Student Testimonials

“Selftape Your Showreel is your opportunity to receive helpful feedback from an actual casting director and multiple opportunities to get it right in an encouraging environment.

Nicole Chapman 

“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.

“My setup, acting and confidence all improved dramatically throughout this course.I saw a huge improvement in the quality of work I produced from week one to the final scenes. I am very happy with the showreel Peter helped me produce. Peter's informative and enlightening feedback and support lead to many positive changes in my self-tape work. Thank you Peter!”

Jade Plaistow

“Thank you so much, Peter! Training with you changed my life and I can't recommend your courses highly enough to any aspiring actor. ”

Audrey Allen-Moore

“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.

“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

“I have had the privilege of working with Peter in a one-on-one session, completing his Supercharge career course online (SO HELPFUL!) and I'm also currently participating in his scene study course online. Peter has so much passion and amazing knowledge of the craft and I have already learnt so much from him during the short time I've studied with him. So much magical goodness!!! In addition, the courses are so well organised and structured, such great pedagogy! Highly recommend working with Peter if you are serious about taking things to the next level! ”

Tessa Neilson

“Peter is incredibly knowledgeable and kind. Through his incredibly detailed feedback and materials, my acting and confidence improved so much. I am incredibly grateful to Peter for expanding my abilities and techniques. His compassion really helped to bring me out of my shell. Thank you so much Peter and I hope to work with you more in the future!”

Jessica Esfahani

“Peter's Self-Tape Your Showreel course is a great way to get back into acting classes & build a good self-tape routine. Thanks to Peter's critiques, I am now much more confident in my home self-tape set-up & have learnt some new acting techniques that make self-tape scenes much easier to tackle. ”
