Be gentle--I'm new here.
I wanted to spread the word about Nextcat.com, an independent professional networking site dedicated to the global arts & entertainment industry.
Full disclosure: I am the editorial director at Nextcat (AKA "Copy Cat"), but also am a film critic, A&E reporter, and screenwriter/playwright/director.
That said, I couldn't pimp Nextcat if I didn't believe in it passionately. And apparently I'm not alone: so far, we have thousands of members in over 78 countries worldwide, including both A-list and aspiring talent & service people, making it easy to connect online with other filmmakers, directors, actors, photographers, editors, production, crew, models, writers, artists--you name it. Post or look for a job anywhere in the world (or just in the UK), connect with collaborators, start a blog, upload and pimp your newest project, list your upcoming events, post in Nexcat forums, and so much more.
Please check it out, sign up for a free profile today, and let us know what you think! If you like what you see, invite your fellow directors and arts & entertainment industry contacts to join you on Nextcat so we can keep this party going.
