Semi-Finalist for The Winemakers Season 2

I'm a semi-finalist! Thanks to everyone who is sharing and continues to share the casting call video I submitted. In a better-than-coffee jolt I got the following message this morning:

Hi David

Your video submission has been selected as one of the five semi-finalist videos. We will announce the one video submission finalist on August 13th during a screening event in Sacramento, CA. Your attendance is not required. In the meantime, get as many people as you can to look at your video. Here are some ideas on how you can get a "buzz" circulating about your submission: (you should also post it to youtube for maximum coverage)

  • Contact your local radio stations
  • Contact your local TV stations
  • Contact national publications like Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast etc ...
  • Contact the wine and/or food writer of your local newspaper
  • Twitter, Facebook and blog about your submission

Good luck!

Thank you,

Casting Directer
The Winemakers, Season II

I've already started on this list of local journalism and F&W bloggers, but my effort is hugely and positively affected if you, dear reader, are closer to someone at one of these outlets who might find my journey of interest. Any help at all is sincerely appreciated. Thanks also for continuing to view and share the Winemakers Season 2 casting call video.
