Here are a few fun YouTube facts, taken from the YouTube statistics web page:
-More than 1 billion users visit YouTube each month
-Over 6 billion hours of video are watched on YouTube each month – that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth
—80% of YouTube traffic comes from outside the US
—According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network
—YouTube is available on hundreds of millions of mobile devices.
The widespread availability of mobile devices makes consuming video content easy and popular. Video should be an integral part of any business’s marketing plan.
Young ladies and gentlemen wanting to work in the modelling industry would work with professional photographers to produce a book of quality images they would show to potential clients. I believe that video is going to be a necessary component of a model’s portfolio. Leading model management companies, such a Premier Model Management from London, are using video to showcase their modelling talent.
With the increasing demand for video content, there are going to be more and more opportunities for models. And I’m sure the casting directors would like to see how the models look on video beforehand. After all, actors have showreels and the purpose of a model’s portfolio is to show potential clients how the model looks in photographs.
Hervé took care of the photography aspect and I was behind the video camera. I found it was much easier to split the photography and video duties than try to do both at the same time.
