casting process

Not everyone gets chosen for the job

You see yourself as the best ambassador for a certain brand. And your friends have been telling you for so long how charming your look is, compared to this or that diva always making commercials for that one luxury brand.

So you sign up at a casting agency. Great, but having the right looks and sizes doesn't always cut it. You need that right attitude and extra pizzazz, flair and elegance. Eventually you get invited to a casting and the director is full of praise about you. But in the end you don't get the role, because the director is not the decision-maker. How does this work exactly?
