Cry Havoc Action is a fight choreography group based
in Austin, Texas. We specialize in combative choreography for stage,
television, and motion pictures. This group was created in 1998 as a
Stage Combat Group for theatre. In 2005, the founders began consulting,
choreographing, and providing stunt performers for television
commercials and motion pictures.
Their first cinematic breakthrough came in 2007, when Cry Havoc Action was commissioned to choreograph fight scenes for Willie Nelson's action movie "Fighting with Anger." The film received 2 awards in 2007 from the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF) for "Best Feature Film" Action, as well as Best Actor "Male" due to Willie Nelson's performance. Since 2006, the group has had the honor of working with stunt professionals such as Mark Kay, Richard Hancock, and Jeff Schwan.
In 2009, the group members were nominated for the B. Iden Payne award from the Greater Austin Creative Alliance for Outstanding Fight Choreographer for Uprise! Productions stage play "Windows.">
In 2006, Cry Havoc Action Choreography was a finalist in a 6 month international web video contest through Famecast.com, ultimately ranking 3rd place overall out of the 200 entrants.
Cry Havoc Action Choreography members currently provide performances and workshops at camps through BookPeople and continue to work with film makers in Austin as crew, actors, and choreographers.
