Allan Poppleton is the fight coordinator and stunt coordinator for our beloved The Hunger Games movie. Unsure of who he is? Well if you have seen The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, or Avatar, just to name a few, then you have seen his work. Rachel Herriman at Teen Ink interviewed Allan while he was still filming The Hunger Games and here is a bit of that interview:
RH- Explain the process of creating a fight scene from rehearsal until filming close.
AP- It starts with script/treatment, which would outline the fight. I would gather information from different departments, like armory, costume, art, location, ect. From there, I throw in my intellectual property and then take that along to meet with the director.
From there, I will start choreographing; then teach the doubles or performers, and then film the rehearsals to then show to the director. Once he has signed off on the fight, I begin to teach the actors. Once they have learned it, I see it through on set with the filming of it.
RH- Aside from The Chronicles of Narnia and Eragon, you have also worked on the film adaption of The Hunger Games; what can fans expect to see?
AP- Hunger Games is going to awesome! I am still working on it at the moment, so am unable to say anything about it…Sorry! But make sure you check it out!
Thanks Rachel Herriman (TheJust) at Teen Ink!
