If you are serious about being an Action Extra, we highly recommend starting out with our Action Training two day workshops, as this lays down the basic fundamentals for any extra stepping onto a film set for Action work. These courses cover body movement and awareness, kicks, punches and their relation to the camera, basic stunt department etiquette and weaponry, health and safety. Please note that these Workshops do not qualify you as a ‘stunt performer’, however you will be provided with a certificate stating you have trained with the School as an ‘Action Extra.’
