Do you think you are more entertaining than Andy Milonakis? Are you and your friends more exciting than the kids from Laguna Beach? Are you funnier than Dave Chappelle? If so, AOL is giving you the chance to prove it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGlp_r8eDAk
RED, the division of AOL that provides content to its teens members, is looking for talented teens between the ages of 13 & 17 who think they have what it takes to create and star in their very own show.
“Be a RED Star” will give teens across the country an opportunity to showcase themselves and their show idea, but once the producers narrow it down to the top five, they’ll turn it over to online voters who will decide the winner. The top five finalists will receive a cash prize of $1,000 but only the winner will receive a cash prize of $10,000 and a deal to continue production of three more episodes of his or her winning show idea on AOL RED.
“The sky is the limit in terms of creative direction for the show concepts – talk shows, makeover shows, variety shows, reality shows, game shows, cooking shows – all ideas are welcome,” says Executive Producer Timothy J. Hamilton.
Those interested in applying can go to http://www.beaREDstar.com now to begin the application process. Completed applications must be submitted with a video postmarked by August 21, 2006 and received by August 28, 2006. No Purchase necessary to enter or win. This contest is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United states and the District of Columbia, between 13 and 17 Years of age. Void in Puerto Rico and where prohibited.
Producers will select five finalists from eligible submissions and help them professionally produce one episode of their concept. These five shows will be placed online for viewers to decide who is most deserving of their own show. The person whose video gets the most votes will receive $10,000 and the opportunity to continue production of his or her own show on AOL RED.
RED offers teens a customized version of the AOL service. Teens can personalize their desktop and choose topics to highlight based on their specific interests, such as exclusive content and features from leading brands, original programming and expanded community tools.
