Workshop in SWAT technique today with The Film Attic at Birkagården Stockholm. Awesome!
We practised taking out the gun and holding it in different stances, talked a lot about safety rules and made scenes with hostages, perpetrators and police officers. In the first scene I was a hostage which was very fun and I got into my character really good. So when people was shot and killed around me I started to cry.
In the other scene I got to be the rookie police in our squad and unfortunately got badly shot, possibly died. We used guns that only shoots pressed air, they make a sound but it’s really hard to tell if you actually get hit. The whole thing was a lot of fun and I’d love do another workshop with action film fighting!
- This is the perpetrator that shot me! No actually on this picture he is a policeman coming to save me and my collegues.
- Do you see me? I’m the hostage that the male perpatrator is pushing down towards the floor.
- They wanted to keep their kids but we, the social workers, thought they were unfit parents. Seems we were pretty right.
- My SWAT teammates!
