What Kinds Of Individuals Are We Looking For?
A question we run into quite often is -
Who can be a Model?
The answer is – Almost Anybody. You do not have
to be beautiful, or tall, or slim – to find work as a
model, or in Motion Pictures or Television. Models are
used in commercials, actors and actresses in the movies,
or television. If you look at all the people who appear
in commercials on TV, or in sitcoms or the movies, then
you do not need us to tell you that not all models or
entertainers who appear on television or the silver
screen are Supermodel-types or GQ-Men. Indeed the tall,
leggy and extremely slender or brazenly blonde, or the
tall-dark-and-handsome-by-Armani image that is conjured
up for many people whenever they think – “Model”, or
“Hollywood Star” – is applicable to a very small
percentage of all the models who appear in commercials,
or entertainers who work in Hollywood.
That willowy Screen-Beautiful look is certainly popular
– if a model were to work in the high fashion world of catwalks and
runways in New York,
Paris and Milan, or play Beach Bunny on the sets of
Baywatch. And being photogenic and beautiful and
glamorous rarely hurts a person’s chances.
But it is not mandatory. Distinctive personality or
character, excellent work ethics, professionalism,
dedication to the project at hand, love of the work and
devotion to the industry, a single-minded drive and
determination to succeed – are far more important.
Ability to work well with make-up, be camera-friendly
and hold one’s poise are also crucial. Ultimately,
models are not used for their own beauty or even
character, but to create an impression or image, to
establish an association, and most importantly – to sell
a product. Actors and actresses are used to create
movies and entertainment, to make real a make-believe
for the viewers who pay to see it – who want to embrace
a little fantasy into their lives, and also see a little
part of their own lives in their fantasies.
The kinds of models and entertainers we – ergo, our
customers – seek, vary widely – all ages, genders, sizes
and shapes – from young women and men in perfect
physical condition for the more traditional fashion
shows and glamour-oriented modeling situations – all the
way to models for plus-size or maternity clothing,
babies, children – boys and girls of all ages, more
mature ladies and gentlemen, housewives, office-goers
and pets – for any kind of product, service or
Other than models, we of course also market
actors/actresses, entertainers and performance artists
of every stripe – generally to the retail entertainment
and the motion picture-entertainment production
industries. Our representation services are also
available to other types of entertainers – such as
comedians, magicians and even clowns.
In addition, we handle professional speakers to
corporate training departments or executive retreats,
sports personalities and other celebrities to
organizations or private groups requiring them.

Are All Applicants Who Want To Be On The Model- Accepted?
No. But it should be noted that all applicants are
given fair consideration.
Please note that we cannot accept every applicant who
comes to us. We are, of course, selective. Upon
reviewing an applicant’s data, if we decide that we are
not in a position to be of service to their careers – it
is our prerogative to request the applicant to pursue
opportunities other than through our organization.
This does not imply in any way that such a candidate is
not fit or suitably talented. It just means that – in
our judgment: and to the best of our knowledge and
belief – they would not be optimally benefited by the
services our organization might be able to provide to
them at this time.
Please note that we are very discreet. If it is decided
that an applicant will not be a part of our talent
family at this time, for any reason, all data from that
application is purged from our system.
Information Privacy Notice
No information about or from any application is ever
sold to, or shared with, any third party (unless of
course it is pertinent information provided in the
course of trying to get work for a client). All
information we receive from either Talent (existing or
prospective) or Talent-Users is always treated as
completely confidential. If we do not use it for the
purpose for which it was provided to us in the first
place – we destroy the information, to protect the
privacy and privilege of all parties concerned.
How Does It All Work?
The applicants we do accept become members of the Vip Management
As the Agents of the
talent, we represent the best interests of the talent,
including their security interests. Before we provide
any (non-public) information on any of our talent – to
any interested customer contacting us – we require the
interested party to provide us quite a bit of
information about their business, the purpose of their
contact and the specifics of the advertising campaign or
other project for which they will need the talent. Any
information they provide to us in this context is also
likewise treated as privileged information and kept
After we receive and review the information a customer
provides to us, and judge that the offer is suitable for
the talent that the customer has expressed an interest
in, we review the information with our client(s) – the
talent. If the talent expresses her or his interest, we
put the two parties together for initial consultations.
If all goes well, we proceed to work out the details and
put together the deal. If not, we try to recommend to
the prospective customers other talent (if any are
available) who might better meet the customer’s needs.
Once a deal is put together, we provide contracted legal
counsel for the talent – if this is required – and
continue to represent his or her interests for the
duration of the assignment or contract, including
participating in any contract renewal negotiations.
How Are Our Talent Paid?
Each client – model, entertainer or other talent – has
her or his own remuneration schedule. They can be paid
per billable hour, or by the day or week (plus
expenses), or on a per job basis. As their agents, we
negotiate the fee on a case by case basis. It is the
contractual obligation of our clients that they cannot
be contacted, employed or paid without our permission,
knowledge and participation. Depending on the terms of
our agreement with the talent, we receive a percentage
of what the talent is remunerated. That percentage
varies from one person to another, but is a fixed
lienable claim on the talent’s accrued income during the
period of our agreement.
Generally, our clients (the talent) are not paid
directly by the customer. We normally bill the
customer, and when the customer pays us, we pay the
It should be noted that we do not treat the talent as
our employees, but rather as independently contracting
referral buyers, who are responsible for their own taxes
and other statutory deductions.
