CGTV is not a scam

Stepfather Proclaims CGTV is not a scam! Every now and then someone that has never experienced our program will say some silly things on the internet about our company.  The other day on our Facebook page, some teen was calling CGTV a scam.  One stepdad whom attended the January VIP program with his wife and daughter was very offended and this is what he had to say about CGTV being a scam. CGTV is not a scam.

Read below;

“CGTV is the furthest thing away from a scam you can find. Many complain about the price, but the way it was explained to me at the tryout, it is a small price to pay for an amazing program and opportunity. Both my wife and daughter attended CGTV and had an absolute blast in the process and got put in front of real, Hollywood agents and were given a real opportunity to get an agent.

 

The largest portion of the program is the week of preparation the participants receive before they get their shot in front of the scouts. They work with Disney stars and well-trained actors that teach them exactly what these talent seekers are looking for. You get a distinct advantage over the competition by learning from those that have already succeeded at where you want to go. After scenes have been practiced, edited, and finalized, My wife Gia and daughter Jenna were ready for the biggest auditions of their lives.

 

On the big night, all of the coaches showed up, rooting the kids and other participants on and going over last minute tips to keep their nerves calm. The level of professionalism was great to see, but what really confirmed that my money was well spent was when I walked into the stands of the venue to find around 50 agents seated and ready to take notes. We had gotten far more than what we had paid for and my girls were going to get their biggest opportunity of their lives.

 

After it was all said and done, neither my wife nor my daughter received an agent call back. This of course was disappointing to us, but what shocked me most was that Adrian R’Mante, the owner and director of the program, seemed the most upset! He said that we most certainly had to come back to the next audition, and that they could try out as many times as they like, it won’t cost them a dime.  Plus, rockstar casting director Lisa London whom cast stars like Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Aniston and more in roles long before they were famous put my wife on the short list of actors she believes is ready for big screen casting! CGTV is not a scam!

If Hollywood is your dream, using CGTV is going to give you a legitimate shot to make your dreams a reality.”  Michael Howard

Her mother credits CGTV & Adrian to her success.  She says that what he did for both her daughters was nothing short of fantastic.   At auditions & while filming, directors and producers are constantly commenting on how professional Kristina is from auditioning to filming.  Mom says that Adrian taught her girls how to shine on and off the set.  The transition from novice to consummate professional was effortless because of what she learned in rehearsal, filming and on stage at CGTV.

 “I am the Social Media Director for CGTV. I am also a mother of a child actor. I did my due diligence on CGTV before I worked for them and before I put my daughter through this program. What I found was that all the negative reviews came from people whom never attended the CGTV workshops or camp. We had about 80 kids presented at ACME Theatre live in Los Angeles this past January 2016. When the list of Hollywood Agents/Managers came out, I saw that about 45% of the people in the workshop were called back by top agencies. In addition, while we were at the camp, we worked with all of the Disney stars that Adrian advertises in his program materials. Actors whom had taken sometimes years to get accepted by an agency. In fact, we found out the Adrian (Esteban of The Suite Life of Zach and Cody) took three years in Hollywood before he was signed with a Hollywood agency. One of the reasons he started this program was to provide a viable way for talent to get in front of agencies that hundreds of thousands of others are also trying to get in front of. Adrian brings them the right to his talent and they come because he keeps producing talent. One thing to note, CGTV is not a talent agency. When one of the CGTV actors gets a huge role in a major motion picture (Like RJ Cyler in The Power Rangers or Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl) neither CGTV nor Adrian benefits financially from this. So the only way they can be paid for the tremendous service they are providing is to have a cost associated with their time/services. It is only a “scam” if they are pretending to be a Talent Agency. CGTV is not a talent agency. It auditions actors to make sure the natural talent is there. In Phoenix, I saw them audition 500 kids and only extend about 45 invitations for callbacks. If they have the talent, they will be offered a spot in one of the workshops. Some of them range in the low thousands and the VIP programs cost more. But the values are commensurate with the packages.   And the prices are clearly listed alongside the services when we speak with these parents personally about how we can help their child and why we think they have the talent.

Example: I paid $5,000 for my daughter to attend this VIP session. She attended acting workshops with successful working actors for a week. She worked with Adrian directly over 4-5 times. She shot a professional, commercial grade reel on site at a real studio/set. She received head shots. When we were done, I wondered how he could do so much, for so long, for so little. My advice to him was to raise his price to $10,000. He smiled and said he wanted to keep it accessible to as many people as possible.

As the newly appointed social media director, one of the parts of my job is to interview the actors and report their success stories. From Criminal Minds To Disney Shows, To ARROW, to blockbuster films, our kids that had NO HOLLYWOOD experience other than this program are winning big. And I am proud to be a supporter and promoter of this organization

I read the bad reviews.  They were from people that had never experienced the service.  Writing negative reviews about a product you have not experience/purchased seems as disingenuous as me reviewing a $10,000 Sony Flatscreen that I never purchased.  Maybe it was worth the 10k, maybe it wasn’t.  But If I didn’t purchase it, I will never know. “
