MyStudio Partners With Legendary Back Stage to Bring Professional Quality Video Platform to Online Casting

Together and Provide Their Members With an Easy and Convenient Way to Showcase Talent!

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) - Studio One Media, Inc. ("Studio One") (OTCBB: SOMD) announced today that is has partnered with Back Stage, the entertainment industry's most recognized resource for real-time casting and audition information, acting advice, job listings, and entertainment news. Back Stage takes great pride in providing the most up-to-date technology to its members. By utilizing MyStudio's HD recording studios, Back Stage can now offer its members an easy and convenient way to create professional HD quality videos for their Multimedia Resumes, including performance and audition pieces for specific casting calls.

Back Stage actors, models, and performers who use MyStudio® will now be able to quickly and easily submit their Multimedia Resumes (enhanced with embedded MyStudio videos) with just a few clicks on their member account.

MyStudio also offers over 1,000 high-definition backgrounds, allowing users to pick an environment to best suit their needs; and Back Stage users can quickly customize their resumes to include multiple videos, allowing actors to present their pro-quality MyStudio videos to casting directors, producers, directors, and agents via Back Stage's searchable talent database and casting-notice application system.

"Every actor's online resume should feature at least one high-quality video, so casting directors will be able to get a good first impression of the actor before calling them in to audition. Reels of clips, monologue videos, videos highlighting different performance skills, and introductory interview-style videos can help to set a resume apart from the thousands of other resumes casting directors receive. We're seeing film, theatre, and TV productions asking actors to submit audition videos specific to their projects -- a videotaped audition using script sides or other materials and requirements tailored to the production's needs. Putting together a high-quality video resume can be expensive and time-consuming. However, with MyStudio everyone will have access to quality HD video, with professional sound and images and backgrounds, at a fraction of the usual cost. We are very excited for our users to start embedding their MyStudio videos onto their multimedia resumes on," stated Luke Crowe, National Casting Editor, Back Stage.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with a group as prestigious as Back Stage. For 50 years Back Stage has been recognized as one of the key leaders in the casting industry and our partnership will provide MyStudio members with exceptional acting and casting opportunities. The technologies developed by MyStudio combined with the variety and quality of casting opportunities offered by Back Stage can revolutionize the way casting is conducted," stated Larry Ryckman, founder and CEO of MyStudio, Inc.

MyStudio provides aspiring artists and entertainers with a cost-effective, professional quality platform to showcase their talents. Entertainers often pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for comparable professionally produced audio and video products. The HD virtual backgrounds, professional lighting and specially engineered sound cannot be replicated by users at home or outside a professional studio. Users can often afford to make numerous videos to showcase their talents and gain a significant advantage over video applications made at home.

Back Stage is owned by e5 Global Media, whose other entertainment and media publications include The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, Adweek, Mediaweek, Brandweek, Film Journal International, the Hollywood Creative Directory and Call Sheet.
