Entertainers have a particular need for something often termed a "Digital Press Kit (DPK)," and with the rise of ubiquotous highspeed Internet access, DPK's have evolved into OPK's (Online Press Kits). An OPK can easily serve the function of a traditional press kit, and much, much more. Just think of the cost of preparing a 20 or 30-page full color press kit, printing it and mailing it to a producer or director. It's just not practical, even if you're a successful entertainment professional. In the past, entertainers burned CD's of their press kits and mailed them to interested parties, but the cost or producing and mailing this media was prohibitive. And whenever there were changes to an entertainer's resume, photos, etc., the CD's had to be re-created, re-burned and re-mailed. Again, cost was prohibitive.
The OPK changed all that. An entertainer can have his resume, photos, even video and audio, stored on the web, ready to be viewed (and printed, if need be) by other professionals who need that information.
If you have an OPK website now, you know that developing the site is only the beginning - because as an entertainment professional, you often need to add or change the content, you have only two choices: learn web programming yourself, or pay someone to make changes every time you want to add an photo, video clip or voiceover. Or add a recent job to your resume. Or change your agent contact information. In fact, if you're actively marketing yourself, you can easily spend more on having your website updated than you did on the original design.
With MyActingWebsite from StevesIdeas, you can quickly have your own professional-looking website, with photos, video, audio, an easy-to-maintain resume and much more, in a matter of minutes! Finally, you're in control!
MyActingWebsite includes more than thirty page types and modules to make your website unique, informative and functional. Special features for entertainers include an "Actors' Resume" page type where you can update your professional resume quickly and easily. You can even print a beautifully formatted copy of your resume right from your website, to be attached to your headshots or to be given to casting directors, producers, etc. If you prefer, you can link your resume page directly to your ActorsAccess® or NowCasting® listing.
There's plenty of space for your voiceover and demo video reels (1Gb of storage is standard, and so far this has been more than enough for all our clients. If, however, you need more than this, contact us for pricing for additional storage).
It's incredibly easy to add photos to your website - you can have as many photo albums as you want, which means that you can have one album for headshots, another for on-the-set candids, and yet another for modeling photos. It's your choice, YOU'RE in control!
There's also a "Directory of Projects" module where you can list films and other productions, with links to those productions' websites if you choose. It's a great way to allow visitors to see what you've been up to!
If you're a musician, you might want to use the "Directory of Products" and "Paypal® Interface" so that your visitors can order CDs directly from your website. Both of these features are now available in the Entertainer Package at no additional cost.
Whether you're an actor, stunt person or musician, you'll find the MyActingWebsite Entertainer Package to be a fast, versitile way to create and maintain your professional website.
Your MyActingWebsite is almost infinitely customizable (thousands of color and design combinations, not even counting custom banners, custom backgrounds and almost endless content combinations), with a generous disk storage allowance and features that will enable you to tailor your site to your particular needs and tastes.
