So I thought I would just explain myself and my lingo a little bit. Years ago I came up with the term “civilian” for people in my chair who are not “talent”. So I thought I would take a minute and differentiate the two so you can understand what I’m saying when I speak like this because I know I can be a little difficult to understand at times. I blame business and children.  Ha ha.

CIVILIAN Civilians are clients that are regular people who do not work in the on-camera industry. Let me just name a few…

bridal clients, special event clients, family picture clients, prom clients etc.

TALENT  Talent individuals are people who work in the on-camera industry. You are usually prepping his people to go in front of the camera to do their job. Here are a few of them for your reference…

models, actors, television hosts, public figures, News and sports announcers, etc.

I hope this helps you understand a little bit about where I’m coming from when I speak in these terms.

Happy differentiating my lingo, Mary RC
