Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
What if the introduction to a video contest was the video that people were excited to share? When Amzini (http://www.amzini.com) set out to help people discover the best social networks for his/her needs, they knew they would first have to help people understand just how much variation and depth there is in the social networking industry.
Today Amzini is launching the video contest "There's a Social Network for That?" to achieve this goal. The introduction video was designed to be entertaining and shared across the social web, with the goal of creating awareness and inspiring people to participate by submitting their own video.
The introduction stars NBA sharpshooter Stephen Curry along with his former Davidson College teammate Steve Rossiter. The duo is backed by 20 guest actors that were selected from several hundred responses to a single tweet Stephen sent out in January:
"Hey I'm shooting a fun YouTube video in SF and Oakland this week. Looking for guest actors to help out."
After two bay area video shoots, the cast had put together a unique introduction video to set the tone for the contest. The complete video and full contest details can be found at the contest's website, http://www.coalwalkers.com
