Programme Details

Action. Reaction. Camera!

This workshop is for actors, filmmakers, online content creators or anyone who just wants to get physical and have fun doing it. In this workshop, you will learn how to fight for the medium of TV and film. The instructor will impart the fundamentals of Film Combat as well as how to create a fight sequence using non-contact fight techniques. By the end of the semester, you’ll be working towards creating and shooting a fight scene of your own.

The workshop has a hands-on component. Participants must be comfortable with physical contact. Participants will also be working in pairs and therefore are highly encouraged to sign up with people that they’re comfortable with. Participants will be required to use their handphones or iPads for the course to shoot and edit the final fight sequence of the workshop. Participants should have access to a basic movie maker app on their phone or something similar.
