Bartlett, TN (PressExposure) April 27, 2013 -- Skillz Entertainment announced today the launch of http://www.skillzent.com, the anticipated social media website that has been in development for eight years. The focus of the interactive website is to provide a broad audience of aspiring professionals in the film, music, sports, and fashion industries the opportunity to directly connect with professionals that are more experienced and their fan bases. It also provides users with an opportunity to generate income through a social media entertainment marketplace.
"The world is filled with so many expressions of talent and beauty. There will always be an audience in search of the next 'shining star.' We have designed an infrastructure that will give the world an opportunity to embrace talent that has never before been seen," says Marcus Andrews, founder and chief executive officer of Skillz Entertainment. "We are empowering the independent artist and allowing them to have a chance at success - even if they have never signed a major contract. Likewise, aspiring entertainers will have at their fingertips valuable resources designed to assist in educating them and protecting their intellectual property."
Each user receives a "profile navigator" that consists of a portfolio, community, correspondence, credentials, products/services and contact information module. These tools benefit those who are interested in exposure for their brand, product or service. Users of the social media website who are musicians, actors, and models will have the opportunity to display their talents and generate exposure by entering into the "Show Me Your Skillz" contest. The votes by the website's users produce points for the contestants and the winner will have an opportunity to receive cash and prizes!
Skillz Entertainment's users will have access to actors, musicians, models, publicists, managers and other industry professionals. The website also features enriched content, and streaming media including hundreds of video clips, full-length movies, television shows and radio stations.
The website is organized to provide quick and direct access to these resources and others. If a user is not sure where to look for specific information on skillzent.com, the website-wide search engine will help. The website's design incorporates bold colors and graphics including user-friendly navigational tools. The social media website unites all of the tools that a new and experienced entertainment professional will need in one location. Skillz Entertainment creates a new home in cyberspace for the wide-ranging resources that are available.
