ACTION FIGHT CHOREOGRAPHER
Maria Tran brings a unique perspective to the film industry by working as a fight director and action fight choreographer for stage and screen productions.
As one of the few women in this role, she challenges the status quo and brings much-needed diversity to the field.
As the founder of Phoenix Eye Films, a female-led film production company, Maria explores the role of women in devising movement and choreography. She has extensive experience in this field and has worked on a variety of productions.
In 2019, she was hired by Bell Shakespeare to work on their production of Macbeth. She was responsible for devising, training, and leading movement rehearsals for the actors leading up to the show's performances at the Sydney Opera House and the Melbourne Playhouse.
Maria's skills as a fight director and action choreographer have also been put to the test on low-budget film productions such as the Bangladeshi action film "Ayotti." Despite having only 2 hours to meet the actors, assess their movement range, devise and rehearse action sequences, direct camera angles, and action direct the scenes, she exceeded expectations and delivered exceptional results.
