Fight Directors and Action

Our Fight Directors have a wealth of experience in Film, Theatre and Live Theatre, and also particularly specialise in Motion Capture and Performance Capture.

Our Fight Directors are also Movement Directors and Actors, and draw on this to create fully integrated story-telling pieces.

Captivate has a select group of Stunt Co-odinators who join the team as required.
