We offer stunt training catered for those looking to enter the world of stunt performing for film and television or for those looking to expand their current set of skills and improve their general knowledge of the business and industry.
Training is designed to familiarize students with a wide variety of commonly used stunt skills and to introduce and familiarize them with other advanced and specialized stunt skills and scenarios that one might encounter during their stunt career. The stunt performing business is an exciting and rewarding career, however it can take many years of dedication and networking in order to succeed in this industry.
