How to prepare an acting skit

November 21, 2017
how to prepare acting skit

When submitting for an acting casting there are many factors to be aware off, despite how well practiced you may be. Dinbog wants to give you a series of tips to keep in mind to help you with any and all acting auditions:

Imagine this: While practicing your monologues or skits remember to imagine you are in front of an audience and most importantly the directors. Keep in mind the rush of sensations that you will be feeling (nerves, sweats, etc.).

– Prepare a text: Sometimes casting directors will send you their skit directly. Even if this is the case it is best to still be prepared with two monologues, one comedic and once dramatic, to demonstrate your dynamic skills.

Vocalize: Make sure you are speaking with clear diction and a load pitch. Warm up your vocal cords before the audition.

Wear clothes that makes you feel comfortable and confident: Remember the camera will catch everything. Make sure you have a clean face and if you wear makeup, that it is natural only highlighting your best features.

–  Mental Strength: Mentally prepare yourself for the possibility of rejection. If they do not pick you it may only be because they are not searching for a character like yours, so do not give up.

– Relax: This is easier said than done. Try to go as relaxed as possible. There will always be nerves before a big audition, but do not focus on your natural response simply focus on yourself and your goals. Calm down and concentrate.

After: Do not forget to treat yourself! Whether it went well or it was not what you expected, you should still celebrate your hard work. Remember to always take note of what could be improved on for next time, and simply keep on keeping on.

Mistakes will come with each casting, but it important to stay optimistic and use these mistakes as opportunities for improvement.

We would like to give you a series of tips on how to start pursuing a career as a model.

STAY UP TO DATE:

Our first, and cheapest, recommendation is to become very familiar  with all kinds of fashion magazines.

Whenever you want to dedicate yourself to something professionally it is essential that you pursue something you are passionate about. A career in the world of fashion is definitely not a profession to pursue without passion, and therefore it essential use this drive to immerse yourself in as many fashion magazines and publications as possible: Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elite, fashion blogs etc. By studying these materials, you can both: stay up to date with current trends, and also observe how the best models in the business inspire and pose for their audiences.

Furthermore, it is equally as important that you follow all your favorite fashion connoisseurs and models on social media. Online platforms like dinbog allow you to follow their profiles and interact with all their pictures and portfolios.

THE PORTFOLIO

The portfolio is like a “cover letter” that a model has to submit when looking for a job. A portfolio consists of a variety of the best photographs that a model has had throughout his/her career.

A portfolio should display a varied selection of face, full body, close ups, of unique selection of looks.

Dinbog can help you organize and upload an online portfolio and resume with pictures and video, all in one place. We can help you showcase all your best work!

Our golden rule is to not become absent on any platform. In a world that is everyday becoming more and more competitive, it is essential to stay active on social media. Staying active on social media and dinbog allows casting directors to get to you know you better through yet another platform. We recommend highlighting any special talents and/or features you may have such as: tattoos, disabilities etc.

Agencies and brands use our advanced search engine to find models with very specific characteristics. The more detailed your profile, the easier you will be to find.

CONTACT MODELING AGENCIES

Tips on how to pose and look good in pictures

October 25, 2017
How to pose in pictures

Are you sick of feeling like you don’t look the most photogenic in your pictures? On dinbog, and in the talent industry in general, it is very important that our portfolios, or books, display our best possible pose in every picture. However, before you loose hope and give up on posing for pictures, you must know that being photogenic is not a divine gift that some people do and do not have. Those who have a claim to fame when it comes to posing in pictures, all have a common strategy and set of tricks they follow to achieve the best pose in every picture.

Being that we are very aware of the great importance that portfolios/books have to agencies and talent scouts, dinbog wants to give you some tips on how to achieve the most photogenic picture every time.

FACE

“The face is a reflection of the soul.” With more than 40 facial muscles, it is very easy for the face to convey many emotions and feelings with the expressions we have in our photos. Therefore, our top priority- although not always an easy one- must be to transmit positive emotions.

First tip: Rotate the head to roughly a 45-degree angle to depict your facial features in a multidimensional fashion. If we face directly to the camera, our asymmetrical features stand out creating an imbalance.

Furthermore, stars like Cara Delevingne and Emma Stone utilize a tactic called “squinching”, a mixture of two terms squinting the eyes and clenching the jaw. The objective is to further define the chin and relax the cheekbones for a natural look.

Finally, for a natural smile, we recommend pressing your tongue to the roof of your mouth and behind your top row of your teeth.

HAIR

If you have long enough hair (enough to play with it a bit) you can let it slightly fall over your face. Not only could this potentially help cover any blemishes, but also helps your look seem more mysterious and playful.

BODY

Like with the face, we also recommend to rotate the body slightly. By posing at this angle your body is outlined better, think “red carpet” style. Celebrities at these events often place a hand on the waist and their bodies are usually at an angle. If the photographer requires a front-facing pose, then we recommend to cross both legs, placing one foot in front of the other.

Do not forget to always maintain proper posture. This means to keep your back straight and shoulders slightly back, thus highlighting the chest and reducing any slouch in your figure.

Finally, an extremely important aspect of a pose are the arms and hands. Many often forget these noticeable feature and simply let them fall limp by their sides creating an awkward look. Also, it is important that you always maintain relaxed hands not tight, you could come off as seeming tense, or simply posed and unnatural. Flexing your hands and then relaxing them, or having something in them could be a good resource for models who find it difficult to pose their arms in a manner that does not seem forced.

By following our tips, the photographers directions, and your natural posing instinct you will surely be on your way to creating some amazing photographers that will increase your chances of finding professional success within dinbog.

The uses and advantages of hashtags in your posts

August 7, 2017

A Hashtag (#) is a tool that each day is being used more in social networks, being information classifiers, hashtags are very helpful when searching for topics of interest. When clicking on a hashtag it redirects you to the page where all the posts contain that same hashtag. In dinbog we also recommend you to use the hashtag to segment your posts, placing generic hashtags may invite more people to your profile, that way many others can get to know and follow you. Placing specific hashtags make your posts define you even better.

The amount of hashtags is important, one or two is more than enough to get the attention of your followers and others that are looking for information related to what you have posted. On the other hand, more than three hashtags can cause a negative effect and bore your followers.

Precision is another characteristic that needs to be taken into account when using this tool. It is not a good idea to use a hashtag using a bunch of letters and characters that no one will use. For example, to use #Model or #Runway, it is much better than to use #runwaymodelcolombiafashion. If your hashtag has more than one word, it is best to use capitals or lower case letters when needed. It will be easier to read #ColombiaFashion.

For our last recommendation, as always, use this tool wisely, don´t over use it because if it will lose its purpose: to make the content stand out.

So now you know, from now on make the most of this tool that we offer you and will make your posts be distinctive.
