During the filming of these movies Philippe had the pleasure of working with the Thai stunt coordinator Kawee 'Seng' Sirikanerat, who’s work on The Beach and Rambo IV is highly regarded. Having lived in Thailand for over 5 years, Philippe has trained in Muay Thai, Tae kwon Do and Thai weapon training.
After living in Thailand, Philippe moved to Belgium and the UK where he started his own Video Production Company. Having the urge to become an Action Director, Philippe moved to Australia in 2001 where he worked and trained with some of the best stunt performers and coordinators in Australia. Some of his credits include The Great Raid, At World’s End, Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Iron Sky and The Killer Elite where he worked with Jason Statham and Robert De Nero.
Most recently he has doubled Todd Williams on San Andreas and worked on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales, Kong: Skull Island, The Meg and Aquaman. Learn more...

Doing Philippe's course was so much fun. He broke down the movements so they were easy to pick up. Filming an action scene made it so much more exciting and made me look like a female Jackie Chan. Highly recommend this course
Philippe is an extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient teacher. His passion for what he does shines through his detailed explanations and thorough demonstrations. I felt safe and comfortable to try new moves, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Philippe and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to further their training – from absolute beginner to professional. Thanks Philippe!
I was coached by Philippe Deseck whilst training at the New York Film Academy in 2015. He has years of knowledge and experience in the industry and during my studies he was patient, attentive and his passion for the craft always shone through. Stage combat is an important aspect in film making and I learnt so much under Philippe's guidance. I highly recommend this course to all aspiring Actors and Stunt Performers.
