"I loved the classes at Thinking Actors. I learned so many screen techniques. Peter always gave us so much energy and held the space for each of us to learn and grow. In a positive environment you always learn faster and Peter definitely provides this in his classes!" KH 

"Absolutely brilliant. Very informative and great guidance through a scene and its portrayal. I loved how Peter covered the purpose of script and character. Great information about casting directors and what they or one should expect. I cannot praise this Script to Screen workshop enough. I will definitely recommend and certainly be following and coming to another. Peter is just what any actor needs in this industry: support, creative structure and determination to deliver" JS 

"Loved every minute...Great deconstruction of scenes and put back together with the tools to produce confident and real scenes. The course exceeded my expectations" RT
