Post Choreographing / Shooting a Sword Fight?
Does anyone have any tips on choreographing sword fights? Any tips on shooting them?

Hand to Hand seems relatively easy. But with swords it just seems like there's so many possibilities. Maybe it's just another world than hand-to-hand.


Also any tips on shooting the sword fights? I would think the same rules of shooting hand-to-hand still apply.

Yeah weapons is something interesting to film too, id like to do a few projects myself that would include weapon combat

What weapons are you looking to use and are you going for the hk style or a western style weapons fight?

AD there are so many good examples, Rob Roy stands out, so does Princess Bride. The wider the better. They break this rule a lot nowadays of course, but before 2000 it was the standard.

I'd actually add The Phantom Menace to that list too. Very well shot sword fight scene.
