What is a Stunt Co-ordinator?
A Stunt co-oridnator is a senior stunt performer with many years of experience across the field.Stunt coordinators often work very closely with the director to achieve the vision of the production. Because most stunts seen on television and in movies are deemed very dangerous, the stunt coordinator is most importantly responsible for the safety of all the staff and crew when stunts are being performed.In many cases, the stunt coordinator budgets, designs and choreographs the stunt sequence to suit the script and the director's vision.
What is a Stunt Performer?
Stunt Performers perform supervised stunts which are overseen by Stunt Action Co-ordinators, who are responsible for stunts across all the filming units involved.
Stunt Performers are highly trained and qualified professionals. They usually have some prior experience of working on film sets as extras, walk ons, Actors or runners.
They are employed by film production companies to take actors' places when dangerous or specialised actions are specified in the script, or to perform roles requiring specific skills, e.g. martial arts, diving, boxing, etc. They duplicate as closely as possible the Actors' appearance and body language while in character, so that stunt scenes can be edited seamlessly into the overall action. They are subject to stringent checks, in order to verify that they can carry out the work effectively and safely.
