Character-Based Improvisation

with Robert Marchand
The CBI Process

My own passion for CBI is this: it’s empowering. This is a process that actively stimulates creativity – whatever state your project is in, this process fuels your imagination. It’s full of useful tools for filmmakers and actors. Oh, it’s also a great way to create a whole film from scratch too!

Robert Marchand

My own passion for this process is because it reconnects director and actor with their pure creative impulses in an environment where discovery, experimentation, and risk-taking can be safely investigated. Both directors and actors are often reminded that the business aspects of filmmaking dictate how a film is made.
