Two years after she first came to the country, Ivana Chubbuck, best- selling author of The Power of the Actor returned for her second master teaching acting class with selected Star Magic artists participating.
She conducted the two-day workshop for actors of Star Magic and ABSCBN on Sept. 3 and 4 at the Dolphy Theater.
She is best known as the acting coach of Academy Award winners and nominees Halle Berry, Jared Leto,Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey, Charlize Theron, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Eva Mendez and David Ayer, who happens to be the director of the recent blockbuster, hit Suicide Squad.
The master class had Star Magic artists Jake Cuenca, Jason Abalos, Jason Gainza, Coleen Garcia, Alora Sasam, JV Kapunan, Raphael Robes, Paulo Avelino and even new Kapamilyas Mica Javier and Ritz Azul attending.
The masterclass had actors staging scenes from Hollywood films, which were critiqued in the same way that Ivana does with Hollywood stars. Similar to the masterclass two years ago, it was open to observers to witness the two-day event in order to cull tips from the Hollywood acting trainer. It may be recalled that Star Magic Artist Training Head Rahyan Carlos first invited Ivana to the country two years ago. During that same time, he underwent an intensive teacher’s training program under her, which allowed him to become proficient in the different levels of acting classes from Introductory to Master class. Upon conclusion of his training, Rahyan earned the title of being the only Filipino authorized to teach the ‘Chubbuck Technique’ in the Philippines.
