“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.
I didn't think I was gonna be myself in the workshop but being in the environment with Kamil and friendly classmates did ease my nerves.
I personally benefitted from the life skills that were being discussed and taught.
I love Kamil’s dedication to the students and individual attention he gives to everyone.
The workshop moved at a very nice pace. It is very interesting to know that so much self-awareness goes into acting preparation. There was no judgement in the room which was very nice!
I recommend the Scene Study workshop to people who have an interest in exploring characters. Scene study is structured such that it allows students to create instinctual performances and also a platform for feedback
I find it useful to introduce the reading of sonnets for the Shakespeare workshop and Krissy is great!
The pair scenes allows both my partner and I to improve skills that actors need. We learnt that camera angles play a huge part in on-screen acting.
I recommend Dr Jane for her good content and solid pedagogy which can be applicable to different situations.
The vowels and breathing exercises that Dr Jane engaged with us are very useful. I like that she is firm but understanding towards our needs.
