There is fighting... and then there is fighting for film! A session on non-verbal dialogue. Part 2 of Lawrence’s talk with Fight Choreographer John Kreng. In part 1 they covered the history of fighting on film, now they discuss the meat and potatoes of it all including how on-screen action serves the story and characters of a the film, assessing the skill sets of an actor, the relationship between the Stunt Coordinator and the director, and when to involve the DP (hint: always). They also cover film school vs. real life, the value of Stunt Coordinators and 2nd Unit Directors being involved in the edit, the value of pre-vis, and why all departments have to be in sync. The bottom line to all of this being audience emotional satisfaction vs. box office success (they need not be mutually exclusive), and why the action must support the story and the story must support the action.
