About Us We love movies. We live action.

"Why grow up when you can make movies" 

Quote from Dar Robinson - Hollywood Stuntman (1947-1986) 

We are passionate about action. This is not just work. It's a way of life.

The heart of the academy was born from the passion and experience of some of the UK's leading British JISC/BSR Registered Stunt co-ordinators, who believe in a simple ethos; to pass their knowledge on to the next generation. 

Since the beginnings of the silver screen, action has played a major part in the success of some of the most memorable movies of all time. From screen legends such as Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd through to Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, every generation of performer has pushed the limits of their physical abilities to thrill and entertain movie lovers across the globe.

Our industry recognised screen action courses are setting new standards in the industry for performance and safety and we are extremely proud of all our students who have gone on to fulfil their goals as performers on some of the biggest blockbusters of all time. 

Our action agency specialises in providing trained action performers for productions worldwide.

Andreas.

Without revealing his true age, Andreas’ experience as a Professional Registered Stunt Co-ordinator and Performer is practically biblical. He has been a member of the British Stunt Register for 28 years and sat on the committee on and off for over 17 years.  He has been inducted into the Hollywood Stunt Performers Hall of Fame due to his outstanding achievements in motion pictures.

Andreas founded the Academy in 2009. His teaching style as Chief Instructor has often been compared to being on a campaign with Attila the Hun. Highly rewarding if a tad sweaty. 

Armed with a credit list longer than the Amazon river and more combat trousers than Rambo, his talent and passion for action keeps him up to all sorts of mischief.

In his time off, oh wait. He doesn't have time off. "Ain't got time to bleeeeeed"

Cayte. 

With more experience in media than Donald Trump has in fake news, Cayte runs the operations of the BAA as Managing Director with the pinpoint accuracy any self-respecting ninja assassin would be jealous of. 

Having worked for some of the worlds leading production and publishing companies, Cayte brings 20 years of media experience to the BAA and thrives on turning the impossible into the possible. 

She believes in the 10,000 hours concept and thinks everyone should know 'The Secret'. 

As a huge Prince fan, Cayte spends what's left of her spare time playing her collection of guitars and trying to sing as high as The Purple One, but failing miserably. 

Jo.

Jo is our awesome Office Manager and all-round female powerhouse. She really is our very own Wonder Woman. 

She holds our busy team together and ensures we're all working to our own unique superhuman strengths.

As a trained Pilates teacher, reiki healer, ex England basketball player and a super mum to her gorgeous daughter, Jo can handle just about anything the Gods throw at her. 

Armed with her projectile tiara and laser-like focus, if she's not whipping up a storm at her desk, she's de-stressing and focusing the team in our local field with her awesome pilates powers.    

Dan.

Dan started at the Academy as an apprentice and is now a multi-tasking design and admin guru. He is the Gorilla glue that holds us all together. 

Dan loves nothing more than talking to all our amazing students, helping them on their journey to becoming the best performers they can be and helping to create and develop our brand image. 

He is quite possibly the coolest (and nicest) nerd we know. With his encyclopaedic knowledge of everything Doctor Who to his insatiable wardrobe of Christmas jumpers - which he would wear all year if he could, if you need anything doing, as long as he's armed with a strong black coffee and some 80's music playing - Dan is your man.

Sam.

Sam is our marketing content warrior. With a huge passion for writing, he will always be fresh on the trail of a good story along with getting to know our students for inspiration, articles and social content.

He is also our very own human version of IMDB! Seriously, when he’s in the office there’s no need for us to use the App!

With a degree in Film Studies, Sam spends more time at the cinema than Mark Kermode and can pretty much nail reviews to match.
