    My first post!
    TalentShowcase.tv launching this Autumn is building a video database of the country's best regional talent. Each artists listing has a unique URL enabling video, audio samples and bio to be accessed with a single click. Our next FREE auditions are in Belfast on 7&8 November at the Wellington Park Hotel. For details see www.talentshowcase.tv.

    So it's basically Myspace with an embedded youtube vid? Except
    at great cost?

    Magic. Where do we sign.
  6. avatar Deadlights
    You forgot cheaper looking, less popular and less user friends (by the looks of things)

    I'd like to see their "videos" - most likely a camcorder in the corner of the room with the band performing in a hotel lobby. Not exactly the best way to sell yourself.

    We have been asked to justify our optional production fees and explain how our service differs from what individuals can post themselves to sites such a MySpace. Here are the main points:
    [*] Our service includes a professional studio recording of up to 3 audio tracks for each artist. In this case [url=www.railwaystudios.com]The Railway Studios, Lisburn[/url]recorded and mixed by record producer Ross Cullen. We'll be adding a gallery of the first session soon.
    [*] As part of the free audition and screen test process artists receive an assessment of their talent and potential from a professional vocal coach, choreographer etc. Our auditions are open to all types of act.
    [*] Artists can choose a studio video or live session filmed on broadcast quality cameras. Video production is under the direction of Mike Smythe, formerly with BBC television. We only have the audition reel live at the moment and the dedicated video channel will launch once we have completed further audition rounds.
    [*] Artists in each category will be promoted to potential employers. One booking generally covers more than a years costs. We could not do this is we allowed an uncontrolled upload of material.
    [*] Production charges are entirely optional. If an artist already has this material the production fee does not apply.
    [*] All pricing is on the website included with the original post. We have no hidden charges.
    [*] Our audio/video production facilities are available to all whether or not you wish to apply for a listing. We can produce and embed a video in any website.

    We need to cater to a wide range of tastes so not all acts will be to your liking. We are happy to receive constructive comments and answer your questions at any time.

    So let's say I turn up in a tube top and hotpants and you like audition. I pay you then just 99 pounds and you record me a broadcast quality Vid and a 3 track pro demo. Then I pay you 19 quid a mo to put it on your site?[/quote:2513efdf4f]

    Anto if you turn up in hotpants and a tube top I'll pay for a feckin month's hosting, that is if I do not die from laughing, or vomit up my pelvis. CAKE!

    Yet another image I do not need, lol.

    This "Mike Smyth formerly of BBC television" could've just as easily worked in the BBC light bulb changing department... just because he says he's from the BBC doesn't mean he has anything to do with filming or production.
