Actors Club and Studio Boh are proud to present a two night acting workshop and intimate conversation with veteran New York actor Matt Servitto. Matt has been working on stage and in front of the camera for over 28 years. Called one of “the hardest working actors” in show biz by Entertainment Weekly, he is probably best known for his role as FBI agent Dwight Harris on the HBO series “The Sopranos”, a role he played for 7 seasons and for which he won a SAG Award in 2007 as a member of the best dramatic ensemble. More recently, he just wrapped his 4th season as “Brock Lotus” on the critically-acclaimed Cinemax series “Banshee” and is currently shooting his 3rd season on the Adult Swim comedy series .“Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell”, where he plays Satan. Additionally he has done recurring roles on Showtime’s “Brotherhood” and NBC’s “Harry’s Law” and “Law and Order”, appeared in countless on-camera commercials, spent 5 years on two different ABC soaps (“All My Children” and “One Life to Live”), and done dozens of feature films(Hitch, Enchanted, Going the Distance, etc.) and independent movies. He studied theater at Wayne State University, BADA (Oxford England) and is a graduate of The Julliard School.
Join Matt as he discusses his experiences in the industry, how to be confident and strong on camera, what it takes to get ahead in today’s market and watch him work with actors on camera to help guide them towards a more realistic, believable performance.
The first night is a chance to get to know Matt, ask question and hear firsthand what it took to gain the success he has in his career. He will also work one on one with actors, see how they handle scripted material, give adjustment to work on and then come back for night two where Matt will re-work the scenes with the actors and discuss the results.
There are two ways to attend the workshop:
One is full participation. You will get a short 2-3 page scene which you will work on during the workshop with Matt’s guidance. It will be recorded for your review. The cost for this is $225. Space for these slots goes fast and, of course, is limited.
The second way to attend is as an observer. An outstanding way to enjoy the conversations, learn, and not feel pressured to perform. The cost to observe is $75. Space is limited.
This workshop is a great opportunity to learn from a working actor who is out there doing the thing we all want…to earn a living as an actor. Space is limited. Sign up early. We will have a wait list if someone has to drop out. All actors’ work will be taped and provided to the actor for review.
