Yoostar announced Thursday a nine city U.S. tour during which the public will compete by performing in clips from major motion pictures using the Yoostar system. These performances, which place users inside famous scenes from Hollywood films, will be uploaded to Facebook and the Yoostar Web site for a panel of judges, along with everyday viewers, to see. Actor Jamie Kennedy will be one of the judges and will make select appearances during the tour. Winners will receive Yoostar systems and gifts from sponsors such as Coke Zero and L'Oreal Paris with the grand prize being a walk-on in a 2010 film from Lions Gate. The tour runs from September 17 to mid-November beginning in Boston and ending in Los Angeles.
Said Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, President and CEO, Yoostar Entertainment Group, "We want to help introduce the world to great, undiscovered comedic and dramatic talent across the country with the only technology that allows you to place yourself inside real films and act alongside real actors. Jamie Kennedy's career as an actor and improvisational comedian make him well-suited to help judge the enormous talent we expect to see nationwide."
