What's Included

INTRO TO STUNT PERFORMING - 2-day workshop with three local professional stunt performers. This workshop will provide information and practical training in the basics of Film/TVStunt work. Participants will get information on safety, set protocol, film language, and playing to the camera. The instructors will also cover what all stunt persons need to have in their gig bag. And then the fun begins. The participation portion of the workshop includes Basic punches, kicks, ground falls, throws, hair pulls, chokes and found weapon training. Students will choreograph a basic stunt sequence that will be recorded and reviewed. (DVD's of the raw footage will be available). This time around they will also "take them through the process of getting hired on as a coordinator and also as a stunt person." Bielich said. "We are going to include call sheets, Taft-Hartley explanation (as it relates to stunts). In the stunt portion, we are going to do a better job explaining what "All expected abilities" means.
