We are elated to announce our newest partner, International Wrestling Cartel in Pittsburgh! In conjunction with IWC, we will present our newest variety of Seminar and Live Event, the first installment of RISE – Lights, Camera, ACTION: The Art of TV Series!
This new Seminar series will be focused on training and developing wrestlers and wrestling personalities skills and abilities specific to performing in a television taping environment. Training will cover facets of in-ring performance and beyond.
Facilitators for these Seminars will include industry veterans currently involved in wrestling television production and those with longstanding history and world renown experience as writers, producers and talents with some of the business’ top televised brands.
The first RISE – LCA Seminar takes place May 11 at IWC’s Iron City Wrestling Academy. This is a full day Seminar and will have multiple facilitators, the first we can confirm today is Jimmy Jacobs.
Jimmy Jacobs returns to RISE, this time lending his nearly 20 years of experience as a formal trainer. Jacobs has vast experience working in some of the highest pressure TV environments. As a writer for WWE, Jacobs was an integral part of creation and execution of weekly, episodic television, including the wildly popular “List of Jericho” and so much more. Jacobs is currently involved with IMPACT Wrestling with roles both on and off camera.
“Jimmy Jacobs’ creative process and attention to detail is something I hope every aspiring wrestler has the chance to see. He has an obvious passion for everything he does. That passion is contagious and helps bring out the best in others. Jimmy being part of our team is incredibly important to what we are trying to do,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.
May 12, we will put talents to the test as this event presented by IWC and RISE will be run not just as a single Live Event. This will be written, performed and executed in the same manner as a television taping, filming several installments of weekly, episodic content. This content will be made available to a worldwide audience at a later date, however we cannot disclose the distribution and viewing details at this time.
What additional facilitators and producers will be part of the first RISE – Lights, Camera, ACTION outing? What talents will be part of the tapings? How will the Prospective Talent Pool of Seminar Participants factor into the equation?
These any many other questions will be answered very soon!
Thank you to our new partners at IWC for helping make all of this possible, adding yet another layer to a very exciting 2018 for RISE!
