Intermediate to AdvancedSanta Barbara - 10 Thursday Nights
Beginning June 15
The revolutionary approach to character emotional life employing the power of the actor’s imagination to create vibrant, lasting images and feelings. These images and feelings support, enliven, and deepen character choices. You experience the character’s experiences. Never lie again! Creates powerful, compelling performances.
Projections employ the "alpha" level of consciousness to tap the deepest sources of creativity and the imagination. Vivid emotional "memories" are created during the meditational state of alpha. The richly detailed fantasies become the character’s autobiography.
When in character, the actor feels as if these projected experiences really happened, therefore, there is no lying and no pushing for reality – character history, circumstances and needs simply exist!
The craft of projections was been developed over a thirty-year period and is especially vital for camera work, where acting has to appear natural and unforced in close-up. Projections replaces problematic emotional homework systems as ”substitution,” “emotional recall,” and the written character biography.

"Projections it is the most valuable technique that I have learned in regard to creation of a character. I found the class experience amazing--not just for myself but also observing what others accomplished. I continue to use the projections process, and find that there is a sense of reality, of depth that one cannot achieve any other way." -J. Allen
"The experience that Peter facilitated for all of us became a foundation for my acting and personal growth in a very profound way. It taught me a completely new way of embodying and accessing my character's psyche by utilizing resources of the unconsciousness. It was magical and quite revolutionary." -O. Yahontova
All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to commit to the entire summer session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.
