Modeling Agency

A modeling agency is a company that earns profits from contracts between advertising agencies or designers and the models they hire to market their products or services. Such an agency is the ‘middle-men’ in this case which earns from commissions from both the contracting agency and the model. Average percentage for a good agency is between 10% ~ 40% of the contract. It is interesting to note that this earning is ‘both ways’, from the person being hired and from the agency hiring him.

A modeling agency seeks to maximize its profits by bidding for the highest price of the contract. This means the availability of top notch quality models. In turn, this translates into investment in them being pitched for hiring. An agency invests in the models to increase their talent and skills.

Modeling agencies basically represent the models to the hiring contractor and are responsible for keeping track of the necessary bookings, billings and such things. By taking care of the nitty gritty details, the agencies allow the models to focus on their own job instead of on the financial perspective. Finally, they are the ones who pay the models for their work time. Interestingly, the contract is between the modeling agency and the hiring agency and the payments are made to the hiring agency, not to the models directly. The modeling agencies payout the models from the payment received minus their own commission from the contract.

Scams are widespread in the modeling industry with many agencies preferring dishonest business practices. A dishonest agency mostly demands of models to commit high commission percentages or pressurizes them to give up some of their rights or they might pretend that they are doing business when in actuality, they probably only offer courses to aspiring models. In the US, the Better Business Bureaus deal with complaints lodged against fraudulent agencies practicing unfair business practices.

Legitimate agencies should have proper knowledge of the market and should honestly evaluate its models for hiring.

Ways for Beginning Actors

1. Join Acting School: Just as Dana Bashor joined acting school in order to learn the acting techniques, it is necessary for all aspiring actors to do the same and master it thoroughly. You can either join a class or work with a private tutor and learn different acting techniques including relaxation, sensory exercises and their applications in scene study and monologues.

2. Read A Lot: The more you read drama history, plays, theory and criticism, the better you will be able to understand pace, style and how to deconstruct a scene.

3. Learn From Actors: You can learn more from watching successful actors rather than from teachers, talent agents or casting associates who have nothing much to offer. Career studios are only money making machines and have very little to offer by way of acting techniques. It is best to avoid them.

4. Get A BFA Degree: Dana Bashor started off with drama in theaters and that is the best way to learn acting. You should pursue a BFA degree and apply for the best drama programs. You will learn acting techniques, drama theory and history. Casting directors and agencies are always on the lookout for actors who have intensive training and fine art degrees from the top programs. The BFA degree will also open up more avenues such as teaching, drama therapy and development, which can be as creative, remunerative and fulfilling as performing.

5. See Whatever You Can: The more you see start-up theaters, performances at Broadway, documentaries, short films, feature films, or whatever is successful at the Box Office, the better will be your critical eye. It is only by watching others that you will be able to improve your acting techniques. The other tips for getting into the film industry are the following: get a professional resume and your picture; attend as many interviews as possible, but choose the agents carefully; attend every audition that your agent fixes up for you; always consider failure as a stepping stone to success and don’t be afraid of it; and read the biographies of successful actors like Dana Bashor and see how they made it to the top of the entertainment industry.

Ways be a Celebrity

First of all make sure to have enough friends on my space, twitter and facebook because it would be easier to become famous when some people are already familiar with you. Try to make friends from all over the world regardless of race. But don’t make fake friends just for the numbers… it is better to have 10 people on twitter that interested in you than 100 contacts on your list that you don’t even know. Just make sure they speak and write English, that is it.

Now we have some friends online. So what do we do next? As any of the world known celebrities we have to make you own website… This will be a place where people can find us easily and appreciate our talent. What talent you might ask? That is up to you my friends. Everybody can do something better other people. For example, being a good story writer, poem creator, film producer, or know something other people don’t know and advise them that. There are many things we can do other than anyone else… We just have to open it for ourselves and having your own website is a good way to express something that you are really good at.

Naming your spot on the web is the main thing in becoming a star. A few suggestions: don’t make names from your own like James Gordon dot com or Michael Welsh dot org. No one cares about that because you are not famous yet. So why now to make something significant like Magicwizard dot com or good writer dot com… something creative and unique that nobody has.

Remember, to be a celebrity people have to get others attention which means the whole world need to appreciate what you can do. Your own website and internet in general is a perfect place where you can reach millions.

Steps of Movie Making

In order to provide you with less than three hours of entertainment, movie makers toil for years and spend millions. Once completed, a movie could provide enjoyment to millions and it also has the potential to earn millions for its producer. It is interesting to look at how a movie is being made as it is a long process.

There are a few different stages that are involved in making a movie. The first step involves a lot of planning because the production has to be prepared. This is typically done by the director and the producer of the film. The producer is the one that invests the money into the movie, and the director is the one that gets the movie started.

In order for a movie to be made, the director must have an idea of a story that he or she would like to see on film. Once a story has been chosen, then the screenplay is written. The screenplay is written much like you would see in any other play that you would read. This involves all of the characters, what they should say, and what they should do. Once the screenplay is written, then the director begins to audition various actors and actresses in order to play the different roles in the movie.

After hiring the actors to play the different characters, the director then finds locations that can be used as the scenes in the movie. Some of the scenes of a film are shot in a studio, while others are at various different locations.

Once the locations have been found, then the filming of the movie can take place. There are numerous different people that are involved in making the movie at this point. This is when cinematographers, makeup artists, people to provide transportation, as well as many other people become involved.

Shooting a film can take anywhere from just a few months to years depending on the length of the film. Once the movie has been recorded, the director will have the movie on film.

Of course, when movies are made, they incorporate more scenes than what actually ends up in the movie that you see. It is the editor’s job to cut out the scenes of the movie that are not needed.

The sounds for the movie are not recorded at the same time that the movie is recorded. This is done later on in a studio once the film has been edited. The director then has to view the movie to ensure that his visions were properly played out on the screen.

If the director and the producer are both content with the outcome of the movie, then there are a specific number of copies that are made and sent to different companies for screening.
