The American Mall Model Search / Scam?

Ro

Okay, let's get some facts straight. The AMMS is NOT a modeling agency. It's a competition to win a contract with a scouting and booking agency. Again, NOT a modeling agency. So those of you who say a legit company would not be asking you to pay for a portfolio, this isn't really the same situation. For a legitimate modeling agency, yes, do not give them the money if they ask for it. But that is not what AMMS is and should not be confused with it. Is it bad business to ask for the money so early in the competition? Yes. Should they have licensed photographers taking the photos? Hell...

The American Mall Model Search - California, Hollister / The first audition

Well I was surprised my brothers got called back. I was not there when they signed up but then my Mom explained that they just signed up on paper. So of course I wasn't thinking much of it since no one would rationally pick a random person to be a model when they don't even know what they look like. So they auditioned and they didn't make it. They were disappointed but told to look at their scores while they looked their scores over they were told that they could try it again along with all the others. They did a much better job the second time and so did everyone one else but...

The American Mall Model Search / READ BEFORE AUDITIONING! :-)

You're obviously a ###. It's also clear that you have never been involved in a competitive sport growing up. Cheerleaders buy skirts, pom poms and other items. Football players get physicals, buy cleets, jerseys, etc. Tennis players buy raquets and balls. Why? Because without those things, they wouldnt be able to play the game honey! How the hell do you expect a model to book shoots with no headshots?! Before you answer that, allow me to explain to you what a "headshot" is. Are you listening?! Pay close attention because it's obvious that you process things slower than normal--...

The American Mall Model Search / NOT A SCAM... COME ON!

Come on get real! How is The AMMS a scam? How can JOhn Robert Powers and Casablanca charge millions of people $1, 000s of dollars for a portfolio and "acting classes" and then have those people go nowhere? I've been through JRP. I paid $8, 000 for a portfolio and didn't get one photo. I took their classes and have not BOOKED one job. I wasted $8, 000 and got nothing in return. The AMMS doesn't promise you that your dreams will come true. It a way to get experience. $300 for a portfolio is nothing. Not only do you get your photos you get the copy release. And you get to be apart...

The American Mall Model Search - Illinois / SCAM!

I tried out for the AMMS. I paid $150.00 like a dummie. I forced my mom and made her feel guilty for "not" believing in me. So she paid the money (mind you shes a single mother) I got my pics and got a 1 yr contract with Model Productions. They said something about being able to land a part in Miley Cyrus new movie "Wings." Then it said I had to pay $75.00 more for business cards. Way to crush my dream. Thank you.
