I’m no warrior, I’m like the bird that floats above the battlefield watching every sword swipe with intent and interest, the squire sharpening the sword, prepping and polishing the armour with the excitement of a school child. The desk-bound agency ninja, picking up the phone to productions and stunt co-ordinators faster than a Bruce Lee round-house kick, that’s me!
I liaise with dozens of productions, casting agents and stunt co-ordinators on a weekly basis to cast and ensure the perfect performance is achieved on set by our performers. Why? Simply because the British Action Academy provides the highest level of screen combat performance in the industry and this is a reputation every BAA performer must uphold.
This is an accolade we have been very proud of, with hundreds of incredible students on our agency books, and growing demand for performers trained in our industry recognised courses, we felt it was time to open up the agency to a fresh group of performers with that ‘can do’ attitude once more.
So Agency Day was created! And boy was it great!
