Video-based social media site for stage performers (actors, dancers, musicians, etc.)

Looking for: Designer, Developer
I founded a company last year that primarily revolves around a video-based website that is aimed to feature and attract stage performers of all kinds (actors, dancers, musicians, etc.).  My site is already up and running with a few dozen videos on there.  I am looking for someone with a strong programming/development background who is interested in coming on as a partner to help take it to a whole new level.  The site has already gotten thousands of hits and feedback on the concept has been 100% positive, but the technical aspects of the site leave something to be desired (this is what happens when you go with the lowest bidder for a programmer/designer on your first attempt). 

The site, as is, has more search functions than YouTube (for example, on mine you can search videos by title, artist, AND location), and I recently had some new wireframes created for it for the redesign and relaunch of it - think a Vimeo-like layout.  There are social media tie-ins already built into the site (Facebook and Twitter), as well other great and unique features not currently found on any other video site.  My background is as a radio DJ and having worked in large-scale promotions, concerts, etc.  I'm also a part-time improv comedian, so I have an affinity for helping bring new fans to undiscovered talent.  There are TONS of talented performers out there and for them to be discovered through YouTube has about the same odds as winning the lottery.  My site aims to improve those odds significantly.  The audience for this site can be literally worldwide, with exponential avenues for attracting users, revenue, and advertising.

I'm looking for someone who has experience with UI/UX and video players, specifically.  Mobile app experience a plus.  U.S.-based inquiries only, thanks. 

Please contact me for the website and more details!
