4-week FILM ACTING BOOTCAMP with Bryan Manley Davis


Learn the basics of MN Acting Studio's approach to tv and film acting in a safe, non judgmental setting, with a focus on listening, confidence, dissolving your fears, and using your imagination to fully embrace the moment and approach all of your work with specificity and authenticity.   Actors will work with current scripts to learn the essence of on-camera acting, and how to keep their work simple and real.  Bryan will assign scripts each week a few days before and coach each actor to bring the script to life through different exercises.

Actors can take the class as many times as they would like, with further learning each round.  All actors receive a video of their work.  Limited to 10 students.  At the end of the final class Bryan will do a Q&A about the business of acting, where to find auditions, how to get an agent or manager, and what to do next.

For students with basic acting training who want to learn techniques for acting for the camera using carefully assigned scripts each week.

*October 13, 20, 27, Nov 3 (hold date Nov 10th)

*November 17, 24, Dec 1, 8 (hold date Dec 15th)

*The waitlist doesn’t mean the class is full. Everyone on the waitlist will be sent an email with a signup link two weeks before class. We will then take registrations on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are signing up for the waitlist it is assumed you have already auditioned for the studio with Matt Newton. If you have not auditioned yet, check the website for the next available round of open studio auditions.


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. We don’t offer credits or refunds for missed classes or no-shows.

*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.

If you miss more than one class per round, we are unable to guarantee your spot for the next round.
