He then started C.B.T. Stunt Alliance, an Elite Tactical Stunt team specializing in playing Elite Military Operators (i.e. U.S. Army – DELTA FORCE, SEAL Team 6, S.W.A.T, etc.). Dillon acquired extensive experience in military / paramilitary / counter-terrorism training for use in film & TV over the years (see below).

After stunt coordinating for years with a variety of productions, Dillon got tired of directors butchering his work in post production, so he attended and graduated film school as a director. Since then Dillon has went on to become an award winning filmmaker. His awards include: 3 awards for ‘Best Feature Film’; 1 for ‘Best Anthology’; as well as 2 nominations for ‘Best Director’ and 1 nomination for ‘Best Stunt Coordinator’.
Productions loved working with Dillon because not only was he an experienced stunt coordinator yet also being a director he spoke their same language. Plus, he not only knew how to coordinate the action sequences yet how to shoot them for less money, in less time yet with the same or BETTER production value. These qualities made Dillon the ‘Go To’ stunt coordinator for his clients.
After years of working with productions as a stunt coordinator, he finally decided to make the transition to directing full time and has been passing all the stunt coordinating jobs to the other HIGHLY capable stunt coordinators on his stunt team.
After years of training actors and stunt performers in stunt training (more than 100+), plus getting many inquiries from people all over the world who were not able to travel to California to train with his stunt team, Dillon founded the C.B.T Stunt Alliance Online Action University to make it possible for aspiring actors and stunt performers around the world to be able to get a solid foundation in various types of stunt training for film & TV to be able to launch and grow their careers.
