Model’s Workshop began its series “Meet the Modeling Businesses of SL“ with SCALA™ Models Agency and Academy on July 16th. Seashell Dench, Co-Founder of SCALA, presented her organization’s vision, goals and services offered.
Joining her were members of her team Co-Founder and Academy Director Ms. Kryptonia Paperdoll, Instructors Wicca Merlin and Linda Reddevil, Producers Danity Mynx and PetraLAlexander and staff member Prisilla S. Avro (Silly Avro).
Seashell, who is also the 2014 Avi Choice award winner for Favorite Female Model, opened her presentation by saying that she did not obtain her success at SCALA alone. Her team of professional models also have successes of their own and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the SCALA organization.
Both Kryptonia and Seashell shed light on their academy and how they have geared their curriculum to meet and exceed the demands of SL modeling. Even with minor sound issues, Seashell managed to hold the attention of a standing-room-only audience, and the floor was quickly opened to the audience as SCALA welcomed any and all questions in what was an informative 90-minute session.
As the participants asked their various questions, which ran the gambit from direct questions about SCALA to general questions about Modeling, the different staff members enthusiastically spoke up providing answers and opinions on various topics related to models, the business of modeling in SL, and how it may be possible to transfer skills learned in SL to RL.
The discussion ended on the topic of importance of maintaining and building up the BUSINESS of Fashion Modeling!
A very special thank you to Seashell and the SCALA team for enlightening us on what their organization has to offer those thinking about becoming models or those who want to continue their education in the business.
