Scottsdale, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/27/2014 -- When 17-year-old Sacha Nasan realized international superstar Justin Bieber had been discovered as the result of a YouTube video, he took it as an opportunity to harness the power of social media to help people around the globe gain recognition and even discovery for their unique talents. Thus, Talenty was born.
Talenty, a mobile app now available for download in the Apple iTunes store, gives people the ability to showcase their talents, whatever they may be—from singing, to dancing and anything in between. Users create and share their own unique videos for the world to see.
Talenty has already garnered tremendous excitement, and was able to be launched into development thanks to a successful crowdfunding effort.
This unique and innovative app serves as a platform for exposure in the entertainment industry, as well as a way to support other talented individuals.
Users of the app have the opportunity to not only upload their own talent videos, but also promote the videos of others, which can ultimately lead to a coveted position as a “Featured Talent.”
The app is a way for users to cut through the millions of videos uploaded on YouTube, and instead focus exclusively on talents. It also provides exposure to music managers and production companies who use the app as a source for locating fresh, new talent.
“This is an opportunity to put yourself out there to the world, gain fans, and a loyal following that can eventually be translated into discovery by top talent executives from all over the world,” said Nasan. “I personally loved finding great talent videos on YouTube, and sharing my support for those videos, but you really have to work hard to gain attention on that site.”
“With Talenty, the entire focus is on sharing and supporting talent,” said Nasan. “You’re getting a chance to shine that you wouldn’t be able to with any other social networking site. People are coming to Talenty exclusively to gain access to the most talented people from locations all over the globe, and it gives unprecedented opportunities to reach people who can advance your career.”
In addition to uploading talent videos, and sponsoring other people’s videos, users of the app also have the opportunity to download attention-grabbing videos and watch them offline.
