The Sporino One-shot

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW -

Ado­nis Creed’s fight against Leo Sporino (pro boxer Gabe Rosado) is a sin­gle take. “It’s a big mo­ment for Ado­nis,” says Coogler. “And I re­alised that box­ing is re­ally in­ter­est­ing in that your coach leaves you, and you’re left in the ring by your­self un­til your coach comes back and then leaves you again. I be­came fix­ated on this yo-yo ef­fect, and that lent it­self to do­ing the fight in one take. In the grand scheme of ‘on­ers’, it’s not as tech­ni­cal as some. It was re­ally about con­di­tion­ing, mus­cle mem­ory and mem­o­ri­sa­tion.” In the end, they shot 11 takes. The one used was the ninth.
