Key Lessons

Lucy also mentions training off your own bat, investing time and money in skills like falling, fighting, wires, vehicles, and animals.

• Building Experience: Lucy highlights the need for experience and a strong showreel. Previous work is crucial for showcasing abilities to coordinators and directors. Demonstrating capabilities in different stunts and having proof of complex stunts can open doors to new opportunities.

• Persistence and Networking: Lucy stresses the importance of persistence and networking. The stunt industry can be unpredictable, with gaps between jobs, so staying committed and continuing to train is essential. Building connections, seeking recommendations, and maintaining a good reputation are key for gaining new opportunities and advancing in the industry.

Resources

• British Stunt Register: Lucy highlights the British Stunt Register as a valuable resource for aspiring stunt performers in the UK. The register offers a structured system where performers develop and are assessed on six skills, providing a clear pathway for building a foundation in stunts and advancing in the industry.
