My name is Carter Ferguson and I have been directing fight sequences in the UK since 1995. I’ve worked on hundreds of projects from small scale community theatre to large scale international film productions. I’ve also been lucky enough to work with some of the best directors, film crews and actors in the world. These include Idris Elba, David Tennant, Kevin McKidd, Minnie Driver, James Nesbitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Jim Caviezel, Malcolm Macdowell, Euan Bremner, Jamie Bamber, Tobias Menzies, James Purefoy and Sam Heughan.

 

I began my training with the late fight director and Olympic fencing coach Professor Bert Bracewell. Whilst studying a degree in Drama at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh I specialised in Fight Direction. Before graduating, I had already directed fight sequences for QM itself and for Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

 

In recent years I’ve also been producing and directing and have won many awards in that field. My film FAST ROMANCE won the Cineworld Audience Award for Best Picture at the Scottish Baftas in 2011.

 

In 2018 I launched my podcast FILM PRO PRODUCTIVITY & SUCCESS, which is available on all podcast apps.
