CBSI is focused on the relatively driven, extremely focused, and highly imaginative actor. All of the work takes place in a safe and supportive environment prone to facilitate advanced creative and artistic studies. CBSI uses a Meisner/Method based holistic approach (on-camera) that strives for excellence in the craft of film and TV acting. Because Coach Banks spent ten years as a Fortune 500 Coach, CBSI supplements each actor's creative work with life empowerment skills and applicable business principles. Along with Emmy nominees and winners, CBSI's student body is comprised of working actors, artists, writers, dancers, singers, directors, and producers, with hundreds of alumni worldwide. Coach Banks is also a recurring guest coach for SAG/AFTRA as well as a Backstage Field Expert.
