Episode 27: Staging a Fight Scene

Fight scenes are as tightly choreographed as any dance number – and much more likely to break a jaw if an actor isn’t paying attention.

Join hosts Norman Hollyn and Larry Jordan as they disect a fight scene with the help of the “2 Reel Players.” Discover what makes a fight work, how to place cameras to shoot a fight and how editing can enhance the actor’s performances. The goal of any fight scene is to enthrall the audience without anyone on the cast getting hurt. This session shows how to start.

(This was one of Larry’s favorite episodes. See if you can spot when and how the fight director disagrees with the director.)

“Staging a Fight Scene” – this week, on the 2 Reel Guys.
