1. More productions are looking at firearms experience when casting Skilled Supporting Artists!
When dealing with Casting Calls, a lot of productions will now specify that they are looking for someone with firearms experience. This is where Gun Rush comes in handy, its an industry recognised course, that tells stunt coordinators that they can trust you to be able to handle a weapon when they hire you.
“As a Stunt Co-ordinator and Action Director, the value of having skilled supporting artists that are both trained in the use of, and experienced in the handling of guns on set, is invaluable.
Having the skill to carry & use a weapon in a professional looking manner is what it is all about.The ability to look like a trained soldier, assassin, or whatever is required, demands an understanding of how to use the guns and to be comfortable with handling them in a safe, professional manner.
For me, it is a question I always ask.What experience do they have with guns?
To look professional you have to have some form of competent, relevant training, and not everyone has been a soldier.The Gun Rush course is perfect as it allows me to employ people safe in the knowledge that they are both competent and can look the real deal.”
