2013 WILL BE BIGGER & BETTER!
The International Stunt School continues to be the premiere stunt training facility worldwide! We continue to create new venues and improve upon those areas of expertise that make up the quality training that is the benchmark for our school in the industry. We remain the only stunt school that is "licensed and registered" as a professional vocational facility in North America. Over the years we have created a "team philosophy" in our approach to developing stunt performers who continue to work all over the world both in film and live stunt shows. It is now estimated that we have more than 200 stunt performers working in the industry! Our students are entering the stunt arena at a pace far beyond our prior years and far beyond the competition.
We have often encouraged prospective students to "read between the lines" when making a decision regarding where they intend to pursue their stunt training. Some questionable examples that require scrutiny can be found on other websites. For instance, you will find a stunt school claiming professionalism and yet the founder of the school has never coordinated a stunt on a professional film set? Another school overwhelmingly exaggerates how many students they have trained over the years while suggesting at the same time it will only cost you $10,500.00 to train with them for 4 weeks in only 6 disciplines?! And yet another school claims to teach you 13 disciplines in just one week for $2000.00 with one instructor? (we have 12). It is important to note that none of the aforementioned schools offer precision driving or aerial wire work which are two of the mainstays in the stunt profession today! Again...we urge you to read between the lines when selecting a school. Training is expensive and making poor choices can be devastating. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
Lastly, keep in mind that the trainings we offer in totality are comparable to a full semester in a public university both in the number of hours we provide and the varied disciplines that make up our curriculum. It costs on average $11000.00 per semester to attend a public university in the U.S. with no guarantees after graduation. It will cost $6,100.00 to take both of the courses we offer as the premiere stunt school in the industry. The chances are far greater that you will find a place in the film industry upon graduation....especially with the present economic environment. And this can be accomplished via 4 weeks of professional training as opposed to 4 years in university. Something to think about!
