Yes, you read that! I will really give you the secret to be famous, even though I'm not famous myself.
Nowadays, multimedia resources are reasonably cheaper and their accesses are much easier than they were some years ago. Most people nowadays, regardless their social class, can make movies, record songs and even broadcast them anytime and anywhere through their mobile phones. The quality of the image and sound is raising and the prices of devices falling.
Other multimedia devices such as digital cameras and powerful soundcards are offering full HD quality for videos and allows people to make the sound of a whole band by themselves with their computers.
Think of how many local bands or internet stars you know. Think of how many non-talented people have become famous recently on the web just by daring to do something.
Based on that, I can suggest the following tips to become a local celebrity:
1 - You should have the right device for your target market. If you want to become a famous actor or comedian, you should have a video camera. In case you are a musician and wants to get famous, you should have a good computer, sound card and some input instruments or synthetizer. For other than that, follow the thought.
2 - You should be at least a tiny little bit talented. In case you're not, an overload of special effects and correction softwares won't help you very long;
3 - You should have something different. If you sound like consolidated artists, it is not likely that you will attract attention from people.
If you can fulfill all the requirements above, plus some effort, you can get a spot under the sun. Remember: In the times of free or nearly free media, the huge mass celebrities from the 90's have been being replaced by the local ones.
