TORONTO, ON, March 12, 2006 — Giant Step has launched a website for top Canadian actor. The online engagement included redesigning the official Walter Alza website, with a focus on positioning Alza for casting, producing and directing roles in major television productions and feature films.
With the recent release of the movie �Get Rich or Die Tryin� in which Alza co-starred with 50 Cent and Oscar Nominee Terrance Howard, as well as running a lead role in the 90-episode show�’Metropia’ � Alza�s celebrity status is on the rise in the Canadian market and abroad.
�We wanted to make sure that film and television executives can glance at the site for a brief moment and understand that they are dealing with a seasoned actor� says Gil Katz, managing partner of Giant Step. �That had to come through almost immediately�. To accomplish that, Giant Step picked some of the best scenes from Alza�s extensive acting repertoire, including images and videos, media quotes, celebrity shots and news releases for the website. �To help capture and support Alza�s growing fan-base, we also set up a newsletter signup ready on every page, and made it easy to update the site send and email announcements�.
�Everybody loves the site! From LA to Toronto – producers, directors and other executives in the entertainment industry compliment me on a great online presence. The website has been very effective. I am currently in negotiations to direct my first feature film with a six figure budget. Giant Step did an amazing job on the site – it really has a wonderful effect on people� says Walter.
Currently Walter Alza is shooting the feature film ‘Gangster Exchange’ directed by Dean Bajramovic and produced by Aquila Media and�David Krae, starring as the character of Sasha, a Bosnian Low Ranking Mobster.
