Summary
"William Hobbs has now revised his classic Techniques of the Stage Fight to incorporate his extensive experience and increased expertise in this field. He offers guidelines for the preparation of fight scenes in all forms of media, with special focus given to the stage and with screen combat discussed separately." "Nowadays the public is exposed to all types of violence, real and unreal, which makes the job of presenting a staged fight all the more difficult. One of the main challenges is how to produce the effect of reality but to use only that level of simulated violence that the play requires. The author shows how to make a fight scene an integral part of the play: by creating and selecting moves which relate to the character, by sharpening the performer's skill and by forwarding the story. There are chapters on: analysis and construction, movement and shapes, fight orchestration, safety, basic movements, battles, the author's own fight notation system and much more."--BOOK JACKET
