Paula Abdul launches new talent-search website
Paula Abdul has launched a new talent-discovery website called AuditionBooth, which bills itself as “the first full-service casting web site where audition videos are sent straight to casting decision-makers for top TV shows, record labels, ad campaigns, theatrical productions and films, along with a wide range of other talent opportunities.” Frank Celli and Greg Brill cofounded the site, which went into public beta this morning.
AuditionBooth allows adult users to upload audition videos of themselves and casting directors to search for talent that meets their criteria. The site itself is free for auditioners, but users who purchase a premium membership get better placement in casting agents’ inboxes and the ability to replace or redo audition videos. [THR]
