"Fortune Cookie Magic Tricks" @SFIAAFF

This week, Martin De Boer, who played the role Warren McBeck / Zombie shares his experience with us. Martin is also our fight choreographer.

1. Can you briefly describe your character?
Warren McBeck is a nurse at a quite remarkable hospital. A place where you don’t really want to go unless you really don’t have another option. His real passion is becoming a bone doctor, but since he dropped out of highschool, he enjoys MMA instead. A good friend of him hired him to work in the hospital.
2. Besides playing Warren McBeck, you were also the stunt coordinator of “Fortune Cookie Magic Tricks”. The fight scene in the end looks amazing, what type of fighting style did you use?
I used a lot of MMA which is a combination of Kick Boxing and Grappeling. It’s a very popular style and you see it used all the time at UFC. For this film I made it a bit more flashy so it looks cool.
3. How did you manage to get other actors to fight like they know how to fight in the film?
We were fortunate to have cast people with a martial arts back ground. That really helped a lot. If people can pick up movements its not that complicated to make it look good. We rehearsed the fights so that everyone got used to the movements, and while shooting everyone did a great job.

 “Fortune Cookie Magic Tricks” will be screening on Feb 25th (9:50pm) at FLUXX Studio and Gallery in  Tucson, Arizona. Hope to see you there.
