Erik Lingvall, TAC Director
Erik first moved to Los Angeles in 2000 to pursue acting. Within his first year, Erik booked two national commercials and several roles in a variety of independent films. Next, by parlaying his acting experience and a growing list of industry contacts, he played his business hand by partnering in film and television production.

After producing a variety projects, he was offered a position as the Director of Scouting with one of the most respected direct scouting companies in the acting industry. With this position Erik had the opportunity to facilitate hundreds of open calls throughout the country, and meet thousands of aspiring actors and parents. During his 5 years with the company, Erik helped assist in the success of hundreds of actors. This experience also led him to realize that there was a major void in the early stages of an actor's career. He saw many actors and their parents come up short simply because of a lack of the right tools and knowledge. In 2009 he came up with a solution to fill this void, The Acting Camp. The concept was to give young actors and parents a solid stepping-stone to steer their career in the right direction. Utilizing his array of influential players in the acting business, Erik created The Acting Camp with the hopes of educating, inspiring and helping guide young actors and their parents to a successful career!

Erik Lingvall
...
Now a 15-year industry veteran, Erik Lingvall, like many actors, moved to Los Angeles at 21 with dreams of being an actor-and no plans on how to make it happen. In the first six months, he says he learned "everything not to do, and now [my students] can make the most of my mistakes!"
After five years of making valuable missteps, the Atlanta-based Lingvall (winner of the city's Readers' Choice acting coach category) moved into film and television production, founded the Acting Camp (TAC)-helping parents and their actor kids steer their careers in the right direction-and became a coach.
"I didn't start focusing on instruction specifically until I got to Atlanta," he says of his decision to teach after moving from L.A. to the South (though TAC is based in Southern California). "I've worked with a variety of coaches, which became the catalyst to becoming an instructor for the last four years."
The current director of TAC, he started the program before meeting his wife and relocating to Atlanta after catching whiffs of the growing entertainment industry in the tax-incentivized state.
"At that time I really started to understand [Atlanta] was booming," he explains. "And now the market is growing quicker than anyone anticipated and there's a need for prepared, professional actors, and for a lot of actors to say, 'This isn't a hobby.' This is something that takes time and passion and energy."
To help foster that professional and passionate actor locally, he began helping with events and workshops at local acting studios, giving him additional experience, perspectives, and assets in different facets of the industry to later bring to his students.
"I've worked with casting directors, agents, managers-whether through workshops or events-and what that's done is given me a lot of professional practice," he says.
...
For Lingvall, capturing that emotion in your character is about training hard so you're confident, remembering why you act in the first place, and letting yourself be vulnerable.
"No, we don't want perfection when we watch movies-we want human," he says.
