Matthew Summersgill

I come from the theatre world. I spent a lot of time there, both regionally and in New York. Then I worked a day job at Actors' Equity Association and the Director's' Guild of America for the next 10+ years.

Now, I write screenplays.

Do you need help with:
Running lines?
Scene study?
Character breakdown?
Advice and coaching?

I love actors and really love helping people get better and/or get that job!

Reach out if you're looking for a fun, focused, and moderately talented partner!
