Tyler Perry has been an inspiration to many around the world. His popular plays and movies have made him a very wealthy man, but he still continues to pay it forward.
In true fashion he has now taken his generosity one step further, offering unknown hopefuls a walk-on role in his upcoming movie via his Talent Search Contest. While thousands have posted video’s showcasing their talent, only one winner will be selected.
It seemed like a great opportunity to let loose and join in the fun, so at the expense of looking completely insane, I even jumped on the bandwagon.
Perry will pick a winner based on the top 10 most popular videos selected by the public. Voting ends on June 29, 2012, so if you have something special to share with the world, you may want to upload your video quickly.
The contest also ties into his new movie release “Madea’s Witness Protection“; making him a marketing genius. I’m not sure if Tyler or President Obama wins when it comes to taking full advantage of social media opportunities to reach out to their fans.
On another note, Tyler why not a FULL role in a movie? What’s up with that?:) But can’t wait to see your new film:). Also, it it really hard to find a video if you posted it late, their site freezes after a few clicks so they should have added a search feature.
Tips on making a Tyler Perry Audition Video….Make it clean, powerful, and add a catchy name. Note; the link is slow so give it some time to load! Darn…they took my link to their site down off my blog:(. If you don’t vote for me…at least please vote for my CAT!
