Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Before I get to your tip, a couple of reminders and announcements.

First, I’m giving away a copy of Exotic World and the Burlesque Revival, just go to my review and leave a comment. I’l pick a winner at random on Wednesday morning.

Second, applications to the first ever Mini BurlExpo close on Saturday! It’s going to be a fun and relaxed weekend. Join us in July!

And now, your tip:

Create info sheets for each of your acts.

It will make your life so much easier when submitting to festivals or working with a producer. I keep these files handy on my computer and then cut & paste the necessary information as needed. For each act I have the name, a link to the video, the song title, artist and length, a basic introduction, a short description, set up and clean up, lighting and sound notes, and anything else important.

I also have another sheet with my performer bio in various common lengths (50 words, 500 characters, 200 words, &c.). If you’re really organized, also have an mp3 of each song and promo photos in the same folder with the act info and the bio. Everything you need in one place!
