Comments from The Seattle Gregory Awards nominators:

"The fight choreography by Ian Bond was very effective and chilling in it's simple depiction of domestic violence."

"The fight choreography is so natural and effective, I did not realize I was watching fight choreography till I saw that I had to score it. Well done."

"The fight choreography was fantastic and felt very realistic yet imaginative. I especially loved the moment when Carol strangled Chris with her legs. It was incredibly surprising and effectively cruel."

"Death by thigh-strangling. Great piece of choreo - instinctive and yet so surprising."

I have been studying stage violence for years under Fight Master Geof Alm, one of the few certified fight masters with the Society for American Fight Directors. I am an Advanced Actor Combatant within the Society, the highest rank before becoming a certified teacher. I am also SAFD certified with Theatrical Firearms. My movement background also consists of animal flow and natural movement systems, Commedia dell'arte, yoga, and rock climbing.
