Ivana Chubbuck is the founder and director of the Ivana Chubbuck Studio and creator of the cutting edge and widely adopted Chubbuck Technique. Ivana maintains a focus on producing and nurturing working actors in a rigorous professional environment. It is her mission to empower actors with the tools to become successful and to make dynamic, empwered choices in their work.

Some of the actors Ivana has worked with during her 30-plus year career include Academy Award winners and nominees: Halle Berry, James Franco, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Kate Hudson, Terence Howard, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jon Voight, Djimon Honsou, Elisabeth Shue,  Catherine Keener, Jared Leto

The Chubbuck Technique is a 12-step system based on psychology and behavioral science. It guides an actor to the heart of a character by discovering the character’s primal needs – love, validation and power – and by doing anything and everything to win their objective.

Her technique, as illuminated in her book, has been taught in Denmark, Chile, Romania, Italy, The Netherlands, UK and Canada.
