Ivana Chubbuck Clip From Stanislavski, Lust For Life documentary filmed and produced in Russia.

I am honored to have been asked to speak about Stanislavski in a Russian documentary about him. Most everyone else in this documentary are Russian stars, directors, and teachers, and I am proud to be a part of such an esteemed group of Russian artists. I am moved by the film and the man who inspired and created such a strong foundation for the world of actors, writers, and directors. I was filmed in a historic theater in Moscow. Here is a clip from the documentary.

Overall and scene Objectives are meant to “solve” something. Always see the characters pain as a pathway to emotional, spiritual and/or actual prosperity. It’s our duty as artists to empower your characters so you can empower your audience... and yourself, too.

Deryl Carroll has officially retired from ICS, but our friendship will last our lifetimes. With great joy I gave him a Cartier watch to commemorate our over a quarter of a century together! And as I said in the long and very sentimental letter that I wrote to him - I ended with this, "It is with great pleasure I give to you a gift that keeps time, but is timeless as is our friendship and connection."
Love always and forever, Ivana

I had a question and answer session with the much famed and lauded Chinese director, director Wu. A director renowned for his artistry and extraordinary visions. He asked me a very wise question, that I’d like to share my answer to all of you! He asked me, “do you think that your technique will stand the test of time, say 100 years from now. When the needs of film may have changed drastically.” To which I answered:
