"Peter Blackburn is a force of creativity like you have never experienced. It's hard to describe the profound impact of his training and directing methods, and I will give it a go, however the foremost advice I would give any actor is; if you can work with him, work with him. Peter has such great respect for actors' autonomy and with one word will lead you to make incredible, brave and sometimes confronting choices that fuel a deep understanding of your character, your text and yourself. While thoughts and discussions often have many layers of complexity, Peter frames his notes to be easily digestible for the actor. He gives actors confidence to put forward thoughts and ideas and welcomes open and passionate discourse. Beyond the accolades, awards and prolific positions he has held, Peter is a kind, encouraging and compassionate human who will unlatch your preconceived ideas of acting and invigorate your energy and love for the craft."
