Have you ever wondered how to become a stuntman? Or how an action scene is put together? Well puzzle no more because the latest moviemaking how-to guide by Ryan Connolly provides all the answers.
On the latest Film Riot video Connolly interviews Josh Tessier, who’s worked on films such as 300: Rise of an Empire and Argo, to get the inside skinny on what it takes to get started in the business (hanging out at drugs parties with Chuck Norris’ son), the way to construct a fight sequence, and how a stunt coordinator works with a director.
But Tessier’s number one piece of advice? “Don’t be an asshole.”
Words to live by.
