Acting is just not my cup of tea but I've tried my best although I sounded like a comedian playing the part of Basha at the short Chubbuck Acting Workshop of Director-writer-acting coach, Rahyan Carlos at ABS-CBN yesterday. Back from attending an intensive teachers' training program in the US under Ivana Chubbuck, author of the book, "The Power of the Actor" and personal acting coach of Academy award winners and nominees such as Halle Berry, Jim Carrey, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt and more Hollywood biggies, Director Rahyan Carlos shared to the bloggers how the discipline of Hollywood celebrities compare to that of the Filipino actors/actresses.
After attending different levels of Acting classes from Introductory to Master classes, Director Rahyan Carlos was awarded a certificate making him THE ONLY FILIPINO representative authorized to teach the CHUBBUCK ACTING TECHNIQUE in the Philippines.He shared to us stories about the Star Magic talents' discipline and how parents play a significant role in making and breaking a talent. Recognizing that training makes a prepared actor given more opportunities, the chances of making it to stardom is still a "hit or miss". He also mentioned that the breed of character actors are slowly diminishing these days. He had always reminded in Star Magic Summer Workshops how important it is to be always prepared and training does more than preparing actors but developing personalities to better serve the opportunities in showbiz and other endeavors. The bloggers had a chance to be critiqued by no other than Director Carlos.
I needed to participate to experience being taught how to act because I am also teaching (although not acting classes). Delivering the lines was not easy because it was hard for me to feel the "karga" (emotions) with FPJ (www.manualtolyf.com). It was a rare opportunity and at least I wasn't able to miss being coached by the well-known director from Star Magic. Star Magic Workshop Director Rahyan Carlos will introduce the technique to the public for both amateurs and professionals for the first time in the 2013 Star Magic Summer Workshops. We were told that even the well-known celebrities of Star Magic will have to learn the Chubbuck Acting Technique so would you pass the chance to be with them this summer? Three categories will be open at the Star Magic Acting Studio: the Introductory Class which will prepare aspiring actors from scratch and will lay out fundamentals in acting, the Advanced Class which will prepare for a higher level of acting focusing on applying techniques and script analysis on scene studies and the Master Class which is all about excelling in different genres and mastery of technique. They will also be offering dance and voice workshops so don't miss the registration on MARCH 16 and 17, 2013. Limited slots only as too many are so excited about this opportunity.
