MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: EVENINGS – next series starting AUGUST 2016
The Fight Focus sessions are a comprehensive training series that give you the foundations of fighting with specific weapons and styles for stage, screen and performance capture (motion capture).
This 6-week course is designed to focus in on the technical aspects of using these systems in a dramatic context, and from this grounding then exploring performance in different media.
By focusing on one weapon for the series, we will have the opportunity to get a solid understanding of the techniques we can use to keep these fights safe, look effective, and look like our character knows what they’re doing! These foundations you can then apply to different styles, genres, eras and characters; and to further specialisation in these areas if this is of interest.
So we will be honing in on form, technique, conditioning, integration of movement, awareness, control, relaxation…
And of course playing with acting choices and story-telling that is essential to bringing the performance element of a dramatic scene to life.
That is – we are going to have a huge amount of FUN.
There will be historical context threading through the course, however please note this this is a Dramatic Combat course and not a Historical Martial Arts course – for that do chase down the many great local HEMA groups!
Evenings, weekly! Details coming… Starting in August
The course will cater to all levels of experience. We also cater to all levels of physical fitness and abilities – although of course the more in-shape you are, the more you can get out of each week. You will also benefit greatly from training and rehearsal in between classes. If you have any questions or are unsure, just get in touch.
