Southwest Scene Works Mission

At Southwest Scene Works we are committed to keeping consistent innovative acting training in the state of New Mexico.

Basic Intensive

All the Chubbuck Intensives are scene study and script analysis. In the Basic Intensives tools (1-12) and terminology are introduced and more fully explained and defined. Think of the Basic Intensives as preparation to be in the Master class. Also, we focus on strengthening your "type" in this class.

Because the Chubbuck Technique is a large technique, the Basic Intensive is split in 2 parts. There's a Basic 1 in which you learn tools 1-4 and a Basic 2 in which you learn tools 5-12. I suggest students take two consecutive months of Basic in order to get a firm grasp on the tools. By the time you finish your time in the Basic Chubbuck Intensives you should be understand how to use all the tools effectively.

The Basic Intensive is appropriate for ALL LEVELS! For more advanced actors, Basic refers to your knowledge of the 12 tools and in no way represents your talent or experience. All actors are required to go through the Basic Intensives (tools 1-12) before they are invited to join the Master Intensive.

"I set myself challenges every time I work. Ideally, I approach everything as though it's the first time - with a beginner's mind and an amateur's love." - Willem Dafoe
 

Class size is 12 students. This ensures an intimate focused environment. You will work every class.

Before you attend the Basic Intensive read “The Power of the Actor”, focusing on the first 12 chapters. It is a comprehensive map on how to break down a script. This will allow you to make faster progress upon entering the class because you will have a more concrete and thorough understanding of how to apply the Chubbuck Acting Technique.

You may audit all the other classes at no additional cost. Come as often as you want, you do not have to call to make an appointment. In classes you are auditing, even if you only have a short time to spend, still come. It is very helpful to see critiques of other scenes from other classes. Inundate yourself with the information. It will help you grow.

Once you've completed Basic Intensive (pt.1) and Basic Intensive (pt. 2) you are invited to join the Master Intensive.

Master Intensive

"We, the actors, are the storytellers of our time. So like the monks and nuns who dedicate themselves to the service of God, actors must dedicate themselves to the service of the universal. This is no easy task."  -Faye Simpson

What is the difference between the Basic Chubbuck Intensive and the Master Chubbuck? Well, here are a few of the things that separate the classes...

Continued Access to Industry Professionals. We will have an industry guest (casting directors, directors, agents, writers) the last class of the Intensive to showcase your talent and hard work. I'm also reaching out to various writers/directors to workshop material with you. This gives you continued exposure in the local film industry and helps to build and maintain connections. One of my goals for the Master students is to create connection and community for them.

As incentive to continue with consistent monthly training in your craft, I'm offering you a $125+tax/Intensive rate instead of the original $150+tax/Intensive rate. This is a discount of $25. It is a reward for your dedication to your craft, and an incentive for you to stay consistent and focused in your training.

Master Scene Work. In our Advanced Chubbuck Class we stretched ourselves, experimenting with playing against "type." In our Master Intensive you will be given more control as an artist. We will work together as student and teacher to focus attention on areas that you feel you need the most work and strengthening. We will continue to work together to push your craft to the next level in ALL areas. At this point we're all savvy to the 12 tools. So, there will no longer be a review during class time. All energy will be focused on scene work and play within the scene. I will also be sharing casting and industry information that I will be collecting while living in Los Angeles. This is a privilege given only to Master students who are currently enrolled in classes. To ensure quality time with each actor, I only allowing 12 students in this Intensive.

*Requirements: The actor must have completed 2 months in the Basic Chubbuck Intensive. They will then be extended an invite to join the Master Chubbuck Class.

FAQ the Chubbuck Acting Technique...

What is your technique and how does it work?- I teach the Chubbuck Technique, which builds on teaching traditions that stretch back to Stanislavski and infuses them with current advances in behavioral science and psychology. The 12 tools that you will use in the Chubbuck Acting Technique are powerful, effective, and accessible. They simply work.
