Off The Ground Theatre Company got in touch about their summer tour ‘The Musketeers’, a rip roaring outdoor show full of comedy, dancing and sword fights. I I attended one of their rehearsals and produced this, a short trailer to showcase their excellent choreography and play with my new stabilized Gopro setup. Here’s the result.
Having recently watched ‘Kingmasn – The Secret Service’ I really wanted to use long shots and avoid cutting on the action like most made for TV fight scenes. Because these fights are designed for the stage there’s no need to fool the audience with camera tricks. I just have to be in the right place at the right time to make the hits look good.
