I have more money in the form of camera gear than I do in my bank account right now.
Thanks! Under less pressed circumstances, I might have considered doing a locked off shot in between there, but it just didn't happen for us. Glad you liked it.
Thanks! Actually we filmed with the SLR MAGIC 1.33x ANAMORPHOT on the GH4 in 4k 16:9 mode. So it was all filmed in anamorphic. All the framing and composition you see is done on purpose, its my preferred filming style. The only crop is done on the DJI OSMO shots. to match the GH4. Personally, I don't like tripods, I find them cumbersome and in the way, we had one on set, but the speed at which we had to move, I didn't even look at it.

It helps to have actual fighters/martial artists on set to help. They are invaluable to help achieving a really effective fight sequence. Rehearsals are key as well. Here, check out this short I made for a 48 Hour film Challenge. The genre was zombie, but we managed to effectively incorporate some action into it- https://youtu.be/yEk3fVm1-X8
