Directors Guild Workshop: CREATING VIOLENCE PART DEUX - PRACTICAL MAGIC FOR STAGE & SCREEN
thumbnail

5th November 2011, 10.30 am - 5pm

Academy of Live & Recorded Arts Theatre
Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, London SW18

How do you create violence on stage and screen?
How do you choreograph it? How do you film it?
How do you edit it?
What are the basic techniques for quick and dirty stage and screen violence?
How do you work with a fight director?
How do you keep it fresh onstage or on set?
And what do you when things go wrong?

 
An opportunity absolutely not to be missed, this second one-day practical workshop follows up our immensely popular (and sellout) introductory March 2010 Staging Violence

The day is hosted by fight director and British Academy of Fencing member Prof. Andy Wilkinson and Guild Chair Ivor Benjamin, film and television director Charles Marriott, with fighting guests Roger Bartlett, Ronin Traynor and veteran fight arranger Derek Ware.

A packed schedule will comprise:

  • a “film & edit fight” camera session with Charles Marriott and Andy Wilkinson
  • a practical introduction to the basics of staged combat
  • creating short action sequences for stage and screen
  • practical tips and tricks for stage and screen directors
  • a review of health and safety issues
  • a discussion of film edited during the day
  • Q&A

This workshop is for directors and students at all levels wanting to know more about the challenges of staging violence for film, television and theatre. No filming experience is necessary. Places are limited. Over 16s only.


Prof. Andy Wilkinson is a UK-based Director/Action Director and Sword Master with 27 years experience; he has either trained, worked for or alongside of the world’s top Fight Directors and stunt coordinators, and has a unique insight to this area of our craft. Andy has trained main cast actors, stunt actors and extras in fencing, sword play, unarmed combat and all period weapons fighting for large scale battle scenes as well as one-on one fight sequences. He’s been a professional member of the Guild for 10 years, is a three-time honoured member of The British Academy of Fencing – he is the only British Fight Director to win the coveted World Artistic Fencing Championships 2000 – and an active competitive coach and examiner. In 2009 at Warwick Castle he directed the largest swordplay spectacular ever staged in the UK, with over 100 swordsmen and fighters.

Ivor Benjamin has been staging fights for over 30 years, and is familiar with a wide range of martial arts and weapons. His “Stagefight 101” workshops ran at the National Student Drama Festival from 1987-2007.

Charles Marriott started his directing career as Assistant Director on such greats as Superman, YanksDragonslayer, Yentl and... Carry on Behind.  He formed the production companies Supervision Ltd and Superanimation Ltd and has directed and produced many programmes, documentaries, advertising and promotional films for major international companies. He has also worked in radio and theatre.

Roger is also an experienced actor with numerous credits to his name and runs Fights4Stage.

Ronin Traynor is resident fight director at the West Wing Arts Centre and a freelance choreographer, actor and fight performer. He is the secretary of the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat (BASSC).

Derek Ware is a veteran fight arranger and actor whose career spans almost 50 years. He has worked on everything from Z-Cars and the original The Italian Job to Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - it's a pleasure to welcome him to a Guild event.
