Learn what makes a hit, and what sells it, what makes the action sequences we love work. Learn the basic rules for creating and shooting action, basic safety, blocking choreography, how to do good looking action on a low budget. Mr. Sargent will go into his wide experience in preparing and improving action for the many great directors he's worked with, and demonstrate the basics using trained stunt people, and members of the audience.
