Honestly, you get so many discounts for such a low price per year, it's almost irresponsible to not get the Star Card if you're a working actor...This will be big. We're going to help a lot of actors with this" Michelle Luchese, ActorRated.com
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2010
Launched in late August, the ActorRated Star Card program is a first of it's kind for actors, providing much needed discounts on products and services from top companies in the industry that actors are already using. “The struggling economy is really impacting already struggling actors, so we've leveraged our relationship with the top businesses in LA and NY to get them to offer some really amazing deals to our Star Card members,” said Michelle Luchese, marketing director of the site. “These are amazing deals. Headshots for $300 off, classes for $150 off. The card right now has over $4,000 worth of discounts in LA and NY, and we have plans to expand to other major cities in the next few months.”
Actors will be pleasantly surprised to find that the new Star Card is about the price that they would pay for one workshop. At only $50 per year, Luchese says that the Star Card is positioned to really take the industry by storm. “We want this to be a no-brainer. Honestly, you get so many discounts for such a low price per year, it's almost irresponsible to not get the Star Card if you're a working actor, unless money isn't important to you of course. This will be big. We're going to help a lot of actors with this.”
ActorRated.com is one place on the Web where actors can share their opinions and knowledge on the best products and services in the entertainment industry. A community-led site where actors rate and post reviews on everything from headshot photographers, acting classes, workshops and more. ActorRated.com is the ultimate word-of-mouth experience for any actor.
"ActorRated.com is all about creating a community for actors to exchange ideas and reviews about the products and services they find helpful to their working in the industry. It is the go-to place for sharing opinions, reviews, and advice. There is nothing else like it on the Web,” says Johnathan Ruggiero, founder of the site.
Also providing links to essential industry and casting resources, publications, blogs, and social networking sites, ActorRated.com serves as a lifeline to the acting world. It is fast becoming the industry standard for rating and reviewing actor-related products and services.
“We have over 600 registered companies in LA and NY alone that are currently asking their clients to come review them on the site. It's a win-win for actors and businesses alike” Ruggiero explains. “Having such a close relationship with our businesses has allowed us some extra benefits as well, such as getting them to participate in our new Star Card program”.
ActorRated also recently launched a new workshop series, which provides actors with free workshops and seminars by some of Los Angeles's top casting directors, acting teachers and other inspirational speakers. Held at Anthony Meindl's Actor's Workshop in Hollywood, actors are taking advantage of the free knowledge that they are used to paying for.
For working actors arriving in LA, New York, or other cities around the world looking for a great photographer for headshots or a veteran performer willing to share their best advice about working in the business, ActorRated.com provides actors with rating and reviews for products and services that they probably already use and a discount program to be able to afford them without breaking the bank. ActorRated.com will change the way business is done in Hollywood, at least from an actor's perspective.
