Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2009
Reality U, a new facility led by casting directors, producers and trainers, has opened its doors to those eager to get a competitive edge in the reality television audition process.
For every person who goes from an unknown to stardom on a reality TV show, there are literally thousands of equally talented people who can't get past the initial interview. The truth is, with huge fan followings and even longer lines to audition for the top reality shows, it is imperative that a person has all the tools and knowledge to shine when they finally get to the audition.
Reality U provides aspiring stars with tools to convince the decision makers that they have what it takes to have American fall in love with them. The facility is taught by casting directors, producers, motivational speakers and professional celebrity trainers to provide expert training techniques during an August 22 seminar at Shutters on the Beach.
Space is limited and seats are expected to go quickly.
With top industry insiders, students will receive unique perspectives on how to 'play the game'.
One of those experts is Art Mortell, widely considered one of the best motivational speakers in the world. Mortell has made over four thousand presentations around the world, and was ranked as America's No. 1 Technology motivational speaker at the Project Leadership Conference in France.
Mortell's professional training in Reality U's workshops will emphasize taking on new challenges and succeeding in a competitive world, thriving on stress and utilizing the anxiety as added energy for achievement and developing the confidence to step on stage and perform successfully under pressure.
Another industry leader is photographer Christopher Ameruoso, whose work has been featured in magazines like People, In Style, US Weekly to name a few. Ameruoso's award-winning photography and outgoing personality has got him featured on The Girls Next Door, Criss Angel's Mindfreak and Groomer Has It amongst others.
To help with the proper look, Reality U has hired personal celebrity trainer Manny Bujold. The seven-time Sport Karate World champion's no-nonsense approach leads to better muscle tone, as well as weight loss and improved athletic ability.
The program will also include performers like Jill Michele Melean, famous for her reoccurring roles on Comedy Central shows MADtv and Reno 911. The actress said: "When you're an actor, you are given a character. When you are on reality television you are your 'own' character."
To help with casting matters, Reality U has employed Adam Garcia, whose extensive reality show experience includes casting and associate producing shows for TruTV, LOLO, Discovery and Bravo. His shows include 'Cash Cab', 'Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz' and 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List'. Adam is currently one of the producers of MTV's 'Sex … with Mom and Dad' starring Dr. Drew Pinsky, and a development producer with the New York production company 4th Row Films.
