We can't say enough times how significant it was for our son Login to be part of iPOP!. It literally changed our lives as a family
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2008
http://www.ipopconvention.com - Six year old Login Wilson was like many young boys in Toronto, Ontario looking for exciting activities to do. His mother, Robin Wilson did what any typical mother would do and signed her son, Login, up for soccer and hockey lessons. But Robin soon noticed that Login wasn't able to keep his focus and seemed to day dream most of the time. So a friend of Robin's recommended that Login go to a locally based acting and modeling school in Toronto. Sure enough Robin did just that and within months Login found himself competing in an international audition and competition for child and teen actors, models, singers and dancers. Login Wilson attended the renowned iPOP! (International Presentation of Performers) in Vancouver, British Columbia with over fifteen hundred other boys and girls auditioning for top agents, managers and casting directors flown in from New York and Los Angeles.
"We can't say enough times how significant it was for our son Login to be part of iPOP!. It literally changed our lives as a family," said Robin Wilson. "I don't think any of us had any idea what we were in for when we first signed up to go to iPOP!. The high level of talent that we saw from other boys and girls as they rehearsed their monologues and practiced their modeling techniques was a bit overwhelming but our son Login jumped right in there and showed those agents what he's got and we are so very proud of him," Robin Wilson went on to say.
Login Wilson competed at iPOP! in acting and modeling and did extremely well placing as first runner-up for fashion print, third runner-up for scene acting, third runner-up for Model of the Year, Top Ten Model Runway, Top 10 Model Swimsuit, Top 10 Actor and he earned honorable mention for Actor of the Year.
When asked to comment, President of iPOP!, Joseph Beauchamp said, "Login Wilson is a natural at acting and modeling. Along with several other team members at iPOP!, I noticed Login's spark immediately when he took the stage for his auditions and knew he had something extra that would help him stand out. This is what iPOP! is all about, we give children and young adults from all parts of the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom the opportunity to audition in front of top agents, managers and casting directors in the entertainment and modeling business."
"Time and time again we notice how these young kids build their self confidence and self esteem on stage and in front of the audition cameras and they also get jobs and careers from attending iPOP! as well. We're very happy for the Wilson family," Beauchamp continued.
Login Wilson's mother was impressed with how committed and focused Login became while attending iPOP!. "Regardless of what position he was in, he was in the top ten, and he was recognized for his efforts. That just blew us away," Robin said. "I've never seen Login so happy before. If kids get a new movie or a new toy - they get excited, but this is different. Login was going up to the iPOP! stage for a trophy or a medallion, but this was bigger and better than Christmas. He went up seven times and this completely built his self esteem," ended Robin Wilson.
International Presentation of Performers, iPOP! is the successful merger of the music and acting industry with fashion and modeling, creating one of the largest and most well respected events for aspiring actors, singers, dancers and models to attend. Inaugurated in July 2005 with two conventions annually, iPOP! has already introduced close to seven thousand talented children, teenagers and young adults to the most respected agents, managers, producers and casting agents in the business today. iPOP! participants ranging from the ages of six to twenty-five years old attend iPOP! events knowing in many cases that their audition may lead to modeling contracts with Wilhelmina, Elite, MMG or LA Models as it already has for several recent iPOP! graduates who have done fashion layouts for such industry giants as Glamour Magazine, JC Penny, Mervins, Target, Teen Magazine and Seventeen Magazine. iPOP! auditions can lead to a national commercial as was the case for recent iPOP! participants who appeared in commercials for Motorola, Cingular, L'Oreal, McDonalds, Band-Aid and Microsoft Windows.
At iPOP! children, teenagers and young adults audition in front of agents in specific industry categories headshots, commercial and television print, fashion print and runway, television, singing, dancing, monologue, scene and swimsuit. In the last three years iPOP! attendees have booked appearances on Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Scrubs, Entourage, Hannah Montana, Zoey 101, Criminal Minds, Bones, Law & Order and Grey's Anatomy. They have appeared in films such as Blood Oranges, Crossing Over with Harrison Ford and The Number 23 with Jim Carey.
