Here’s what mode Jada S said about her warmup with a Shoot Producer:

I loved the warm ups we did with the purity test and asking questions – I loved that idea. I Almost like that I was not told about that before hand as really helped with my nerves. I liked how cool and open the questions were, it was not just whats your favorite colour or stuff it was deep stuff like have you ever touched someone sexually on a train. I liked that he opened up as well as me, helped me relax and feel like we had some trust.

Gather a group of people, at least 3. Run through the warm up process. Identify kinks in the workflow that might make working warm-ups with models less-smooth, and consider how to ensure it runs smoothly.

Notify Trainer when complete, and describe how it worked for your group.
