The more complex fights I've shot have been choreographed by professional fight / stunt choreographers. They work out the complete fight scene(s), rehearse it with the cast and come to set with a rough rehearsal video to show the key camera positions and movement to pull it off. If you need a name PM me and I'll give you the contact info. I don't know what they charge but for the time it saved on set I'd say it was fairly priceless.
Thanks for the reply Robert, and I'm sorry if I was unclear. This is a union feature and all the fights we're shooting are exactly as you've described. Professionlly staged and choreographed by top fighters and choreographers. I've shot many (staged) fights to this day and am very familiar with the conventional angles and approaches to fight photography. I was wondering if there were any unusual or uniques tips, tricks or camera rigs some of you may have used to spice up fight scenes.
