Film: Fight Choreography/Filmography Study

It’s not often you get to work on a passion project, nor is it often that you have to fire one of your best friends from a project.

In the Fall of 2012 in graduate school, I did an independent study on fight choreography for film.

As the producer, I had to learn and manage a variety of tasks:

  • Creating the story and designing the fight choreography.
  • Coordinating actor schedules for practices and rehearsals.
  • Practicing and performing choreography.
  • Working with the camera woman to identify ideal shot angles to showcase the choreography.
  • Acquiring equipment and props.
  • Scheduling shoot time and location.
  • Editing footage.

A thorough list of my learnings from this project can be found at my end of semester post.
