This series is designed to provide intensive four-hour training sessions for Stage & Screen Combat. The subject matter will vary from month to month. Sometimes we will train in the use of specific weapons. Other times the sessions will cover acting-based topics as they specifically relate to violence on stage or screen.
A minimum number of participants is required to make certain the seminar happens so make sure to sign up early. You must register by the end of the preceding month for the discounted price.
WHERE: Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), NYC unless otherwise noted.
COST: Typically $75 (late registration $100) but special seminars will have varying cost.
Take a hands-on tactical training course specifically designed for actors, stunt performers, and writers taught by veteran Law Enforcement trainer, Kevin McMahon. Kevin has spent over 20 years training Bergen County Sheriff’s Officers and will give you the fundamental skills and confidence to accurately and realistically portray a character who is required to handle a firearm.
There will be a Level 1 and 2 offered this day along with a special session for returning participants that will be focusing on filming a fight.
Stage & Screen Fighting: Basic or Advanced
This seminar will be the perfect introduction for Fighting for Film or Stage as well as an opportunity for past students to work on Advanced Choreography for a live performance and for film.
Basic: This introduction will cover the fundamental unarmed techniques you will most commonly be called on to perform including punches, slaps, hair pulls, chokes, falls and kicks.
Advanced: If you have trained with me in the past then enroll for the Advanced Choreo session instead. You will be given an advanced sequence of choreography to work up to speed. In the first half you will be expected to perform it at speed for stage and in the second half you will work the common camera angles with minimal rehearsal time to reset for each angle. Please be ready for a high paced experience with high expectations!
This session sold out last time so register asap.
