Combat for Camera - Swordplay/Stage Combat Workshop
22nd and 23rd Feb 2014
Lyall Bay, Wellington
The CFC Swordplay/Stage Combat course is an intensive 2-Day workshop. This course is designed to improve your skills as actors and swordplay enthusiasts by giving you more tools to use. Being multi-skilled is a must-have in this industry and puts you ahead of the competition. We will be passing information on to you that is normally only given once you secure a role. You will be a step ahead for your auditions and on set and be able to perform with complete confidence. The course covers all of the fundamental basics of swordplay and stage combat skills used specifically in the Film and Television industry. The goal is to not only provide professional and informative instruction but to give every student a solid foundation in which to build on.
Every student is also given a free CFC tshirt and training sword as part of the workshop.
Personal Note from Allan Smith - Head Instructor.
Hey everyone, I would love to see you at this workshop. My name is Allan Smith and I was (an continue to be with more shooting to come) the additional Swordmaster for The Hobbit. I’m also a professional stuntman and doubled Legolas on both the Rings and Hobbit Trilogy’s amongst many other productions. I have a great love for the LARP community and have worked and trained many of you overseas at various conventions. I must say that you are always some of the more enthusiastic and dedicated students. While I approach these workshops from a TV/Film angle, the skills are absolutely transferable to live-action-role-playing. Its all about safety first but also looking freakin awesome doing it! Please feel free to contact me directly through the website or Facebook page for any questions. Hope to see you there. - Allan
