Hey guys, I've got a film in pre-production now and I'm aware of a few fight scenes that will be included. In the past, I've filmed fight scenes directly with automatic settings on the camera; however I would like to achieve a much different look this time around.
I was wondering what types of settings that you guys have used on your camera's, and how you typically film your fight scenes. Should I film the action slower at 30FPS with a 1/60 shutter speed and speed the playback to 60FPS in post?
I guess I'm looking for your favorite techniques and maybe some examples if you've got them. I would love to achieve a look that blends the fight scenes from Gladiator (Russell Crowe, 2000) and Gorgeous (with Jackie Chan, 1999).
Thank you much.
