Of course, kids love CGTV, what’s not to love?  You get to work with your favorite actors from Disney, Nickelodeon and more.  You learn how to audition for TV and Film, perform LIVE on stage at ACME theater in front of Hollywood managers and agents and in some programs get your own headshots and professional commercial reels shot on professional TV sets with Adrian R’Mante as your director.  But when Moms love it, that’s when you KNOW it is a home run.  Don’t take our word for it, listen to what Praveena Chetty had to say about her daughter’s experience.

CGTV is Kid Loved and Mom Approved

“As a proud parent of a CGTV alum, I would love to share my experience.  My daughter has attended two programs with CGTV and Adrian R’Mante.  As a parent, I have noticed that she has not only gained skills and training for acting, but she has also gained the courage and confidence needed to face large audiences.  After graduation, she has performed in various music videos within the South Asian community of Bollywood and has been modeling for high-end Bollywood fashion designers of India as well.  This is just the beginning for her, modeling agencies in LA have been offering her further opportunities.  She has been both motivated and encouraged b Adrian R’Mante’s programs and is looking forward to attending more even though she has already been signed by Platinum Talent Management Agency.  For her, nothing beats working with her favorite actor from her childhood.  Thanks, CGTV and Adrian for the help and support that has gotten my child to where she is today.  You have not only shown her down the path but you have been an integral part in making her dreams come true.”  Praveena Chetty

Listen to what Kaitlyn aka “Tweetybird” had to say about CGTV.

“CGTV was the best thing that ever happened to me!  I had wanted to get my feet wet in the entertainment industry but had absolutely no clue where to start.  CGTV picked me out of the crowd and gave my dreams a green light.  The program taught me to push forward and hustle hard if this is your passion.  They taught me to never give up, always work hard and always be prepared.  CGTV has opened doors for me that I would never have been able to find on my own at 18.  With Adrian R’Mante and CGTV, your life and career can blossom like crazy.  I want to thank each and every one of you for the time and attention you gave me that changed my life.”  Kaitlyn

 Pro Child Actor reviews CGTV

The skills I learned at CGTV helped me stand out during auditions and projects that came my way. They took the “green” talent I had and helped me develop it.  But more importantly, they taught me that education is an important part of being a good actor.  It is something that I still work on today because of what I learned at CGTV.   Because of CGTV, I have an amazing manager and agent and have worked in Hollywood and beyond. I couldn’t have asked for a better dream come true for a 10 years old! Thanks, Adrian R’Mante, and team! – Jennifer McNichols Sack

Is CGTV a scam?Is CGTV A Scam?

In Hollywood, it can be hard to know who is on your side and what talent scouts are trying to take your money and run.  If your talent is real and you think you could make it in the business, there are talent programs available that are not scams.  CGTV is a high-level entertainment program designed to help talent successfully navigate the entertainment industry.

Who says CGTV is a scam?

Some people try to say CGTV is a scam.  Typically, these are parents who can’t pay for the program or don’t want to pay for it.  The truth is, none of our bad press comes from kids that have attended the program.  The bad reviews are from parents that have not had their kids attend the program.  CGTV has helped many young actors turn their dreams into reality.  Is CGTV A Scam?

Why CGTV?

CGTV is the real deal and is run by some of the top celebrities from major networks.  We help young actors achieve their shot in show business every day.  There are expenses, but the experience and education actors receive is nothing in comparison to costs.  CGTV is not running a scam.  We deliver exactly what is promised for a fee including quality education with experienced actors, professional headshots and reels, and exposure to legitimate agents and managers in the entertainment industry.

Co-founder Adrian R’Mante has a successful career and enjoys sharing his knowledge & expertise with those serious about the industry. Neither Adrian or CGTV guarantees work or auditions but they do provide you with the necessary tools to be the best you can be in a very competitive industry.

Adrian R’Mante & everyone involved with the CGTV program (Including actors you know from Disney, Nickelodeon, and films)  gives BEYOND the best opportunities any upcoming actor could ever ask for! Adrian found me in Austin, Tx & I was the #1 pick out of 250 other amazingly talented people! I was blessed with the opportunity to come to California & perform at the ACME comedy theater in front of 21 agents & received 6 call backs.  I then picked which I would like to represent me & moved out to California in January 2016. I signed with my management The ESI Network & also did the Pilot Program with Adrian  in the month of February 2016! I’ve learned so much from each program I’ve attended & gained so much insight! Adrian is a true mentor & definitely legitimate! I’ve now booked a few short films in the couple of months that I’ve been here & been able to network immensely!

It’s a rough day at CGTV when a brother and sister come in together and only one gets a call back from an agent. So when we got this note from mom that two of our favorites from the January 2016 group were doing great, we had to pass it along. The other amazing part of this story is that only one of the siblings came in with a lot of acting experience. The other sibling was able to garner skills and talents during our workshop that she was able to apply on-stage at her theatrical debut to score her a Hollywood agent call-back. This is why we do what we do. We are passionate about developing young talent and then placing them directly in front of real, top Hollywood agencies.Brother & Sister Score with CGTV!
 
“Bailey has been doing musical theater since he was 6. He loves to act and was wanting to do more with acting but Tucson has very little to offer outside of the musical theater. Bailey was extremely excited to get a chance to audition with CGTV. He really wanted to learn more about acting and TV and film. As a parent wanting to support but also protect him, I was a little skeptical. The presentation about CGTV prior to the audition was thorough. I was pleased to learn that out of about 250-300 kids that auditioned there were only around 31 selected. It was clearly not the everyone gets in the situation. The cost of the camp did not bother me as with any camp there is a fee involved for a service. CGTV exceeded my expectations as a parent. Everything that was explained and promised in the presentation was delivered. Except for one thing; Adrian R’Mante’s presence and passion for the craft, as well as his accessibility. As a parent, I could not be more thankful to see Adrian at camp every day, all day, personally working with the kids and adults. Bailey loved the camp and shined in the showcase with about 15 callbacks out of 25 roughly managers/agents. Since then, Bailey has signed with a great agent and manager has been sent out on auditions for both feature film and TV. Without CGTV and Adrian, these opportunities would not exist. We are extremely thankful.” – Cheryl, Tucson

CGTV's Program is work, not a vacation

CGTV’s Program is work, not a vacation

One of the parents makes a solid point in the below testimonial.  CGTV’s acting workshops are definitely not a “Vacation”.  Actors that make it to our program are first auditioned in front of the co-owner Adrian who serves as Casting Director, Production Director and Visionary for the entire program.   Of course, he is assisted by other working actors that most of the teens know from Disney and Nickelodeon.  Next, you are cast in a scene with a partner that he believes will help you shine and vice versa.  This takes almost an entire day and an entire night once Adrian goes home to figure out.  Actors are directed to be OFF BOOK as soon as possible with their 2-4 minute scene. Most of the actors take this quite seriously and a few of them need constant re-direction.  When making a decision about CGTV, one needs to ask themselves, will I be able to commit to this seriously?  Parents, who want this more?  You, or them?  It needs to be the child that is aggressively pursuing this, not the parent.  Our adult actors always take this 100% seriously (They made the financial investment in their career)  so we speak directly to the parents of ages 3-17.  Don’t take our word for it.  Listen to what a parent and participant has to say about the program.

Adrian R’Mante is a genuine actor and has the love for all his students that attend his professional workshop in LA. The truth of the matter is, it’s hard work and you are treated like an employee coming into the industry and expectations are high, both for both parents and students. I was lucky enough to actually be there and attend the session with my daughter in Hollywood.

The program is not a vacation. It is hard work and there is a lot to accomplish in one week to perform in front of agents and talent scouts. Now with that being said, one will get the full throttle of what it takes to work a full day and to memorize lines in a fast paced environment. To be real it is what will happen when you audition for directors on the spot. Yes, it is expensive and my advice is if your child is not disciplined enough to do the homework assigned it will be stressful for both parent and child. The dedication to the industry is to keep abreast of what is needed from the actor and to keep them active in workshops and classes independently from the program once you graduate from CGTV’s program.
Also, most auditions take place in LA so the expense is yours to take on after the course is done. It is an investment in your acting career and what you do with afterward is up to you to commit. Your child must want the career (not the parent), so you must carefully assess your child’s seriousness to the business. Adrian and his brother Virgil are genuine people and expect only the best results from their students. With that being said, I wish them all the success in the world and hope that when possible my daughter and I can attend again. Much love CGTV!”
 
CGTV Delivers me an agent!

After 3 years of failure, CGTV Delivers me an agent!

CGTV Delivers me an agent!After 3 years of failure, CGTV Delivers me an agent!

Unfortunately, there are many scams in the acting/modeling industry.  It is a common story line as well.  Talent agency needs X amount of $s to “represent” you and then if/when they find you work, take a portion of your earnings.  Unfortunately, you may likely never be hired for anything.  This is how many “Talent Agencies” work.  CGTV is NOT a talent agency.  We do not benefit from the career of our graduates other than the satisfaction of knowing we helped get them there.  We audition all over the country to find RAW talent.  Once we find that raw talent that we think is TV/Film worthy, we offer them to take it to the next level.

CGTV Delivers me an agent!

Raw talent doesn’t teach you how to “Take Your Slate” during an audition.  Raw talent doesn’t put you in front of the right agents that have all the connections to casting.  We train actors on the ins/outs and jargon of the industry, prepare their monologues/scenes to highlight their natural strengths.  And then, we put them live, on stage in front of some of Hollywood’s biggest and best agents and managers.  Typically, about 45% of our actors receive a callback from a Hollywood agent or manager.  The remainder is invited to come back and audition again for FREE at a later date.  Some of these kids and adults have been trying to get in front of Hollywood agents for years with no success.  We bring the talent right to the source.  Don’t trust us, listen to what Seda Aladzhyan had to say about her experience at CGTV.

CGTV Delivers me an agent!

“When I received an email from CGTV to come audition my first reaction was happiness and joy. Telling my dad about kind of got him to think that maybe its a scam due to the fact that we had gone through two scams before like Barbizon and One Source Talent.   Honestly, CGTV was nothing like what I went through with Barbizon they lied about bringing agents and yet they had charged way more than what CGTV was charging and I got almost nothing out of Barbizon.   CGTV was my favorite program.

Of course, my dad questioned them and told them “please tell me this isn’t a scam and that everything you are telling me is true because I am not wasting my money for my daughter to go through another scam.”   Sure enough, after my dad and I went to the orientation and he met Adrian R’Mante and was very pleased and felt safe with me doing the program.

My experience with CGTV was beyond amazing and I wouldn’t change it one bit. On the performance day, my dad saw the agents with his own eyes and was proud of me when I got on the 1st CALL BACK list and got my agent. I was in shock that my dream is coming true after 3 years of looking for a good agent on my own. Till this day, I keep my communication with Adrian R’ Mante and still ask him for help and guidance towards the right route and even go and visit him whenever I can.

CGTV Delivers me an agent!

CGTV is not a scam and I can assure you that what they tell you is true, but you have to work hard for it and have the dedication to achieve your goal, just like I did because hard work, passion, and dedication gets you to achieve the goals you want to achieve. I love you CGTV and thank you to Adrian for all his hard work and passion he has to help kids out so their dreams come true.”
