Press Release: Casting Calls

Now that we have had a few weeks to fill up our casting call section, we thought it was the right time to announce it to the world. So, we made a press release:

Taltopia.com Launches Casting Call Section

Taltopia.com, a platform that connects aspiring talent with fans and entertainment industry professionals, announced today the launch of a new casting calls section on their talent website. The addition of this feature has brought Taltopia.com one step closer to becoming a true utopia for talent.

Taltopia’s new casting calls section is designed to accommodate various types of talent-seeking professionals including casting directors, photographers, filmmakers, choreographers, talent agents, and music producers. The painstaking task of finding models for a photo shoot, recruiting actors for a film, discovering unsigned bands, and other casting needs have all been simplified by this new feature. Unlike other casting and audition websites, Taltopia.com does not charge industry professionals a fee to post their casting calls and projects. Taltopia’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to post projects, define specific roles, and conveniently manage the selection process from start to finish.

Another valuable tool only available to industry professionals is the advanced search engine which allows professionals to tap into Taltopia’s vast database of unsigned artists to find talent that meet their specific criteria. Searchable characteristics include gender, hair color, eye color, height, weight, age, ethnicity, and geographic location.

Casting agents for popular television networks such as MTV and VH1 have started flocking to the site to take advantage of the huge pool of undiscovered talent. “Our new casting calls section has helped Taltopia’s members find relevant opportunities in the entertainment industry while providing industry professionals with the tools they need to discover the talent they seek,” said co-founder Anthony Zanontian. “We are really excited to see our casting call section taking off,” he added.

Due to a lack of suitable alternatives, most talent seekers have been forced to use unfocused website’s to satisfy their needs. “Our new casting calls feature has liberated people from using general classified site’s like Craigslist.com to discover talent,” said co-founder Allen Vartazarian. “Our focus is talent. This is what we do best.”

About Taltopia.com: Taltopia.com is a platform that connects aspiring talent with fans and entertainment industry professionals. Members can create free profiles, upload media, join fan clubs, enter contest, and submit to casting calls. Categories include music, art, acting, dance, comedy, and modeling. Taltopia.com received $800,000 in angel funding in March of 2008 and is based in Los Angeles, California.
