Reality Ravings Consulting Is Now Launched
Big news for Reality Ravings, I have launched Reality Ravings Consulting. It is the first reality TV consultancy in Australia. Don’t worry the blog will be continuing to operate.
One aspect of the new business is to assist potential reality TV stars with their applications.
Here is a copy of the media release I am circulating and also you can click on the Reality Ravings Consultancy button to the left:
Emma Ashton, publisher of leading reality TV blog Reality Ravings (www.realityravings.com) has launched Australia’s first reality TV consultancy.
Reality Ravings Consulting will offer expert advisory services to both potential reality show contestants, and to the shows themselves.
“Throughout the four years I’ve been publishing Reality Ravings, I’ve had a stream of people ask for my advice on how to apply for reality TV shows,” Ms Ashton said.
“Plenty of people want to be on reality shows, but don’t always have the skills or know-how to make it happen. Many shows get thousands of applications. So to get even close to a camera, you need a stand-out application. This is where my new service comes in.”
After years as a leading commentator on reality TV, Ms Ashton has the inside knowledge to help make a potential reality star’s initial application shine.
For a flat fee of $275 clients will get:
- A consultation over skype or phone;
- A tailored application drafted and sent to the applicant to upload online or send in; and
- Ongoing advice when they get to the interview rounds.
Ms Ashton is not affiliated with any casting agency, television network or production company, and confidentiality is guaranteed.
“I cannot guarantee they will get an interview or onto the show. However I can provide a well-crafted application that highlights you as a potential reality star,” Ms Ashton said.
“There are more reality shows being made, however more people are applying,“ said Ms Ashton.
Masterchef Australia has over 8,000 applications each year. In its first season The Amazing Race Australia online application had over 100,000 hits, and Bargain Hunt had 14,000 applications in the first 24 hours from Australian fans wanting to be on the show”
“Everybody has the potential to be a reality star, they just need to ensure their application gets more than a cursory glance by the casting agent or producers.
Other services Reality Ravings Consulting will provide are:
