Fight Directors and Action

Our Fight Directors are particularly specialist in creating work for Performance Capture and the growing field of 360° action for Virtual Reality (eg. for the Oculus Rift).  We also of course frequently arrange action for Film, T.V. and Theatre / live performance.  Captivate has a select group of Stunt Co-odinators who join the team as required.

She works closely with Director and Actors of each project to create dynamic, story-led action sequences that are organic and suited to the piece (avoiding the cliché of ‘staged’ combat).

Recent fight directing and movement directing work has been with the Melbourne Theatre Company (Melbourne Talam, Minnie and Liraz, Macbeth) and the Rose Theatre Kingston (The Wind in the Willows).  Currently Lyndall is teaching dramatic combat and motion capture at The Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne) and the Actors Centre London.
