"PILOT PREP" MASTERCLASS - Matt Newton Acting Studio

  • Matt Newton Acting Studio 115 W 30th St Suite 303 New York, NY 10001 United States (map)


Nov. 7, 14, 28 (skips Nov. 21)

For professional actors who want to work with a former major casting director on challenging audition scripts to prepare them for pilot season. Audition, industry referral or invite only.   There are 76 TV shows now filming in New York.  Are you ready to book work? This is an ongoing "real world" audition gym for professional actors who want to work on scripts outside their comfort zone in an honest, safe environment.   Maria will assign challenging TV scripts each week (tailored to each actor's individual strengths and weaknesses), with a focus on guest star and series regular roles, or actors can bring in their own audition scripts.   Maria will offer her unique casting perspective (from 10 years of casting at Fox) to coach each actor on bringing the script to life, and putting their authentic stamp on the script (through improvisation, etc.), and making strong choices with little preparation time (sides are sent 1-2 days before each class).   All students work each week, and receive a video of their work.  Limited to 10 actors.    *AUDITION REQUIRED
