LET’S TALK STUNTS!
When watching your favorite movie or tv show, do you ever stop and wonder what it means to be a stunt performer? What does it take to be an action actor?
In this three day stunt action intensive, you will begin to learn the basic techniques of fighting on film, and most importantly how to keep yourself safe while performing your own action! The intensive will conclude with what it takes to actually perform in a stunt sequence. Techniques include how to properly fall down, throw a punch, and more when the cameras are rolling.
