Escape Velocity 2016

Ready to Conquer Deep Space?

We had a blast talking phasers, sabers, and practicing the arts of sci-fighting with those who chose to boldly go with us to Escape Velocity, brought to you by the Museum of Science Fiction.

EV1

We held five workshops throughout the weekend on sci-fighting and fight choreography, where we gave con-goers the opportunity to learn about angles of attack, movement, performance principles, and even be the action themselves with choreographed light saber duels and Avengers-styled close-quarters combat! Star Trek weapon designer Dan Curry even popped by to show us some moves!

EV2

In addition to out workshops, we held a panel on science fiction weaponry and combat called “Phasers and Sabers.” It was quite an exciting discussion!
