FUSION FACTORY FILMS, LLC is a production company dedicated to creating innovative cross-genre film, television, and web-based digital media involving action, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror elements.

So what does this have to do with RISK FACTOR: ACTION TRAINING CENTER? It’s pretty simple. It’s no secret that we use a great deal of the performers who train at Risk Factor as our primary source of talent for the films made through FFFilms. This isn’t because we are clannish or elitist, we are definitely aware there is great talent out there in our local acting community. But when it comes to producing conservative budget films, there is a really solid formula we like to maintain.

 

It goes like this. We consider ourselves to be a troupe of sorts, a team of individuals that trains together regularly in an effort to allow a solid group dynamic to manifest to a level that goes beyond a single project. Our performers become multi-faceted (meaning we all wear a lot of hats). We do this because it allows the majority of our team to be active in the production from beginning to end rather than just a day or two on set. Thus, it is not uncommon for our members to have a character tailor written for them. In this fashion our members are involved in the development of their character, and as the script evolves, the performer evolves.

And of course there is the subject of action. Most (okay all) of our films contain a great deal of physical action. Although normal actors are always willing to train prior to a role, there is rarely time to refine their abilities, so what we end up with is “okay” action when we could have “amazing” action. No disrespect to actors, but bad physical dialogue is just like bad verbal dialogue. Many would suggest that we can use camera tricks you can make an actor look good. Sometimes that’s true, but at the end of the day the audience is sophisticated enough to know we had to adapt to the actors limited skills.

Many other unique opportunities are also available, such as; project development, production positions, prop creation, special fx makeup, costume design, set construction, and everything in-between.

If you want to be a part of the creative process...then RISK FACTOR: ACTION TRAINING CENTER is the place to do it!
