Casting Directors at GWCI are seeking non-union talent between the ages of 30 and 50 to portray upscale restaurant patrons this week in NYC.
“Sweetbitter” follows Tess who, shortly after arriving in New York City, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant. Swiftly introduced to the world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, she learns to navigate the chaotically alluring, yet punishing life she has stumbled upon.
The modeling industry has been around for many decades and up until recently, it was once thought it was only reserved for the very thin, stereo-typical supermodel that you once saw walking on the runway. In 2019, aspiring models, as well as industry professionals will see many ongoing changes that we’ve seen for the past few years in the way that auditions take place, the type of talent they are scouting and seeking for auditions, as well as how to get scouted by a talent agency.
The digital world has changed the face of models, literally. Many brands, including the world-famous Balmain, has turned to computer animated models for some of their campaigns. Sounds crazy right? Not from a business sense. A model that is signed with a major agency can garnish hundreds, if not thousands of dollars of commissioned pay for a brand, so companies looking to scale back as the decline of retail has effected the whole industry, cutting cost and using CGI models as the new faces could be the new norm. Will they stay longer than 2019 and into 2020 and beyond, who knows…. One thing for sure is that they won’t age a bit!
Becoming a model or actor easier than ever with Latitude Talent Studios New York. A legitimate talent marketing service for models and actors, we differ than a modeling agency, which only focuses on booking on a high commission and high splits. As a talent marketing firm, we help deliver industry professionals to our models and actors in hopes of gaining exposure and experience in the casting community.
In New York, you are competing with the crème de la crème of models. It is important as a new model or actor starting out to make sure they stand out from the rest.
A portfolio is essentially a resume for a model and showcases the work that you booked or showcases a variety of looks that proves that your photogenic enough to be able to get signed to an agent.
If you are looking to find open casting calls as a model it can be very difficult to be able to locate which ones are legitimate or which ones are essentially wasting your time. Latitude helps connect talent to a database of legitimate modeling agencies, and casting matches to provide them with the opportunity to get started as a model and actor.
Unlike an agency which requires their talent to be signed exclusively and collect a commission from every book job, Latitude allows our talent to be freelance and pick and choose castings and they wish to attend on their own terms.
Models and Actors should be on high alert. A number of seemingly educated talent are being subjected to a common check cashing process and Latitude Talent Studios is filing you in to avoid these illegitimate casting call jobs posted on popular websites.
A check scammer will prey on a model or actor on popular websites like Craigslist or Backpage. They try using a variety of excuses to explain why they’re willing to send a check for a large sum of money and expect only a small sum in return. The Business Bureau has released a warnings about a “check cashing”
You receive an email informing you that you’ve been offered a job as a model or actor. To get started, the message instructs you to reply and confirm your mailing address. After doing this, you will receive instructions and a check to cover your fee and modeling expenses such as clothing and transportation. … Your instructions tell you to deposit the check, subtract your fee and expenses and wire the rest back—but don’t do it.
The infamous “Nigerian email” was all too common back in the day: if you respond to the come-on, the Crown Prince Oil Minister or whoever the scammer’s pretending to be will usually send you a [bad] check for a large sum of money and ask you to wire back a small fraction of it.
The simplest and easiest way to protect yourself from check scams is to remember three rules. The first two rules are check-specific: when you deposit a check into your bank account, never assume the money is actually there until the bank tells you the check has cleared. And if you’re in business and accept checks as payment, never agree to accept a check for overpayment, nor hand over goods to the buyer until the check has cleared.
The third rule applies to everybody, whether you accept checks or not: never, ever wire funds or give pre-paid money cards to somebody you don’t know. Models be safe and take this advice!

In this article, we will debunk common things you might read online from either people who have never worked with an agency, or those who have wrong and outdated information.
Do modeling agencies charge money?
A modeling agency works to submit their actors and models to jobs they receive. In turn, the agent takes any where from 10-20% commission from their booked job. On top of that, the agency will typically take 20% from the casting client as well. As a model or actor looking for an agent, you will mostly need need to have a resume along with a portfolio in order to land an agent. Some agencies will cover your portfolio as well as test shoot and debit that from your future earning. This is very rare and only reserved “special talent” who are typically high fashion males 6’1 or taller and females 5’9 or taller.
Should you pay to become a model?
As a model or actor, you are an independent contractor meaning – you get no salary or hourly wage. In turn, its just like starting your own business. A model or actor always has to pay for their starting materials including comp cards, web profile etc. This is very common. A model or actor should never pay to land a job however.

Latitude Talent Studios is not a modeling agency, we are a marketing service for models and actors. While we work similar as we connect talent with casting calls, events and resources, we do not collect a commission from you in turn.
