CEO Reviews CGTV’s Program
So glad you reached out. First of all, I am the social media director for CGTV and before that, I was a client and a mom of a client. Both my daughter and I went through the program and it is truly amazing. My daughter got to work with the actors from all of her favorite TV shows from childhood. She was a Shakespeare Festival finalist and I am a classically trained theatre actress. I too had questions of legitimacy, because there are so many talent agencies scamming and asking for fees. CGTV is NOT a talent agency. It is owned by Adrian R’Mante aka Esteban from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Who coincidentally was an English teacher prior to striking it big with Disney. He is a machine. He works with these kids from the moment their feet step on the ground in Hollywood and he never leaves them. Even after the program.
During the program the kids all audition again for Adrian in person. This takes hours, but it reminds him what their talent is and helps him select a scene partner that will make both partners shine. He does all of this himself. Even though there is a large staff, the important production, casting, directing and final decisions are all made by Adrian. From day 1 of the event through the end, you will watch him work from morning till night, then go home with hours of work to do to get everyone organized and on track. The week I was there he did this with over 75 students. It was insane to watch how perfectly orchestrated it is. When you are not in the room with Adrian, you are in workshops with STARS from your favorite shows. But more than stars, they are consulate professional actors that know the ins and outs of Hollywood and want to save your kid the strife of learning from the ground up, the hard way. The actors shown on your brochure are not just photo and a smile, they work with our students to teach them everything from how to take your mark, how to audition, what will separate your audition from everyone else, the motivation behind your monologue/scene, improv and so much more.
