Max Millan Corpuz
I think my personality is what makes me unique.
Max Millan, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
As mentioned earlier, my passion is performing and entertaining other people. I started as an actor in the theatre when I graduated college. Because of the theatre, I met friends who do photo shoots I started modelling in one of their sessions.
Who is your inspiration in life Max Millan? How do you keep inspired?
My family is the one that keeps me inspired every day
We all make mistakes Max Millan; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
During a final casting call, only me two other colleagues were left so that only one of us was chosen for a TV Commercial. We did try our very best at that time. The caster told us that our agents would text us whenever the client comes up with a decision. When I got the text that I wasn't chosen, I took it against me, and I hated my self. But later on, I realised that I should not do that because there's a purpose for everything and maybe there's a project that would best for me.
Max Millan, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
As long as I love my job and out my heart into it, as long as I stay focused on everything that I am doing, I give my 100% best and manage my time very well; I think I could deliver an excellent service.
Please tell us, Max Millan, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I think being a model is not just when you are doing projects. Being a model is a commitment. When there are no casting calls or when I am not doing anything for a particular day, I tried my very best to stay myself fit, make myself healthy for upcoming projects and greater demands.
Max Millan, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Working with others and collaborating is a very tough job. But when I was able to speak my mind, show them that my opinion is valuable and when I work not just in my perspective but also valuing others' perspective by listening to them. Then I was able to persuade others to see things my way.
Max Millan, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
When I was able to make a kid comfortable to me when I did a commercial for an amusement park was my proudest moment. As you see, kids are very vulnerable. When they throw tantrums, they will not work with you, and the production suffers. The production staff, the director and assistant director even thanked me and told me that I made their jobs easier.
Max Millan, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Since acting is my passion, I did an online series that we are about to release. It's like an independent project. It was exciting because it's my first time directing it. What is difficult is sustaining the course of the shoot with a very minimal budget. Good thing, we were able to pull it off.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
My advice is that they must place their heart in everything that they do. They must also be persistent, be optimistic and never stop believing in themselves.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I'm looking forward to collaborating on Photoshoots and doing an online digital ad or TV commercials
