CGTV Real

Is CGTV Real? The Proof is in our Results!

Is CGTV real? Parents love to see their kids reach their full potential. We would argue that nearly every parent’s desire is to support their children as they seek to live out their passions. These passions might be in music, sports, academics or other areas of the arts. No matter what they are, parents want to facilitate successful outcomes.

At CGTV we are honored to be a part of this journey for parents whose children are gifted in the dramatic arts. Every year we meet thousands of parents and kids seeking tools to help them hone their craft and move their talents to the next level. One question we hear repeatedly from parents (and kids) is “does your program actually work.” While we whole-heartedly know that our program is successful on its own merits, we believe that it is better to hear a couple stories from the bright and talented kids who have been a part of our program:  

Jenae McFarland 

Jenae attended the CGTV program in June of 2015. In her words, it was one of the “best decisions I have made in my life.” After being professionally packaged, she was able to perform in front of over 15 Hollywood agents. You read that right, she received over 15 callbacks!

MacKenzie Dunne

MacKenzie attending CGTV’s summer programming. After her experience, she was offered work almost immediately. Her biggest role is Shelby on Best Friends Whenever on the Disney Channel. MacKenzie’s parents credit the CGTV program with helping open up the doors to many great opportunities.

These are just two in thousands of success stories from CGTV grads. Part of the reason our graduates realize such great success is that we don’t forget about them once they leave our programs. We are consistent in following through to ensure that they are staying the course to reach their dreams.

So does our program work? The answer is unequivocally, yes! If an actor puts the time and effort into the consistency needed to make it in the entertainment business, the possibilities for future success are endless.  Coupling talented kids with a program that is provides them the tools they need as well best connections in the industry provides another step in the right direction.

“My name is Jenae McFarland and I wanted to share with you all my personal experience with CGTV. I attending the program in June of 2015 and I must say that was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I remember thinking there was no way I could afford the program. For me, It was totally outside of my means and It felt like too big of an obstacle. However, Adrian and Virgil believed in me from the beginning. Virgil encouraged me not to give up and he told me,”if it’s meant to be things will work out.” He was right. (Thanks, Virgil! )
The truth is No one succeeds alone. So thanks to family, hard work, and people who believed in me I got there!! I gained so much from that week, Invaluable industry info, friendships with like-minded people, new opportunities, and I learned from actual industry working professionals. I forgot to mention that I was packaged professionally and got to perform in front of 15+ agents. Just saying! Adrian created a door of opportunity that I went through. Everyone in my class except one got at least one callback. Some of my friends received multiple ones. None of us can control the outcome the only thing we can do is prepare and walk through the door when it opens.

All that to say my experience was invaluable. For one week I got off the treadmill of my ordinary life, invested into my future and was poured into. It felt as if a part of me came alive again. I had a dream that had been shelved for years. And just being In that environment caused my fire for acting and life to return. I had no idea that it all started with one decision.

I am still on that journey. No, I’m not famous and I haven’t been on TV, but I have done some local musicals, a web commercial, some student film projects. The fire and passion are still lit inside of me. I now am privileged to work with kids and use the arts to help build self-esteem, create relationships, and cultivate children in their gifts. This may seem small to you but for me, it is a way to give back.

By the way, Adrian R’Mante continues to respond quickly to questions and still encourages me to follow my dreams. He doesn’t forget about you when you leave and he keeps his word. I trust him and completely support his program. He has had many success stories not to mention puts his own career on the beck burner to create opportunities and invest in others. Thank you, Adrian! I honor and appreciate you from the bottom of my heart!” – Jenae McFarland
