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.
