After the success of the recent online launch of Star Magic Workshops, the talent agency reopens its Artist Registry to welcome more talents from its public workshops. Now, students will have more access to auditions and will have a chance to be a talent for ABS-CBN’s TV series.
When the pandemic shut down all countries, their borders, and economies last year, Rahyan Carlos, head of the Star Magic Artist Training and Workshops did not waste time in studying and finding ways to transpose all workshops and training for the actors.
“Last April 2020 after a month-long of intensive studying, auditing classes abroad, and transposing modules online with my teachers, we resumed the training for acting, dance, voice, and conversational Tagalog via zoom. And it worked!” said Carlos.
Even if after the network’s shutdown happened last year, this did not dampen the spirit of Carlos to stop training actors. In fact, he and his teachers held all workshops online via zoom.
In June 2020, Star Magic had a soft launch of all workshops online.
“We had 250 students all over the world during the pandemic from 22 participating countries such as England, London, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Florence Italy, Virginia, New York, L.A., Guam, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, France, New Jersey, Dubai, Qatar, and Canada. We had live and recorded online recitals and culminating activities of all our workshops and people were so entertained and cheered for their loved ones who participated in the online training,” said Carlos.
Carlos is the only certified Chubbuck Technique acting teacher behind the training of some of the most sought-after and award-winning actors of today such as Christian Bables, Coco Martin, Julia Barretto, Jake Cuenca, Liza Diño-Seguerra, Anna Luna, EJ Falcon, Alora Sasam, Ynna Asistio, Roco Nacino, Sandino Martin, Arjo Atayde, Paulo Avelino, Joshua Garcia, and Charlie Dizon, the recent Best Actress of MMFF 2020 for Fan Girl, among others.
Last October 2020, Star Magic Workshops also launched its first online workshop for participants in Canada in partnership with A.M.P. (Artist Movement Production), a group of Filipinos who provide education and training services in various aspects of the performing arts.
The workshop was done in Canada EST time and the vernacular used was English since some of the Filipino participants were born and raised in Canada.
Canada has the largest Filipino ethnic community and market for the performing arts. Forty participants graduated from the soft launch of the intensive workshop last year and it was a success.
This year-end, in partnership with Annabelle Regalado of E-Talent Musikademy, Star Magic will open its workshops in Australia. It will also do the first hybrid workshops in Canada under A.M.P. where 80 percent of training will be online and 20 percent will be face-to-face workshops as we will bring the rehearsal and recital physically to Toronto, Canada.
