Cocaine Models – the model agency for women. Since our beginning, our model agency has focused in particular on the cooperation with female models. We want to motivate them to go their own way, regardless of what is often predetermined. Being a model means living a dream, meeting new people, discovering new cities and countries.

Girl power! The new generation Models

The, if you will, training usually starts early. At the age of 14, 15, or even 16, the first girls apply to our agency. While they are still at school, they work on building up their own careers. Before we start with sets from renowned customers, the focus is on getting to know the industry. Through discussions with parents, model coachings, test shootings with first-class photographers, the creation of your own model portfolio. Step by step, you will be introduced to the topic of fashion models. What’s the big deal? What are the most important experiences you have to gain? Before you really meet important customers, you have to work hard on discipline, motivation and ambition. Because the competition with women in a model agency is big! While very few boys pursue their dream of becoming a model, for many young girls this is the dream job par excellence.

It went on over the years, up to the new music video of Miami Yacine to the song designer. We help your production to find the perfect model. Music videos are not mayflies, but are present for weeks, months and years if they are successful. Especially through YouTube, music videos have reached an incredible longevity they didn’t know before. That’s why the choice of models for many musicians and productions is more and more in focus, because the look of the video often stands or falls with the protagonist. We will help you with model selection for your music video, as well as administration and travel management when circumstances require.

Model selection and booking for music videos

First send us your booking request, with important information about production and publication. This includes various information such as

  • Date of production – start, end, pauses, etc.
  • Travel times – arrival, departure, pick-up at airport / train station, etc.
  • Type of production – video, photo, quantity, type of job
  • Models – number, specific information about age, appearance, size, etc.
  • use – use in which media, at what time and in which places

The booking request will then be received by our model agency. Here one of our experts will take care of the booking request. You will receive your feedback within a very short time. Depending on how detailed the information was, with queries or directly with suggestions for production. It is important that you collect all information in advance to ensure a fast and smooth booking process.

Our model agency does not only take care of the selection of the models for a music video, but also of the complete production planning. That means hotels, travel and of course the briefings. So you can fully concentrate on your music video shooting while we pull the strings in the background for your actors.

Music video production

Music video productions are usually very expensive and connected with large expenditure. Within one day everything has to be in place, the entire production team is planned, the location and the equipment. From 8 o’clock to 19 o’clock, for example, every single scene must be in the box so that nothing has to be re-produced. Of course, this requires absolute professionals as models, not amateurs. Therefore, many production companies, but also music labels turn to model agencies to get professional actors for music videos.

As soon as the lights go on, the cameraman calls “Action”, it starts. Now every movement must fit, emotions, facial expressions and gestures. Everything must play together, in addition still the musician and naturally sometimes also the band. All these facial expressions and emotions must harmonize and fit together. The model must also have a cheerful charisma and positive energy. As a model agency, we take care of all this for your music video production.

Travel planning and management for music videos

Before you ask now, do I have to take care of hotels, flights, trains and taxis? No, of course as management we also take care of all connections to production, there and back. So that you can fully concentrate on your music video production as just described. As a model agency we book the right tickets and make sure that our models are ideally already on site the day before, so that the next day from styling to the mask everything is in place. This means that you don’t lose any time and you can be sure that the quality of your end product is completely right.

Example: Luisa in the music video for “Designer”

That’s it – Successful model casting in Cologne

Catwalk. Posing. Recall. On Sunday the big, open Cocaine Models model casting took place in Cologne. The team was highly motivated, the location casting-fairly up-behaved and the demand for model applicants enormous. Michelle has captured the formative impressions for you and summarized them briefly.

Casting start – Large rush in the Mediapark

Sunday morning 12 o’clock – the gates of our Cocaine Models agency open. Numerous model applicants have already gathered outside the door. The line at the reception is getting longer by the minute. Each applicant registers on a list and receives a number. Time passes and there is a certain tension in the air. Our Polaroid assistant Celia takes care of the Polaroid photos, which are taken before the jury’s assessment. The model applicants observe the competition or give each other the last tips for a perfect appearance. Meanwhile, our social media representative Hanna Jung is working diligently on interesting “Behind-the Szenes” shots.
First impressions count: Models in casting

The jury’s eyes wander curiously to the door of the casting room. Every new face is carefully received. The model candidates try to convince the jurors of their personality, their experiences and a short test walk. Critical glances eye every step and every movement. Our Cocaine Models jury, consisting of model-booker Regina Steinpress, model-booker Marcel Matt, photographer Oliver Rudolph and two of our agency models as guest jurors, are busy taking notes. Thanks to years of experience in the modeling business, our team always agrees quickly which candidates have a chance of being recalled.

The Recall – the second round of interviews

The number of model applicants shrinks from 54 to 25 candidates in round 2, the “recall”. The selection is difficult: Many talented young models fight for a place in the Cocaine Models Model file. In the recall, the chosen one is felt closer to the tooth, or rather to the shoe. The candidates prove themselves to the direct competition in small groups. They show their catwalk style, as well as different posing styles according to photographer’s instructions. Especially the challenge “dynamic posing” shows which of the model candidates have a solid self-confidence: A jump. A twist. YES the girls also on high heels! The view is directed towards the camera. After a short expert consultation, each model receives direct and constructive feedback.

The jury’s verdict

Congratulations: We welcome 16 new faces to our agency! Besides six new male models, 10 new female models adorn our model portfolio. We are enthusiastic and proudly welcome our new agency. SAY HELLO! After 7 pm we deserve some rest and toast to a successful casting day. To our team, to our models, to Cocaine models!

Our Kate was allowed to model for her last job for iCrush. You wonder who iCrush is? They sell great jewelry for women who prefer more delicate and understated accessories. Incidentally, the small chains, earrings and bracelets are also very good as a gift! Kate’s jewelry was outstanding and the pictures were photographed outdoors in natural light to match the jewelry. A small video was even shot with the same!

Flower Power – Johanna V. for the British brand Flavr!

Johanna V. is one of our experienced models, who was already able to do some great jobs! There are always exciting brands here <! – more ->. The last time it was for the British brand Flavr, which turned every phone into a beautiful accessory. Nowadays, you can hardly leave the house without having your smartphone with you. Of course the protection should not be missing. But Flavr is also known for his great flower prints on their cases – that brings the spring back! Johanna V. herself was enthusiastic about the many colorful mobile phone covers. What a great prerequisite for a shoot!

The hours before the job: Preparing for the shoot with Flavr

Shooting is not the same shoot, because almost no job is like the other. Some are more elaborate, with a large set, extra make-up artists, stylists and photographic assistants. The others are smaller, where you do not need an extra set and the model can make itself ready. What exactly does that mean? The focus of such shootings is more on presenting the products in everyday life and leaving the models as natural as possible. Johanna V. had a requirement how she should get to the job. It was said she needed a subtle make-up and freshly washed hair. In addition a few own outfits to change, so that a little variety in the pictures comes. What was particularly important for the shoot, were her fingernails, as they would of course be in focus with the phone cases. Well-groomed hands for such a job are the nuts and bolts!

Flower Power! Johanna V. at the social media shoot for Flavr

For the British brand Flavr channels like Instagram are obviously very important. If you look at her profile, you can see that her feed is completely true to her phone case full of flower power. One might think that spring is already very close to us!

Besonderes Posing beim Job? Alltagssitautionen gewünscht!

Das Posing bei dem Job für Flavr war natürlich relativ vorgegeben. Da das Produkt im Mittelpunkt stehen soll, spielte man Alltagssituation mit dem Handy in der schönen Flavr Hülle nach. Selfies, Telefonate oder SMS schreiben. Es war wichtig alles so authenthisch wie möglich darzustellen.

So einfach kann Posing sein: Authentisch ein Selfie machen!

Hier noch ein Beispiel wie ein Posing für das Produkt aussehen kann. Auch wenn es für Johanna V. ein kleinerer Job war, war sie von Anfang bis Ende motiviert. Ob es wohl auch an den bunten Handyhüllen lag?
