Stay Off The Stairs

As it did in its first seasonDaredevil continues to deliver brutal, well-choreographed fight scenes via smooth camera work. Ethan Alter spoke with fight coordinator Philip Silvera, whose credits include Thor: The Dark World and Deadpool, on what went into developing the stairwell brawl (above) for the show’s second season episode “New York’s Finest”:
“It was a big undertaking. We had to make smart decisions, like “Is the camera leading or the action leading and the camera is catching up?” The camera was mostly handheld, and there are certain sequences where we’re lowering it or handing it off to another person as they’re going down so we can stay constantly in motion. We were in a real building in Long Island City, so these were tight spaces.”
