Talent6 selected for Entertainment Standard of Excellence by WebAwards - Talent6


Talent6 , a San Francisco based entertainment company has been selected as a winner in the WebAward Competition for Entertainment Standard of Excellence and Online Community Standard of Excellence. The Web Marketing Association is the producer of the WebAward Competition. Now in its 12th year, the WebAwards is the premier annual website award competition that names the best Web sites in 96 industries while setting the standard of excellence for all website development.

Talent6 Entertainment Standard of Excellence Award is in good company with fellow award winners, such as, Disney, USA Networks, American Idol Live, 50th Annual Grammy Awards and Rogers & Hammerstein Organization.

Talent6 provides casting calls nationwide for just about everyone and anyone wanting to get their start in the entertainment industry working as an extra in Movies, TV Shows, Modeling and Music Videos. Talent6 works with some of the biggest network shows and movies in Hollywood, as well as, short independent films, dance, music and theatrical productions. John T. Williams, Marketing Director at Talent6, says, “The goal for our new web site is to provide our talents with maximum exposure to casting directors searching for new talent and thousands of casting call opportunities nationwide.”

A WebAward judge writes, "This is a great site. It is clear what the purpose is, who it's for, and what they can expect. I found it simple to navigate to any part of it and the overall scheme was pleasing to the eye. This is the sign of a mature developer who understands the principles of web design and not just how to impress clients. Because of that, clients are impressed anyway without glitz and show that provides nothing to the user. Very good job. I give very few scores this high."

Talent6 spent six months developing their new web site and has seen a dramatic increase in new membership and existing membership retention. “We hit our goals perfectly with the new site and this award from WebAwards, confirms it”, says Igor Reiant, CEO of Talent6.

CASTING360 AKA TALENT6 FINED $45,000 FOR FRAUD

San Mateo County consumer protection authorities are warning aspiring actors around the nation to be extra careful when pursuing their dreams of stardom after they fined a South San Francisco talent agency Casting360 also known as Talent6 for breaking state laws.

The District Attorney's Office Consumer Protection Unit said it opened the investigation into the Casting360 and Talent6 websites, after about 200 would-be entertainers complained about the company to the Better Business Bureau.

The website links actors to potential auditions and charges them a fee upfront, then automatically charges them nearly $30 per month if they do not cancel, said Deputy District Attorney Chuck Finney. The site did not explain the contract to customers and in some cases advertised auditions that did not appear to exist, he said. The sites also used various employement sites advertising for actual jobs and then engaging in a "bait & switch" tactic.

The DA's office sued the company in San Mateo County Superior Court last month, claiming it violated two sections of state business and professions law that outline misrepresentation and unfair practices. Each violation comes with a $2, 500 fine per victim.

Judge Stephen Hall issued a judgment Thursday in which the company will pay a $45, 000 fine to the DA's office and its president will meet with Finney every four months for the next two years to discuss complaints against the company that consumers filed with authorities. The agency is also banned from advertising casting call opportunities "unless true" and from charging monthly fees without a customer's consent. In Many cases the company made it nearly impossible to cancel the service and double billed thousands of victims.

Finney said the company has paid back nearly everyone who complained. But his office was concerned the salespeople were working on commission and not divulging the full agreement to actors, or doing whatever they could to seal a sale. Casting360 and Talent6 Call Centers are located In Moldova, a former Soviet Bloc republic. The company maintains a small adminstrative presence in the USA.

"Would-be actors need to really make sure that they understand what the relationship is, " with talent managers, Finney said. "Young people are so star-struck that they think there is just a great opportunity out there."

Attorneys for the company did not return calls for comment Friday. In the ruling, the company and its president, Igor Reiant, agreed to pay the fine and meet the judge's demands.

This web award site isn't even real. And I am thinking those movie producers that you mention in this post are going to be VERY interested that you are using their names. They have casting companies, and it sure ain't you. BTW I notice you are now selling clothing and other merchandise on your site. Is this the beginning of the end? I sure hope so. I am going to do whatever I can to aid that process. You didn't get away with scamming me, but you have stolen from too many others!

You are a scam. I posted an ad on Craigslist for a singer, and then I got email from you stating that you had copied my ad and placed it on your site, so that makes me a meber of your site. You even assigned me a user name a chose a password for me. If I want to take my ad off of your site, I have to sign in with the password and user name you gave me. You charge people money to show them listings they have already seen on the internet for free, and you don't even bother to target the auditions to the talent. You send child auditions to adults. You send ethnic auditions to white people. You are a scam.
