Kristen Mun has been training, teaching, and working in the field of theatrical combat for over 10 years. She choreographs roughly 20 shows a year and teaches fight workshops. Kristen has won 3 Drammy’s and received the Leslie O. Fulton Fellowship.
Her work stresses safety and collaboration, believing that everyone’s input is important and problems can be solved faster working together.
Jerry Buxbaum has over 50 credits on major productions as a Fight Director, Stunt Coordinator and Special Effects Director. The biggest take-away from Jerry’s workshop participation is “Safety Number One.” He will explain, as exciting as “stunts” are, how to understand the environment actors work in on feature productions – and what steps are necessary to protect oneself from excessive requests by ‘Production’ on Set.
