Great course as a base and to learn about or get a glimpse on what "acting" is really about. Very good style of conducting and it is helpful that many different characters came together in the end and "acting" is the result of a complex situations of various inputs and this is something not everyone be aware of. For me I would loved to have more insight into all techniques, to get an idea on what exists in the "market". The voice exercise was helpful.
I was reminded to be open to adapting to situations, to be genuine to people in my action and intentions and to be present.
The workshop allowed me to explore what kind of a learner I personally am. The vibe in the classroom is very relaxing and comfortable in a way where you are accepted to be yourself. The coach was a great, a hilarious and relatable guy.
"We are always in search for programmes that would bring exceptional value to the growth of our employees. Having attended different improv programmes, the one strong value that makes HCAC stand out is the way they balance a participant’s discomfort and the openness to experiment, ultimately helping them breakthrough their personal boundaries.”
“The participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves and felt pushed and inspired. One of my main objectives this year was to focus on supporting women to up-skill themselves. From the feedback, many are hooked onto the messages and learnings shared.”
“This is not your usual run-of-the-mill skills upgrading workshop … but a really unique experience of self-discovery through a series of unexpected exercises and insightful comments – and then the true sculpting of the individual begins.”
“The Authentic Acting and Communication Workshop by Kamil Haque was a welcome shift from the typical sales training workshop. Through the HCAC trainers’ expertise, my team and I learnt some valuable customer management, leadership and selling skills through a full day of highly interactive activities, role play and acting techniques that help to centre our busy lives and find mindfulness – key skills for the modern individual. The best part is many of the skills the trainers imparted are also useful beyond the work setting!”
“Kamil played a pivotal role in helping me re-connect with my beliefs and re-build my confidence during a crucial time before an important pitch to 200 investors.”
“This is our first training class which we engaged actors to role-play as people in emotional distress. The actors from HCAC did a wonderful job by allowing our trainees experience close-to-real situations. Our trainees appreciated this realistic interaction as they were able to apply and practice the skills that they have learnt. The actors were professional and dedicated in their respective roles. It was obvious they had put in effort and a lot of research to ensure they portray their role as realistic as possible.”
I could tell people really opened up more over time, as they progressed. Not only did I learn a lot about acting, self-awareness, and self-expression, I even learned some techniques that I can use to help others "act" more authentically in life.
The focus on the surrounding skills necessary to be an actor rather than just acting itself.
