Emily and I wanted to say THANK YOU AGAIN!

Emily and I wanted to say THANK YOU AGAIN! We had such an incredible time in Hawaii! The CGTV Program was amazing – and your actors rock (as always)!

We already started working remotely with Sean Anderson (AZ), Ella Mejia (AZ), Mercy Flomo (RI) & Matthew Mungunkhuyag (IL) from the Los Angeles Celebrity Experience event! They have been submitting tapes for projects, and if they receive callbacks they will fly out.
Also, as we discussed in Hawaii – I wanted to share with you some exciting updates about your other amazing students that we are working with!

With great enthusiasm I would recommend the CGTV

Jake MartinWith great enthusiasm I would recommend the CGTV to young actors who want to grow and develop within the industry. CGTV has opened doors to my acting career and has helped develop my skills as an actor. I started CGTV in January 2017. During this time, I was given opportunities to link up with agents and audition for a major role in a TV series. Recently I have completed and starred in a national KFC TVC. I have been involved with Adrian R’Mante and his amazing team and throughout this time they have made me feel apart of the CGTV family. Adrian is a professional who genuinely cares and wants to see upcoming actors succeed. CGTV encourage and supported me throughout my journey and I’m grateful for this experience. Stay humble and follow your dreams.

TJ Wright

TJ Wright, attended the CGTV Program in LA the summer of 2014

TJ WrightMy son, TJ Wright, attended a CGTV program in LA in the summer of 2014. He’d been doing commercial work for about a year and had become serious about getting into film and TV (at the ripe age of 6)! We decided to go with CGTV because we felt it would give TJ a glimpse into the work it takes for film and TV. The camp did that and more!

The kids received great training from experienced actors all week, but also had to put in work to prepare for their showcase. The environment was both realistic and supportive. Adrian and his team were incredibly generous with their knowledge and support of the kids.

By the end of the week, TJ was very sad to leave even though he’d worked hard all week. It showed us that acting was his dream and he was ready to work toward it.

We live in Florida and have had to work differently than actors who live in larger film and TV markets, but Adrian set very realistic expectations, which have guided me as a parent until this day.

TJ has continued to book commercials and related projects. And, we are very excited to report that TJ booked his first feature film – The Hate U Give – in the fall of 2017 (after 3 years of consistently auditioning – persistence!)! The movie will be in theaters on October 19, 2018. It will be an exciting culmination of many years of hard work.

We will continue to enjoy the ride!

He was discovered by a top agency and manager from Los Angeles. The opportunities that he was given were amazing. He was able to audition for a multitude of projects on TV and film. His first project was a commercial for K Jewelers, followed by an episode of Criminal Minds, and Stephen King’s It remake where he will be playing the role of Georgie. Despite the fact that it is a horror film he had a great and positive experience on the set. Jackson really enjoyed being a part of this projectJackson Robert Scott. It was a team effort and he loved being a part of a team that created something exciting and special for everyone to enjoy when the film comes out in the theaters.

Hi Adrian-

TJ doesn’t like cheese at all (except for mozzarella on pizza) and he booked a commercial for Jarslberg cheese that shot on Friday. Theo used to tease him and say “what if you get a commercial and have to eat cheese.” You truly never know what will happen!

And, as it turns out, he had to eat the cheese!!! But, he did great. No complaints. All smiles. They finished his scene in less than hour (we waited longer than he worked). The director – who’s worked on movies like Jurassic Park – was very complimentary of TJ. He said “I knew he was a natural as soon as we started” and “he really knows his stuff.”

Proud of this kid….hope all is well on your end.
