SHOUT YOURSELF OUT!
The Digital Production BuZZ, the Internet radio show produced and hosted by Larry, has announced The BuZZ Shout-Out! This is a new service – free to users – that lets everyone in film, video, or audio, production or post-production, create a 30-second audio ad that promotes their services.
Editors, directors, producers, set designers, or anyone else directly involved with production, post-production, or distribution can create a 30-second audio ad describing their service and letting prospective employers know what they can do. The Digital Production BuZZ, which reaches tens of thousands of listeners a month around the world (over 30% of the BuZZ audience is outside the U.S.), will run these ads each week on its show. Then, to increase the audience for these ads, they will be included on the Digital Production BuZZ Shout-Out! Web site (www.buzzshoutout.com), highlighted in The Buzz Twitter and FaceBook accounts, and in the weekly Digital Production BuZZ newsletter.
Rules for entering are available at www.BuzzShoutOut.com. We encourage our members to avail themselves of this free resource!
