Fighting for Film

Fighting for the Camera, whilst sharing many of the Techniques used in Stage Combat, requires a Different Approach from the Performers. We have developed an Extensive Range of Classes based around Fighting for Film, from Refreshers to Full Training Sessions, and Continue to work towards this discipline being Recognised and Certified by Equity and the Stage Fighting Organisations across the Country.  For the Camera, Energy, Movement and  often take precendence over Individual Moves, but Technique is still the Foundation for Great Performance

Stage Combat

From the Greek Classics through Shakespeare all the way to Contemporary writing, Conflict is at the Heart of Drama. We Provide Training for Professionals and Students alike in the Physical Performance of Dramatic Conflict, or teach them how Not to Hit Each Other whilst Making it Look as if they are. Courses and Workshops are all based on the Needs of the Students and Performers
