16 Dancing with the action
Drawing action is difficult. Knowing where to put the camera to cover the kicks, hits and explosions comes with practice. Think of it in terms of a dance; the camera moving in rhythm to the fight, jumping between punches, cutting from impact to reaction. Use wider shots for coverage, closer shots to show impacts and convey the brutality and pain. The same action will often be covered by several cameras from different positions, which reduces the number of times it might be necessary to repeat the stunt and gives the director multiple views to cut between in the edit. This will need to be reflected in your storyboards.
