Video: The photo shoot

Okay so walk right up to the center. Let me grab a focus on you. Walk up to the center line. Like stand, someone stand right there on that center line if you would. I'm going to focus on you. There we go. Okay, so it's going to take me a couple to figure out where the where the little, the, the climactic moment is. So, whenever you're ready. (SOUND). Okay, so take that whole thing and move it over three feet that way so when you finish, you finish across the line from each other, all right? So what i, what is the moment here? Is it, is it when, is it when the blade's being parried? Is that what's going on or? Male (INAUDIBLE) We assume one hand over there.

Is it, is it when, is it when the blade's being parried? Is that what's going on or? Male (INAUDIBLE) We assume one hand over there.

Male Okay, so, okay (CROSSTALK). Slow, slow, give me slow motion is what you're doing cause I'm an idiot. Okay, it's the second hit that I'm looking for right? Male Yeah, yeah. Male That bump bump. Male Yes. Male Got it. Alright hit me. Not literally. Male We're going to wait before you. Male Yeah, can someone else can tell us what to do? Male (CROSSTALK) No no, I'm trusting your instincts with this cause I really, as little as I understand fencing I understand sabers less, okay? Male Okay, but I got that. Alright, okay, hang on, let me reframe.

I want to get this nice and tight. Uno momento, por favour. Male Alright. Go ahead. Okay, so here's what I'm looking for, when you're coming down with it. Make sure that you don't lose your line, but when you're coming down with that final hit, when you're coming down, your saber starts to flex a little bit.

So that, what that's doing is showing me that there is motion and you are about to take one on the top of the head. So it's that little of suspense that i'm trying to grab, okay? And I'm late. I got the bounce, (LAUGH) does that count? Okay? (SOUND). That was better. Okay, so I've got, I've got your, your, your saber literally bending around your, his head as he took it that time. So, alright, go ahead. Alright, so just keep going for him, you don't need me to tell you, just do them. And I'm just working on my timing.

You guys have it. Okay, relax for a second. Okay, all right. Hit him. Did you miss him to the side that time? Okay, I, I thought it was me, all right? (LAUGH) Okay? (SOUND) that I got, alright. Really come down on him, here we go. (SOUND) , (LAUGH), does it hurt to get hit that many times in a row like that? (LAUGH) Okay, go.

Okay, I'm too early that time. Alrighty, alright. sorry, sorry, sorry, I (LAUGH). (LAUGH) I gave you an ambiguous queue. Alright, someone stand right on the line for a second, I'm going to grab focus.

Okay, you're sharp. Okay, now back up to where you were. Here we go. (SOUND). That's actually really good. There were, you, you, your heel was just about to come down at that point. So it's not the strike, but you're definitely moving in. The light looks awesome. Alright, (SOUND) oh I like that you guys are starting to improvise a little bit? Male Yeah. Male Alright hit it. Go ahead. I'm with you. (SOUND). Male Alright, give me a couple of minutes of just sparring around that line.

So, so go ahead, I'm just going to play. (SOUND) okay? (SOUND). Kay you keep going I'm, I'm just going to shoot you. (SOUND) , (LAUGH). Oh these are going to look awesome. (SOUND), Okay, either one of you, take your weapon and, and put it up against that light and give it a push where it will.

Where it will move, this way or that way, not, not towards me, but I just want to get it moving out of the way so I can I can shoot a couple frames without it. Push it a little more. Get, just give it a little more of, of a push, it's fine, it'll be, okay great thank you. And you don't have to, you don't have to do anything. I'm just going to shoot it as it goes out of its line. (SOUND) Alrighty. Gentlemen.

Gentlemen, you're set. You're good. Step back here for a second and look at the camera. So I want to make sure that everyone, Okay so this is, everybody hold up one, one finger so I'll know you were team one. Okay, I'm going to do, I'll make sure I have a final print done for everybody. Even if, even if it doesn't, doesn't make the final print from the DVD I want to make sure everyone's in a poster with the light taken out. (LAUGH), So hang on. So take, take a look at this. And we get before the lights were swinging.
