The Summer Slasher Workshop!


Summer is one of the best times for indie filmmakers to be filming horror movies. This workshop’s goal is to help actors really get into the pathos of being both the slasher and the victim, then seeing how that changes a performance once it’s on its feet. We’ll also have a special effects makeup artist to take us through the process of creating some of the more common gags and kills for horror movies. Finally, we’ll apply it all to choreography with knife.

 Accelerate your skills  

This workshop is all about working fights based in closed, tight environments. We will be adapting a combination of military CQC and civilian self-defense techniques for choreography, then performing it at varying levels of spacing and intensity.
