FIGHT CHOREOGRAPHY - The Arts of Non-Verbal Dialogue
By John Kreng
Book Reviews and Comments
Creating a stage fight with a high level of clarity and entertainment value is a very complicated endeavor and requires skills that acting classes and martial arts schools cannot teach. Fight Choreography: The Art of Non-Verbal Dialogue helps filmmakers make sense of this art form and how they can use it to create their own styles of fights for a variety of projects, whether they be features-length films, shorts, or television shows. The book is instructional, informative, and entertaining, and focuses on every important element involved in fight choreography, from basic philosophies, initial concept, and planning, to filming, editing, adding special effects, and sound mixing the final product. The book is not only and indespensible resource for filmmakers, but will also interest film buffs who want to learn how great fight sequences are made so they can better appreciate the action!
