Think you can rock an improv’d segue from chatting gadget love with Veronica Belmont to online therapy with Lisa Kudrow then over to Tatyana Ali and her Buppies? All this while also keeping Sandeep Parikh from dropping too many on-camera f-bombs? Then there might be a job for you in April. The Streamy Awards have launched a search for an official red carpet host through online casting hub GotCast today. The host will broadcast live from the April 11th Streamy Awards ceremony as stars of all sort arrive for web entertainment’s premiere event.
The nationwide search kicked off today with would-be hosts submitting audition videos on GotCast. Producers will then select the top candidate from the submissions. And yes, only those that submit through GotCast will be eligible to be cast. Think you have what it takes? Better study up on the official 2010 Streamys nominees. And yes, you may be asked to name the entire casts up for ensemble cast. Quick—this married couple are both nominated together in the Best Ensemble Cast—who are they?
“At GotCast, we’re really excited to announce this casting to our community,” said GotCast CEO Alec Shankman. “The Streamy Award Show is an incredible event. We expect that the talent search for a red carpet host will be one of our most popular casting calls this year!”
The Streamy Awards seeks one standout personality to host the official Red Carpet show for the second annual star-studded event honoring excellence in online entertainment. Digitally-savvy charmers with strong knowledge of pop culture, celebrity and online entertainment trends are encouraged to apply.
The ideal candidate will marry the shine of traditional broadcast experience with an easygoing attitude embodying a democratized, creator-controlled entertainment medium. He or she possesses a punchy whit, awesome improv skills, interesting insights for digital creators and a demonstrated interest in the open entertainment ecosystem.
Seeking male or female, all ethnicities who are at least 18 years of age.
