TV and Film Classes

AUDITIONS

All adult classes are by audition only Once a month, Matt Newton meets with new students and suggests the appropriate class (we announce auditions on social media, so follow us on Instagram). If you have already auditioned for Matt and been accepted, you can put yourself onto the waitlist for the next round of that class. As all classes are ongoing, and there are only 10 students in each, we give current students first dibs on holding their spot for the next round. Once we know how many openings we have, we send out a link to the students on the waitlist, and it’s first come, first serve. If you don’t get in, you can put yourself on the waitlist again for the following month (it’s not automatic).


COOL STUFF

All students receive discounts on audition taping, special workshops, and private coaching at the studio. In addition, all current MN students are invited to join our exclusive Facebook forum to network with the community of actors at the studio.

OUR APPROACH

We are intensely committed to preparing actors for the real world, and therefore we are honest, practical, and to the point. We want you to grow as an actor, and learn the ins and outs of the business, as well as your strengths and weaknesses in front of the camera. In return, we expect that you show up prepared and ready to take big risks and “dare to fail.” That’s the only way to get better. MN creates a safe, honest environment, and encourages actors to work outside their comfort zone.


CLASS FORMAT

All classes are for ages 18 and up, except when noted. Classes are limited to 10 students (for maximum personal attention), and are ongoing, meaning students can stay in the class for as many months as they would like, or can discuss moving to a different class. All students work each week on-camera, and receive a video of their work after each class for further personal review (not to be used for casting websites or demo reels).

POLICIES

We don’t allow auditing. In addition, we don’t offer makeup classes, or refunds for missed classes. If you are unable to make a class, we recommend that you self tape your scene for that week, and the teacher will offer you a full, honest, written critique of your work.

HOLD DATES: At the end of each cycle, we reserve a “hold date.” If the teacher has to cancel one of the four sessions, we will use the hold week. Please keep that date open when you book your class.
