Gay International Pageant – Prelim ends tonight (Sat 5/1)

Thank goodness for wifi at Club Basix.  I love it when a club lets it patrons take advantage of new technology.  I am sitting here listening to booming music while waiting for the pageant to start.  So I thought I would update the blog with some pictures and the latest video links.  Preliminary night is scheduled for three nights and tonight represents the last night of preliminary.  There were 11 boys and 3o  ladies as contestants.  The competition has been amazing and this is a great turnout for a pageant operating under a new name and new ownership.

Who would of though that the Midwest could hold such a fabulous pageant.  I have to admit, even though the city is small and has a very Midwest feel – it is quite nice out here.  Now only if there were more places to eat downtown around the hotel (within walking distance), I would be happy (but I digress).

Okay so I posted new trailer videos for everyone to watch.  Something for the guys, something for the girls and and some fabulous entertainment. (and as a side note – I look up and the county fire department is taking someone out of the club – too intoxicated, sick, too many roofies – who knows and I am not going to find out – and damn the night hasn’t even started yet).

So to watch the fabulous Pretty Belle, Dena Cass, Natasha Cass (former Miss Iowa USofA, Sierra Spaulding or Nova

Starr, check out this link.  There short clips but gives you an idea of what they performed last night.  To watch the video, click here to view the video.

Male pageant has always had a tough road to climb under the shadow of the girls.  But the constants this year are really shinning.  Mr. Gay International Xeus has come out with more outfits and costumes and an excellent selection of songs and routines complete with dancers.  To watch some of the guys and their talent numbers from friday night, click on this link.

And finally the ladies.  Sierra Spaulding is amazing to watch and she is truly a shining example of Miss Gay International.  Her energy and enthusiasm on the floor is infectious and will be a tough act to follow.  The winner of the pageant will have some big shoes to fill and Sierra has set a good example.  To watch some of the ladies as they performed some HOT talent numbers Friday night, click on this link.

I won’t be able to upload a lot of videos from Saturday night as I have to catch up on some rest (after the pageant Sunday – I have to drive to Dayton, OH to film a EOY contestant’s presentation video), but I will upload the folks who were selected for the top 5.  Good luck to all of the contestants.  Your hard work is definitely showing.

Stay tune for more preview videos from finals night later on in the week.  Also, when I return to Miami, I will update the pricing on the DVDs as well.

2010 Mr and Miss Gay International Pageant is underway

After a way too long  journey to the midwest, I finally got into the small town of Cedar Rapids to film the 2010 Mr. and Miss Gay International Pageant.  The pageant is owned and operated by the legendary Entertainer Dena Cass and is being held at Club Basix for the preliminary night events and at the Piano Bar for finals night.  I have to say I like the small intimate setting of Club Basix – the dance floor is a good size for a small pageant with plenty of good room to watch.  A small crowd of well wishers from all across the country was on hand to watch the contestants compete.  11 boys and 30 girls entered into the pageant – a tremendous effort by Dena in the first year of  reorganizing the international pageant.

Thursday night was the first night of the pageant – preliminary night.  Contestants were broken up into groups for evening gown, talent for the ladies and presentation for the guys.  Here are some preview videos for you to watch:

Miss Large and Lovely DVD available now!! – Congrats Desiree

2010 Miss Large and Lovely Desiree DeMornay

2010 Miss Large and Lovely Desiree DeMornay

As many of you know, we have been filming gay drag pageants for many many years. And over the years we have noticed that there are two areas of gay pageantry that get little attention – the Mr. side and the Plus girls. After watching and filming the 2010 Miss Large and Lovely pageant – I was reminded once again how amazingly talented, enthusiastic and energetic the plus community is and how this side of pageantry should not be ignored (kinda like the Mr. EOY contest last year really showed how passionate the Mr. gay side of the business can be).

I thoroughly had a great time at the Parliament House – the host of this year’s pageant (held on February 15th). April Fresh and Roseanee DeShanaro were the host charming the crowd as the pageant featured 9 fabulous contestants and a host of special guest entertainers. The contestants this year included: Ginger Minj!, Maya Andrews, Sherri Hart, London Taylor Douglas, Nikki Champagne, Leena Quizeen, Kamden Wells, Alexis De La Mer & Desiree DeMornay. It was a wide range of contestants who really brought it to the contest. Special guest entertainers included Tweeka Weed, Jocelyn Summers, Chi Chi La Lique, Darcel Stevens (who also hosted the Talent category), Geraldine Jones and Josephine Andrews.

If you like a good pageant and enjoy the energy and fun of the big girls, this is a DVD you don’t want to miss. You can buy it by visiting: www.clickclickexpose.com and click on the shopping button.

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 #3 – 8/9/09

Now that I have uploaded all 8 hours (2 cameras) of Sunday nights EOY pageant, it is time to edit.  I decided to edit live on our internet TV channel that you can get to from our website.  At 12:30pm – I did the first 2 hours of the pageant and right now I am doing the last 2 hours – which is talent, entertainment, farewell and crowning.  So if you read this blog now (its about 6:53pm EST on Sunday Aug 9th, go click on the live internet TV button from our home page and chat with your friends and enjoy the editing of the pageant.  After I finish this first draft of the edit, tomorrow I will go through all 4 hours, cut out the down time, add graphics, text and etc and finish up Sunday night’s video – hopefully, if all goes well I will be done tomorrow.

Lashawn Chanel as a boy in the closetball

Lashawn Chanel as a boy in the closetball

 

Pageant folks in the south know all about the closetballs – where you come out as a man in the presentation category and then return a hour later as a woman in evening gown and talent.  The transformations are exciting to watch and you really get to appreciate what drag is all about.  Well the 1st Annual Miami Closetball was held last month in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Lashawn Denne Chanel was crown the winner.  Mercedes Monroe was 1st runner up and Jazzlyln Sanchez was 2nd runner up.

I have finish the editing of this video which comes in at just over 2 hours and 5 minutes.  I am authoring the DVD as I write this (this pageant will be on 2 disks) and the entire process will be finished in the next couple of hours.  You can order the dvd via our Shopping Web Page.  I am also going to put up a video of one of the entertainers that was at the pageant – Tiona Love and interpersed through that video you will see the contestants that competed.  The video will be up on our video sharing website: Planet Q TV.

Enjoy the dvd, the preview trailer and this year’s closetball from Miami.

Update News for EOY

Update News for EOY

Hey pageant fans…time to call it a night – wanted to give a quick update on what was accomplished today.

1) Miami International Closetball – 3 hours of video content was uploaded to the editing workstation. Will begin editing video tomorrow (Saturday).

2) EOY 2009 – 4 hours of video content (Sunday Night Camera 1) was uploaded to the editing workstation. Will upoload 4 hours of camera 2 tomorrow after I finish editing Miami Intl Closetball – but if the editing takes me longer than 5 hours – I may defer to Sunday.

3) I replaced the two EOY preview videos on Planet Q TV. I noticed the older videos were showing some signs of playback issues (slight stuttering issue) so I replaced it with a higher quality .flv file. Plays back beautiful now.

4) I updated the shopping page on Click Click Expose. Retail price changes go into effect tomorrow for all EOY 2009 products.

I think that’s it. Have a great weekend everyone.

Congratulations Leah Halston – Miss Platinum Gem City 2009

It’s nice to be in a city that is not too big, not too crowded and I can get through airport security in 5 minutes instead of 45 minutes.  I am sitting in the Columbus, OH airport waiting to go back to Miami and I have forgotten how nice it is to be in a quiet city.  Yesterday coming back from filming a wedding just north of Ft. Lauderdale – I was sitting in traffic for 45 minutes – 5 lanes stacked at 11:45 at night – ONLY IN MIAMI!!

Anyway, I want to say congratulations to Leah Halston for winning this year’s Miss Platinum Gem City Pageant.  Tionna Luv came in as runner up.  It appeared that Leah was the crowd favorite at the pageant that was held at the Axis Club – a nice small club in the heart of the restaurant club district (at least it seemed like it) – very gay friendly – why can’t we have that in Miami – you would think!!

Pictures and a preview trailer will follow once I get back and can upload the footage I shot.  BIG PROPS TO BAR MANAGER (and jack of trades Robby) – who was relentless all night in trying to solve why I wasn’t getting any audio from the DJ booth.  Club owners should really spend just a little extra money to have the right set of mixers and amps in their booths – I never understood why DJs get shorted out in this area – especially when these clubs rent out their places for shows and other events.  Patching things all over the place is not the way to go – but hey what can you do.  BUT ROBBY was awesome – he figured it out even while the show was going on and even while he had to tend to his bar duties.

I also want to say thank you to the entire Platinum Gem family who was very gracious and accomodating.  So congratulations Leah on your win and on Tionna on your placement.  More coming soon.

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.

Thomas
