GotCast Plans Spinoff Website For Social Media Contests

Santa Monica-based GotCast, the online casting site run by Alec Shankman, told its users today that it is gearing up to launch a new, spin-off website for its social media contest platform. GotCast said the platform--MediaBlastr--is the softare it uses to power its casting community on GotCast, as well as its various social media contests it has been running for TV networks and brand clients. No other details of the new effort were announced by the company. GotCast allows casting agents to post casting calls, and allows any Internet user to respond with a portfolio and other information.
