Faviola Dadis, IMG Models:
"In the digital age it's becoming more common for clients to request video of their models along with portfolio images. thanks to VCCP and their amazing videography crew for putting this together!"
Reginald M. LaFrance (three time Emmy Award winning Producer/Director, director of MTV's reality show " Real World "):
"These video cards are a great idea, and should be a lifesaver for casting directors and producers alike! We at times have had boxes full of DVD’s, tapes, dead links, & head shots that take a great deal of time & money to sift through. I dig the innovative forward thinking!"

"Great way to preview a models ability to create compelling fluidity of movement. The simplicity of the staging helps bring the focus directly to what a potential client or collaborator needs to know immediately. Bravo."
Photographer and Director Isaac Alvarez, Isaac Alvarez Studio, Los Angeles:
"It's a great idea, never seen before. Since we are in the age of media and more visually geared, this can definitely be useful for talents."

Jeff LeFever, Fashion and Product Photographer:
"Great idea - as a photographer, video comp cards give me a good feel for a model and what they would be like to work with . I can see this making casting a lot easier in the future. Great idea! This is one of those ideas I wish I initiated!"

I just did a collaboration with VCCP to make me a Video Comp Card for work. VCC's are a great way for international / out of state clients to see how you come across on camera and how you move before they book. I highly recommend VCCP if your in or want to get in the fashion industry. The VCCP team makes one feel at ease in front of the camera. Check them out!
