Digital Composite Card
A composite card, also referred to as a “comp card” is a models or actors resume and includes 5 photos as well as stats, measurements and contact information. We provide our talent with a digital and printable comp card as part of our service. The digital composite card can also be emailed to casting directors, photographers or any industry professional through a talent’s profile in one easy step.
Public Casting Call aka Breakdown
A private casting is when a direct request from a client, casting director, production company, industry professional or breakdown is received by Latitude. Since we are not an agency, we do not collect a commission from talent if they book a project.
Public Casting Call Post aka Casting Match
A public casting is an ‘open to the public’ notice discovered through a local or national publication or website, available on your Latitude profile. We refer to these as “Casting Matches” which are both paid and nonpaid local opportunities for both modeling and acting.

Did you know a social media influencer has the same status as a fashion model in today’s environment?
When most people think of modeling, the first thing they think of is magazines, runway and print advertising. While that’s a major advertising outlet for companies which obviously feature models, becoming an Instagram influencer or social media celebrity can afford you the same opportunities as a model.
1.) Build your personal brand
In order to become an influencer, it is very important to build your personal brand. If you have a certain focus, desire and passion, let’s say fashion, it is important to build your Instagram or Facebook profile and post around this topic. Whatever your favorite stores are, or favorite outfits, feature them in your social media posts and be sure to tag the retail brands. This is a great way to get the attention of new and potential followers, as well as the brand themselves.
2.) Get followers
This is probably one of the most difficult things to do when building a personal brand, is to actually get followers that care about you and what you represent. Be sure to research and use a lot of hashtags in your Instagram post to get the attention of a potential audience. Be sure to post content often to keep your audience engaged.
