So you may be wondering “what exactly is stunt design?” And “why would I need it?” Well the purpose of stunt design is to plan out, choreograph and arrange the action sequences in your project to be innovative, maximize safety, increase production value, stay within your budget and minimize expenses.
Accomplishing all of this is easier said than done and requires training and expertise unique to our profession. Our stunt coordinators brainstorm with your director and producer to identify the design, style, and scope of the action. We then work hand-in-hand with your special effects technicians, pyrotechnics technicians, make-up artists and props department to ensure all stunts are performed safely, accurately and consistently. We also handle all license requirements and liaise with insurance companies if needed.
We also hire the industry’s top stunt performers & stunt doubles, stunt drivers, riggers and other various specialists. We make sure to get you the best talent for every position that you need.
