With this 2-week Industry Grade Stunt Workshop, we present you with one of the most versatile and intensive stunt workshops in Europe.

With our history and reputation as being one of the primary stunt institutions to receive first class training, attended by hundreds of participants through the years, and with some of the best instructors and industry professionals supervising the programme, we can guarantee you, that you will not be able to find any workshop like ours.

We will cover and go into depth with everything from fighting, camera work, acrobatics and aerial work to advanced SWAT training, LIVE firing range, high falls, burns and precision driving. It’s 14 days of non-stop action!

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as experienced performers, so if you want to learn new skills or brush up your old tricks in great company and at the same time expand your network and maybe end up being considered for future stunt work (several of our old participants are now working together with our instructors on various projects), then this is the place to be.
