Get Real Productions was founded in 1999 by Sonia Curtis with a creative vision to teach actors, inspire, write, produce and direct various projects in the entertainment industry. The main goal at Get Real Productions is to find and develop new talent and projects and encourage partnership with other talented positive people who bring hard work, good attitudes, dedication and professionalism to their craft.
Sonia decided to establish "Get Real" Productions in 1999, based in Los Angeles in an effort to help and inspire other actors. After many years of teaching in small groups and private coaching she began writing, producing and directing as well. In 2007 Sonia and Jillian McWhirter began a partnership to create several projects together including a supernatural TV drama pilot, “The Prophetess,” a half hour sitcom “Define Family” and also a dramatic action short, “The Negotiator." Sonia also penned an original biographical script called “Love Covers” which deals with overcoming adversity to achieve one’s goals never giving up on one’s dreams. In addition to working on her own craft under the tutelage of her mentor and coach Larry Moss, Sonia has also been asked to direct several actors in various projects. In 2012 Sonia was nominated for best actress in the short film "Deception" at the New York City International Film Festival and was also offered the role of Deputy Goodrich in the action adventure "Relentless Justice." She also recently directed "Signs From Above" a short film with an uplifting spiritual theme which is currently making the film festival circuits.
Jill developed her writing talent while studying at Southern Methodist University. She started her career in entertainment as an actress on the soap opera, “Ryan’s Hope” and has consistently worked in theatre film and television ever since. After the birth of her daughter Jill turned her focus to writing and producing various projects. Since then, she has written several screenplays; including an erotic thriller “In the Dark”, a romantic comedy, “Daddy for Rent” and another thriller, “Where’s My Daughter.” Jill met Sonia while they were both acting in her first film; “Nowhere to Run” directed by Carl Franklin and is now very excited to work with Sonia again in broadening their various talents.
