Introduction video for castings, clients and agencies
The concept of an “introduction video” always refers to a short video of yourself, which is often created at the request of your model agent. The main goal is to introduce yourself so that potential clients can quickly and easily get a first impression of you. In this video, you can showcase different aspects of your personality and skills, including your facial expressions, the way you speak and your movements.
Create video 1-2-3
Depending on the type of assignments or jobs you are being considered for, the structure of these videos may vary. Generally, you will start with an introduction of yourself by stating your name, mentioning your height and your affiliation with a modeling agency. In some cases, you will be expected to strike poses or present a short run for the client in just a few seconds. You may also be asked to dance or speak a set phrase for an e-casting.
Introduction video: Self-introduction, what does it involve?
You usually start with a self-introduction, including your name, height and agency.
- Place of residence
- Model agency
- Special hobbies (sport, music, etc.)
- Reference jobs (e.g. if you have already been to Paris Fashion Week )

Professional videos? Just use your smartphone
A big advantage of creating these videos is that you can usually do it easily with your smartphone. You can simply position your smartphone on a table or cupboard or even ask a friend to help you record the video. With short introduction videos, the focus is on quick delivery(asap) and less emphasis is placed on using a high-quality camera or perfect lighting. The spontaneity and authenticity of your performance are often more important than technical perfection.
