Who knew a 30 second PSA could be so involved??? Whew! This challenge was right on time with the global issues awareness aspect and overall I thought they all did very well. As the field of competitors narrows, everyone seems to be sharpening every skill they have
including the get along skill. And when I saw Evie hug Schliz when he got eliminated, I knew there was a chance for peace in the middle east. I had reservations about letting Schliz go. I think hes very talented, I like his personality, and were judging producers not cameramen. But the points the judging panel made were valid and his shots were overexposed. Its also a reminder that todays producers need to be multi-taskers of a new breed. Those that can shoot, do audio, do voice-overs, get on camera if need be, edit, direct, heck DO IT ALL!! And thats what were looking for .So, needless to say, I REALLY love this show Americas Next Producer! Ive be...
What is it about childrens television shows that make everyone who watches them immediately revert to 6 year old? Hahahaha.. It was so cute to see all of the producers faces light up when they saw the set and realized what the challenge was. Hip Hop Harry is one of the best kid shows out there, but dare I say that Shelby the Sea Turtle could give him a run for his money
ok, maybe not, but I would buy it for my kids right now
that is, if I had kids
but thats soooo 2 episodes ago.2 things: I wanna pinch Claude Brooks cheeks and Gelila Asres is one of the most beautiful and savvy women on the PLANET!! Yall better WORK!!! I am really happy with how well this challenge went. Everyone stepped up and acted like they know what theyre doing! Jessica has GREAT ideas
shes the concept woman. Zos really strong musical talent showed up. Evie is really, really good at brainstorming and progressing a thought in...
The first thing I hear from one of the staff as I arrive at the stage on a Friday afternoon in May (exactly one week after the first elimination panel): They behaved themselves in front of the children.Well, thats a relief. After the first few judging panels, in which many of the contestants acted like petulant children, sniping and fighting among each other like schoolyard brats, a little civility would be welcome. (Although as it turns out, taking too high a road would turn out to be one contestants downfall.)I get a sense today isnt an ordinary one when Im told the kids are upstairs in school, and theyre not talking about the wannabe producers for once. Theyre talking actual kids, child performers, who took part in executing the latest challenge. (I dont get to meet them, but thats not a surprise, as the shows producers tend to keep us away from the actual process.)As we get ready for the taping of the ...
It's odd how I am growing to like elimination. In our society, most of us are raised to believe that we are supposed to be nice to everyone, be liked by everyone, not to judge someone may not like us if we have an opinion that disagrees with their own. Remember being on the playground and the threat of someone "not being your friend" having such weight? It feels like kind of the same thing as an adult, that pressure not to express one's dislike of a thing... or a person. To that end, sitting in judgment of the work of these producers every week has been liberating for me on the other hand, I'm still feeling a bit of guilt for dashing the dreams of another human being simply based on the taste of a few. Tonight's elimination brought me more guilt than pleasure. This challenge was the most intricate yet, involving a full crew, actors, sets, and still very little post-production time to put it all together. Scripted comedy, as has been said many times, is possibly the har...

To quote myself, as Ive been known to do: Reality television creates celebrities out of almost anyone. That line, spoken during the judging panel, pretty much sums up the theme of this episode.It also applies to this weeks guest judge, Chris Moore, who became famous as the no-holds-barred taskmaster of HBOs pioneering docu-reality series Project Greenlight. Chris is a larger-than-life personality, as anyone knows who's watched Greenlight. Hes funny and bawdy, yet as I get to know him during the long course of a shoot on a balmy Sunday night, he still seems genuinely surprised that he became a recognizable TV personality by being on a reality show.Hes the perfect choice to guide us through this challenge, which took on an unexpectedly wacky dimension when one of the guest celebs backed out as in threw out his back. As we arrive at the stage, were told of the unusual circumstances: Lorenzo Lamas had dropped out at the ...
