Affinity Models invite to our National Tradeshow & Promotional Model Jobs


Affinity Models invite to our National Tradeshow & Promotional Model Jobs


INTRODUCTION

Because AFFINITY deals in such a high volume of work all over the
country, we prefer to communicate via email UNTIL we actually locate a
CASTING or CLIENTS that are interested in your pictures.Otherwise, our
phones would never stop ringing! 
Be sure to check your spam mail, as there is a high probability our email will end up there.
However, if you send questions that are
covered in this document or are covered in the
http://www.affinitytalent.com/requirements2.html they will be
deleted.We hope you understand...


If you follow the directions correctly, your final step will be
to wait for future job list announcements emails.We will not send you a
contract until we find you work! Please read on to follow the
directions. Please note this is not a guarantee of work or that the
clients are interested in your pictures.We will submit them to our
clients.

In the meantime, please join one of Affinity Agency's FREE Model &
Talent Job Lists. These email newsletters are sent out regularly to
inform models of jobs/castings/auditions in their area! Based
on the categories above, and after following directions below, please
ONLY submit to jobs for which we have categorized your pictures.
 

AUDITION AND BOOKING PROCESS.

We currently have 4 methods for you to learn about our NEW
Model Jobs. We strongly encourage you to use all of them so
thatif one method fails, we can reach you through the others.


Method 1:  SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY--Get a Free account with LACasting.com 
and CASTINGFRONTIER.com (absolutely free) so we can quickly submit your pix/resume
to casting directors. BE SURE YOU ARE GETTING ON THE ‘AFFINITM’ Models Account that Affinity Artists Agency has at LACasting.com

Method 2: ALL OVER USA--Get on our TOPICA Newsletter Jobs List (its absolutely
free...) This is the most important one to get on. Be sure to use Method 3 AND Method 4 if you are anywhere in the USA. (Topica is having problems, may be dormant now)

Method 3: ALL OVER USA--Get on one of our MSN,GOOGLE,MYSPACE State by State Model Groups
(optional, also absolutely free) Be sure to use Method 3 AND Method 4 if you are anywhere in the USA.

Method 4: ALL OVER USA--Get on our PROMO MODELS SOCIAL NETWORK site at http://promomodels.ning.com/   Also absolutely free). Be sure to put up your best pictures. If you start a profile with no pictures we will delete it.

Be sure to use Method 2, 3 AND Method 4 if you are anywhere in the USA.

*********************************************   

The internet has changed the model playing field
dramatically! Most casting directors have become hip to the fact that it
just MAKES MORE SENSE to SUBMIT PICTURES ELECTRONICALLY!
Because of this Affinity has made a decision to enhance our submission process by
utilizing large electronic web casting sites for the
entertainment industry. We may add more as they become available.

Of course, as always, joining these sites is NOT a requirement of
Affinity and is only optional. 

WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE ANOTHER AGENT/MANAGER?
Of course we realize you may already be listed with another agent. If
so, we don't wish to tread on that relationship.  

However, if you are registered with another manager as Theatrical,
or with a Commercial agent you may want to list with
Affinity as as your Tradeshow/Live Event/Modeling Agency


WHAT IF I'M AN INDEPENDENT ACTOR/MODEL/TALENT?
Or you may already be registered as an independent actor--
(If so, consider that while you may get
SOME castings, the MOST COVETED, HIGHEST LEVEL castings are reserved for
the licensed talent agencies registered on these same sites. So you may
be losing out on 'higher end' modeling jobs..
*********************************************    


METHOD 3: FOR ALLMODELS AROUND THE USA (including California)!!!
(for receiving information on model jobs)

WE have 3 types of links for you to sign up for:
1. PROMO MODEL SOCIAL NETWORK.
2. TOPICA LISTS
3. MULTIPLY LISTS

4. GOOGLE LISTS
5. SOME YAHOO LISTS.

...
Here are the lists:


1. PROMO MODEL SOCIAL NETWORK:
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT METHODS FOR STAYING IN TOUCH WITH THE AGENCY:

Affinity Models & Talent Agency has created the  Promo Models Social Network. This is another easy, free way to communicate quickly with the agency. Its not just for Promo Models. Its also for Fashion Models, Tradeshow Models and more.

The Promo Models Social Network provides you, the model/talent with the following free stuff:
  • a place to post your photos & videos for free (makes it easy to send your profile to castings/auditions!
  • a place to join Model Groups that are in your Area Code--so model jobs can be sent to you directly base on your location! Each group has its own direct Craigslist access.
  • a place to talk to other models & actors!
  • easy access to Craigslist jobs in your area through our RSS feeds!
  • a place to post/read about Special Events for Models!
  • active Twitter Feed about live promotional jobs!

You dont have to be a 'promo model' to join. Even if your rate is as high as $150 to $1000 per hour--its just another great way to keep your profile out there for the world to see!

Please take a look at the site at http://promomodels.ning.com  and then sign up (right side of page has a SIGN UP link.

Remember to use the ADD PHOTOS link so that you dont have a blank profile! Those who dont add pictures will be deleted.




TOPICA LISTS

When you find your list(s), simply send an email to THAT email address
and you will automatically be subscribed to THAT job list within 24

hours. Then simply wait for new jobs to arrive in your email. No
gimmicks, no fees, just another way to send you job info! (please
remember, sometimes there are LOTS of jobs, sometimes only a few in your
area...the only reason to be concerned about lack of job announcements
is if you CHANGE your email address--then you must request a new
subscription to the job list).


Also, IMPORTANT, if you sign on to more than one list, you may, at
times, received duplicate emails regarding the same jobs.

for receiving information about model and actor jobs!)

MULTIPLY,GOOGLE, PROMOMODEL SOCIAL NETWORK & SOME YAHOO MODEL JOB ANNOUNCEMENT LISTS.
(we'd like you on both the Topica and the following  lists.This way if one system goes down we have
another way of contacting you!)
BUT ALWAYS STAY ON THE TOPICA and http://www.promomodels.ning.com LISTS!

(this may lead to you seeing duplicate messages but we feel its worth it
because if one system goes down we can still contact you on the other
one. Remember TOPICA is the most important list!)
****************************************
We urge you to be on MORE THAN ONE GROUP
To get on our Yahoo, MULTIPLY, Google Groups do you have to subscribe and or get a free email at Yahoo, Multiply, Google?
Yes, you do...and its free and it doesnt hurt to have multiple free
email accounts, so why not??

Yes, it does require a little bit of effort on your part but we believe
it will increase your exposure exponentially...so please take the time
to do this if you can...

JUST JOIN THE GROUPS if you can!


The other reason is: sometimes one or another web group is inaccessible
and we may still need to get modeling and acting assignments out to you
quickly.

You may also be unaware that due to high demand from clients we have
created several ethnic and/or language oriented groups (i.e.
Asian,
Eurasian and Hispanic) so that we can quickly cast those talent on the
great many projects that request these talent types.
We also have new nationwide Tradeshow/Promotional Groups.

Additionally we have a Senior/Mature Group which we are utilizing for
our 40 and over talent (we realize that 40 is far from 'Senior' but we
want to get all our mature models into a group we can easily communicate
with.

(we'd like you on both the Topica and the following GOOGLE, YAHOO MODEL GROUPS lists.This way if one system goes down we have another way of contacting you!) BUT ALWAYS STAY ON THE TOPICA and PROMOMODELS.NING.COM LISTS!
(this may lead to you seeing duplicate messages but we feel its worth it
because if one systemgoes down we can still contact you on the other one. Remember TOPICA and PROMOMODELS.NING.COM are rthe most important list because we can get ourmessages out to everyone quickly!


We have listed the groups in the following order.
1. State by State.
2. American Promo/Tradeshow Talent
3. Ethnic Types
4. Mature
5. Canada Provinces



1. STATE BY STATE MODEL GROUPS:

(MULTIPLY, GOOGLE, & YAHOO will ask you to subscribe to their free
service in order to join the group. REMEMBER, ITS FREE!!! Click on the
links to become a member of the appropriate group!It cannot hurt you to

have additional email accounts with these services, it can only help you
expand your options!)

We'd like you on all groups but you really SHOULD get on PROMOMODELS.NING.com and www.TOPICA.com (listed above) at a minimum. (and remember if you join more than one group you may see our job lists in your email a few times. Try to roll
with this minor annoyance! ;0) )


Important info re: NEW Yahoo & Other Model Groups

BUSINESS GUIDELINES

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR CASTINGS:

In order to more efficiently process responses we urge you to use the

following guidelines. Failure to do so will result in deletion of the response.

Please respond to future job listings  by sending email  to info@affinitytalent.com
Please title your emails SUBJECT LINE with the JOB NAME, THE CITY, YOUR FULL NAME.(your city)


IMPORTANT:
Please send CLEAR pictures ONLY in .jpg or .jpg format,(all other formats will be deleted) no larger than 6 or 7 inches and no more than 80-100kb.
NO PIX OVER 100K! Pictures that take up over 100k or are
HUGE (filling the screen) or too small (under 2 inches) will be deleted.
CHECK THE SIZE of your pictures. 6 to 7 inches, not an eyeball filling the screen,
not a thumbnail size pic.

We don't accept .pdf, bmp, .tif, .gif, .art, MS WORD pictures. We dont accept WordPerfect docs. If you are on a MAC be sure your pics are compatible with a PC viewer.

Send clear head and/or full body shots that clearly show your physical and
facial features. This is NOT the place for Blurry or distorted photography.

We prefer FULL BODY as well as FACE shots.

No zipped pix (aol zips  multiple pix).
If you are on aol, please send one picture per message. Aol zips pix and we don't accept zips!

Tell us HOW RECENT THE PICS WERE TAKEN! Do not fall prey to the easy delusion
that you look the same as you did 5 years ago. Friends will tell you what you want to hear.
Do not submit pix that are more than 3 years old.

Do not submit pix that are a different hair color or significantly different from the way
you look RIGHT NOW.

Do not give a talent ID#  and tell us to search for your pictures at another site.
With over 300 emails received EACH DAY, the time involved to hunt for each model's pix
is prohibitive and we just cannot do it.Either provide a HOT LINK to the website and
PAGE where your pix are listed, or simply attach pix. Test your link to make sure it actually leads to your pictures/reel/resume

If it is a group shot, identify your position among the group. We prefer
pictures that feature YOU, not your associates.
You must identify how current your pictures are. Please be honest with
yourself and us.
If you are sending from aol, send picture one per email. Send only 1 email if on aol.

If you want us to see your pictures posted on another website, you MUST send
a FULL hot LINK to the site. We will not accept responses such as "here is
my talent ID # and just go to the website and find my pictures."

YOU must go to your own website, go to the page that contains your pictures, COPY the
BROWSER link and place it in your response email to AFFINITY. Additionally,
you must STILL attach one .jpg to the email even if you have a website. This
is so that AFFINITY can send your picture (not your webpage) to our clients.

When including your website link, you must include the FULL LINK. Example:

http://www.mywebsiteJaneSmith.com, NOT mywebsiteJaneSmith.com or
www.mywebsiteJaneSmith.com.

You must include your phone and cel phone as well if possible.
You must include your height, measurements and eye/hair color.

WHAT TO AVOID:

Please DO NOT:

  • DO NOT SEND emails which take up HUGE amounts of memory!!! Nothing over 100K!
  • Do NOT ask for more information on the jobs. We provide information that theclient provides.
  • Do NOT ask for clients identities. We do not reveal these until model/talent agree to work and client chooses them for auditions/castings/jobs.
  • Do NOT submit on jobs that clearly ask for a type that doesnt match your profile. This is not a game of chance in which you throw the dice and see what happens. If you submit on jobs for which the criteria are clearly different than your look, we will remove you from the list.
  • DO NOT send ONLY Links and no attachments. Please send links AND attachment


IF CASTING DIRECTORS ARENT CHOOSING YOU:
Please Do NOT ask why your pictures havent been chosen. If are not chosen on
10 or more jobs, reevaluate your look or your pictures or both. Are you misjudging your potential to

appear as a certain age range, body type, model type? Try submitting to more
appropriate castings. Or perhaps you need to update your pictures with a different look/attitude.


HOW TO RESPOND TO CASTINGS FROM AFFINITY:
Here is an EXAMPLE of an appropriate response:

SUBJECT: MICROSOFT TRADESHOW--SAN FRANCISCO, JANE SMITH (Berkeley)

(in body of email)
Jane Smith
Ph: 555-555-5555
cel: 444-444-4444

EMAIL BOUNCES ON HOTMAIL:

AFFINITY has found a solution for our talent on hotmail!Affinity recently asked our talent

using hotmail to suggest solutions to the bouncing email problem we've been having with hotmail.
Here are several hotmail solutions...

When implementing these suggestions remember that Affinity's email may
come from one of the following addresses:
affinitytalent@ca.rr.com
info@affinitytalent.com
info@affinityartists.com
rossataffinity@gmail.com


1.click on the OPTIONS tab on the top far right.
2. There will be another list on your left, click on CONTACTS.
After you are in contacts there is another option for a SAFE LIST.
There you can type in an address or domain that will never be blocked.

Another talent writes: Go to your BULK MAIL FOLDER. All you have to do
is click "this is not Junk Mail."
Or you can put Affinity on your favorites list.



Taken from Hotmail Help:

To ensure messages from specific e-mail addresses are not sent to your
Junk E-Mail folder, you can add them to your Safe List.
Gointo your hotmail account and click on the OPTIONS tab on the top
far right. Go to the Options page.

On the left side of the page, click Mail, and then click Junk E-Mail Protection.
Click Add Senders to Safe List.
Type an address or domain (a domain is the part of an e-mail address
that follows the @ sign) from which you always want to receive

messages, and then click Add.
Click OK.
Another talent offers a different solution.
1.- the person's hotmail account needs to be set
at the lowest security setting.  They can do this by going into the


OPTIONS menu.  This does not mean viruses will be able to get through, it just

means all the spam will.  As long as they don't sign up for alot of junk then
they should be alright.
2. In regards to the mail getting sent back.  If the persons mail box
is quite full it will send emails back even if they just sent you one.

Again they need to delete some of the junk in all of their folders to make
this happen.

2.  Enter the email address into the "Safe" email file,this will send
all future email from this address to the inbox..There you can put in

any email or domain and it will go to your email box.

You need to click on Options and then Contacts and then Safe List.

Since this is happening, can we please have a list from Affinity of
emails or a domain that you use and then we can keep them on our safe list.


One way to fix this problem is whan you go in your junk mail box check
the message from Affinity in the little box to the right. then click on
the "this is not junk mail" button up on top of the screen, then check

"add to safe list". All mail from that address will be delivered to
your regular mail box!
