“Not only does Erik have this amazing ability to see the potential in every performer and to bring it out in a supportive and loving way. But, he always gives you his best and expects the best out of you. That’s what makes him a great teacher. I don’t believe that you can get a better quality self tape in Atlanta than you can with Erik Lingvall. That’s just the truth. When it comes to the big auditions, he’s always my first choice. He has a wonderful eye and he works with you to get your best work on tape. I booked my top of show role recurring role on Resurrection from a tape I did with him.”

Allison Hunter (parent of Elizabeth) – The Jersey Boys, Nashville, MTV’s Finding Carter

liz“After meeting Erik, Elizabeth signed with two agents and a manager in LA, and has been working consistently on commercials, tv, print and film. Elizabeth absolutely would not be where she is without Erik and his acting camp. For me, the most exciting thing has been to see Elizabeth’s confidence grow in leaps and bounds since meeting Erik. The shy little girl who was afraid to sing karaoke is now fearless. That carries over into auditions, which has led to her booking jobs! However, it’s not just great for acting – it will benefit her in every area of her life, whether she continues acting as an adult or not. Erik’s positive energy and outlook on life is contagious, and I’m so thankful that he helped Elizabeth learn that dedication and hard work can also be a lot of FUN!”

“Erik KNOWS the people in this business and can see this industry from a kids/ parents point of view. He is not only part of your team, but can help you build that team. If you have a chance to work with Erik for a week, a weekend or several weekends, do it. It is worth the investment. You’re not going to find someone else who is as passionate about helping actors succeed.”

“In the world of child actors and their parents, one rarely finds an Erik. His warm dedication to those who want to travel down the path to professional acting is unsurpassed. Rarely have I met someone who cares so much. Erik has a great understanding of the arduous journey parents must take as well – he educates them with respect and guides them with all the knowledge he has garnered from his work and from his interactions with the professionals who are in the trenches. You are in good hands!”

gil“I have had the privilege of working with Erik Lingvall for a few years with The Acting Camp. What keeps me coming back is Erik’s endless enthusiasm for and knowledge about the business. Aside from pulling from his own experiences, he has access to so many resources in the industry and is constantly working to gain the knowledge necessary to guide talent in the right direction. Erik Lingvall is a down to earth person and someone to trust when you are trying to navigate this overwhelming business. And having been in this business for almost 20 years, someone like Erik is the guy you want in your corner.”
