Title_mark What is artcom.gr

Artcom.gr is a dynamic website which has been formed in order to make the difference in the world of entertainment and in the space of art. It was created in order to “unify” the artists with the “technocrats” of art. and to facilitate the production from A to Z; from the development of ideas to the selection of suitable co-workers.

It is not easy to explain, in a few words, Artcom’s endless capabilities and strengths or the simplicity of its operation.

Today’s needs of projection and communication has driven young artists into groups such as Facebook and other relevant web pages. This has resulted in a lot of confusion.

Artcom.gr will facilitate you and you will not need to enter any other web page or agency. You will be able to upload your CV, update it, change photographs, add a video from your work or show reel, communicate, use the forum, chat etc., therefore saving time, effort and money!

Artcom.gr is not simply a site for the projection of artists, but the ideal search tool. Each artists’ CV is on display for any interested party to check out. It is a bank of information for all those involved in the world of art.

Title_mark Artcom's audience

Title_mark Why should I become a member?

In the age of IT, only those who can adapt to the new ways of communication and public relations are able survive. The days when artists knocked on doors are now gone. CVs are registered in electronic form and communication is via email or sms… those who are not registered on the Internet don’t stand a chance.

Artcom.gr was established in order to make life easier and is a pioneer in creating a specialized site for anyone interested in dealing with the world of Entertainment and Art. It is unique in its type, not only in Greece, but also worldwide. Its structure and its mode of registration, searches and communication are constructed specifically for the world of art…

No other site provides :

SEARCH ENGINE: (as registered information and key words).

COMMUNICATION: (via e-mail, inbox, SMS).

FORUM: (where casting, seminars, premieres and artistic news is published and the “artistic cafe” for discussions exists. Any member can comment or make public announcements. FREE OF CHARGE).

CHAT: (for live exchange of opinions).

EDIT PROFILE: (by member using a code, to update his own profile with latest employment, etc.).

UPLOAD PHOTOS: (at any given time).

VIDEO:(upload videos with showreel or extracts showing participation).

SAMPLE OF WORK: (in files [doc, pdf], sound [mp3, wav] or [link]).

REGISTRATION URL: (for personal web page to appear immediately).

APPEARANCE OF WORK STATUS: (if member is available, if working now and up until when).

LISTS: (you create lists inserting friends, co-workers, people that you want to keep in mind or have selected for co-operation, thus facilitating communication or a group whenever the need arises.)

MEMBER STATISTICS: (in order to see how active a member you are in the art community, how many have viewed your profile and in how many lists you are selected for likely collaborations).


ALL THE ABOVE POSSIBILITIES MAKE ARTCOM.GR, THE IDEAL “TOOL” FOR FINDING THE MOST SUITABLE ARTIST OR CO-WORKER BEING SOUGHT

Title_mark How are the casting-lists formed?

Casting at artcom.gr is easy and specialized…

Suppose you are a director who is preparing a new tv series and you need to find actors and co-workers:


1)Go to the icon "my lists", (found on the blue bar), click and write the title of the series in the area that says “creation of new list”, (i.e. “Love as rain”). Finally click “creation of new list”.

2)To continue, on the orange bar you select “Artists” - “Actors”, which allows you to view photos of all the actors in the site… If you are looking for leading roles and want them to be well-known actors, you will select “leading role” or “known”, which are found below the orange bar. If on the other hand you are looking for young actors that are upcoming, select “upcoming”… If you want young actors, you can see also look in the “students of Drama schools” section. If you want them to have specific skills, right click on “skills”, and you can search according to sex, age, features, languages, dance, song, sports and other skills that each member has stated.

3)Viewing photographs and reading CVs, which you consider appropriate a specific role, click on the photograph on the symbol (+), “addition to the list”. The same procedure applies for any co-workers for “co-workers” or “Screenwriters”for screenwriters, etc. clicking “addition to the list” for each potential member.

4)If you now enter “my lists” and open the list, (e.g. “Love as rain”), you will see the actors you have selected, and can add the name of the role for which you intend each actor to have.


In another place, (list of co-workers), you will see all the members that you have selected. This list can be printed or saved at artcom. New lists can be created at any time!

You can send messages or SMS’ (individually or to groups) to inform them about possible future collaboration.

Title_mark Means of communication: (Mail-Inbox-SMS)

The most significant thing in an artistic community is that its members communicate instantly with one another. However artcom.gr does not allow artists’ telephone numbers to be viewed in public for obvious reasons.


At artcom.gr, communication is readily available and totally secure!


You can be a member, (without being a subscriber) and communicate with all the members of artcom, via internal messages (inbox), and with email, (if members have selected it to be visible). If you are subscriber, you can chat online.

An innovation introduced by artcom.gr, allows direct communication between members only - via their SMS*!!!


That is to say a member of artcom, can send an sms to another member, (subscribers only), clicking “send sms”, (the icon with telephone, that is found underneath the photograph of the member), without knowing the number.


Immediately the sms will be sent to the mobile, specifying that it is from artcom.gr, and more specifically from which member! The recipient can see the profile of the sender before answering or communicating with them by message via artcom.

* [The sms is charged to the sender (available packages of 50,100 or 300 sms). For test reasons we provide 3 free SMS for members who have signed up and have subscriptions for one month and 20 free SMS for subscribers].


THIS DIRECT AND FREE OF CHARGE COMMUNICATION VIA SMS BETWEEN MEMBERS, IS REASON ENOUGH FOR ALL ARTISTS TO SIGN UP FOR artcom.gr.


(In particular, known artists who have incomplete CVs are given the possibility of direct communication with colleagues and collaborators, (who are registered at artcom). They only need to insert their photograph! This enables directors and casting directors to recall them at the given time and contact immediately without having to search for their phone numbers…)

Title_mark The Forum

The FORUM is the ‘‘heart” of artcom.gr.


 

Here’s where all the artistic activities of members are recorded, including re-issues from other sites and printed material…

 

<%= link_to_forum([5, 6, 3, 4, "b25", "b20", "b21", "b11", "b13", "b8"], :join => " – ") %> BRIEFINGS COLLABORATIONS EXCHANGE of OPINIONS, (“<%= link_to_forum(["b3382510"], :join => " – ") %>”) etc. is at the disposal of all members artcom.gr, FREE OF CHARGE!

 

It is here that a member can announce a prospective casting in order to find the most suitable people or an advertisement about seminars, courses or modeling. Subjects for discussion, proposals for collaborations, announcements of premieres, events, or exhibitions can all be posted and viewed by the entire artistic community!


An application which is currently under development, will allow members to receive the forum,publications via SMS on their mobiles.. They will not receive all the publications, but only those that they have previously selected. Hence, even people that do not use the Internet, (because they dislike it or it is inaccessible), will receive messages via mobile about a particular casting that concerns them only! Consequently, members are notified instantly and will not miss out on job prospects because of delays or ignorance…

Title_mark Free of Charge or Subscription?

At the discretion of the individual!

Artcom.gr offers the possibility to everyone in the artistic world to join and “exist” at its site as a member or to register FREE OF CHARGE.

Each free registration has benefits that at certain sites are expensive. Although the amount for the annual subscription may be very low, certain members may not have the financial resources required. This is the reason we have implemented a free registration – so they are not excluded to them from our dynamic artistic community….

Even, as the amount for the annual subscription is very low, for certain members this may not be financially feasible. For this reason , we have implemented a free registration , in order that we do not exclude to them from the dynamic, artistic community…

Artcom.gr, however, does not have the possibility of free benefits for all its applications. It is an expensive website with high specifications, server expenses, accommodation, and has full time staff.

The research, study and setting up began 3 years ago with a lot of enthusiasm and hard work. The inspirer and founder, (Director Takis Michail), knowing the artistic world and its needs, accomplished the creation of this specialized site with its endless capabilities.

The subscription fee therefore gives support and allows for further development so that we may become the absolute “tool” in finding work for us all…

The advantages of being a subscriberare very important for anyone in the artistic world. The differences are given in the corresponding tables for each group
