CGTV Grad scores big on TV!

 

We LOVE working with kids and young adults!  More than working with them, we love to hear their follow up stories on how life is going since they LEFT CGTV’s program.  We work with talent agencies all over the country in bringing their biggest and brightest talents to our Hollywood Agents and Managers.  Since graduating Erin has been busy, listen to her story below.

CGTV Grad

“I was 7 when I attended a weekend CGTV workshop in Miami, Florida that Adrian R’Mante was kind enough to provide for my agent Karen Greer’s top talent. That summer I attended CGTV’s camp which I can’t say enough about.

Now 12, Adrian has been a constant in my life as my acting mentor/coach. The tools I have learned in the CGTV program have allowed me to book a national tv commercial, projects for Disney, appear on stage in children’s musical theater productions, a role in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors NBC TV movie, as well as the sequel filming this summer.
I am so excited to be going back to LA this summer to attend another CGTV camp. The highlight I have to say, is all of the amazing friends I have made in the program/workshops. Friends that have become like family to me.  We support each other in our careers which makes it extra special. Adrian taught us that it’s important to lift each other up and we all continue to do that. Adrian has always been a phone call or text away, making each of us feel important and nurtured.
The experience of working with the CGTV team has boosted my confidence and I have grown so much as a person and actor. I am now considered a triple threat, acting, dancing and singing. The training I have received since age 7 has prepared me to audition and keep reaching for my dreams!  Thank you CGTV!”

CGTV has done the math and the results are in, over 80% of our participants have been called back by a Hollywood agent or manager that saw them perform in our showcase.  Tamara Gipson is one of those examples.  Tamari auditioned in 2014 and attended our CGTV program the following summer.  Listen to what mom says happened next,

Kid strikes gold with agents at CGTV!

“Hi there Tamari Gipson is so grateful for  being able to Audition with Adrian R’Mante in 2014.  That following summer he attended the CGTV program with many other talented actors.  At the end of the program, the kids did a showcase on the stage at the Acme Comedy Theater and Tamari received 10 call backs.  Since, Tamari has a Manager. He sees his Acting Coach once a week. He was in the Disney’s  Mulan Jr play at the Community Center. He’s done a couple documentaries and just finished filming for the State Fair.  CGTV is a great opportunity to build confidence and get the knowledge they need.   It’s great for the parents too when getting just started out in the field. I strongly recommend.  Mom”

CGTV taught & gave me the keys to success

The benefits of CGTV go far beyond simply actors training.  They also report a sense of purpose and a feeling that they have a genuine path to their dreams that is both practical and obtainable through hard work, study and discipline.  CGTV teaches them that TV and Film requires a very dedicated individual that can take their fair share of rejections and still push forward.

 

CGTV Taught

Alysha Chetty was one of these students.  But, don’t take our word for it, hear what she had to say about her experience at CGTV. 

“The best thing that happened to me because of CGTV is that my door is now wide open to opportunity and success.  Their training and compassionate staff helped me realize who I was, where I was and where I wanted to be in life.  Before CGTV, I was a more “go with the flow, chill” type of person  But, when the CGTV doors opened and I met with Adrian, I realized that he was going to be a major key to my success.  All at once, I realized what I wanted to do with my life and from that point forward the CGTV experience has never left me.  It was a once in a lifetime experience which taught me etiquette, self-development, self esteem, acting skills and maybe more importantly, how to be a human being.  CGTV is all about turning your dreams into a pursuable reality.  My dreams have just started becoming a reality and I know I have thousands of more dreams I will accomplish.  I now feel like a consummate professional, prepared and ready for the opportunities being put in front of me.  What are you waiting for?  If this is your dream, get out there, audition and make your dreams your reality.  Like I did.”

Grad heard Gossip about CGTV and cries foul!

Gossip about CGTVGrad heard Gossip about CGTV and cries foul!

 

We get it, talent agencies have been perfecting their scam for centuries.  Pay us, and we will market you to the world!  We agree you should not be paying talent agencies to represent you.  They make their money when you get the job.  Let’s be clear, CGTV is not a talent agency.  So, when we hear that someone is putting gossip into the community that CGTV is scamming people, we take those comments very seriously.

Grad heard Gossip about CGTV and cries foul!

CGTV is quite simply, a program that Actor/Director Adrian R’Mante came up with to scout for raw talent, train and prepare them for Hollywood and then present them to his personal industry connections who happen to be some of the brightest and best Hollywood Talent and Casting agencies.  People like Lisa London who cast Miley as Hannah Montana, Mark Ruffalo and thousands of others have come to rely upon CGTV and Adrian for a fresh pool of talent.  In fact, if Adrian did not deliver the prepared talent time and time again, the agents would stop coming to his showcases.  But they do not.  In fact, the list has only grown larger.
The truth is, getting an agent in Hollywood is difficult to impossible without industry connections and the skills and talent they require. Adrian is providing a golden ticket to the top for all of his students, whether or not you are admitted, that will be solely based on your talent, drive, dedication, and stick-to-itiveness.  Listen to what one grad had to say.

“Okay, let us put all rumors aside regarding what Adrian R’Mante and his team are doing. My family and I have been twice to LA to participate and I promise you it was everything I had hoped for and more.  Adrian is a real, professional actor, teacher, and mentor.   What he does for us kids is amazing. His passion and dedication for teaching the kids, leading his team, and taking care of the parents are amazing. Giving feedback months later, even years is what you can expect from Adrian.  Keep up your work Adrian.  You are the reason many kids today work hard every day in front of the camera. Adrian is the real deal, let there be no doubt.”   Nils Ole Neerland

Criminal Minds after CGTV

5 Year gets 15 agent callbacks

Criminal Minds after CGTV5 Year gets 15 agent callbacks and secures a costar role in Criminal Minds after CGTV

 

No success story is more fun to hear than those of the little kids!  Our staff spotted this talent a mile away.  And his parents were super supportive and truly believed in their son and CGTV.  And their trust paid off, in spades.  Don’t listen to us, read the thank you letter from mom below!

Criminal Minds after CGTV

“My son Jackson went through the program at 5 years old (one of the very youngest). It not only helped him build confidence, discipline, and memorization skills at an early age, but he was also able to learn and enjoy the craft of acting from Adrian, Virgil and their incredible team. He received 15 callbacks and was signed that week with a top agent and manager in the industry. He had such a wonderful experience, we did the CGTV program in LA a second time just for the fun of it while he went out on auditions. He ended up booking a national Kay Jewelers commercial and costarring in an episode of Criminal Minds. As a parent, there is nothing better than seeing your child engage in and love an activity, whether that’s acting, music, sports, etc.  CGTV opened up a world of opportunity and wonderful memories for my son and our family. Adrian and Virgil truly care about what they do and have supported us every step of the way. Thank you.”

Acting is only a representation of life.  So when we work with actors, we try to remember that we are working with human beings, not just a professional or actor.  Especially when it comes to the young adults we help shape and mentor.  We do our best to provide a safe and challenging environment where the kids can expand into their passion under the guidance of experienced industry experts.  So it’s always great when we hear from a recent grad that we delivered this experience for him.

CGTV is the real deal

“Adrian R’Mante and my CGTV family are amazing and my experience has taught me how to prepare myself as an actor.  My peers were a huge part of this for me.  And by the end of the program, I had become friends with Adrian, his staff, his family and the other kids and adults that were participating in the program.  I learned so much in terms of skills, but more so, I learned how to be prepared for this industry and my auditions. Adrian is always truthful and will do anything to get you to that next level.  I have seen some negative comments on Facebook about CGTV, but they are not from anyone that has actually participated in the program.  CGTV is the real deal and Adrian delivers more than he promises.  I am proud to call him my director, my brother and my mentor.  Even though I graduated, we stay in touch and I can count on him for advice.”  Jacob Arriola

An actor has to make SO many choices when auditioning or performing.  These choices can be daunting to an adolescent just learning about themselves.  One of the things that we like to do at CGTV is teach a young actor how to use his or her intuition to guide the process.  So, we were thrilled to receive this thank you note from Gia Benso.

“CGTV was one of the best things that has ever happened to me.  Because of CGTV, which includes Adrian and all of his staff, I now know how to believe in myself and TRUST my choices.  Because I believe in me, I show up with confidence and trust the choices I have made.   Subsequently, so do others including agents and casting directors.  At CGTV I d

It is always a great litmus test to see what true industry professionals think about our program.  And Tommy J. Mueller ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3353844/ ) is a seasoned professional with 10+ years of experience in the film and television industry.  Listen to what he has to say about CGTV & Adrian R’Mante.

 CGTV & Adrian R’Mante

“I have worked within the film and television industry for 10 years now in Canada and have landed numerous roles.  I have now achieved my full Union Aftra status and SAG eligibility.  I have known Adrian for 9 years and he is without a doubt, one of the most dedicated individuals I have ever met.  He loves his work and in my eyes is a true actor’s actor.  He cares about his talented students and works tremendously hard to get them the opportunities they deserve!  I have been fortunate to have landed a principal roe on a successful multi award winning television series as a principal character for 5 seasons.  Not only has my training been successful, but I will continue my training with CGTV!  Adrian is a professional actor who made his mark on this industry through hard work, dedication and an impecable work ethic.  He is transparent and makes friends easily because of that.  He is trustworthy and it has been nothing but a great honor to have him as a friend.  CGTV is the most unique and highly motivating program for any actor regardless of their level.  I stand by CGTV and it will put you on the right path to success.  Thank you so much CGTV and Adrian R’Mante

With over 1,000 case studies of getting actors call backs from agents and managers, we know we are good at actor training, preparation and can deliver top industry agencies.  But, we are just as proud of our intangible benefits as well.  Listen to a few from one of our favorite students, Trina “VB”.

 CGTV Delivered
“I just want to say that Adrian R’Mante is amazing.  He could have hired someone to do all of the things that he did himself, but he didn’t.  He took the time to run the entire program, (alongside his talented and mostly super famous staff) worked with each one of us (there were 75 in my class!) individually and help us all become the very best we can be.  He put so much time, effort and faith in me that he made me want to be the very best I could!  He picked a great scene and the perfect partners for me.  I met so many amazingly talented people and I miss them so much.  Not only is CGTV legitimate but Adrian R’Mante is AMAZING.  He equipped me with so much more than headshots, he gave me the chance to show my talents to agents and shot a professional demo reel on a TV set with me that I will be able to use for auditions and agencies.  Besides all of that, maybe the most important thing, is that he helped me break out of my shell.  He also taught me to embrace the good and to change the bad.  Not get rid of the bad, but change them to be used for something good.  Adrian really knows his stuff.  I am so grateful I met him and got to know and work with him.  I am so much more confident now than before I attended this program.  Look out world, I’m coming and the biggest reason is because Adrian equipped me to do so.”  Trina VB

CGTV Inspiring

CGTV Inspiring young talent!

FILMAdrian R’Mante is no stranger to him & CGTV inspiring young adults.  Before he inspired Zack & Cody on set, he was inspiring children in the classroom, as an English teacher.

Since day one of his professional career, Adrian’s main focus is CGTV inspiring the next generation.  Now, that he has a successful acting career being a leader to the new generation is still a priority for him, one that he fulfills with his CGTV program.  Don’t take our word for it, listen to what Kaysha Stack has to say about our program.

“I was inspired to pursue my dream which I was convinced was unachievable and unrealistic.  That inspiration led me to be associated with CGTV for the past three years.  This year at only 18 years old, I am moving to Vancouver to attend the Vancouver Film School.  Adrian R’Mante and CGTV helped me discover my true self and they motivated me with their belief in my abilities!  The greatest thing I learned from Adrian and CGTV is that I can do anything I dedicate myself to.  They saw my true passion for performing and I am grateful for every minute of time he has spent with me both inside and outside of the classroom.  I have so much love for everyone that is a part of CGTV, you have changed my life, thank you so much!”  Kaysha Stack
