JRHorse Side Project Opens Poster Model Program to Everyone

Jul 18th 2006
Flexible anime lovers of all ages can submit photos demonstrating their “Twist”

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The JRHorse Side Project, a weekly radio program on Keiichi.net Radio, has announced an expansion of its Side Project Poster Model program to people of all ages around the world that are willing to participate.

The Side Project Poster Model program, which began in February of 2006, was designed to allow dancers in the New York City area to promote themselves while demonstrating the theme of the JRHorse Side Project show: To offer the greatest in Anime and J-Pop Music with a New York Twist. Based on the success and feedback from the Poster Model program – with over 28,000 video views since the first of four models was introduced that March – the program will now be extended to the general public.

“I am happy to make this announcement regarding the expansion of the Poster Model program,” said Jose Ramos, host of the JRHorse Side Project. “Now anyone with a knack for flexibility and a love of Anime, from anywhere in the world, can present their talents to the Internet community. We will post the best photos on our website, and someone might even be rewarded with a Japan-related prize package.

The Side Project seeks people who can demonstrate the show's theme and motto. Participants should ideally don anime-style clothing (i.e. cosplay) while demonstrating their flexibility skills to provide that special “twist”. After submitting their photographs, the Side Project will take the best ones and post them on the Side Project website.

“This program is really designed for participants to have fun,” Ramos said. “Anyone can set up his or her own goal when participating. They can demonstrate their flexibility skills, or show everyone their skill in designing or wearing costumes, or even be the envy of their family and friends. The possibilities are endless.”

The submission deadline for the first round of photos is Sunday, September 10, 2006. This, according to Ramos, should be plenty of time for interested participants to make preparations, take their photos, and send them in.

Full terms and conditions, instructions on submitting photos, and flexibility demonstrations from the first four poster models can be found on the Side Project website, located at http://www.jrhorse.info/sideproject.
