)-- Lynette McNeill Studio, of Los Angeles, California (www.lynettemcneillstudio.com), an acting school located in the heart of Hollywood, hosted its “Defining Moments of Success” seminar with former student and successful actor, Peter Dobson.
Lynette McNeill Studio regularly hosts “Defining Moments of Success” as a way for their students to gain vital industry knowledge from seasoned professionals. Actor, producer and writer, Peter Dobson (Forest Gump, The Defenders, Big Love) himself a former student of Lynette McNeill Studio was welcomed back to his former acting class with a warm and boisterous applause. As a steadily working actor for over twenty years, he took the stage to impart hard-won experience on the craft of acting, how performing on stage differs from acting on the set of a major motion picture, and the unique challenges the entertainment industry presents. Further expanding his point, Mr. Dobson discussed successful strategies to deliver memorable auditions and land that all-important break out role. He went on to stress that successful actors are always learning and expanding their range with each role they play. A question and answer period followed, where Lynette’s students were free to ply Mr. Dobson for more information and extract amusing anecdotes about show business. All in all, it was a successful evening with positive student feedback thanking Mr. Dobson for his time and for sharing his knowledge and experience. The event inspired students to work even more diligently and gave them the conviction that they, too, can succeed as actors in an often daunting and cut-throat industry.
Indeed, many of Lynette’s former students have found just that success, including: Adam Sandler, Jason Lee, Ellen DeGeneres, Giovanni Ribisi, Faith Ford, and Jane Leeves. In the case of her current students, a majority are actively working and recently booked CSI: Miami, Law & Order: LA, Castle, The Gates, Cold Case, Sons of Anarchy, and more.
In the words of Lynette McNeill, “At the studio, the actors are inspired by what they’re learning and creating week after week. There’s always a new wave of energy pushing us toward the future. We’re always striving to do better and better work, turning dreams into reality.”
