Not even Superman gets to fly before the anchor-points has been set (unless it’s CGI)! We will go over the basics of rigging points, securing anchors, designing and building truss-rigs.
- Theory and safety
- Setting up truss-rigs
- Abseiling and rope ascension
- Simple lifting with pulley systems
Rigging or wirework is a big part of the stunt and film industry. Helping superheroes fly around, pulling bad guys through the air or suspending set pieces and actors from the ground. It’s hard to imagine an action film without it!
- Working with counter weight systems
- Jerk and ratchet systems (manual and pneumatic)
- Slack-lines and deadmans
Float effortless through the air with grace, or at least learn how to make it look like you’re not hanging from ropes. It takes training, strength and knowledge to achieve this, hanging upside down, flipping or spinning around. Get familiar with the gear and harnesses.
- Aerial balance and technique
- Wall running / Dancing
- 2D-systems and sequences
