THE POWER OF THE ACTOR
In The Power of the Actor, a Los Angeles Times bestseller, premier acting teacher and coach Ivana Chubbuck reveals her cutting-edge technique, which has launched some of the most successful acting careers in Hollywood.The first book from the instructor who has taught Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Elisabeth Shue, Djimon Hounsou, and Halle Berry, The Power of the Actor guides you to dynamic and effective results. For many of today's major talents, the Chubbuck Technique is the leading edge of acting for the twenty-first century. Ivana Chubbuck has developed a curriculum that takes the theories of the acting masters, such as Stanislavski, Meisner, and Hagen, to the next step by utilizing inner pain and emotions, not as an end in itself, but rather as a way to drive and win a goal.In addition to the powerful twelve-step process, the book takes well-known scripts, both classic and contemporary, and demonstrates how to precisely apply Chubbuck's script-analysis process. The Power of the Actor is filled with fascinating and inspiring behind-the-scenes accounts of how noted actors have mastered their craft and have accomplished success in such a difficult and competitive field.

In this technique you won't be hiding behind a character, you'll learn how to become the character-first by finding the psyche of that character and then by determining how that particular psychology of the character parallels to your own.
You'll actually be yourself. This makes a strong impact on your audience because they now can relate to you and what you're going through. This makes the character more humanized and lifts it more effectively off the script page. That's why, with this technique, you'll never be expected to become an animal or a tree with sap running down it. Bottom line, it's not human. You won't have to do anything esoteric like "finding your center." No crying exercises or drinking coffee that doesn't exist. For all intents and purposes this technique is based in the science of behavior and psychology, making it easier to learn because it is logical. In other words, what people really do, not what actors think they do.
