Last Friday, I had the privilege to go up to the Tempest Freerunning Academy to participate in a special event for Assassin’s Creed. During the day, we got to learn some basic parkour and screen fighting techniques that are used in the film. In addition, I got the chance to speak to Peter Lee Thomas, one of the stunt coordinators on the movie. I have to say, I have a much greater appreciation for the stunts performed by these amazing people now that I’ve tried them myself. It makes me much more curious to see Assassin’s Creed, which opens on December 21st.
When Michael Fairbanks first saw Sam Rami's Spider-Man film back in 2002, everything changed. The experience began a lifelong passion for cinema that has gone undeterred since. In 2009 he began reviewing movies on Youtube, which ultimately sprang into a lifelong passion for film criticism and entertainment reporting. He is currently studying screenwriting at Chapman University. Aside from seeing movies, Michael enjoys making bad puns while playing video games, going on long late night drives, and socializing over large plates of food.
