Student Testimonials

“Peter has truly taught me the art of ‘subtlety on camera’ when auditioning for a role. He utilises his techniques and exercises so wonderfully in the moment, that before I knew it I was no longer “acting” or “pushing”, I was simply was telling the truth. He has enabled me to learn what is important when auditioning for film and TV and what to simply throw away. Not only is Peter an amazing teacher, he is also a real ally in championing his students all the way to reaching their goals. I simply couldn’t have gotten where I am today without his help and guidance.”

Emily Weir, Actress: Home and Away.

“It’s rare to find a person so dedicated to extracting the best out of a performance or the artist. I had the pleasure of working with Peter in two self-tests, both very last minute and time stressed. Through workshopping and direction we explored together to come up with two tests that I walked away proud of; which to me is the aim of the game. Knowing you’ve put your best foot forward and your hat in the ring for a part is the beginning and the end of our work sometimes. If you can say you’ve done that, you’ve done your work.Oh, and I got the job. Maybe both.”

Ryan Corr, Actor: Packed to the Rafters, House of the Dragon.

“Peter Rasmussen brings his years as a casting director and actor to his coaching with an eclectic mix of wisdom, humor and insight. He is a gentle yet honest coach with great compassion. I highly recommend the professional as well as the beginner to work with this man!”

Laura Gardner, Actress: The Romanoffs, Fresh Off The Boat.

“I cannot rate or rave about Peter Rasmussen Casting high enough! A wonderful human, who is a supportive Casting Director and generous acting coach. As actors, we are lucky to have him available to us in Queensland. I have done a few courses with Peter over the years, and I always learn so much which improves my acting for the next job or audition. In regards to castings, Peter has a wonderful way of directing actors in the room. He makes you feel at ease, thereby, getting the best performance from you. If you are looking for that next step towards levelling up your craft, then I urge you, do your artistry a favour and sign up for one of Peter's courses...or a few. ”

“Peter is a pleasure to work with and learn from. His lessons are clear and interactive, and he genuinely cares about helping his students improve at their craft. I've taken so much away from my time with Peter that I'll use both professionally and personally. I can't wait to work with him again and would recommend his courses to any level of actor.”

Kim O

“The Audition lecture was engaging, informative and very insightful. Have recently participated in his Uta Hagen (onsite) and Showreel (online) courses and can't recommend Peter highly enough. He knows the business, the craft and how to get the best out of aspiring and experienced actors.”
