About the Event
Two and a half days of flying like a true action hero! If you are a stunt performer or training to become one, this comprehensive workshop will be invaluable. Note that it is designed for those who have previous experience with wires. We might be able to open a few entry level places closer to the course.
During the workshop we will revisit the fundamentals of horizontal and vertical wire pulls, along with basic rigging etiquette. We will then advance to adding rotation into standard wire pulls. We will combine various flying and pulling techniques with fight coreography.
During the workshop we cover camera angles and film making techniques to enable you capture footage of your work on your own device.
Come fly around like an action hero!
