We're not your average agent. We do things differently.
We are the only casting agent of it's kind in the UK, where we train and represent our own action performers. We have trained every single one of our students over as long a period as 1-3 years.
During their training with us, we get to know our performers on a personal level and have an innate understanding of their abilities.
What sets the BAA apart from other supporting artist agencies is that we only represent our students. We pride ourselves in keeping a niche database of trained performers. Each performer is trained through us in the essential skills needed to perform on set.
We supply BSR Registered Stunt Co-ordinators, Performers and trained Skilled Supporting Artists (SSA's) for all aspects of action including screen combat, stunts and specialist action.
Skilled Supporting Artists
Due to the phenomenal success of our industry recognised Warrior Masterclass screen combat course, the demand for Warrior trained SSA’s for background combat roles is increasing exponentially. Our SSA's possess training in screen combat, set etiquette, acting and working to camera and can offer productions the guarantee of being a confident, safe, reliable all round background performer.
Our Warrior SSA’s are the most sought-after supporting artists in the industry, having been requested by production companies and stunt co-ordinators on many major Productions such as:
When undertaking your first Special Action jobs on a professional set, you know you are in the best hands with British Action Academy.
Not only are they helpful, supportive and professional as an agency, the feeling of being able to directly apply skills learnt on the courses - camera awareness, knowing how to perform with energy and diligence and the ability to be prepared for anything - is extremely rewarding.
Plus having the opportunity to observe how the stunts are set up and carried out is absolutely invaluable. Thanks, BAA!
The unsung heroes of the BAA agency team are some of the most professional, passionate and dedicated individuals I have had the pleasure of working with in the entertainment industry. No inquiry is too small and no request goes ignored.
Friendly and courteous, they're always willing to help.
The instructors and advanced graduates that assist on the WMC courses are superb. Incredibly knowledgeable, supremely patient and at the top of their game. It is a privilege to receive their instruction, time and effort.
