Agencies & Agents - How do I work through BCC?

As Agency or Agent, or aspiring one, you can work through BC.C by uploading your Models and/or by searching for new ones.

1) To upload your Models: create new BC.C Model profile for each Model of yours by adding:

- one cover photo -> in the “Cover” area (this pic is really important, because this one will appear in the Search lists. Don’t forget it);

- portfolio images -> in the “Book” area;

- digitals -> in the “Polaroid” area;

- video -> in the “Video” area;

- data and specs -> in the “More” area;

- the availability field -> switch the upper right button of the Model’s profile from “Not Available” (red colored button) to “Available” (green colored button).

Remember to update your Models profiles and eventually change the availability field as “Available” or “Not Available”, based on your Models’ calendar commitments.

2) To do some Models scouting: search for new talents through BC.C registered Models. You can filter your search based on specific criteria, if you want to scout Models with particular features. You can also search without any specific filters applied, if you are searching for Models with no particular characteristics. Read below to see how to make your BC.C Model searches.

To “Search”

Go to the “Search” area and select all the required filters, which are:

1. Gender -> Men Models or Women Models;

2. Current Location -> where the model is located at the present moment. This field is maintained by the responsible party of the Model profile (responsible parties include Agency or Agent, if the Model is represented, the Model himself/herself, if he/she is a BookingCasting Model); 3. Measurement Status -> Verified or Not Verified. These choices differentiate between Model’s measurements that are reliable or not reliable.

Confirm the obligatory fields just mentioned.

The following page after required fields permits you to select also the fields that apply to your project that you prefer but are not necessary to perform a search. Here you can make your search more specific by adding choices from non-required fields. You can confirm your search (based on the obligatory fields only) by clicking on “View Models”; otherwise, add new filters and then click “Apply filters” and repeat “View Models”. A list of Model’s profiles will be displayed based on the filters you added.

Remember: if you are not satisfied with your research results, you can refine it by adding, changing or deleting your filters. You can also delete all the non-required filters by clicking on the “Reset” button. Please keep in mind that, the more narrow you make your search, the more limited your results.  If you are not finding what you are looking for remove some non-required filters and your list of available Models will increase.

The Results: Models Profiles

The result of your search will provide a list of Models according to the filters you applied. Now you can scroll through the results and:

- Like the profiles by clicking the “Like” button;

- Add any profiles to your “Favorites” area by clicking the “Favorite” button. Upon doing this your candidates in this section will be saved for future engagement and/or give you the ability to create a package to send to another party (just click on “Share” to send one, some or all of your favorite Models via email);

- Open a single profile by clicking on the “View profile” button for any particular Model in the list of results.

How do I contact/engage the Model?

“Booking Info” button

Do you want to contact a Model or acquire more information about him/her? Open his/her profile by clicking on the “View profile” button, then click “Booking info”. At this point, a box will appear showing you:

- the name of the Model and, if applicable, by whom he/she is represented which can be under the following categories:

1) Agency

2) Agent

3) BookingCasting

- the No Agency Fee (NAF) Code to enjoy the NAF Discount;

- fields to specify, if you want, dates and type of the job;

- field box to write a message and share more info related to the project and/or to request further information about your chosen Model.

Press “Send”. The message will be sent to:

a) his/her Agency, if the Model has one;

b) his/her Agent, if the Model has one;

c) to BookingCasting, in case of a BookingCasting Model. You will receive in your mail box the message you sent via BC.C as well as the addressee of the mail (the Agency, the Agent or BookingCasting).

Wait for an answer of the Agency/the Agent/BookingCasting: now you can start your professional conversation and come to a final agreement.

Note: BC.C will not be included in these correspondences, and will not be privy to any confidential or contractual information.

The “Favorite” Models: As we mentioned before, BC.C gives you the opportunity to have a special section in the website dedicated to your favorite Models: you can add any Model to the “Favorite” section by clicking on the “Favorite” button that appears next to each Model’s profile in the list of your search results. If you click on the “Favorite” area in the menu, you will find all the Models that you marked as “favorite”.

In this page, you can select as many profiles as you want and forward them via email: how? Click on the “Forward” button of any Model or multiple Models that you would like to share (the button is next to the photo of each Model’s profile of the “Favorite” list).

When you have chosen the profile to forward, click the “Forward” button on the top of the Favorite list: this button also displays you the number of selected profiles. At this point, a box will appear in which you will have to fill the addressee (required field); the subject is already present by default, but it is changeable. This field box is not a required field. Now you can send your message: you and the addressee will both receive a copy of it, including the Model profiles of your “Forwarded” Model/Models.

Model Measurement Status

BC.C provides a service that is very varied and specific at once: every BC.C user can search for its perfect Model basing on every business exigency, thanks to the “Search” filters.            

A BC.C special filter is the Model Measurement Status, which corresponds to the “Measurements” field. 

This one, gives another important possibility to widen up or narrow the research with two selectable options: “Verified” Models, with accurate measurements, and “Not Verified” ones, with pending measurements.

Remember that in the first filtering shift of the research, this filter is obligatory, and in the second one is facultative. It means that in the first filtering page, the three field of “Gender, “Current Location” and “Measurements” reports a red asterisk that notifies they are obligatory. In the following page, that is the second filtering page, “Gender” and “Current Location” filters maintain their red star, but the “Measurements” option becomes facultative.

That’s why, in this second filtering shift, you can erase the filter or select both “Verified” and “Not Verified” options: in this way, your research will show you both Verified and Not Verified Models.

>> Please note that Models who belong to Agencies are naturally Verified. Models represented by Agents or by BookingCasting have not necessarily reliable measurements; it depends on the fact that they have or have not not been verified by a BC.C Agency partner or by BC.C staff professional.

Agencies & Agents - Who are “Verified” and “Not Verified” Models?

BC.C differentiates between “Verified” and “Not Verified” Models: BC.C wants to inform you of those Models measurements that are reliable, and those that may not be. “Reliable” measurements are measurements that have been checked by BC.C recognized institutions which include:

- BC.C staff in the two headquarters located in New York and Milan;

- BC.C Model Agency partners (visible on the “Advertising” page).

Those entities take full responsibility for the Verification of their Models: if a Not Verified Model comes to be verified by a BC.C Agency partner, the Agency have to communicate it to bcc@bookingcasting.com by sending an official email to BC.C.

The Verification Status is clearly reported on each Model’s profile with a “Verified” or “Not Verified” symbol.

In this way, BC.C guarantees:

- safety to the BC.C users that need to search models with accurate measurements;

- the widest range of Models able to be selected by users that do not depend on accurate measurements.

>> Please, note that Agency-represented Models, results necessarily as “Verified”: Models that are Agent or BookingCasting represented, can be Verified or not, independently of the fact they are professional Models or aspiring ones.

Agencies & Agents - Do I have to pay BC.C?

BC.C is a, totally free of charge, online platform.

BC.C guarantees to its Clients a No Agency Fee (NAF) discount which is a BC.C exclusive asset, compared what the traditional fashion business offers.

Agencies and Agents compensate for this discount by having the ability to represent more Models on an international level simultaneously. As well as acquiring more Clients on a global scale, expanding the range of business opportunities, collaborations, and maximizing your ability to have your Models booked.

BC.C suggests you to get the “All Around” system, a management software that absorbs your professional business website and creates a well-organized and simple approach to your daily work. It includes: business calendar with castings and jobs, online Models books and accounting resources. All this neatly organized and filed in your All Around.

Getting the All Around system means a simpler daily working life: your Agency or Agent activity will be easier and well-organized. But there is more.

Also your BookingCasting experience will be smarter: All Around links automatically to your BC.C account. In this way, every photo update of your Models, every casting or job-day that you manage on your All Around for your daily Agency or Agent activity, will be automatically communicated to your BC.C activity.

(e.g.: if you report your Model as “Not available” in your All Around, this information will be communicated immediately to your BC.C profile).
