Oh happy day
Just finished up a photo shoot in down town lex. It's great adding people to the VisionPortfolio site. Vision-Resume is getting its day in the sun this coming Tuesday. We will be doing the first round of advertising for it. I think we are all pretty excited about that. I am also putting the finishing touches on the Prehistoric Kiosk. That makes me very very happy. - J

VisionPortfolio VS. Modeling Agencies
Vision-Resume is now looking to model agencies for support. After looking at competing products we have come to the conclusion that Vision-Resume is a superior format for viewing/browsing/finding models, actors and just about anyone interested in the talent industry. It seems that if a person is actually interested in becoming a model, they have to submit pictures and pending approval, may or may not become affiliated with an agency or even considered for jobs. One such site that does this is Model Scouts. We at Vision-Resume found this to be awful and rather biased. We thought that the client should have the final vote on who to be their model/spokesperson/actor etc. SO our answer is VisionPortfolio. VisionPortfolio creates a portfolio website for the model. The site will have their measurements, information, schedules, pictures and whatever else the model might like to include. The great part is that it is fully editable all of the time. Our product also gives the model the edge when they want to self promote. Since it is a website, they can send the link to anyone. There isn't any hard addresses to remember or logins that need to be provided. Just one easy address to send out! Another great feature to VisionPortfolio is that we are building a community. When a model starts a portfolio she is entering a database of talent. This database will be searchable by top modeling agencies or even clients. This truly gives the model the upper hand, and gives them more work to choose from.
Search Engine OPTIMIZATION
Today I'm looking at ways of search engine optimization as well as ways of submitting sites to search engines. This is quite a task and there doesn't seem to be a clean cut way to go about doing it. I have found some really great resources on the matter, but even with these resources it still remains a murky subject. One good site for search engine submission is Submit Express. This site claims to submit your url to 40 search engines for free. They even have a full list of the search engines that they list to. Hopefully in the near future I can have a web "how-to" in the tutorial section that will help to further the knowledge of the subject.
I began work on the kiosk for the South Central Cultural Center today. This kiosk is supposed to provide an interactive source of information about Primitive Humans in the Barrens. I have flow charted the project and now I'm assembling the materials to populate the presentation. The layout is big and chunky, but is required for the touch screen controls. Click the link to check it out. PREHISTORIC MAN
Also a great site to check out is http://www.becominghuman.org (Becoming Human.org) This site is a great example of what I hope the kiosk will become.
I have an absolute cornucopia of things going on right now. I've just begun work for the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center in Glasgow, Kentucky. I will be constructing wall sized photos and standup figurines as well as help completing various exhibits. Aside from exhibit conceptualization, I will also be constructing interactive kiosk to be spread through out the museum
