EOY 2009 DVDs ship today!!

Bianca Nicole - National Entertainer of the Year, 2009

Bianca Nicole - National Entertainer of the Year, 2009

Hey pageant fans,

It’s finally over (LOL).  The EOY DVDs are finished, the covers and labels made and the packages put together.  Almost all of the packages went in the mail today via USPS priority mail (2 to 3 days from Miami depending on what part of the country you are in).  If you had a mixed order (you ordered EOY and another pageant like International Week 2009) – your order has been completed and will go in the mail tomorrow.

I want to thank everyone for their patience while we put this year’s DVD together.  If you came by Click Click Expose TV to watch the live editing session, I hope you had fun and got to see a sneak peak of the video and some of the time it takes to put together a multi-camera DVD.  I hope to have more of that in the future.

If you have any questions, comments or questions about your DVD – we will be closed tomorrow and Thursday but I will answer any emails I get later on in the day.  If you are in Atlanta this coming weekend, stop by Club 708 and say hi – we will be  filming the Miss Utopia pageant.

Congrats Bianca and Xavier – have a fantastic year and everyone, I hope you enjoy your DVDs.

EOY Update #4 – 8/10/09 – New videos uploaded

Bianca Nicole at EOY 2009 - Talent Competition

Bianca Nicole at EOY 2009 - Talent Competition

Hey pageant fans,

Well after about 8 hours, I have finished with EOY DVD for Sunday night only.  I finished the first draft yesterday combining the two cameras together into one video (some of you saw the process yesterday as I broadcasted live on our internet TV channel).  Today, I went through the 4 hour video and took out all of the down time, talking in between categories etc.  Then I had to put in the names for all of the contestants for both Evening Gown and Talent and then create boards for all of the guest entertainers.  After that, I had to fix some audio anomalies (so annoying) and then I created the intro video montage before the actual pageant started.

I am pretty much done.  I haven’t created the DVD yet – I am still debating whether I am going to put in CG names for each contestant as they were announced at the beginning of the pageant (I am still waiting for a list of the contestant names and spellings) but other than that, I am finish.

Tomorrow, I will upload 10 hours worth of video (2 cameras for Saturday’s show) and then start that editing on Wednesday.  Unfortunately, since it takes 10 hours to move video to the computer – that will take up all of my day so I can’t really edit until Wed.

I posted 4 new videos on Planet Q TV all around what happened on Sunday night + I posted the presentation video we created for Xavier Cole for the men’s competition.  We hope you like the videos.  Well I am calling it a day.  Enjoy…until tomorrow…have a great week.

EOY Update #1 – 8/7/09

Sorry to all of our readers of this blog – the next few weeks are going to be full of pageant news and Entertainer of the Year news but I will try to mix it up.

Bianca Nicole - Entertainer of the Year, FI 2009 Winner

Bianca Nicole - Entertainer of the Year, FI 2009 Winner

1.  First I want to say congratulations to Bianca Nicole and Xavier Valentino Litter for winning this year’s EOY competition.  It was another fun year and fun pageant to watch.  Eric took pictures at Finals Night and I will have some of them up in a couple of days.

2.  Before I can start working on the EOY pageant DVD, I have to complete some projects that are on my desk prior to EOY.  Miami International Closetball fans – we haven’t forgotten about you.  I am capturing that video right now as I write this.  My goal is to finish that pageant by Saturday.  Congratulations to Lashawn Denne Chanel for winning this 1st annual pageant held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

3.  We are also in the process of completing a major duplication request (500 DVDs) along with a redesign of our corporate website: www.empirevideoproductions.com and some changes have to be made to the International Week 2009 DVD.  Needless to say, this week has been hectic.

4.  We had a great time meeting our fans and friends at EOY this year.  Thanks to all those who came to say hi and chat with us.  It is great talking to all of our supporters as we are always striving to make things better.

5.  Some people have asked if I am going to do a preview trailer for Saturday and Sunday nite.  The answer is yes – as soon as I have captured all of the video – I will knock out a couple of trailers to watch.  All preview trailers will only be on our video sharing website: www.planetq.tv.  I will not have it up on You Tube until much later on this month.  Head to our website:  www.clickclickexpose.com and click on the button that says Planet Q TV – its our own video sharing website designed specifically for the gay and lesbian community.

6.  I have not taken down the pre-order special that is on our website.  Prices will go back up by $10 to $15 so if you haven’t order yet, do it now.  When I get a free moment, I will update the website and prices will go back up to our normal retail level.

7. CONTESTANTS – If you want your presentation video in the DVD – you must mail it to me this week.  When I start the editing next week, if I don’t have the DVD – it will not be included in the final product.

8.  WE HAVE WON OUR 3RD PRESENTATION VIDEO CATEGORY.  As you know (or may not know) – we have done presentation videos for contestants who desire our service.  Shae Shae LaReese and DeeRanged have used our presentation videos and they have won their respective pageants and/or categories.  We are proud that we did Xavier Cole’s video this year and while he was 1st runner up – he did win the presentation category.  We are 3 for 3 – woohoo – way to go Xavier – good job.

9.  That’s it for now.  Look for a new update in a couple of days.  I won’t be starting on EOY until probably Monday.  Any questions, just let us know – shoot me an email: ccevideo@empirevideoproductions.com or give us a call: 305-695-0095.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND and thanks for your continued support.

Wow…what a night at J’s Bar

So much talent up there in Ft. Lauderdale – if you did not come in person or did not see the live broadcast, you missed a night of some fabulous live singing – as we broadcasted live the finals of Karaoke Idol at J’s Bar in Ft. Lauderdale.  I really enjoyed myself, the staff was great and the contestants were absolutely wonderful.  Since I didn’t know what to expect tonight, our broadcast was strictly a live event – I did not drop it to tape but the bar wants to do it again in 3 months and we will be there. 

A special shout out to Manager Christina and Shannon for all of their help tonight, to my pageant friends who came by to say hi (Kennedy you never cease to amaze me!!), to the emcee (sorry..its late and for the life of me I can’t remember your name) and to the judges who had a tough time tonight choosing a winner – you guys and gals were great.  The crowd was super friendly and I definitely see why J’s Bar is a great place to have a drink, sit down with friends and have fun.  We hope to do more things with them in the future.

Time to call it night but I had to get on here and tell everyone how wonderful the night was.  Congrats to everyone who participated and congrats to the winner.  Until next time…sing your heart out….

DVD prices have been lower & some other news….

Hey everybody,

I have been away from the blog for far too long.  I promise to change that – things have been pretty crazy around here as we attempt to launch some new things.  So here is a quick rundown if you have been away from the website:

1)  I have gone through and lower many of the prices on our pageant DVDs.  Many are now only $20 + tax & shipping and handling.  I also combined some pageants making them into combos and re-adjusted a few others.  It has always been a philosophy of mine to keep our prices reasonable.  There are so many pageant fans out there but I know that times are tough and everyone can’t keep dropping $50 or more on pageant DVDs.  Hopefully our prices are reasonable and will encourage people TO BUY the official copy.

2)  We kicked off our Live Internet TV with a broadcast of the 2009 Miss Florida USofA Classic pageant.  It turned out to be a great success and a lot of fun.  The chat room was opened while we were showing the pageant and I think everyone who watched had a great time.  If you made a donation, THANK YOU!!  Your donations will help keep this endeavor going.  Next up – 2009 Mr. and Miss Dumarr International – showing live on Thursday April 9th at 8pm and 10pm and again on Sunday April 12th at 8pm and 10pm.  HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US!!

3)  2009 Mr. and Miss Dumarr has been added to the pageant pay per view along with fixing the problem with the 2009 Miss Florida USofA.  Also 2009 South Florida International Closet Ball has been added as well.  Remember you can rent for 2 days or buy the digital download to play on your computer.  It is simple and easy and a little cheaper than buying the DVD and you get to watch it immediately.  More videos coming soon.

4)  In 1 month, we will be offering DJ services to our list of video, post-production, audio-production and blogging services.  If you are in need of DJ services for your pageant, birthday party or other event – let us know – we can assist.  We will also be offering audio services for corporate and presentation events as well.  Don’t let the hotels or other companies charge you high prices to rent audio equipment, speakers, microphones, etc – we can do it for you.  Just another value service we are bringing to our community.

5)  New videos on Planet Q TV have been added.  Make sure you check it out.  Just Like Judy is the new music video from Darren Stewart-Jones – check it out.  Drag Queen Posse is always up to their crazy antics with a new video called Twisted Nights at Universal.  Queer Channel TV has the sexy 2009 pool party sleezy awards and a cute look at “Oscar Glam” and Twist Everything suprises his partner (that’ s me) with a trip to the Renaissance Festival.  Make sure you check out all of the videos at: www.planetq.tv.   You can also get to it from our home page at: www.clickclickexpose.com.

Well that’s about it for now.  More things will be coming soon so stay on the lookout.  And as always, thanks for your continued support.  Have a great weekend.

We’re Back + Can’t get enough of Obama’s win

We are back (well we really never left) but we moved our office to its final location (hurray) and now that we are all settled – we will get back to updating the podcast every week, continue to work on adding more pageant videos to the pay per view and starting back our Talk Mess with Adrian and Thomas podcast show again (we stopped it for a while – but now we will start it up again).

My mom sent me this nice picture highlight of Obama’s win on election night and I thought I would share it with you guys.  It still amazes me everytime I see him hold a press conference to announce his team or see him in pictures at the White House (what a site) – anyway – enjoy the pictures and more blogs coming soon.  Thanks for being patient while we got things situated.

What’s new on Planet Q TV – Homo Hip Hop and other videos

Greetings Planet Q TV Fans,

Every Thursday I try to do a major update to our family of websites and lately we have been behind as we prepare to move to a new office.  But alas, the update is finish (the move is not) and we have a lot of new videos to showcase on Planet Q TV this week.

 

 

In a couple of weeks, we hope to be showcasing new videos from “Out At The Center” – a video production series from the team at the LGBT community center in New York City and the TV trailer for Urban Raiders – the upcoming Hip Hop Reality TV show.

I am also placing a renew interest in Homo Hip Hop – the gay hip hop sub culture that exist in our

Granthm - Gay Hip Hop Artist

Granthm - Gay Hip Hop Artist

community unknown to many music fans.  If you are a rap or hip hop fan, then know that there are some great gay artist out there that are producing some fantastic music.  To listen to one artist, subscribe to the Click Click Expose Podcast Network (Click Here) – and listen to artist Granthm. 

We will be showcasing his music for the next few weeks.  I also uploaded some new videos courtesy of You Tube on gay rapper Soce, an interview with Deadlee and gay rapper QBoy from the UK.
For our lesbian fans….you have not been left out (and come on guys – it won’t kill you to watch a video with girls in it) – we are featuring a fantastic video podcast show called “U People TV” from director Hanifah Walidah and her partner.  We have a couple of their podcast shows up, her music video and their latest podcast show “I heart Brooklyn Girls” – episode number 46.
Our video content producer “Drag Queen Posse” has uploaded several new videos including Part 1 and Part 2 of the Azucar Awards and a dreamgirl revue on stage.

 

Are you a Lady Gaga fan?  Check out her video “Just Dance” along with some behind the scene footage that is fun to watch.  Lady Gaga is courtesy of Interscope Records. 

Finally I had a chance to email chat with a viewer who is running a science video sharing website who uploaded an interesting animation video on HIV replication for all you medical and science nerds (just kidding) – the video is quite interesting.

Lastly, if you are a gay pageant fan – then the team over at Click Click Expose  has filmed their last major pageant for the 2008 year which was Missouri Entertainer of the Year Preliminary pageant held in St. Louis, MO.  We have preview videos from both Friday and Saturday night and Adrian (with his Flip Phone in had) did a behind the scenes look at the pageant.

So much to watch…we hope you find something you like.  Remember, share your videos, join our community and let us know what you think as we provide the best place to find LGBT videos from all over the world.

Happy Viewing!!!

Thomas (Video Content Producer – Click Click Expose)

Pageant Soup Podcast Show blog

Hey pageant fans,

The Pageant Soup Podcast Show blog will be wrapped into the Click Click Expose blog for the remainder of the show.  You can still view the old post by visiting this link.

Remember their is no show on Thursday Sept. 11th.  Our last show is on Sept. 18th and covers a topic that everyone has an opinion on: What exactly is female impersonation and can it be achieved through transformation or body augmentation? The show will be 1 hour long and will cover everything from what drag use to be, what drag is now, is being transgendered truly female impersonation, pageant system requirements and limitations, etc, etc.  We want your opinions, your thoughts and your comments (and I know they are out there – let the debate begin). If you want to be a guest on this issue, please contact me – I would love to have you on.  It’s going to be a great discussion.  That’s Thursday Sept 18th at 7 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Thanks and happy listening!!

What do you think of the new website?

I thought I take a break from editing a wedding video to let you guys and gals know that the new Click Click Expose website is up and running.  I have to do some minor tweeks and updates but the for the most part the new site and the new look is now live.  Let us know (or better yet let me know) what you think of the site.  With the help of our graphics artist Eric, our new site was built from the ground up (sort of speak) in HTML and Javascript.  Normally, in the past we have built websites using programs designed for that – but with every program comes limitations on what you can do and sometimes these programs force a look on you that you can’t escape (especially if you are not the world’s best web site designer).  This time around, the goal was to build an entirely new website using basic HTML and Javascript.  Can you say pain in the ass – reading lines and lines of code can be daunting – that is why I am not entierely finished but I hope you like it.

We try to make things a lot simplier and easier for everybody with the goal of making it easier to get to the specific content you are looking for.  Did we do it?  Is it easier to find what you want or do you like the old design better?   I need your feedback so I can keep the website the best way possible.  So take a second, stop watching our videos and listening to the podcast shows (LOL) and tell us if you like the new site or the old site better and any suggestions on how we can improve for you.  Thanks in advance for letting us know and enjoy the new look of Click Click Expose.

Thomas
