Star Wars Force Camp Academy
Episode 4: The Living ForceDuring the summer of 2016, Kung Fu of Golden Dragon held a 3-week Star-Wars-themed course for the Tiger and Dragon students where they learned basic camera acting, fight choreography, and kung fu techniques. They worked hard, they played even harder, and they gave their best effort for the silver screen. The result – we completed the first installment of our fanfiction send-up, The Dark
Chronicles: A Star Wars Tale. Each of our young actors brought their character to life and helped to light up the story!
Kung Fu of Golden Dragon's second week of Star Wars Summer Camp was just as awesome as the first, if not more in some ways! While the first week was focused on filming a part of our sendup series, Star Wars: The Dark Chronicles, this week was all about using the skills we learned so far for FUN!
Today was the big Wrap Day. After such a high-paced week, we decided to start shooting earlier so the kids could relax for the second half of the day.
Thursday proved to be the most challenging day for everyone, and the students impressed their teachers with their positive attitude and hard work.
Today was extra fun because we received some extra help from two awesome individuals, Michele Prymicz and Natasha Kalinsky.
Both of these ladies' help was indispensible, and they helped to bring out a new energy in the students that made their performances that much better. As a side project, three of our actors even put together their own fight scene, complete with backstory and choregraphy done all own their own.
Kicking off the second day was even more fun than expected!
Today marks the first day of our Star Wars Force Summer Camp at Kung Fu of Golden Dragon! We have lots of fun and hard work planned this week, so today was all about PREPARATION! Our young padawans began their day with kung fu and lightsaber training, followed by an intensive fight choregraphy seminar led by Dmitry and Bohannon. After lunch, the kids broke off into groups for acting games and script reading. Everyone was excited about building their character for the upcoming shoot. They even got to design their own costumes! With our cast ready, and the crew helping to put things in full swing, everyone went home anxious for the next big day (after group games, of course).
Kung Fu of Golden Dragon will be holding its next Star Wars Summer Force Camp on June 27 2016. Improve your child's skills and abilities in Kung Fu and acting with the Force! Our last workshop was a sweeping success, and we're planning even BIGGER things for the upcoming sessions.
