Screen Combat (Qld)




yasca-floor-workA two-day workshop in Screen Combat for Film & TV on the Gold Coast, with leading professional action director and stunt coordinator, Yasca Sinigaglia.

Fight action on screen can be incredibly exhilarating, but is also demanding and potentially dangerous without the correct techniques and safety skills. Yasca will guide you through his approach to fight choreography for film and TV so you will never be caught out when fighting is required for your on screen projects.

The two-day workshop is designed to give you a solid foundation in working as an actor or emerging stunt performer in the film and television industry, including:

  Working on camera: safety, angles, speed, and the static vs moving camera

  The fighter’s toolbox: punches, kicks, throws, takedowns, breakfalls and more

  Action casting: what a stunt coordinator might be looking for

  Partner fights vs large-scale Brawls

  On-set etiquette

  Working internationally vs working in Australia

  INCLUDES: 30 second edited clip of you working on the day!


yasca-cameraWe will have an action camera present for sections of the weekend, so you can see how your work translates on screen. Selected sequences will also be edited as we go so you can learn how your performance affects post-production, and therefore how you can provide the most useful footage. There will also be an optional upgrade of showreel material for participants.

Whether a beginner, a seasoned veteran, or somewhere in between – by the end of the course you will have increased your skill base, furthered your knowledge, and gained more of the experience you need to find this kind of action work, and perform it well and safely.

The course will give personalised training that caters to a range of backgrounds: from experienced fight performers to new practitioners; from actors to stunt performers to martial artists. Within this we will also develop the important craft of working with various performers on set, whose skill levels will be varied as a rule, to give you the training you need to bring the best out of all situations.
