Shatner Launches Own Social NetworkPosted by T'Bonz - 09/03/10 at 01:03 pm
William Shatner is the spokesperson for a new Sci-Fi social network called MyOuterSpace.
MyOuterSpace seeks creative people with a passion for the arts, who are Sci-Fi, Horror or Fantasy fans, or who are looking for a career in those fields.
“Welcome to My Outer Space,” said Shatner in a video hosted on the site. “A brand-new community of sci-fi, horror and fantasy lovers. I’m William Shatner and I’d like to invite all of you who wish to act, perform, write, direct or compose music. From actor to animator, register now on the planet that hosts your specific talent. Join us today as we aim for the stars.”
There are twelve planets and starships on MyOuterSpace. The planets represent subcategories in the entertainment arts. The starships each represent a larger creative project.
One of the planets, Creatia, “hosts a creative environment for thinkers of all kinds like writers, directors and playwrights.” Fans are encouraged to “turn to Creatia’s Sci-Fi news section for the latest articles and videos; watch live interviews with legendary directors, peruse columns on the best writers in the business, and read the newest Sci-Fi book reviews.”
The Starship Aurora section explains that the “Captain and Crew aboard this Starship will be working on a hot major production together, and will be recruiting talent from the six United Planets. Submit your resume, if you can take the heat.”
John Eaves, concept designer and illustrator, designed all of the starships and all of the planets for the website.
