Stars Reveal What No One Knows About Action Scenes
In an interview with the website Collider, actors Chris Evans and Ana de Armas commented on the production of the action scenes that the public sees on screens.
“I think the time it takes to shoot just, the simplest thing that maybe is on screen for two minutes, would take two weeks. Like the scale, the complexity of how to get all the actors and elements and locations together or whether it’s in the studio and blue screen or whatever, how to make it all work at once and combine with each other the energy and characters and everything. that’s just, it’s very, very complex. Really tiring”, Ana de Armas said.
Chris Evans complemented the colleague’s speech, remembering how much they need to dedicate themselves to the same movement for a long time so that the details are perfect.
“I mean, it’s repetition. In addition to this film, Ana and I made another film together, and in this film, it required this constant repetition. And it’s one thing if the scene itself only requires a moment of action, the whole setup and every moment is devoted to a quick punch.”
“But if that quick punch also embodies a little humanity or comedy, or a little tape of something authentic that also elevates the action to something more relatable, that you have to repeat those things over and over.”
“It’s repetition. It’s the fact that you’re going to be doing the same thing from a thousand angles, a thousand times. And you can’t walk away, because every take matters,” he pointed out.
