major fight scene shooting help
Posted 26 February 2008 - 06:50 AM
this is my first time on cinematography.com and I am loving it already.
I am a senior in high school and I am directing a two-hour action feature (to submit to many festivals and competitions)
There are a lot of fight scenes/sequences in this movie and I am in need of help.
i know this may seem a bit weird, but im trying to stage fight scenes like the ones shown in these links.
based on that, how many cameras would you think I would need, and what types of shots would i need as well as what to do in editing in order for me to achieve similar results?
Thanks for your time and help

As far as the shooting of it, they've also employed a camera that can shoot at a very high frame rate to produce those radical slow motion shots. This is something more than a 60fps camera - looks like at least 120fps to me and some software slowdown like Twixtor or something similar.
Advice: Making a fight scene like that is not for beginners.
