Testimonials and Success Stories
We aim to inspire, educate and empower artists through sharing their unique stories to impact people from around the world.
While HI does not promise or guarantee success in the US market or elsewhere many of our participants have gone on to achieve great results in the business. We consistently see many of our artists signed for representation either in the US or their home countries. Our artists have booked more work, created more content and released more music with their new found understanding of what is necessary to elevate their careers.

“Straight after the Immersive finished I auditioned for a lead role on a new Netflix series and landed the part. I totally put my success down to the training I did during that 8 day period on HI. Since then the show has had massive success winning two Emmys at the Daytime Emmy Award in 2018”

“I chose to go to another country to pursue my music and make things happen with Hollywood Immersive. It was a big decision, but it turned out to be well and truly worth it. The Hollywood Immersive program is a great introduction to the music industry.”

Hollywood Immersive was a fantastic program that gave me the confidence and knowledge that I can now apply to my acting career. I would never have had the opportunities and experiences that I have had if it were not for this program. It really helped me to get my foot in the door in the industry and gave me the confidence and kick start I needed to really get my career going. Through HI, I was able to get signed with Untitled Entertainment in Los Angeles, upon returning to Australia I landed a lead role in the Nowhere Boys TV Series which has since won an International Emmy award and two Logie awards, and I've completed my first US feature film Eden. I am now currently a regular on Neighbours and can truly call myself a working actor.
Lilly continues to support me even after the program has finished.
Eva Mendes - Mentor
“It is a dream of mine to be able to offer this kind of invaluable education to young actors from all walks of life, not just the ones who can afford to come to the US to study. That’s why I have decided to set up the Eva Mendes Scholarship in association with Hollywood Immersive – offering an invaluable opportunity and experience to a young person who dreams of being an actor, but who wouldn’t otherwise have the exposure or opportunity to do so”
Host of World Poker Tour - Fox Sports
“I learned so much about the craft, the industry and about myself. I surprised myself every day thanks to the supportive guidance of Lilly and the teachers at Beverly Hills Playhouse, as well as the intimate sessions at the house with speakers sharing priceless insight into their perspective of the entertainment industry."

“Lilly and the team have opened doors for me that I would never even imagine could have appeared. Hollywood Immersive is so much more than a week’s acting course, it is a tool and the beginning of a whole new era. I have managed to gain not just knowledge, inspiration and even more passion for this industry but incredible connections that are stepping me to the next level. I have been offered meetings with agents, managers, even producers and other creatives and as a result I have signed with brilliant management and an agent”

"Hollywood immersive challenged me and gave me an opportunity to hone in on and really work on my craft as an actor. Thanks to my time spent on the Program I discovered extra potential in my skills and range as an actor, which I would have not likely been able to do otherwise. If anyone were to ask me if my time spent on the course was worth it I would tell them without a doubt that it definitely was. Through Hollywood Immersive I learnt things that I truly would have not learnt anywhere else and made life long friends."
