Denner (235) Impossible to generalize - some models are quite professional in the attitude - some not. And btw that goes for both pix and vids.....

Capn (28) A video model might aspire to act, but a photograher's model has different skill set requirement..so I say 'No'.

pat362 (375) Websters definition for acting is: The art or profession of performing the role of a character. this is not what a model does. That doesn't mean that I don't see where Denner is coming from but I don't consider what a model does as acting so much as posing.

After all no one thinks that a model who's wearing a business suit in a court room photo is a lawyer but we do if we see that same model wearing that same suit during a movies court room scene. Mind you that last part rarely happens because most models can't act. The best examples of that are all those models that tried their hand at acting.

I can count on my hand the number of models who were able to have an actual acting career.

When a model poses she is making a focal point for the camera. Often under the direction of the photographer she is told what to do. where to move and even when to smile.

And actress, must create a scene to give a story. Models who are photographed seldom tell a story in away a actress does.

I am a photographer a dam good one I think.
That does not mean I would be a good movie director now does it.

Same same. Model does not mean actress it means model LOL

Jay G (67) Entertainers.... If it's the pretty girl in the chorus line or the swimsuit model, a porn actress or a dramatic actress. While we enjoy putting people in neat categories and can argue who belongs in which box, all those who we look at for entertainment are .....

Drooler (220) I think the good ones do act. With them, there's more to it than just striking poses. It's a mistake to confuse the medium with the intent of the photographer and/or model. And going to the dictionary is for people who aren't sure if they know what the word means but somehow presume that lexicographers had anticipated my poll question.

You can tell the difference between just posing and creating a mood that goes into a narrative framework. The same goes for video.
