Today we break into the fashion and commercial world of high-end male modeling. Who else to analyze it than someone with years of experience in the field, super model RUDY BUNDINI? Years ago when he first started his career, nobody could imagine that he would turn into one of the most recognizable faces in the fashion and commercial world. Today he has become one of the most well-known faces in the modeling industry.

Male modeling is a unique career choice in that there is no specific path to success. Many men try and fail while others are able to land short-term work without the ability to earn consistent and stable long-term wages. However, one male model has been able to stand out above the rest. Rudy Bundini has been able to remain successful in the industry and earn illustrious recognition for his work from Asia to New York to Dubai. Rudy was kind enough to sit down with us from his busy schedule to shed some light into why certain male models succeed while others are replaced.

If you’ve never heard of Rudy before, you have probably seen his work. He has graced the ad campaigns of designers and companies including Philipp Plein, Nike, Versace and Roger Dubois.  His Instagram account boasts over a million followers and is filled with professional pictures of his perfect godlike physique and chiseled jawline. Although there are always newer and fresher faces breaking into the male modeling industry on a daily basis, Rudy has been able to maintain steady and consistent success through his hard work, dedication and innate ability to keep up with the newest trends.

One of the main ingredients that contributes to Rudy’s success is his laser-like focus. When asked about what he would do if modeling did not work out for him, he simply responded “I don’t have a plan B, only different ways to make plan A work.” His tenacity and drive is unmatched by any other male model in the industry. He studies and learns about each advertising campaign that he is shooting for and learns about what the underlying audience are seeking. Different campaigns target different demographics and Rudy has become skillful in the art of perfecting his craft for his target audience.

When asked if there is any advice he would give other models, Rudy explains that representing your true self is the master key to unlocking many of the difficulties in the modern world. People become afraid of revealing their true selves and eventually forget who they really are. For example, Rudy modeled in the high fashion industry in Dubai and was booked consistently by multiple brands and many different advertising campaigns. However the fashion industry in Dubai quickly shifted and the type of male models sought out were quite different from the traditional male model types. While companies and designers were initially looking for masculine men with big frames, wide shoulders and chiseled jawlines, all of which Rudy fit perfectly into, the industry took a turn where the type of physique that were sought out tended to be smaller and less masculine. Rudy responded by following one of his personal inspirational quotes, “Accept what you cannot change and change what you cannot accept.”

Rudy soon realized that he would lose his chances in high fashion castings due to his masculine physique. However, it did not stop him from working towards his end goal, which was to become of the top male international models. Although the high fashion industry was changing, Rudy was able to successfully steer his modeling career towards commercials and editorial footprints. Using this strategy, he was able to still book high fashion brands who desired the old school look of masculine physiques and faces while still finding success through different avenues in the modeling industry.

It was by accepting reality and adjusting himself accordingly to changes in the industry that Rudy was able to book consistent work and find continued success. The modeling industry is an ever-changing one and one can only adapt and adjust to the world around it. Rudy concludes that “To protect your feet, it is easier to have your shoes on than to carpet the entire world.”

Luxury. Technology. Advancement. Opportunities. Growth. Comfort. Peace of Mind. Strong Economy. Stable Jobs.

These are the terms associated with countries, including the United States, Western European countries, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and Japan. People living here spend luxurious lives and enjoy peace of mind. They are exposed to fantastic opportunities and have many chances to succeed in life. The citizens of these countries have access to stable markets and have a stable lifestyle.

Despair. Struggle. Lack of Opportunities. Crime. Failures. Weak Economy. Unstable Lifestyles. Discomfort.

These are the terms that perfectly describe the life of people in third-world countries. The people who reside in these parts of the world are mostly on a ‘survival’ mode. They do not have access to opportunities, and they have to fight to get their fundamental rights. These lands give birth to some amazingly talented individuals. However, due to lack of opportunities, exposure, and resources kill their dreams, and the world loses pure talent.

Whether it is politics, corporate world, industrial sector, or field of arts, the citizens of weak nations and communities have to face many more adversities than a person living an economically-stable country. While music is one of those sectors in the world, where factors like ethnicities, religion, nationality, and backgrounds do not matter, but underprivileged yet talented people have to fight their way into this industry.

There was no proper medium through which such musicians could show the world their potential until LeftRight Music Group came into the picture. It is a music and entertainment company based in Manhattan, New York, which has been established to represent artists in the United States from all across the globe. It is one of those record labels that has come into the industry to specifically provide the musicians from the third-world a chance to make a name for themselves in this industry.

Founded by Hans Tondereau, a record producer, this company is currently representing a Spanish-Haitian musician, Merlin Zapravo. He was a musician who was struggling to survive in the music industry in the United States, but after being signed by LeftRight Music Group (LRMG), he came close to success. With this artist, the company has signed a 50/50 recording contract. The catalog of LRMG comprises of one EP and seven singles with Merlin Zapravo.

Hans Tondereau is planning to expand LRMG further and has partnered with several notable companies, including Jade Skye Music, Hat Label Publishing, a FIVONI. Adding to the company’s credibility is its partnership with brands such as LRMGx, THE BOXKC, and Berlin Motion.

A Platform for True Talent, A Hope for Strugglers

Just like Merlin Zapravo, the company expects to sign other musicians too. Even though it is not only restricted to promoting third-world musicians, but its goal is to represent the ones who do not get a chance to succeed in this world. Hans Tondereau wanted to ‘inspire independent artists with little to no budget or knowledge to support their visions.’ LRMG is doing exactly that. It signed Merlin Zapravo in 2017, and an EP, “Certified Baller,” was released in 2018. It was then followed by the release of eight singles. These included two 2018 releases of “I’ll Be There” and “Dance With Me,” three 2019 releases including “Be Yourself, “ “Din Din,” and “Malandren,” and two recent releases in 2020, including “The Deal” and “Money.”

Hans became the first self-published artist to invest in other musicians while focusing on his own. Just like the Spanish-Haitian musician, he hopes to sign other artists who are packed with talent and energy but are unable to get a satisfying opportunity.

To cover all aspects of signing an artist, as well as promotion that generates money, LeftRight Music Group moves on from a leaf to a multiplied Rights Agreement. The agreement includes the income from recordings, live performance, publishing and expense, rights for recording, distribution, and touring.

LeftRight Music Group Corporation with LRMG X, Hiilands Music, Rapso Records as its subsidiaries, first came into the picture on May 18, 2017, and it signed its first artist. The music entertainment company acquired its present subsidiaries in 2018 and was officially launched on July 29, 2019. By offering music production, music distribution, and artist services, LRMG is playing a pivotal role in supporting and promoting the creative and financial vitality of independent artists of all music genres. The platform has its exclusive focus on artists from the third-world and is working to help such artists reach their potential and connect with their audiences globally.
