GGIF Presents a New Genre of Reality Film Making -Hollywood Dreams Come True
New Indy production company, Golden Goose Independent Films, sees a marriage between film-making and reality television on the immediate horizon.
"HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE" will give two So Cal women a chance at possible overnight stardom, pacing them as co-stars, opposite hot, Hollywood, hunky actors. The reality show will target "Real Women of Southern California" in its first of 35 movie projects using this creative model. "We're looking for housewives, coeds, starlets, and more," says Joanne Busch, president of GGIF. "We're looking for women of all ethnicities, big, small, it doesn't matter, as long as you're at least 18 years old, and have a sincere passion for acting. We're looking for real women to co-star opposite "McDreamy" type hunks in our first romantic-comedy, "I'm Not Fat!"
Billion dollar franchise," High School Musical' has taken a similar approach, with their latest reality show, 'Get in the Picture'" continued Busch, "our methodology is more in depth, if not a million times riskier, since we're actually banking on finding two star-quality women in So Cal, to act as leads in a low-budget Indy film, opposite A-list talent. To my knowledge, it has never been done."
GGIF, a West Hollywood based entity, plans on enlisting the aid of both popular male and female A-list talent, who want to give back to movie fans by helping them realize their acting dreams. According to Busch, "HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE" will employ proven elements already in play by successful reality programs like, "So You Think You Can Dance," "Nashville Star," and others. "Ours is a polyglot of things already working with the American viewing audience. We add value by giving back to them. We're helping real viewers realize unattainable dreams. It's exciting! Everyone who enters will be seen. Imagine, one minute you're a homemaker, drooling over a hunky actor, the next minute, you're on set doing a hot scene with him. It's a girl's fantasy come true. We're revitalizing the star making machine from Hollywood's golden era."
Although GGIF has not secured a distribution deal for "HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE" Busch is confident once the message reaches demographic savvy network managers, the show will be picked up. "We're playing to the most coveted market... women," says a bright eyed Busch.
"HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE" competitions include: Screen Tests, Dancing, Swimsuits, a live-in (Big Brother style) training academy, and hopefully a brand new cross-collateralization never seen before," Busch explains. "We want to take our cast to other reality sets, like a day with the "American Gladiators,"
Earlier this year GGIF sold one of 37 original screenplays to Kurt Nam, producer for Golden Dragon, LLC for an undisclosed sum. "Spin the Bottle," a high school stoner flick belonging to GGIF is currently in pre-production. "We have no problem liquidating rights to any of our properties,"
"Hopefully A-list agent and managers reading this will involve their clients in this humanitarian effort, to give back to the audiences that have made their careers. We have 22 top-tier vehicles for people like, Sharon, Nicole, Meryl and more. We're targeting women, with incredible stories to entertain them. We need A-list help."
GGIF hopes to also secure top name hosts for "HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE." "Among our short list," states Busch, "is Cat Deely, Jewel, Natasha Henstridge, and Joely Fisher. Offers haven't gone out yet. We've just tweaked our first 6 episode (treatments)

"We're brand new," says Busch, "So we have to be creative with our resources. We want to create as much excitement for our girls as we can. We're giving away a brand new car, and a year's free gasoline among our consolation prizes Every girl who registers is eligible for our world wide 'Matchmaker Sevice.' We thought it would be a bonus touch to allow male viewers a chance to meet our ladies on an international playing field. Everyone wins with "HOLLYWOOD DREAMS COME TRUE!"
