STAGEFIGHT’s Screen Combat training course has been specifically designed to provide actors with the practical skills needed to become a successful screen combatant. Popular TV-shows, such as Game of Thrones, Vikingsand the boom in independent film production has created great opportunities for actors and stunt professionals alike.
