Stunt Reel Ready

March 26, 2018

 

Growing up I rode horses, practiced Shotokan karate and of course, danced. 

 

A few years ago I was Elle Fanning's stand in on an indie project in New York City. There was a scene requiring her to learn choreography for a street fight with her scene partner. I learned the choreography by watching during private rehearsal with all the keys. After rehearsal Elle went to hair and make up, and I practiced it for camera with her scene partner. The recognition I received from the director, Gaby Delall, and director of photography, David Johnson, for picking up the choreography resonates with me to this day. Needless to say it also switched on a light bulb. Why have I not been utilizing these skills in my own work as an actor?

 

This past year I was able to say, "put me in coach" and with the help of some amazing directors and stunt coordinators, perform my own stunts. I have, for the first time, a stunt reel with a few of my favorites. This reel includes sparring, kickboxing, basic trips and falls, and swimming. I hope you will check it out.
