Welcome to My New Site

Movie Slate

Thanks for dropping by! Today I’m debuting DoyleBrand.com, a site for movie and TV show casting directors, producers, directors, agents, and entrepreneurs to stay informed about my work as an actor-writer amidst the Web’s continual influence on the business of Hollywood. The Internet has revolutionized the way we live, work and play, and the movie and TV industries are no exception. If you’re passionate about the social Web, movies, and TV shows, this is the place for you!

The Doyle Blog is a platform for my creative expression and a social place for visitors to converse with me and each other.  So please poke around and feel free to leave a comment about what you like or don’t like on the site today, or about other topics that pique your interest in the future. Together we can learn a lot from each other, and I look forward to hearing your views and opinions.

I’m also unveiling my new Facebook Page and new designs for my Twitter page and YouTube channel.  So feel free to connect with me on these sites too.

Thanks again and I’ll see you in cyberspace or, better yet, in-person sometime soon!

P.S. I just finished a fabulous shoot this past weekend with up-and-coming director J. Michael Moncrief, who played the young boy in The Legend of Bagger Vance, directed by Robert Redford. It’s a short about two college literature professors who square off in an “academic pissing” contest.  Look out for my Portfolio and Demo Reel to be updated with this material in the next 3 – 4 weeks.  The piece was inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Sunday at Home.  Also keep an eye out for Mr. Moncrief in the years ahead. Trust me, you will hear about him.  He’s a bona fide talent with a robust knowledge of film history, a well-developed directorial eye, and an astute skill for drawing out the best performances from actors.

Human Nature Drives Web 2.0 Communities

A major value of social media is that it empowers people to strengthen their existing relationships, build new ones, and communicate more efficiently than in the Web 1.0 world. As a regular Facebook user, I got to thinking about what it takes for companies to fully capitalize on the value of social media.

Traditional marketing would have us think that companies “simply” need to find the most effective and efficient ways to ensure their messages are being communicated accurately and consistently both online and offline. That’s not inaccurate – it’s just incomplete in 2007. Our Web 2.0 world is different because today’s online communities are much more complex – not only are there one-to-one relationships, there are also one-to-many, many-to-many and different degrees in between. Today’s Web communities also communicate much quicker and more frequently with each other than users in the Web 1.0 era. And even five years ago we didn’t have the level of personalization and interactivity that we have today, not to mention the sheer number of people online. (more…)
