Hubert Boorder- Fight Coordinator

We got him guys!!! Shadow Hunters is wrapping up for the season while Star Trek ( the biggest show in Toronto right now) is in prep. That means that the fight coordinator for both those shows is not only (kinda) available but fully into hosting a workshop for you guys!


Aside from building and developing fights for both of these  huge productions, this man has also doubled for Vin Diesel, Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa, so needless to say he’s gathered a wealth of practical information and skills over the last 20 years,  We are so grateful he’s willing to share!  His complete list of skills, training and credits are extensive and to be honest, Im trying to post this before the event completely sells out, so  but feel free to check them out by clicking on the link bellow.

Hubert Boorder is hosting 2 day workshop that will follow the same format as that of John Stead, however while John focused on the angles, Hubert will be focused more heavily on the REACTIONS you need to know (and perfect) in order to sell your shots. He will also go over how to build a basic action demo when you don’t have any credited content and if you are into it, we’ll hold a demo building workshop at some point as well.
