The Skim: Stageme is a startup that blends tech and entertainment. This platform allows you to watch the best talent from around the world.
In a world where humans attention spans are shorter than goldfish it’s easy to get distracted. It’s especially easy to get inundated with watered down content.
In an article by USA Today, 2006: “The average 1970s city dweller was exposed to 500 to 2,000 ad messages a day, [J.Walker] Smith says. Now, it’s 3,000 to 5,000.”
The same quote was on CBS News. Magazine Engagement, 2006: “All this means that the average person now sees over 3,000 advertising messages a day.” Regardless of if it’s 3,000 or 5,000 that’s simply too much information to process. To be honest, I’m sick of the cat videos, the damn Daniels and the what color is this dress. I don’t want to sound pretentious but I think i’m better than that at this juncture in my life. I want valuable content.
“Performers give us moments of joy, chills up our spines and escapism when this world gets too much. It’s because of these moments and those that create them, that we created a platform only for performances.”
Claire explained it best. She said, “there are a lot of videos of people giving motivational speeches and product launches, but there is only one Ted Talks, Ted has some of the highest quality content out there. We are positioning ourselves to solely provide that quality of content of the world’s best performers.” I think of them as the Netflix of the most talented people.
Currently the site is populated with mostly dancers that perform styles I had never heard of and to be completely honest, wasn’t interested in at all. That is until I watched it for myself. But when you watch a video like this, how can you not stay tuned.
Just through watching Stageme videos I’ve learned so much about an art form I didn’t even know existed. For instance all of these are dance styles. How many have you heard of?
Stageme plans to enter into other genres of performance as the platform develops such as rap, card tricks and other acts you might find on Venice Beach or an awesome halftime show performance. Until then, they’re happy starting off with dance.
