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.
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.
Reaction Upon Finishing:
I'm sure going to have to read that again! Not that I didn't pay attention, I did! But, there is just SO much information!
Don't get me wrong, this book taught me so much, but it was actually pretty hard to get through at times. Maybe it was the small font that scared me, but I constantly put down the book.
Even though it was hard to get through sometimes, I learned so much! Chubbuck has a 12 step technique that is on point!
The book is divided into two parts, the first step is the 12 step technique, each chapter being a different step. The first section takes up most of the book.
The second part is miscellaneous; how to be drunk, a script with all the steps applied, etc.
I'm probably going to re read it before every major audition and before every job.
