Lights, camera, ACTION! – By Cynthia Baremans

selfieIt’s fridaaaaayy! Last weekend I went to the Old Biscuit Mill with some of my housemates, which was really nice! At this market they sell all kinds of food, so we had a delicious breakfast there. The rest of the weekend we relaxed and on Sunday I had another casting for PUMA. 

On Monday I had a meeting at the agency. There was an agency from Hamburg who is scouting for new models. There are more agencies from other countries who come here to scout. It was just a quick meeting, show her my book and she made a few pictures.

In the evening I got a call from my agency that I was booked for the new PUMA campaign!!! For Tuesday and Wednesday, I was sooooo excited!! I couldn’t believe I actually booked the job, during the casting there were so many models. I guess hard work pays off.

Life in Capetown – By Cynthia

Hello again! 

Last Friday we had such a fun night out in Cape Town, although I did need to recover for two days… And then it was Monday again! My Monday morning started dancing around in bikini during a commercial casting, just an ordinary day! Normally all the castings are in studios, inside, with a lot of people and I wait for a long time.. But on Tuesday I had a casting close to my house at a beautiful location: Clarendon guesthouse. Very comforting to wait around with a beautiful view.

A lucky number – By Cynthia

Hello again! My first full week in Cape Town has been really busy! Monday started with three castings. I’ll be talking a lot about castings in my blog, so let me explain what happens during these castings.
It depends for what it is, last week I had a lot of commercial castings. When you arrive at the casting you need to sign in with your name and then you get a number… And wait in line.
When your number is up, you go inside and you have to introduce yourself to the camera. You have to say your name, age and agency. Then the casting director will tell you what to do. Normally during a commercial casting you have to act. For example, last week I had a casting for KitKat (chocolate) and had to pretend I was on a rooftop with friends, having drinks and eating KitKat. I actually enjoy these castings, I like acting as well!photo
