From plumbing to acting, model Terry has it all in hand…..check out how he got on on a two day filming assignment with Finish Dishwasher.
Commercial modelling brings with it a large range of unique briefs and model requirements, the latest commercial for Finish Dishwasher needed a male model who’s also a fully qualified plumber – not a problem for Models Direct!
Male model Terry successfully secured the two day filming assignment all thanks to his acting abilities and is plumbing qualifications.
Model fee: £500 “Last week I completed an assignment which Charlie helped me secure. It was for a commercial for Finish, advertising the new product line of dishwasher cleaners in the UK 🇬🇧 and in Germany 🇩🇪. I was playing an engineer who was inspecting the inside of a dishwasher and watching the cleaner at work as it produced a shiny clean wine glass. 🍷 I can’t wait to see the final edit to add some amazing shots to me show-reel and see myself on TV 📺 🤩 It was a pleasure to work with the whole production team from the runners, catering staff, producers, creative directors, wardrobe etc. So many people made the experience from start to finish a great one. Looking forward to more and more work with Models direct.”

Commercial Model Criteria
The criteria to be a commercial model is very different to that of a fashion model, Models Direct represents commercial models and talent and hopefully this blog will explain a few of the differences.
Commercial models are ‘real people’ who have a good look and often experienced in acting, singing, dancing or another talent, they are used to performing to an audience or portraying a different character. The criteria for commercial models is very varied, clients often require a wide diversity in model looks, size, ethnicity, age and location depending on the product or service they are promoting.
Commercial models are used in promoting everyday products, they are appealing to the majority, so the models sourced need to be relatable to the consumer.
How much do Commercial Models earn??
Earnings can vary depending on many factors, models experience, length of assignment and client budget. A good agent will negotiate the best rate for you – commercial models can expect to earn anything from £150 to £1000’s!
