  • A good DP must also be able to direct. The actors cannot pose and frame themselves. There are many essential effects that rely on direction delivered by the DP, and not the director. How do you think sword stab-throughs are done on Game of Thrones? You’ll see in this BTS, that the actors are just catching the stunt sword under their armpits. That’s how it’s been done in theater since the beginning of time. But, it works seamlessly on camera thanks to framing and posing. Chances are, as DP, you’ll be brought on a production before the stunt coordinator. The director will come to you to set the mix of practical and digital effects. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great stunts and weapons people. It’s an invaluable experience.. . To sell someone getting impaled by a sword, your goal is to get the actors organically into the right profile or OTS position at the right time. This means a precision choreography of talent and camera. You can’t just follow, you must invent the path.  Staying a bit longer in your lens choice, and a bit farther from your subject will help a lot. Don’t be afraid of handheld, and don’t fetishize stabilization. Little camera twitches right as the sword moves, will help sell it. The actor must be taught how to do the move right though. It’s a very fast and jerky motion that takes practice. You must fight for rehearsals. It will take time and a lot of mental effort. In the edit, one or two frames can be removed right as the sword is being caught to help juice it. If DP and Stunts work hand-in-glove, most fight effects can be done practically. Learn to really respect the word “effect.” Because it is your job to constantly produce effects, even if that effect is just a beautiful closeup of an actress. Film is all trickery and craft. If you don’t like that, go do documentaries. You can’t just fly from the seat of your pants and copy and paste the same look you’ve done a million times. You must see your work as a puzzle as much as a painting.
