This is a rare opportunity to work with Kyle during his brief tour of the U.S.

Films are very expensive, time is money, and directors hate having to tell anyone, especially extra or stand-ins, the same thing twice. Just to give you a little insight into the cost of Hollywood; ‘Star Wars Episode III’ cost $30,000USD per minute to make. That’s right, per minute. How many times do you think George Lucas wants to ask you to stay in shot before he finds someone that can.

Through three simple steps, Kyle Rowling’s unique film fighting process will help you understand how the camera sees the world, and what you can do to make sure it sees the best of you every time. Sword fights are easier to capture on film because there is generally more movement, they are larger and more epic, for that reason this New York workshop will focus on getting the most out of your Unarmed skills on camera.

Over the course of this workshop you will learn Kyle’s unique set of techniques including:
– Striking and blocking techniques
– Grappling
– Camera awareness
– Set-tiquette &
