“New Stage” is a platform that helps producers and event organizers find actors and artists. With this platform, customers and performers no longer need mediators to connect with each other. Thanks to “New Stage,” one does not only save on mediation services, but also benefits from greater performer loyalty.
Part of the platform’s audience are people who are used to getting things done through agents and by phone, which is why they need a user-friendly interface. We have created a visual embodiment of the platform and worked on the UX/ UI design to help even inexperienced users find their way around the platform and its many features.
the main page
The page consists of two sections. The first and main one is where the searching takes place. In that section, actors and artists can find projects with open auditions and sign up for them. The second section contains news about movies and upcoming events.
Choosing a role
The user needs to sign up and select a role. There are 4 roles to choose from: a producer, an organizer, an actor, or an artist. Next, the user needs to fill out a form that will be visible to others. Producers and organizers indicate the projects they have been involved in.
For those who are going to use the platform there is an option of switching between the roles. When choosing a new role, the user will need to fill out a new form. If at some point the user changes their mind about a chosen role, they can hide the form to stop receiving offers.
Actors and artists add information about their professional experiences: the form serves as a replacement for audition tapes and portfolios.
Responses and offers
In order to find performers for a project, the customer needs to create a page and describe the movie or event in detail. After that, they will be able to invite actors to perform roles or artists as part of the team.
The client got a more convenient and quicker tool for reputation management and result viewing. Moreover, the team stopped wasting time on monthly data collection.
With the tool, it now only takes an hour of time to prepare an analysis, and it's easier for companies to get important information.
The performer’s schedule
The customer can see when a performer is free for an audition and book a date. On top of that, the performer can choose to hide the form at any time to stop receiving offers.
Location search is a separate section for renting premises for events and filming. It can be accessed through both “New Stage. Movies” and “New stage. Events.”
In this section, an organizer can rent a country house for a party, and a producer can find a particular apartment to film a TV show in.
In 10–15 minutes, one can sign up, create a project or fill out a form, and find the right people. The great thing about the platform is that the customer will know when a performer is busy even before reaching out to them, and the performer can thus limit incoming offers at an inconvenient time.
As a result, finding performers has never been easier, with no time, effort and resources wasted on both sides.
