4 week "ON-SET" MASTERCLASS with Matt Newton
Strong industry referral or invite only. Our highest level ON-CAMERA "workout" class for professional working actors with tv and film representation and network level TV credits. This is a real world, challenging, mock on set "gym" (FILMED ON LOCATION EACH WEEK) that is tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of each actor, where actors are not allowed to have scripts, there will be no rehearsals, and they will be expected to show up and tackle their scenes with different shot setups, while Matt gives them direction on the fly. Sometimes we get too comfortable auditioning, and forget what it's like to "act", work with another good actor reading off-camera, and deal with the reality of working on a set. This class is hard, and Matt pushes each actor far outside their comfort zone, learning to play different types, while also giving them the harsh reality of working on set, with marks, redirects, line changes, and scene coverage (master, two shot, over the shoulder, closeup), while giving them only one day to prepare their scene. In the current New York TV market, this is as real as it gets. All students work each week, and receive a video of their work. Limited to 10 serious actors.
