Modeling 101: Print and TV Modeling Jobs in the Philippines
1. Sharpen your acting chops!
Agencies don’t usually have a specific set of requirements when it comes to commercial models, even employing everyone from toddlers to grandparents. So all you really need to bring to the table is a sharp set of acting skills and a pleasing personality to match. If you apply for TV modeling jobs, a typical audition will require you to portray a wide range of emotions.
So how do you sharpen your acting skills? Getting an acting coach or taking classes may cost you some money, but they are surely worth the investment. However, if you choose to practice on your own, see to it that you have someone give an unbiased opinion on your acting. You can also choose to record yourself on camera to review your acting skills.
2. Get started
Before you head out to go-sees and auditions, you need to have your modeling set card ready. A modeling set card will serve as your passport to the industry.
