Trial and Error

I do wanna be an online star! I do, I do, I do!

April 19, 2007 7:09 PM

So let's assume I am a digital video creator with stars in my eyes. Let's pretend I've got a hankering to be the next LonelyGirl or Ask a Ninja.

What would I do? Why, I'd go to Veoh, of course. And I'd submit my digital reel to the United Talent Agency and then my phone would ring off the hook with a flurry of offers of representation. A bidding war would ensue.

In order to do this, I must first go to Veoh.com and upload the latest in my sweet new video series, featuring me breakdancing with my calico cat Patches on top of a swingset that I painted purple. Fortunately, Veoh has made it super easy for Patches and me -- the link to upload is on the Veoh home page, and it guides me straight through the simple upload process.

So now all that's left is the waiting. Kitty and I snuggle up in front of the warm laptop and waiting for eager UTA agents to grant us our 15 minutes. But in the meantime, we decide to check out the competition, since fortunately all the other submissions are posted for anyone to view. So come on over to Veoh and let me know who we need to beat.

The UTA submissions channel went live on April 18.
