Just a note on recent past and upcoming events involving The Ring of Steel. We appeared as guest speakers and demonstrators at the 2nd Vancouver WebFest where Joanne and I presented a furious rapier and dagger duel in full costume. I co-sat a Q&A with stunt coordinator Kirk Jacque on fight direction and set safety, and Joanne and her assistants presented a flying demonstration with her beautiful falcons and hawk, then set on a Q&A with other participants about the use of animals on the set.
The WebFest was a great success and we look forward to participating in future festivals.
We will also be appearing as sword and falconry demonstrators and lecturers once again at the Victoria Highland Games on the weekend of May 16 – 18th in Victoria, BC.
Stay tuned for an illustrated article on the four guards of the German school of Longsword!
