Reality TV Looking Up!

By The Special Guests Publicity Service

While the immense and still growing popularity of reality television has been a surprise in the entertainment industry, the cycle of its evolution has not. Just like with other genres, the proliferation of reality TV seems to be moving producers to push the envelope with each new series . . . hence, programs that seek to glorify or exploit promiscuous behavior, divorce and, though denied by a judge, corrupt Illinois governors.

In the end, however, this sets the stage for originality that is much more positive and uplifting, which is precisely what audiences can expect from Inspired Ambition, a new reality TV series from Cloud Ten Pictures.

godreality.jpgCloud Ten CEO, Andre van Heerden, is available for interviews to discuss the backstory of this reality saga that follows the life and "ambition" of Erica Lane, a singer pursuing a career in Christian music.

In addition to exploring the storyline itself, van Heerden can comment on reality TV and the entertainment industry in general, and talk about why Cloud Ten - the production company built on Christian feature films such as the Left Behind series and Ving Rhames' Saving God - decided to make its first foray into television with this Inspired Ambition program.

Time permitting, van Heerden can also discuss some of the other projects underway with Cloud Ten, including the distribution of a new independent Christian film, The River Within, and he can even refer to his depth of experience to discuss broader issues impacting the value of entertainment today, such as censorship and Christian persecution through political correctness.

Call Special Guests now to arrange an interview.

Andre van Heerden has been working in practically every aspect of film and video production for more than 15 years. His very first documentary, done as a video thesis at Carleton University's prestigious Journalism school, was sold to the National Film Board of Canada. Since then he has produced, written, directed, and post-supervised numerous documentaries, dozens of TV programs, and countless numbers of commercials, trailers, infomercials, and special features.

Most notably Mr. van Heerden directed the feature films, REVELATION, TRIBULATION, JUDGMENT and DECEIVED; wrote the features JUDGMENT and LEFT BEHIND: WORLD AT WAR; co-produced LEFT BEHIND: THE MOVIE and LEFT BEHIND II: TRIBULTION FORCE and produced LEFT BEHIND: WORLD AT WAR. He is widely respected and liked by the cast and crews that he works with and has become one of the most well-known and accomplished filmmakers within the Christian film market.

Cloud Ten Pictures was founded in 1996 by brothers Peter and Paul Lalonde. The company is the market leader in the production and marketing of faith-based films.

Its 2000 release of LEFT BEHIND: THE MOVIE, was the top-selling independent video of that year. Cloud Ten has produced and distributed 10 successful feature films and has strong distribution arms through KOCH Entertainment and CNI, as well as through Cloud Ten Church Cinemas.
