Testimonials

“I just recently got off set from shooting “Hell on Wheels.” The camera was right up in my face in ECU shots and I want to thank you Coach for preparing me to handle those moments. Coach Banks helped me with the audition all the way through the booking and after that it was in God’s hands — along with everything I learned at CBSI. Thanks Again!”

“Using the skills I’ve learned while studying at CBSI has given me the ability to work on camera. I’ve landed agents, casting directors and ultimately, now work as an actor! I’m actually in Canada as we speak shooting a recurring role on an AMC show! Coach Banks coached me straight from the audition, to shooting on-set! Thanks Coach!”

Linda Michaels

“Coming into CBSI with no acting experience or training, I’ve been able to secure representation, book movie roles and I even landed the lead in a play — in just a short amount of time! But more importantly, through CBSI, I’ve gained an invaluable confidence and perspective that’s ignited the fire to live the life of a true artist!”

“Thank you so much Coach! I really got so much out of today’s class it was insane! Today’s talk was also very life empowering! I now walked around with my eyes “open”, if you know what I mean. Although I try to do that all the time now… but today was different. The sensory work was amazing! Somebody gave me an orange as a gift today. I smelled the orange for 15 minutes! It was very interesting and different then before! I was having a very full experience to say the least! It brought up all sorts of emotions. I’m so much more alive! Cheer!”

“I really liked the zoom class more than I thought I would. To be honest I’ve been on Zoom calls before for business and I didn’t think the creative aspect could be achieved in this online forum. But I can and did! I felt connected, on purpose, and I learned.”

“My Zoom experience was good! The amount of people in the online class made the session feel more like (one on one) training. Also being able to hear the words and just focus on listening and responding. The levels were easier for me to work on and create in. I didn’t mind the online dynamic at all!”

“Working at such an intense level in the craft is exhilarating. Working via Zoom felt challenging at first, but soon it really heightened the intimate level of the work! I thought the approach to class was perfect for the medium. It was intimate, well-paced, organized and effective. Looking forward to more!”
