Alberni boy auditions for Vancouver reality show

A former Port Alberni resident who was part of ADSS and Capitol Theatre drama groups has auditioned for The Real Hipsters of Vancouver

A former Port Alberni resident who was part of drama groups at ADSS and the Capitol Theatre has auditioned for a Vancouver reality show about hipsters.

Myles Schroeder, 24, created and edited a video piece he sent in to producers of the reality show ‘The Real Hipsters of Vancouver’.

“I thought it would be neat to be part of a reality show so I too a chance,” the now Vancouverite said. “I’ve always been a bit of a risk taker anyway.”

The audition was in March and shooting will take place this summer. Schroeder hasn’t heard if his tryout was successful or not.

The hipster subculture is made up of men and women from age 20- 30 who value independent thinking, counter-culture, and an appreciation of art and indie-rock.

The Huffington Post describes Schroeder’s video as “…a skinny jeans-wearing comic book aficionado who introduces himself with the most surreal version of T-Pain’s “Apple Bottom Jeans” you’ll ever hear.”

He grew up in Port Alberni and went to ADSS, where he graduated from in 2006.  He was part of ADSS drama, as well as a participant in Capitol Theatre productions.

In his audition video, Schroeder re-wrote a song by the group Low and did a self interview about my interests, which include comics, film and travel.

He even listed his pet-peeve, which he describes as “Trying to get around Vancouver is like trying to walk though a mob of uncoordinated molasses.”

The Shaw Cable employee spend his days working and weekends sleeping, clubbing, and enjoying Vancouver’s beaches.

He gets back to Port Alberni periodically, where he visits his favourite beach. “Nothing compares to Sproat Lake in the summer,” he said.
