Throwback Thursday: Fight Scene Rehearsal

Even a brief fight scene requires a lot of practice. Accidents can (and do) happen, but you want to take every precaution you can to ensure the actors’ safety and make sure that they never do anything that they’re uncomfortable with.

In this video, filmed earlier this year, fight coordinator Allan Gagner goes through the choreography of our short fight scene with actors Diogo Hausen (James) and Jupiter Collins (Lead Wasp-Man). He shows them how to properly swing and catch a small tree branch, safely tackle a person, throw a fake punch that will look real on camera, and more.
