We love all of our graduates at CGTV and this one is no exception, no one works harder at crafting his art than Oscar Ceja. During his time at CGTV, he took his training very seriously and truly shined when we presented his talents to many industry agents and managers at his live showcase at ACME theater. We can go on about the 1,000+ success stories that CGTV has helped develop, but we prefer you listen to the grads themselves.
“My name is Oscar Ceja I am 17 years old and I am a CGTV Graduate. About 3 years ago was when I first heard about CGTV on the radio, I was a bit skeptical since I had already lost over $20,000 to the “scam” schools such as John Robert Powers, John Casablanca, One source talent and the list just goes on. I decided to audition for CGTV and I attended the program that same year. Since day one Adrian cared for all the talent and not only are you a student but you become family that creates life long friendships with people who share the same passion. I gained lots of knowledge and skills that I didn’t have before attending the program. With the knowledge and skills I was able to attain an agent that has helped me get many auditions in LA. Since the program I have also
booked several jobs.
Most recently my Khan Academy/SAT commercial that just aired. CGTV gave me a huge kick-start to my career that no other program would. Without CGTV I wouldn’t be where I am today. Since the program I have relocated to Los Angeles and constantly auditioning hoping to book something. Adrian continues to mentor me and I also assist him during the other programs.
One major thing to know is that nothing is free in this business therefore you have to invest money in order to get money. I encourage every actor that doesn’t know in what direction to go to consider CGTV”
With Great Appreciation,
Hi Adrian, this is Natalie Ramos from Naples, Florida. I just wanted to send you quick email so say that I’m thankful for everything that you’ve done for me. Without you, I wouldn’t have met my amazing agent, Karen Greer❤️ I’ve been working hard with my acting and singing coaches! Im on casting network and actors access. Big news!! This Friday I’m getting a chance to audition for high school musical 4 in Orlando !! I’m beyond excited! I just want to say thank you for helping me in California and then helping me find a great agent!! I hope You and Your family are doing great! Send lots of love to your baby girl and the new baby that is coming on the way! Talk to you soon, love Nat
Hi Adrian and staff,
Thanks so much for the great seminar this past May. It really was a wonderful experience for Kimberly. Here’s a quick update: She was tagged for callbacks by 13 of the 17 agents that attended the showcase, which was phenomenal. We actually met with 6 agents before settling on a theatrical agent and a commercial agent. Both have been invaluable in giving us the right guidance and advice in getting Kimberly started in this business.
We’ve been submitting through Actors Access and LA Casting pretty regularly for about a month. Kimberly got a call back on her very first audition, which was amazing. She also completed her first commercial shoot yesterday! She got the part as the daughter in an infomercial for a kitchen device and was paid $200 for about 4 hours work. She was so excited to be filmed eating ice cream and getting a check with her name on it.
Again, thank you! None of this would have happened without your wonderful showcase. I can highly recommend it to anybody with talented kids that want to pursue an acting career.
We signed with Carla at Alexander’s 😉
She is trying to get Regan a meeting with Disney!! Very exciting!
I am just waiting to hear back from Regan’s teacher regarding her school work if she was to miss school for a month. She is in French immersion so I am just finding out if she is allowed to miss that much. I am sure it will be fine! She is very excited to work with you again;)
We found out that if a big production like disney or a TV series or motion pic wants her then they would fast track her 01 visa, so I have my fingers crossed for her!! If not then she has to do a few more things in Canada before she can apply, and get a job offer of course!
Just keeping you updated!
I should know tomorrow if we are coming out for pilot season, just depends if I can make it work with her school work!
Thanks again for everything! Regan has grown so much as a little actress!! You and your team are amazing!!
Dallas and Regan Munch
Thank you CGTV,
You were the best acting coach ever .If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am currently shooting a movie entitled “The Killer in the Mirror”. When I shot my first scene I forgot my lines. I was very sad because of an incident that happened some hours before I shot. I remembered to improvise. Finally we were finished with that exhausting scene. A couple of days later I was surprised to receive a call from you. CGTV, You gave me words of encouragement. This showed me that you truly care about all of your future celebrity actors and actresses. I love you for that, and once again thank you CGTV.

This past week, my son Anthony was lucky enough to attend a special workshop by CGTV. I just wanted to let you know what a great time he had. I was especially impressed with CGTV’s big heart and true love for the business. My son is only 6 years old but he too has a big heart and when he was upset, CGTV took to time to do a special scene with him which made his day. Thank you for this wonderful experience and if CGTV ever comes back to the New York area, I hope Anthony will be able to attend another one of his workshops. Thank you for this wonderful experience. A grateful mom and an excited 6 year old.
P.S. If you have a newsletter, please put me on your list.

Simply wanted to pass on our appreciation and praise with respect to your recent workshop in Toronto.
Your workshop provided an opportunity for my daughter, Stefani, to learn while having tons of fun … and, as you know, at eight years old learning is best done while having fun!
Like most of the other children present … Stefani did not want to see the sessions, let alone the weekend, end. That more than anything speaks to the worthiness of your workshop’s offerings.
As a parent, I was most impressed by Tim’s professionalism, CGTV’s genuine commitment to helping children (and his charisma is nothing to laugh at either) and Chester’s dynamic, warm presence.
Money well spent … wonderful memories … and information and inside tips that are sure to come in handy!
Keep up the good work!

Thank you for traveling north for our children. What an amazing opportunity! Moreover, thank you for truly caring about our children.

This is the young blonde, Kirsten, from the workshop. I just wanted to thank you for coming there and teaching me. Your advice has already helped me become a better actor.
Thanks again for coming.
Thank you for coming to JRP in Toronto. Wow…what a weekend for the kids! There are 30+ young actors going through major CGTV and Chester withdrawal. As a parent, it was amazing to see the dynamics of the group evolve over the weekend. I can’t believe how much Keira changed and drew in just a few days, she has always been confident, but, she’s different now, it’s hard to describe.
