1 week SUMMER ON-CAMERA EXPERIENCE with Matt Newton (and industry guest Peggy Becker from Parkside Mgmt)


This one of a kind, intense, immensely popular weeklong on-camera experience is limited to 12 trained, professional young actors (ages 10-14) who want to work exclusively with Matt on all aspects of tv and film in a small group setting.  Offered once a year, by audition or referral only, Matt works personally with each actor, covering everything from auditioning, to role prep, to working on set.   On the final day, Matt brings in an industry guest to offer another perspective on the business.  This summer camp is for the young motivated actor who wants to be pushed, challenged, and enhance their on-camera acting and audition technique with one of the most respected tv and film coaches in the business.    All actors will work on-camera every day, and parents will receive a video with personal feedback at the end of the session.   Each student will also leave the camp with two professionally filmed audition scenes (one comedy and one drama, handpicked by Matt) to use for their demo reel, online casting profile, or to give to their agents.
