ACCESSING YOUR INNER SUPERHUMAN!

CBSI is a reputable, well-established studio that has produced two Emmy Award-Winners, coached by Master Coach Clay Banks. Unlike many other studios, we do not focus on only one aspect of the Craft of Acting, we go from audition technique to ready to shoot scenes and character work and tape your audition. Our studio is a zone-empowered center for advanced artistic & creative studies. We implement a split-screen, ECU, on-camera Meisner/Method based process with optional recorded playbacks for further study. All working-actors work every class!
