Choreography For Your Union Production

I Am Not Unionized

By Equity rules, you must attempt to hire an Equity Fight Director. If you do not know any, contact your rep who will help you locate one.

If you’ve made your best effort, and no one is available, you can hire a member of Fight Directors Canada (such as myself), and offer an Equity contract.

“Attack The Problem” Consultation

Contact me to arrange a free, no obligation consultation in which we’ll:

  • Clarify your production’s needs for stage combat
  • Discuss exciting possibilities for the shape of fights
  • Identify your needs for weapons and fight props
  • Plan fight rehearsals for best results
  • Leave the session energized and inspired that the violence in your show will be extraordinary.

What Weapons and Styles?

I have formal training in many weapons for stage combat, and several styles of real martial arts (Eastern and European). Too many to list here, so Click Here for Weapons or Click Here for my Resume

Rate Per Rehearsal

You may bring me in for one rehearsal if the stage combat you need can be reasonably choreographed in one session. That includes one slap, one fall, or other simple actions. If there is a full fight, weapons or not, I will need to come in for a full day, and for the safety of the performers, I will need to attend subsequent rehearsals to ensure that the techniques are still performed safely and to make adjustments as needed.

The Champion Package

For every union show, I provide:

  1. Initial Consultation
    We will have a detailed meeting, where we’ll establish:

    • Your production’s stage combat needs
    • Decide on the most exciting possibilities for the shape of fights
    • What props and weapons are needed and where to get them
    • A plan and rehearsal schedule that will optimize the final performance
  2. Planning
    Before my first rehearsal with your actors, I will meticulously prepare:

    • Script analysis and research
    • Create choreography for your particular set
    • Source fight-worthy props and weapons
  3. Unlimited Rehearsals
    I will be at as many rehearsals as needed. I will not send assistants in my place, I will personally attend whenever you ask. I will:

    • Train actors in safe and effective techniques
    • Teach the choreography
    • Incorporate the fight into the scene, with elements such as:
      • Martial attitude
      • Stances and how to carry weapons
      • Flourishes
      • Playing wounds
      • How to die on stage
  4. Follow Up
    I will go beyond the rehearsal to:

    • Provide written choreography in my uniquely clear manner that incorporates pictures of your actors performing the moves
    • Be available for changes to choreography, re-casting or other needs.
