Film Combat Weekend Course

Course Description

The Film Combat Course will take the students through the discipline of preparing for a fight to be preformed on film. Students will preform a choreographed fight sequence with dialogue. The group meets on a Tuesday 12 days before the intensive weekend where they will be assigned a partner and be given the choreography. They will also be given a lesson to understand how the featured weapon works by being shown specific movement. From there, the teams will have the next 12 days to choose a scene, memorize their lines. They will also be asked to get together and start to memorize the choreography.

We meet again on a Saturday, from 2:00pm-8:00pm and an intensive training session will take place. This session will be grueling and long. The idea is to get the student to the place they need to be, both physically and mentally to perform their fights.

The next day, Sunday, we film the fights, covering them for edit. Each team receives the raw footage. Each team will have a time slot and a minimal amount of time to complete the shots.

The Goal of the Course

To not only give you footage for your reel, but more importantly to have the student understand how to create good fight choreography when the need arises, both in a filming situation as well as the audition process. Fight coordinators and stunt people that choreograph fight sequences, especially with weapons, are not always the best. My goal is to have you armed with knowledge and skills to back it up, to override unsafe, weak and disappointing fight choreography.


Cost of the class is $290. A 50% non-refundable deposit must made prior to the Tuesday session. This is a first come first serve situation as all sessions are a limited number of participants. You may choose to pay here through the payment link, or come by the studio at 416 south Victory Blvd. Burbank CA 91502 with your deposit. Times on the shooting day will be strictly enforced.

It is strongly suggested, but not necessary, that you have a friend enroll with you.
