This Film Fighting course provides practical experience working in front of the camera for Action Films/TV. Film sets can be both exciting and intimidating because you are expected to deliver quickly in a high pressure environment. Stunt professionals must be proficient in every aspect of physical action and know how to “sell it” for the camera.

This session will focus on unarmed fighting and will culminate in shooting a short film fight on location that can be used for your reel.
Topics that will be covered include:

    • Camera awareness
    • Angles to shoot from
    • “Set-iquette”
    • Unarmed combat: punches, kicks, falls, chokes, restraints and basic stunts
    • Performing under pressure
    • Hitting marks
    • Keeping yourself safe
