The modeling and acting industries change quicker than the seasons, and the key to staying ahead is to follow emerging trends. This week we’re bringing you the latest information on industry trends that have begun already and will shape the future of the industries.

Modeling Industry:

While big agencies like Elite, Ford, and Wilhelmina aren’t going anywhere, there are some new names on the block that are getting models interested in signing with them. Dubbed "boutique" agencies, these smaller agencies offer clients more attention as a trade off for the big name. Amongst these agencies, Bella Agency, Request Model Management, and REICH NY, all in New York City, have come to the forefront in finding new faces and signing them to lucrative deals.

The Bella Agency recently signed Amanda Sudano - daughter of disco queen Donna Summer - to a highly anticipated series of Levi’s ads. REICH prides itself in signing on models of all ages for a variety of ad campaigns, and Request models were recently featured in ad campaigns for Valentino, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren.

The secret to these agencies’ successes, despite being the newcomers, is their founders, which on average have had at least 15 years of experience in the industry.

Acting Industry:

The Entertainment Industry Business Council organized a panel of ethnic marketing experts that met last week in Hollywood and concluded that networks and studios are not making enough films and shows that reflect the multicultural population. The panel warned that as a result the industry is losing out on a vast market.

Members of the panel, including Raquel Tomasino, who has worked on ethnic accounts for Warner Bros., Walt Disney Studios, Touchstone Pictures and Disneyland, and Shelby Stone, executive producer of HBO Films, expressed their concern for the ethnic makeup of films. They recommended that the industry look to the trend already set in motion by shows like ABC's "Lost" for its multiethnic casts and content.

Rather than having a "token" actor of any given ethnicity, the panel members suggested "color-blind" casting for all parts. This will also open up doors for actors of all ethnicities, who may have previously been type-cast into certain roles, but will instead have a chance at leading roles.
