We all watch music videos and movies, but do you know who finds the actors and models for them? Well, meet Monica Pinto. Monica is a casting director, actress and fashionista everyone should know about. She has been doing it since she was a toddler and she’s one of the best in the game.
She’s worked with massive artists and celebrities like, Ariana Grande, Jon Bon Jovi, Maluma, Future, A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Flipp Dinero, 50 Cent, Fabolous, Meek Mill, Cardi B, Saint JHN, Shoreline Mafia, Bad Bunny, Becky G, Thalia, and so many more she can barely keep track. Her job is to cast people for the music video the artists call her for. Her work has amassed over 6,500,000,000 views on YouTube. Her nickname and username on Instagram and Twitter is Hypmosis. She thought of the name herself she says and she loves working in the entertainment industry.
Monica Pinto has appeared in many viral TV shows and Disney movies including MTV’s Jersey Shore, TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates, and Wiz Khalifa’s music video for the hit song “No Sleep”, among others. Her mom is Patricia Pinto. Patricia is the CEO of La Creme.
Monica says on her free time she enjoys exercising and reading. She plans on starting a YouTube channel to share her experience and tips for people looking to get into the entertainment industry. She says this is essential because not enough people shed light on this topic in this industry and it will truly help aspiring actors, models and even singers. Monica has worked in event planning for various fashion shows, some of which were NYFW and other big shows.
Her work is amazing and she’s certainly someone to keep an eye on. She’s innovating ways in the entertainment industry for casting like hosting virtual casting calls rather than having them offline at a location in New York where people would have to drive to. It’s a great idea and we’re sure her talent will enjoy the fact that they do not need to drive to New York City.
