelry perfectly. They make sure that everything goes well apart from hair and makeup on the model. Finding good stylists is not so easy, because the job is very demanding and requires good contacts. However, we are happy to help you find the perfect stylist with our contacts

If an elaborate video production is already organized, it is often advisable for companies to directly book a photographer. On this one day, many people are on site and already organized, photographers can perfectly capture those moments as “backstage” or “behind the scenes” shots. This picture material can be used not only for own PR measures or press, but of course also for social networks, as well as on the own company website, thereby one has beaten two birds with one stone directly. If the set is organized intelligently, photo and video production can even take place in parallel. This is often worthwhile especially for companies from the travel industry but also from the fashion industry, eg. in the photography and videography of travel catalogs or advertising films for travel or lookbooks in the fashion industry. The resulting image material is versatile, a perfect complement to the shoot. So our recommendation for video productions is to book directly with an experienced photographer.

We take care of your team but also your video production

All of these plans are complex, but as we draw on many years of experience, as well as an extremely large network of photographers, videographers, make-up artists, make-up artists, stylists and many more, we can quickly and easily produce perfect video results even for complex productions help! After the pre-production, the entire planning, we have everything now! Now it starts, the big production!

Production – Production Process and High End Equipment

In the following step we go into the production of the commercial. Depending on the size of the production, everything is organized on one day, spread over several days or even on different dates, with short break times. Especially for transnational productions, eg. when production is due in the US, plus a flight to Canada and Europe, such a production stretches. Of course, as an agency you try to bring in your expertise directly in order to make the most efficient ways possible. This saves time but also costs for the customer. This is always the highest priority for us as an agency. The location was already visited in advance and prepared for production. On the day of production, you as a customer are on site to take everything away. We also always recommend that a person is on site. This allows a direct insight into the production and also a direct influence on the image and video material.

Production Process: Location, Look and Teamwork

At the beginning of each production, the team gathers to discuss the final details. Then the models are prepared by the make-up artist, while videographers prepare the set with helpers and assistants. On some sets the whole day is produced, others change the location. With well-organized technology and high-quality equipment, all productions are done quickly – preparation is everything! Depending on the production then also technical devices are used. Here is just an overview of the most important devices of current productions.

Gimbal: Quiet camera pans for breathtaking scenes

With the gimbal camera shots can be simulated, which used to be elaborately made with rail technology. This technique stabilizes the camera and lets the videographers work freely. In short, the gimbal replaces the classic rail system. Camera shots are very smooth (smooth) even though the videographer is running or even running alongside the actor or model. Such recordings are needed z.b. slow camera shots for the automotive industry but also production for sports manufacturers, eg. when the runner starts jumping. The cameraman starts at the same moment and captures the pictures. In the past, complex and expensive rail systems had to be installed here, and today it is enough to have a high-quality gimbal for production. How should I look a high-quality camera ride, you see z.b. here, despite rocks and cliffs, just rides without wobbling.

Sony Camera: High End Image and Video Quality for Commercials

Most video productions do not require huge cameras today, processors and chips have become so small that size is hardly relevant anymore. Modern camera technology can be packed in extremely small housings. 80% of our recordings are currently produced by Sony Equipment. In this way, we guarantee our customers first-class camera quality and high brilliance in the pictures. This is especially important for customers who pay attention to high quality material. And that’s what you pay attention to, right?

After the production is done, all materials on memory cards are backed up twice. In the following it goes back to the agency to make the production of the video. In post-production you have three big steps:

  1. Viewing the video footage
  2. Editing and Editing Video
  3. Customer’s change loops

Now let’s take a closer look at the post production of commercials. Again, depending on the complexity of the matter, that is from the small advertising film for Facebook, the designed to 10 seconds to the image film that runs for 15 minutes and is used for press, PR and internal use. In summary, post production can be described in this way.

Post-Production: Video Sifting, Editing and Editing

In this last step of the video production it is about sighting, editing and changes, in agency circles also the “change loop”. First, we start with the sifting of the material from the different cameras.

Viewing the material

Even when viewing the material of the video production, a good videographer pays off immediately. He still has all the cuts in his head, sequences and the different cameras that were used. All the material is now merged and spotted on the best scenes, these are stored in extra tracks and sequences, as in a classical were economic analysis, after A, B and C material.

Cutting the videos

After the material has been spotted and divided into the different categorizations, start the cutter by cutting the material. Different video sequences are joined together and depending on the complexity of the video (final product) still filled with text or with animated logos or fonts or explanations. Cutting is a relatively time-consuming and complex process, but with good production, much has been clarified and organized in advance. Ideally, this will allow the cut to be kept to a minimum so that you can get into the first loop of change with the customer as quickly as possible. The rough cut first shows a first version, which is the basis for further processing and modification. First, the customer should make an overview, so that the rough cut is approved. Only now the videos are finally put together and configured when it comes to light but also all other important settings and configuration of the video material. At the end, the cutter will produce different formats and versions. Why?

There are various streaming platforms, including TV, cinemas, the entire online world and of course social networks. It will display video generated by HTML5 animation or banner ads for other online stores in GIF format. Likewise, individual formats for Instagram but also Musical.ly or other versions, faster and sleeker for Facebook, while another version for YouTube goes long, about 12 minutes.

Change requests and editing

If everything goes well after the customer’s change loops, all of these different formats are exported and subsequently provided to the customer. The fact that the media can be used across networks increases the success of the videos. It increases the reach, hence the interaction and, ultimately, the sales results or the desired results of the campaign.

That’s it!

No matter if it is a commercial for the Superbowl or the Facebook clips for regional supermarkets. According to this principle, commercials and image films are produced by agencies! Other articles and links about video production:

The advertising model – model for advertising & sales talent

Advertising model – A professional goal of many prospective models is it to see itself finally in a advertising film or Werbeclip on the television or on-line. But also poster or print advertising is one of the fields of activity of an advertising model. For models, we give as a model agency in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Cologne a little insight! Not only the income for the model is higher than for example in the area Catwalk, but also the awareness level of a model can increase enormously by an advertising campaign of a successful company or brand. This in turn means that the model not only collects valuable experience for the future, but also the market value of the model increases. And seriously – who wouldn’t like to smile down from a huge poster? Or generally associated with an exclusive company or brand? But what exactly hides behind the term “advertising model”?

Model Job Classic: advertising, billboards and advertising campaigns

What does a good photo model or advertising model do?

The term advertising model is a specific term for a model, which is particularly active in the field of advertising, i.e. advertising posters, advertisements, advertising films, advertising clips or the like. Such models are also called Commercial Models. They have a pretty face (according to the social norm), look natural and have a good figure, but not too thin.

Advertising model – prerequisites and requirements

The size is not basically insignificant as an advertising model, but in the advertising industry smaller models smaller models (e.g. with a size of 170 cm) also have a chance. Anyone who appears unthinkable on the catwalk can be exactly the right type in advertising. The girl or the boy next door, with a sympathetic charisma? Perfect. A radiant smile? Duty. The customer should finally be able to identify with the models.

Cared for exterior – The be-all and end-all in model business

Nevertheless, the model gives the company a certain image or should underline the already defined image of a company. To do this, the model must be able to identify with the company, and vice versa, the company with the model. In a cosmetics chain, for example, a photo model with impure skin and a face that is not symmetrical is unthinkable. Also with a hair advertising model there is a basic rule: The model must not have broken hair. So the exact type logically depends on the products and services to be advertised.

Advertising models – What do you earn?

The profession of the advertising model is particularly popular, since the payment for the jobs is significantly higher than for fashion models, for example on the catwalk. For an advertising model, it is essential that it is represented by a model agency that sets a high (justified) daily fee right from the start, as it is possible that subsequent jobs of this kind in the same product groups will be omitted. After all, the model should stand authentically for the product to be advertised. The recognition value of a model and a brand is decisive, therefore the faces of a big brand are reluctantly booked.

Advertising, advertising photography and spots for brands

Advertising is a broad sector in the area marketing. But what does everything count among them at all? And why is advertising one of the best paid jobs in the model business? In addition to poster advertising, flyers, catalogues, advertisements and general print advertising, advertising clips for both TV and the Internet are also part of the advertising spectrum. Through the instruments, e.g. the carrier media, companies try to polish up their image on the market or to set it at all. And they do so quite deliberately.

The big brands their marketing strategies

Well elaborated marketing strategies are behind an ultimately simple advertising campaign that is spread through the media. The enterprises try to address directly their target group and to communicate with this on another level to affect also. This has the goal that the customers feel addressed, identify themselves with the enterprise and the sales market finally increases. In order for the company to achieve these processes optimally, it is important to find the right models for the right advertising. Ultimately, it is these models that bring the company’s message to the customer.

Prerequisites Demands on a model in the advertising industry

The demands on an advertising model are manifold. Not only the corresponding appearance, good figure, certain size and a pretty face, counts. This is a prerequisite for gaining a foothold in the model business.

Self-confident, authentic and natural

However, success as an advertising model will only come to those who fully unfold in front of the camera and work ambitiously on themselves. An advertising model must feel comfortable in its skin. No matter how many pairs of eyes watch exactly how you shave your legs, smear a nut nougat cream bread or jump rope.

Authenticity is also very important, you have to stand for the corresponding brand and at the same time look real and natural, and a sympathetic charisma. Every viewer prefers the smart, bright girl next door to the arrogant prima ballerina. However, it’s also important for the nice neighbor girl that she shows a natural self-confidence. A quiet little mouse is out of place in the advertising industry.

The consumer should be able to remember you and associate the product with your strong charisma. Because everyone would like to be self-confident, energetic and positive. A radiant smile is just as much a top priority as good skin and beautiful hair. Good body care is a prerequisite. But the absolutely decisive argument for the selection of an advertising model is the acting talent. You have to be able to put yourself in a role and embody it with full conviction.

Advertising costs and budgets for digital advertising campaigns

Calculating advertising costs for social media marketing is expensive in classic advertising campaigns. A specific advertising budget is spent by a company on a product, the analyzes then try to measure the successes. However, it is hard to come to a conclusion about how high the advertising investment was and how expensive each new or reactivated customer was. In social media advertising, measuring success is much easier and, above all, faster. In the media agency, everything is calculated exactly and at the end the measures are measured, for example, by means of the CPC (Costs Per Click). If the click cost is higher, more budget will be invested in the ad.

A / B testing for conversion and click optimization of advertisements

A / B Testinghelp the click optimization of advertisements. In order to have a good overview of the successes, the chances and of course the risks, A / B tests are conducted in good agencies. Here are different ads types, graphics and texts played in the advertisements against each other. Users will click more frequently and less frequently. The results of the test will help you tailor your ads to the buyers for a high CTR (conversion). In the end, only the most efficient ads will be promoted, while the less efficient ads will be turned off by the media agency. The free slots are then filled by new campaigns. In this way, we sustainably optimize the online sales of our customers and keep the media efficient and up-to-date.

Another criterion for a successful appearance: Be in a good mood! A good look is half the battle, because the booker sees you with the same eyes as a potential customer. If you have bad manners and look rude or uninspired, this falls back to the agency. A booker will only include you in the agency portfolio if he can send you to a client with a clear conscience.

Flexibility is paramount for models at the beginning

For a modeling agency your motivation is a crucial criterion. Become aware of the following in advance: Do you want full-time modeling or is modeling for you more of a hobby or extra income? Big agencies will only work with you if you are flexible in terms of time and modeling is your priority. There is nothing more disagreeable for an agency than a model that does not have time to go to auditions or accept jobs. In addition, you should think about what your exact motivation is to model. Think about: Why do you want to model? What is important to you? Convince the modeler’s bookers of your motivation, your experience, your time flexibility and generally your benefits.

Process of the interview in the modeling agency

The procedure of the job interview in a modeling agency varies depending on the agency. Basically, you introduce yourself at the beginning, presenting your experiences, your motivation and your preferences. The booker looks at your footage with you and often gives you a direct, short feedback. Depending on the booker’s interest in you as a model, your measurements will be measured, short Polaroid images or video presentations made. You may need to introduce yourself in English briefly so that the booker can see directly if he can suggest you to international clients. Last but not least, a booker can ask you to put your skills to the test, i. He wants to see a short posing or a short catwalk run of you.

Admission in the modeling agency – The call

After your personal performance date, it’s time to wait and see, because the agency will accept you in the rarest cases immediately. As a rule, the Booker team says goodbye to you with the words “Thank you for your visit. If interested, we will contact you. “And that can sometimes take a while. If you have not received any feedback after two weeks, it is recommended to send a short e-mail to the booker, in which you kindly ask if the agency has already made a decision regarding your inclusion in the model card index. This shows your strong will. Basically, you should then receive a commitment or commitment. If this is not the case, you have no choice but to wait and hope for the best. In no case should you write further e-mails or make calls, because you do not want to annoy the agency and if there is interest, the agency will contact you.
