TV5 had Star Factor who discovered Eula Caballero (Grand Winner) and Ritz Azul.
Now they are into new discovery with Artista Academy wherein the lucky hopefuls from the 13,000 who attended the one-day grand auditions held last June 19 at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.
As Artista Academy students, all 16 finalists will be given fullscholarship to the Asian Academy of Television Arts (AATA) to undergo a comprehensive curriculum-based training with the best and highly esteemed professionals in the industry, including multi-awarded director Joel Lamangan, music master Louie Ocampo, dance guru Georcelle Dapat of G Force.
By the end of the competition, Artista Academy will announce the Best Actor and Best Actress who will win a total of P20 Million plus lead roles in a forthcoming TV5 teleserye. Not only will they be certifiedprofessional actors after they finish their course from AATA, they will also be the richest winners in the history of all talent searches in the country.
Artista Academy airs from Monday to Saturday after Wil Time Bigtime.Marvin Agustin is the reality host who shares with viewers the 16 Students’ journey every night while Cesar Montano takes charge as the Live Exam Presentor every Saturday. Sitting in as Live Exam Critics are Lorna Tolentino, Gelli De Belen, and TV5 Talent Center Head and renowned TV and film director Mac Alejandre.
Eversince the show premiered, I could say that Marvin is not doing a good job, he is so bland and talks with less excitement that could trigger an audience to tune in. The show is an eye candy with those good looking contestants but the host fails.Cesar is the one that is great in what he do.
Here are the 16 hopefuls in their solo shots
Comparing Artista Academy to Star Factor, I could say that the contestants are more gorgeous and more good looking in Artista Academy. But hoping that whatever the result, there will be good exposure provided for all of them, whether they will win or not since in Star Factor, only two stars registered on me and they are Eula and Ritz. The rest are unfortunately not given good exposure that they just skipped my mind.
Here’s a peek of the Star factors to refresh our minds about them.
