It seems that a very common natural progression for models is to explore acting. They’re taking their ability to emote and express into further realms, opening up the possibilities, going out for indie film projects and music videos and just discovering human emotion in a completely different way. After all, the moving image is, in my opinion, a much more impactful media through which we, as humans, can relate and share experiences, and our industry is evolving accordingly. Visual marketing will never be the same again. It’s already happening.
Either way, our models are getting booked on really cool projects that I thought I’d start sharing more of. In this music video for “Robbers” by The 1975, our wild-haired, wild-eyed Chelsea Schuchman bleeds “coolness” and a certain je ne sais quoi. Pay attention to her acting chops…I swear, you’ll be impressed.
