Screen Combat Masterclass

Monday 6th to Friday 17th December 2021

Join us for a series of masterclass workshops in a variety of disciplines for screen combat.

Over this 2 week intensive course  you will learn a variety of screen combat disciplines including  disciplines of; Sword and Shield, and Martial Arts Unarmed

This is a unique opportunity to study a variety of weapons and disciplines in the art of fighting for film. Screen combat is rapidly becoming a staple skill for today’s industry as seen in series such as Vikings, Game of Thrones, Beowulf and Britannia, and films such as Thor, Captain America, Dunkirk and 300 requiring greater involvement from actors within fight and action Scenes.

The workshops will be physically demanding, so a certain level of physical fitness/ability is desired. We can adapt sessions and techniques if you have specific physical requirements (Please contact us before booking so that we can make any necessary preparations).

Be Prepared to work hard - Whilst we would advise having had prior experience in fighting for film or theatre, this is not a requirement of the course. Everyone from beginner to expert should be able to complete the course, picking up vital skills and having some fun along the way!

Price: £550 (for ten days)
