We'll Make the Future Together!
With the ever on going changing of Internet technologies and video platforms such as YouTube, the entire circus industry has changed. In the majority of cases, show producers or casting directors book artists for their shows via YouTube and that we all know is a fact. Currently on the internet are the largest variety of circus acts and it becomes more and more difficult to become noticed by employers. I’ve been producing circus artists for 10 years and I know firsthand how difficult to promote new acts. Casting directors around the world receive thousands of emails with video links, but they are physically unable to view all of them. Based on my experience, I developed a completely new concept, and I am sure that the "Online Circus Festival" will become a new innovative platform that can give a great chance and promote new, truly worthy artists. As soon as I announced the festival, I received a lot of positive feedback from employers from around the world and I am extremely grateful to the 20 members of the jury who believed in me and agreed to be part of this experimental project. The main “point” of the festival (which can be implemented only on the Internet) will be the play-off system and the lottery draws of the participants and jury members, all this will give incredible intrigue and unpredictability. In this difficult time, when circuses all over the world are forced to close, and artists, unfortunately, are sitting without job on quarantine.. The "Online Circus Festival" will unite the entire circus community from all over the world on the Internet and at least, help to overcome this difficult period together!
