Popcorn. Cold say same about models. Your a big girl. Deal with it. If you don't have a thick skin modelling isn't for you.

Whilst a reply, even to say no thanks, would be considered a courtesy, the general concensus seems to be that if you hear nothing, take it as a no.

Could I ask, are they casting calls you fit for and when you are applying what it it you say?
Enhanced in post production, but not working to a level of filmed with inserts :D

My general rule is, if I don't get a reply from a model, then I was not fit for the casting. If I don't respond to a model who has applied for my casting, then she was not what I was looking for. I kinda thought that was the accepted norm - without being rude.

They are only going to consider you if you are suitable - not just because you are interested. Suitable means through their not your eyes.

Models who are suitable for castings may get a reply even if it is to say no. But nothing is ever guaranteed.

If you are applying for castings and not getting responses - then put up your own castings - at least you will know the person applying is interested even if they are not suitable.


If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Sometimes photographers get inundated with such a vast amount of replies it is impossible to message everyone back individually to let them know that they haven't got it. I have been modelling for years now (only just recently on purestorm) and it's always the case if you don't hear you were unsuccessful. It's not rude. Just practical.

If someone had taken the trouble to read and apply for a casting call I'd placed, I would definitely reply.

If they hadn't taken the trouble to read it properly, and didn't fit the requirements then I probably wouldn't feel too bad about ignoring their message.

That said... I very rarely post casting calls.
