Video Girls: How You Become a Vixen!
Become a Video Vixen
So you want to be a video girl? Well if you are planning on staying in your city you could do model work for the local clubs, local artists in your area, or become a go-go girl. This is all fine in the beginning because you want to have some work on your resume. The key is to be very friendly and socialize with men, and I know we can be dogs! But trust me, you will have to be the one that demands respect and still be accessible.
Another alternative is to go to the big cities like Miami, Atlanta, New York, or L.A. You will have to make connections with other models. Hang out at the parties where the rappers, video producers, and who ever else you can find of importance and work yourself in. While you are doing this I would still follow the guidelines at the top, so when you do meet people they will take you serious.
With the Internet and Reality TV it is more prevalent to use seductiveness to get these jobs these days. Social networking is a great tool to get peoples attention, you would definitely want to have pages on sites like Model Mayhem and PhloBuzz. These sites have people regularly looking for models and you can build your resume fairly quick if you have the right look. I’ve seen a lot of women tweeting provocative tweets to get followers attention and create a buzz. You also would want to become cool with different musicians in your area and via social networking just to let them know you are available. Plenty of Artist are doing videos that don’t get shown mainstream. Also, YouTube is a great way to show off your dancing and acting skills. I know of a group called the Twirk Girls who have been making a name from shaking their “moneymaker” for the camera on youtube.
You do not necessarily have to have a “phatty” or big breast to be a video vixen. What you do need to do is figure out what your strong features are and focus in on them. Like if you have sexy lips use that to your advantage in your shots. With that said you do want to stay in shape though, although skinny doesn’t matter, fat does. Sorry it’s just the nature of the business. Luckily nowadays you don’t have to be a toothpick because thick is “in” if you are proportioned.
On another note, if you are not born with enhanced features no problem. All one has to do now is go and get some extreme plastic surgery and enlarge their assets. The bigger your assets the more fame is sure to come your way. Plastic surgeons once had a conscience but now it is all about the money. If you have access to cash, you can get just about any surgery your heart imagines. If you can't find a surgeon to do it in the United States, well there's always another country where you can probably get the procedure at a discount.
If you are lucky enough to land a spot on a major video or venue you want to keep a level head. Always be looking for the next opportunity and keep a good name. There are millions of girls who will want to be in your shoes and they will do anything to get it. Try your best to stay in the media, remember, there is no such thing as bad media. Try not to have your name ran through the mud by to many of the celebrities this can come back to haunt you. Most importantly, remember to invest the money you do make, these type of gigs do not last forever, but you can have a hell of a run!
