One day "TV Audition Intensive" with Matt Newton 

IMG_3908.jpg

For professional level young actors with tv/film representation and training, this popular one day workshop comes highly recommended by agents and managers.    Limited to 10 serious students in each session, students will be assigned both a comedy and drama script, and Matt will coach them to bring their scripts to life and enhance their audition skills in an ultra competitive audition setting.  This is an exclusive "real world" workshop for serious young actors who want to book jobs, learn to make strong choices with little prep time, learn to bring their personality to the script, and learn how to audition for different genres, whether it be one hour drama, half hour single camera comedy, or multi-camera comedy.     Actors will learn to make strong choices, to break down a script quickly, memorization skills, and how to connect to a script in a short amount of time (usually scripts are sent the night before).   All students receive a video of their work after class, as well as a written critique.  

We have a strict 48 hour cancellation policy.  If you cancel within 48 hours of the class, no refunds will be issued.

The On-Camera Experience (Summer Program) with Matt Newton

IMG_3907.jpg

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.

Still will learn:

  • Auditioning for comedy vs. drama in the current TV market
  • The tv and film casting process
  • Playing against type
  • Cold-reading
  • Memorization skills with little prep time
  • Script analysis (beats, moments, tone)
  • Character development (behavior, point of view, relationship)
  • Improvisation
  • Working "on set" with different camera angles, marks (students will get to direct scenes)
  • Audition etiquette
  • 10-4:30pm (half hour in house lunch break every day)
