Fred Vidal, PhD Thinks About Deleting His Myspace.com Account after Hundreds of Members of CSA Refused to Put Him On File!
May 27, 2009
Hundreds of headshots (blackcards) with a link to his Online Resume on the Screen Actors Guild resume sent to the Members of the Casting Society of America (CSA) and only one casting director called Fred to tell him he put him on file then never called back: is this the result of a too glam image because of the involvement of Fred Vidal career on Myspace?
Obviously, the membership site did not help the actor last month by refusing his viral marketing campaign for the reason that he is a celebrity. A celebrity that is never interviewed on TV and with no photo at all in the newspapers and magazines! What does that mean? That myspace.com succeeded to give a fragile fame to the Hollywood actor and strategist without helping him to do his breakthrough in the media.
A new campaign will beggin June 1st with the little sister of the BLACK CARD, The WHITE CARD, a green light for Fred’s work on TV sets and Movie shooting days! It’s the objective synchronized with the development and the pre-production of THE MAN WITH THE VELVET EYES with a new episode on WordPress tomorrow Thursday, Part 2 of the Screenplay.
Manipulation or not, boycott certainly not, mistake with a coordination, who knows? The non-reply of the members of the CSA is a bad sign for the big and small screens community, maybe connected to the SAG crisis and previously the screenwriters strike, and something that is not respecting the rules. It is the reason why Fred will write to this important organization to let them know that dysfunctional reality. Normally, for regular mailings by actors, many casting directors reply and put them on file for possible casting, not this time!!
Fred Vidal’s WHITE CARD (a super-Internet marketing tool without Myspace but Fred Vidal University) will be the next Win-Win message to CSA people before to understand that they prevent him to find daily jobs. We suppose that this time some desktops will accept the name and the talent.
Fred Vidal, PhD will inform the Screen Actors Guild of the problem created by the CSA silence bcause other actors can also be interested to know what can happen when you are too much Myspace.
Fred Vidal is about to criticize Myspace decision to refuse his ad conceived to reinforce his image by sending to the owners a letter aslking for explanations.

“I was checking my messages on MySpace ant all at once, I think about the number of my friends because I must stop sending invitations when I will have 3,000 friends in order to know all these people better, right? 3,000!! I neever had so many friends in my life. And then, I see that it’s Martin Scorsese who accepted my invitation and becomes my friend #2,900 because I have with him 2,900 friends!! It was Saturday, November 22, 2008. I just need 100 more friends and with them and all the other great friends who gave me their friendship, we’re going to communicate about Martin Filmography and Career, through FRED VIDAL UNIVERSITY, during this Thanksgiving week.
