New videos uploaded on Planet Q TV – new website look coming soon!!

Now that I am done editing two of our biggest pageants for the year, it is now time to settle down on the other portions of our family of multi-media websites. 

Planet Q TV

Planet Q TV

I uploaded 12 new videos on Planet Q TV – representing Mr. EOY, Miss EOY and Mr and Miss International and International Plus.  When you get a chance, take a look at Skyler Styles (contestant – presentation category – Mr. EOY), Tasha Cole (Entertainer for EOY 08 – Finals Night), Sabin (talent category – prelim night – EOY 08), Octavius Rashad (Finalist – talent category – Mr. International), Mya Douglas (Entertainer for EOY 08), Marsean Devine (Finalist – talent category – Mr. International), The Lady Angelica and Anatasia Beaverhausen (Entertainers for Mr/Miss International), Kitty Litter (Entertainer for Mr/Miss International), Dashe Desmond Rose (talent category – prelim night – EOY 08), Chasity St Cartier (contestant – talent category – Miss International Plus), Adonis Diamond (Finalist – talent category – Mr. International) and Camille Simpson (talent category – prelim night – EOY 08)…  woa…yeah I was on a roll so I thought I would throw some videos out there.

Also, for those of you who have been with us for years – it’s coming – yes another website design change

Click Click Expose - Our New Company Logo

Click Click Expose "New Logo"

 for Click Click Expose.  I know what you are thinking – NOT AGAIN.  This time however will be different, a more simplified website with a much better polished look – many people have told us they like our website but many have told us that it is extremely overwhelming and has so much information that it is hard to navigate and sometimes confusing.  So we are going to simplify things and polish things up.  We think of Click Click Expose as a “brand” especially as it relates to the pageantry community – but we are more than just pageants and pageant videos.  We want to be one of your gay multi-media destination sites of choice.  So rather its gay videos on our video sharing website “Planet Q TV,” whether its the nation’s only online digital download pageant pay per view service, internet radio, blogging or podcasting – we hope you will find something of interest that will keep you coming back for more.  So with any brand, their needs to be a “logo” that signifies the brand.  We really haven’t had that in the past but now we do thanks to our graphics and animation artist Eric who is working with us on the new website look.  The new website look should be up in about a couple of weeks.  We are excited about it and think you will be surprise – it will be our best look ever.

If you are look for Entertainer of the Year on pay per view (the miss division) – it will be up in about 1 week.  The Mr. EOY and all of the International pageants are up now online.

That’s it for now.  More coming soon.

DVD Editing Update #4 – EOY and International Week 2008

You ever have that feeling when you just want to throw your computer out a 5 story building?  There is nothing like pushing the limits of your computer and I have definitely done that with finishing up with International Week.  For those of you who was at the International Week pageant on Saturday, you know that was a lonnnggg night because the Plus competition was also with the prelim competition of the Mr and Miss.  Well I had over 5 1/2 hours on the timeline with 3 cameras and tons of color correction that eats up more hard drive space than termites eat wood.  I never thought I would be saying that 600gb of hard drive space is not enough but I think I would be happy with a couple of terrabytes – but I digress. 

For the news you want to hear….I am one day ahead of schedule and I should be finished with the DVD encoding for Plus competition within a couple of hours today (Saturday).  I have finished prelim of Mr. and Miss so the entire Mr. and Miss competition is now completed.  Later on this evening I will prepare everyone’s order who pre-ordered a copy and it will go in the mail on Monday (sorry no mail delivery on Sunday).  Everything will go by USPS priority mail so you should get it in 2 to 3 days.  We are happy with the look of the video – The Center Stage Theatre is a BEAUTIFUL place to film so the quality of the video in our opinion is excellent – we also are doing some new things with DVD menus and DVD packaging that we think you will like – nothing major but its the little things that we hope make a difference.

EOY is still on schedule for next week so EOY fans hang in there – you are next.

More news to come soon.

DVD Editing Update #2 – EOY and International Week 2008

Here is some updated information as of Wednesday Aug. 6th.

1)  Mr. and Miss International Finals night is done.  DVD prep and duplication will occur this weekend.  If you ordered finals night only, it will go in the mail on Monday August 11th.

2)  I am currently uploading all cameras for Friday and Saturday night (Mr/Miss Prelim and Plus competition).  I will work on the Plus competition next and then the prelim for Mr/Miss.

3)  Trailer for Finals night of Mr/Miss International should be up by next week.  Sorry for the delay.

4)  EOY editing begins next week.  If you were a constestant and you have the actual video for your presentation and/or talent and you want that original footage included in the final DVD, please email us at: ccevideo@empirevideoproductions.com or give us a call at: 305-695-0095 so I can give you instructions on where to send the video.

5)  If you attempted to get on Planet Q TV within the last couple of hours, the database server was down.  That is why you did not see the home page.  The server has been restarted and all is well now.  Make sure you check out the trailers for EOY and International Week – also check out the new videos uploaded by one of our content producers – Drag Queen Posse.

6)  There are 3 customers out there who still need to call our office to confirm their order they placed with us at the night of EOY.  I have emailed each of you.  Please give us a call or email us or we can not process your order.

That’s it for now pageant fans.  More coming soon.

DVD Editing update #1 – EOY and International Week 2008

Hey everyone,

Here is a quick update on a variety of things concerning our most recent filming productions.  Things are pretty hectic around here as I am trying to update the new pageant pay per view site, upload hours upon hours of video clips, modify the website, put together orders and process orders.  It’s crazy…..but here we go:

1)  The pre-order special has ended for EOY videotapes.  It ran longer than expected as I did not have a chance to update the website – so for all of you people who ordered in the last 3 days – Merry Christmas (LOL – just kidding)  – glad you were able to take advantage of the pre-order.  I still have 4 people who ordered at EOY this year with Blossom – your orders have not been processed for various reasons – you will still get the pre-order special as soon as we clear up your payment questions;

2)  I am about 3 hours away from the first draft of Finals night Mr. and Miss International Week.  This was a 3 camera shoot so uploading 15 hours of video for one night took some time.  Then I have to sync all cameras together from all tapes (so many tapes) and then sit through the first viewing of the pageant.  I am almost done with that.  Then I will go through and edit the tape down, add in the names and effects, put some special backgrouds in, color correct some camera shots and put the 2nd draft together.  I hope to have that done by Sunday.  Saturday I am filming a wedding so I won’t be editing all day Saturday.

3)  I have started uploading and capturing Thursday night and Friday night of EOY.  Adrian will be editing parts of EOY starting with the Mr. Competition.  I still have to drop the 2nd camera down but the 1st camera is almost complete.  I will have that done within the hour.

4)  Many of you have already seen the preview clips of International Week and EOY.  But if you haven’t, you can check them out at our all gay video sharing website called Planet Q TV.  We hope you enjoy them!!

5)  The Pageant Soup Podcast Show was cancelled today as well as the other updates to the Podcast network as I am too swamped to do the show today.  The network will resume its normal programming next week.  We are looking forward to inviting Nina West & Savion Simpson Black on the show.  Be sure to check out episode #41 of the Pageant Soup Podcast Show as we talked to Danille Revlon who won the Miss International Plus competition.

6)  If you ordered DVDs from us in the last couple of days not related to EOY, your order will go in the mail tomorrow.  Sorry for the delay.

That’s it for now.  I am off to finish the first draft of International Week.  Everyone have a great day and thanks for your continued support.
