Guest staring in the new reality television show, RockStar Academy
Recently I had the opportunity to guest star on the television show, RockStar Academy, Road to Becoming a Rock Star. Adam H. Hurstfield, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of RockSTAR Music Corp. is just one of the judges for this reality show. Without giving too much away, this super slick reality series is packed with celebrities and guest stars. Almost everything is captured as camera crews follow seven of the next up and coming singers as they attend a RockStar school "RSA ACADEMY". And yes, anytime you combine ambition with competition AND a camera crew, you will find nothing but pure entertainment!
In this upbeat reality show I stay behind the camera and offer media training to each of the seven contestants.
I help them understand how to handle the media and everything else that comes with it.
For instance, in one exercise I would put contestants on the spot by putting a camera in their face and asking them uncomfortable questions to help them learn how to not crack under pressure.
I had asked one of the female contestant's “are your breasts real?” Some of the contestants handled themselves very well, but there were a few that felt the pressure and had a difficult time answering.
This crash course media training exercise was hilarious! I felt as though we were filming an episode of "punked" (and I was Ashton Kutcher). This was an excellent training course for each of the contestants to better learn how to interact with media, and how to dodge those embarrassing questions.
Aside from the contestants, I had a great time getting to know more about the 2009 Juno Award nominee Elise Estrada.
Stunningly beautiful and talented, Elise was super fun to hangout with. What a voice she has!
Elise confessed that she has never been asked an uncomfortable questions from the media.
I'm thinking she just doesn't get uncomfortable about many things. Rock On Elise!
Here's one of her hit singles "Insatiable"
