Wish me luck! Motor City Masters Car Designer Competition (Airing 6/24)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Tonight at 10pm EST-TruTV, be there!

I dunno if you guys have seen this on the car blogs yet...
http://www.cardesignfetish.com/2013/...nd-customizers

I also don't know if everyone remembers my back ground is as a car designer.

Well I submitted.

First it was a short bio on the website, a picture of myself, and some samples of my design work. No one needs to know my life story, but my short bio is kind of overwhelming to read(two time cancer survivor, loss of my older siblings, kicked around by the car industry etc).

Next day came an email that they were interested.

I had to fill out a huge application, literally my life story, crazy questions, more pictures of myself, more of my designs.

Ok.

Next day. Phone call from the casting director. Loved it. She set up a Skype interview-though not to be thought as an interview-just me myself-type of thing for Today.

That was going to be an hour this afternoon, but it turned into 2+, they literally could not imagine it all happening to one person and loved my story.

So now I am through to only the last 1-2 rounds.

I have to make a 20 minute video where I am in every frame, half about my life, half about cars-a bit of MTV Cribs style.

That video will be put on youtube and submitted for final casting.

I am putting this on the forum as I have a sneaking suspicion that with it being on youtube they will either have people vote or check how many hits the vids are able to generate.


Update June 22:

Cool stuff. I hope that you get it. You can bet on this show being a success since Bunim-Murray productions does the Kardashians' TV shows.

Update

Official finalist.

Being flown to LA this week where I am doing a pysch eval, on screen test where I have to do a drawing demo. I signed the contracts and passed the physical workup/blood test.

Oh, and the sponsor is GM

I should know in about a week or so if I am officially cast.

As predicted, I had an on-the-spot drawing test which I think I did pretty damn well. I had to take a Caddy CTS coupe, sedan, wagon or Escalade and make it a future emergency vehicle. So I took the Coupe and made it a high speed police pursuit vehicle.


I nailed my camera interviews and kept my composure. I came to find out I have been the company favorite for a few weeks now.

It's going to be shot in LA, 5 weeks, starting in mid/end January. I do get some payment for each week of the show which is normally not done, so that is kind of nice.

I got the call tonight, not even 12 hours after getting back that they can't be official yet without the Networks final say, but she said the words "it's no inside secret that you are ridiculously close to being a done deal with everyone involved here".

Good luck buddy. I wanted to be a car designer-had my eyes on Pasadena Art Center. But life changes your plans.

I got word couple weeks ago that I was officially cast.

I fly out 2/22 to start shooting and should be back the 2nd week of April.

Trying to draw everyday and brush up on welding, fiberglass/body work. Figure if I can draw and have metal, fiberglass and basic woodworking, I should have my bases covered.

Right now it's been picked up by TruTV(kinda meh), but Discovery/Velocity is likely going to buy the rights to re-air it. Velocity likes doing that, most of what they air is re-cast they bought the rights to re-air.
