Boot Camp Is Here!
It's Boot Camp time! Results are out, visit us on Facebook (Gem Vote or Botswana Gemstonesmtm) and go through our posts to find out who is and who out!
Remember, if you auditioned in Jwaneng, Phikwe, Palapye and Francistown, or in Gaborone recently (end of March and April), your results are not yet out. Get your family and friends to keep voting for you by watching your videos on YouTube. Your results will be out on Facebook May 18, 2012.
DANGER ZONE & ELIMINATIONS
If you are going to boot camp and all your audition videos have less than 1000 views, be warned -- YOU COULD BE ELIMINATED AT BOOT CAMP! People will be eliminated at boot camp and only 10 people per category will make it to the semi-finals. Only contestants with 1000 views or more are SAFE at Boot Camp!
Studio Audience Voting!
Members of the public are invited to attend boot camp to come and watch and critic the contestants. All events are held at President Hotel in the Main Mall. P50 gets you in and gives you the power to vote!
New York or Gaborone? It's All Up To You!
If your friends haven't been voting for you on debuTV.com and YouTube by watching your videos, then there is no time like now, to get to start watching your videos. Remember, each VIEW on debuTV.com or YouTube is a VOTE.
Persistence is just as important-if not more important-than talent in Hollywood. It can take years before you're discovered or get your big break, and some Hollywood hopefuls will hold out for decades until they make it. When asked about his struggle to the top, actor, Harrison Ford once said that he knew he would eventually make it if he could "just outlast the competition."
So, if you didn't make boot camp, or you got eliminated at boot camp, or the semi-finals, or finals, you can still make it into the National Team selection. Here is how:
If you have 1000 views or more before 8pm Friday May 25th (Hollywood Night) in one of your audition videos, you are safe and guaranteed a place in the semi-finals.
If you have 2000 views or more by 8pm on June 01 (Hollywood Night), you are safe and guaranteed a place in the finals.
But if you have 3000 views or more by 8pm June 01, you are safe and guaranteed a place in the National Team Selection. One of the representatives in the National Team, will win the 'Experience of a lifetime' at IMTA and a chance to represent Botswana in New York in July (15-19, 2012)! It's all up to YOU!
