Cinematic Fight Studio takes in Actress Kadia Saraf, product of the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, for an intensive twelve sessions of Basic Film Combat and five sessions of Weapon Film Combat. Her profound interest in action led her to Cinematic Fight Studio, a place that specializes in fight choreography and film combat training for actors. During her time there, Saraf became involved learning the basics of fighting for film. Although Kadia comes from a Kenpo-Jitsu martial arts background, she quickly learned that fighting for film is nearly the opposite of what she was taught from a practical martial arts stand point. "I thought it would be easy to learn the moves. In my first class I managed to hurt the trainers quite a bit and needed more time to transition to this newly acquired skill," says Saraf. After many sessions the movements, reactions, and everything else she was learning started to become second nature. "I realized right away that I'm at the right place as an actor and that it's a place I must keep coming back to in order to be the best in what I do." At the end of Saraf's training, Cinematic Fight Studio choreographed a fight scene to film and add into Saraf's reel.
Saraf plays a female lead role in the action short entitled "Most Wanted." The plot involves Saraf as a wanted person of interest becoming the target of a bounty hunter—played by Cinematic Fight Studio team member Neyssan Falahi—who is eager to capture the wanted character as he spots her running off into the forest.
