Ingrid Hart Performance Coaching is for actors* who are ready to go deeper in their acting abilities and take themselves to the next level of achievement. It's performance coaching for actors. For life.
Using a technique mastered by Hollywood greats including Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Terrence Howard, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Bosworth, Sylvester Stallone and Jim Carey, The Chubbuck Technique teaches actors how to leverage their own psychology and behaviour in order to parallel the emotional journey of the character they're playing. In this way, the actor is able to infuse the character with a stronger determination to overcome the obstacles of the story and 'win' the scene. This technique provides effective tools that turn good performances into dynamic award-winning ones.
The Chubbuck Technique helps the actor to discover more layers of the character and personalize the story; adding richness, dimension and profound truth to each scene. This gives the character a stronger drive to 'win' their objective while also providing valuable insight to the actor as it pertains to their own personal goals and life challenges.
Applying this technique to any performance will ultimately lead to memorable auditions and compelling scene work while providing the actor with a higher level of personal and professional growth.

*To all directors, writers and producers: Understanding The Chubbuck Technique is helpful for you too because it provides fundamentaltools for effective communication with your talent.
Dynamic performances inspire audiences. Do you know someone who constantly walks around in the starring role of 'Poor Me'? Feeling like a victim is dis-empowering and actually steals life-force energy from other people. Equally, playing the role of 'The-Hero-Who-Doesn't-Need-Anyone' is the best way to dis-connect yourself from the audience as well as the rest of the cast. Acting in this manner is a great disservice because you're offering absolutely nothing to your peers as well, it's extremely boring to watch.
Whether the character you're playing is 'good', 'bad', 'weak' or 'strong', we all have vulnerabilities that drive our need to experience a better tomorrow.
Win the scenes of your script. Whether it's on-screen, on stage or in real life, all dynamic performances come from taking great risks in order to fulfill big dreams. This is the winning formula that sells tickets, boosts ratings and gives the audience the hope that they came for.
