TSPOSTERWe are pleased to announce that the Second Expat Talent Show has arrived. This year the show is organised by Fashion Extreme Paris and Expatriates Magazine and looks to be another great evening for the international community in Paris.

The Concept
For the past couple of months we’ve been inviting talented expats to submit their talents through our registration form, judging by the entries we are certainly a talented community.

Voting System
One by one the approved contestants will perform their act in front of the audience and judges, who will in turn provide their feedback and rating (a 10 point system). With 3 judges from the entertainment industry present, 30 points are available from the officials. However, please the audience and contestants can win an additional 10 points if the majority raise their voting card.

Lisa Florian

Lisa Lisa is a British actress and voice-over artist based in Paris. In 2012 she began making films. Her first short as writer/producer – Prick Thy Neighbour, a short and curly tale about blooming late love was directed by actress Tara FitzGerald (Game of Thrones, Blackbird, Legend, Exodus: Gods and Kings). It did well on the festival circuit and can currently be seen in several territories, notably Ciné+ Emotion in France. She has since penned a short Shakespeare-Inspired Docufiction entitled Home and her first feature screenplay – Amsterdam, a love story – has been shortlisted for Film London’s Microwave scheme (supported by the BFI & BBC Films).
