Our Introduction to Film Fighting course is excellent for film actors and individuals interested in learning techniques used by industry professionals. The course covers the theory and practical application of the basics of fight choreography, brawling, falls, basic and improvised weapons, and squib work with a concentration on safety and acting in the moment – all invaluable for actors looking to expand their skill sets and setting a foundation for more advanced stunt training. All students will learn choreographed fights using techniques used in class, including barroom brawls, and an introduction to weapons, with a footage of a final choreographed fight for their reels.
