Why do you need to join this course?

It happens quite often that an Actor or a Stunt Performer gets called in to do a fight scene and they suddenly panic because they don't have the necessary skills or training in order to perform a simple fight scene.

I have been working in the film industry for over 25 years and have seen many people come and go. In my day it was very difficult to know where to train or what to do in order to become a Stunt Performer or Stunt Actor.  Compared to today, information on the internet was very scarce. Nowadays, we have the possibility to learn any skill you desire through the internet, but many people still lack the necessary skills in order to perform certain tasks. 

With Stunt Fighting For Professional Actors we take it beyond the basic skills and will give you the necessary support, guidance and confidence for when you perform your first fight scene on set.  What we teach includes over 25 years of experience in one course. How do you make a punch look powerful? How do you keep yourself and your partner safe when performing? How do you perform a fight scene and don't lose focus on your character part?  How do you adjust your spacing, rhythm and timing to suit the scene? How do you show professionalism on set and get asked to work on the next job?  It is not just about the physicality but also about how you conduct yourself on set.

What makes Stunt Fight School Stand out?

The problem with most Stunt Fighting Schools is that they focus too much on fighting skills that look real. What they seem to forget is that in order to make moves look real you have to perform them in an unreal fashion.

There are many ways to throw a punch and usually it's the one that feels unnatural that works the best for camera. It is important to adjust your moves to the eye of the camera and not look at Stunt Fighting as a particular style of fighting but look at Stunt Fighting as MOVEMENT which needs to be adapted to suit the eye of the camera.

Many great performers don't just see themselves as Stunt Fighters but see themselves as FILMMAKERS who happen to know Stunt Fighting. Changing your perspective and thinking in a VERTICAL manner will excel your path the becoming a great on-screen performer.

"Philippe’s dedication to his craft and the film industry, paired with his endless patience, professionalism and experience, makes him an incredible stunt teacher and coach for any actor looking to improve and expand their action skillset. Philippe not only helps you improve your fight skills and technique but all aspects of your stunt work including character movement, timing, reaction, cheating to camera.. the list goes on! Philippe always makes training fun and exciting and moves through at a steady pace, allowing you pick up the movements and choreography with ease, producing an amazing end result! If you are someone hoping to break into the action movie scene but you’re not sure where to start, do this course and you’ll be kicking butt in no time!"

Chantal Elyse
Actor

"Working with Philippe was always so much fun! He broke down stunt movements so they were easy to pick up. At first I was scared and would psych myself out of doing the even the simplest of moves..but because his directions were clear, I was able to do perform the fights necessary! This made filming so much more exciting! I got to front flip into the water, fight with katana sticks and best of all I felt like Jackie Chan."

Stephanie Kutty
Actor
