Low Down Dirty Shame--Training

We got involved in this film primarily because members of the Wayans family - including Writer/Director Keenan Ivory Wayans - are fans of Warriors Inc. and our work. Keenan had a number of serious firefights and a SWAT Team vertical assault included in his story of a slick, black private investigator and wanted us to help with the weapons work.

We shot in Los Angeles and at an abandoned shopping mall in Phoenix, Arizona. Most of the training and gunfight staging was done on the day and on the spot. We did advise the Prop Master regarding selection of weapons and special sighting devices (mainly lasers and AimPoint types) that we thought would juice up the action. We also assisted in staging some fights and a rooftop rappel sequence involving the SWAT Team.
