COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — From the court to the movies, and now to the classroom; former Buckeye basketball and track standout Otis Winston has moved from the world of sports to making an impact in the arts.
He's trying to help others achieve their dreams. Winston has created a little slice of Hollywood right here in Central Ohio.
Winston is not just focused on putting local talent on the big screen, he's pushing to change lives for the better.
A small Columbus studio is where Otis Winston is trying to help aspiring actors who have some pretty big dreams.
The former OSU athlete has been in 21 movies, along with a number of television credits.
Opportunities didn't come easy for Winston; before starting his Buckeye career or his acting one, he had to face numerous challenges.
Winston hosts bi-weekly acting classes, sharing the secrets and tips he's learned along the way. What really makes these classes so special is they actually serve as a therapy session of sorts, helping people to also work through issues they may be going through.
For Winston, acting is not only fun, it's also therapeutic.
Winston told ABC 6 that his classes are more than about just acting. He describes it as "a vibe," getting people out of their own way to reach for their dreams, have a bit of fun and release the stress of life.
