Models, actors, musicians and other professional artists should be creating these short, 2-minute "portraits in motion" to promote themselves.

For years, models have shown potential clients their highly retouched portfolio or when the client asks, a very poor quality digital "Polaroid" snapped by a friend. Neither one shows the model as they really are.

Now, motion pictures (aka "films," "moving images" or the cheap-sounding "video") have the ability to show different angles, expressions, personality and features of a particular person. Beauty closeups, walking, jumping, laughing and other actions can be included, or not. The best part is retouching motion pictures, for now, is exclusive to the biggest budgeted Hollywood productions so you can be sure the model looks just as you see them.

We shot 20-year-old Austra Noelsson with 100% natural light one morning outside in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The shoot took about an hour and editing was about three hours. The music is a legally licensed track called "When I Close My Eyes" from Danish composer Ganga.

Hey Corey,
This type of model video of Astra should definitely replace
The usual retouched photo. Really shows the "true" model, too. Wonderfully progressive idea!

Love, Dad
