Recent Comment From A Casting Director

We were pleased to receive this from Brad Irish, the casting director for Six Flags America:

"Thanks to you and your stunt school we now have some of the best up and coming stunt performers in the biz!"

Many of our graduates have gone to work at various Six Flags stunt shows, and in yet another great casting opportunity, Mr. Irish will also be joining us as a visiting casting director at the Utility Stunt Course in August to look for more potential stunt performers. This year's class will have an unprecedented chance to get hired right out of our school.

Recent Comments From Our Graduates

Check out what our graduates have just shared with us in January:

"This school was so worth the time and investment! Highly recommend it to anyone! . . . Within a month of being back from school and learning from all the wonderful instructors at ISS I landed a speaking stunt role on Jack Reacher 2." -Ashley Wilks

"I've been training and doing stunt gigs since I attended the ISS last summer. I will be returning to do the week of aerial intensive training this summer. I learned a lot and the value of this training has been reflected in the work I have done so far. Best decision I've ever made." -Drew Vincent

"It's the best way to get into the stunt industry." -Mark Rosenthal

.....Thanks to all our gradutes for making us proud!

Casting Directors to Visit Stunt School in 2016

Students can look forward to having casting representatives from live stunt shows check out their work at school this year. As with last year, the casting director for Marvel Universe Live! will be seeking out possible performers for their touring show, which requires talented individuals with top-notch stunt skills. They recognize the International Stunt School as an excellent source of such training. Don't miss your chance to show your stuff and possibly land your first stunt job! Live stunt shows, produced by companies such as Disney, Universal Studios, Mirage Entertainment, and Six Flags, are a great stepping stone into the industry and getting a job offer right out of our school is an incredible opportunity. Visit and for more information about the show.

Students Hired Right After 2015 Session

Congratulations to our recent students now living the dream as stunt performers. Two graduates were hired right away for the Marvel Universe Live! touring stunt show; one was offered the job before he had even left our school! (This same show already has two of our previous graduates performing in it.) Another student flew home and went right to work on the SyFy Channel's series Z-Nation. The International Stunt School focuses on making you as ready as possible to be hired and as such it continues to be the best program to get you started in the industry.
