Industry professionals run our classrooms like real film sets, using high tech studio equipment. In addition, students will gain excellent communication skills, improved self-worth and self-confidence, all of which will become second nature in front of the camera and in everyday life… You will be fearless and have tons of fun!!!

STAGE COMBAT FOR THE SCREEN!
Level 1 :The Fundamentals with Shawn Baichoo


2 classes, 5 hours per class
Frequency: Bi-Weekly or Sat and Sunday consecutively

Let’s face it. Action scenes dominate the market: ducking from a swinging punch, or jumping on the ground while taking cover from a tornado, or even something simple like pushing your scene partner against the wall… actors need training in stage combat. Whether you’re the lead actor fighting in “The Avengers”, or a day player running away from a gun fight, producers rather depend on actors that can handle physical exertion. They need to feel confident that you can handle stage combat and flexible movement and still be able to say your lines! Producers expect professional actors to adapt quickly to the blocking and the staging of movement without compromising the performance or wasting time on set.

SAA’s Stage Combat for the Screen Level 1 is a comprehensive 2 day workshop that will empower you to safely execute basic stunts while acting.

Students will learn: safety first (and the appropriate channels to report to should you feel unsafe), grabs, hair pulls, choking, collisions, fainting, slaps, punches and other physical movement seen on the screen!

STAGE COMBAT FOR THE SCREEN!

Level 2 : Intro to Weaponry and Defensive Techniques

You now have a solid foundation to safely fight on the offensive!
But now what about safely executing on the defensive?
Level 2 Stage Combat for the Screen will take care of that!

Move forward and master the skill to execute defensive movement such as blocking a punch, ducking from a swinging baseball bat, diving for cover and the like.

Once that is complete, students will be ready to jump into a choreo fight with scene partners. In addition, we will introduce weaponry, such as a knife, in our choreo fight scenes!
