We prepped the fight sequence to make the most of our small stage and shooting hours. The blocking was mostly horizontal, so adding weapons and a chair expanded the visual and dramatic potential of the space. Armed with a plethora of props from the Warner Bros prop house, we dove headfirst into this cheeky, freaky combat short.
Our aim was to follow-up an exterior day-time fight sequence, which was much more fluid and photographically improvised, by confining ourserlves to a limited space to better create the atmosphere. Night shoots can be tough, even brutal when you’re shooting outside of the studio zone, but the cast and crew all loved the project and were fantastic to work with.
