I have been filming for many years but am certainly an amateur.  My grandson is a fantastic hockey player and everyone depends on me to take the videos and either give them out upon request or post on YouTube.  They all go on YouTube for the dad's to critcise (sorry kids).

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?

IfI wanted to write a 2 minute piece of a screen play (movie) and send it to abig name LIKE Josh Wheton for his next movie what steps would I take forsubmission?

WouldI write a script for the actors and what style/format/look/type of paper to
print it on?

WouldI need to storyboard the scene, or do they like it best submitted via a
graphics storyboard program?

Whatare the methods of submission? Forinstance if I contacted the company representing the producer, should I contactthe writer?
