A few years ago, models were griping that celebrity actors had taken over a significant amount of their opportunity through campaigns, endorsements, and magazine covers. Like any industry professional with a will to survive, the modeling industry has launched itself full force into on camera work. Models are no longer just pretty faces and symmetrical features for a posed still camera (although, those in the industry would know they were always more than they appeared to the public anyway). Designers like Prada are blazing a new path for models (and maybe actors alike)!
Supermodels are taking on camera work seriously and bringing new life to campaigns like this one for Prada's Fall/Winter line. Famed photographer, Steven Meisel creats a somewhat Matrix-like chess game with Vanessa Axente, Magdalena Frackowiak, Madison Headrick, Elza Luijendijk, Iselin Steiro & Anne Vyalitsyna.
Knowing how to move for the on camera model and actor will be imperative to building a career. Years ago, actors were thrust into learning how to work the still camera and they opened a whole new income source. Will models hear the call and follow suit to reclaim their lost opportunities?
What can you do as a model or actor to learn the other side of the talent world and become more sought-after?
