Ivana Chubbuck

It is our mission to
empower our students with the tools to become successful and to make dynamic, empowered choices in their work.


Ivana Chubbuck is definitely an icon in Hollywood. During her 35-plus year career, Ivana has coached a long list of A-list actors: Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Travis Fimmel, Sylvester Stallone, Jared Leto, Halle Berry, James Franco and Jake Gyllenhaal – just to name a few.

Being coached by her Certified Teacher Elsena Shehaj is truly a unique opportunity to help you grow on a professional and personal level.

The Chubbuck Technique is a 12-step system based on psychology and behavioral science. It guides an actor to the heart of the character by discovering the character’s primal needs – love, validation and power – and by doing anything and everything to win their objective.
The essence of the Chubbuck Technique is not to use emotional pain as an end in itself, but rather to “use emotional pain , fears, insecurities as a fuel to overcome your obstacles and WIN your character goal”. This thought process can be useful both for success in script analysis, and in your personal life.
