Since the early 20th century (when audiences developed a taste for serial action movies) you could say that stunts and sequences on the silver screen have come a long way and progressed massively with each blockbuster release. Now with more thrills, spills and never-before-seen footage of the unimaginable, today's top action films have warranted their success to the people behind the scenes as opposed to the other way round.
From a two story leap onto a pile of cardboard boxes, right up to a 30,000 foot sky dive on a motorbike landing on rough, mountain terrain, it’s a stuntman’s job to coordinate, plan and execute a scene to perfection without risk of losing their life.
So when LA Muscle TV caught up with one of the world’s top action stunt groups, 3RUN, and asked them exactly how they do it, the answer wasn’t as simple as we’d hoped!
It’s quite clear this doesn’t happen overnight for such a talented group. It takes dedication, power of the mind, consistency and a thirst for success, and DAMMIT do these guys have it.
With days (sometimes weeks) of planning, 3RUN have successfully doubled up as stunt men for feature film Casino Royale, shot commercials abroad, worked with Television clients including MTV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and NBC as well as appearing in various top music videos and concerts around the world.
“3RUN is the art of freedom, open to everyone who is like-minded in searching to push their physical, philosophical, and spiritual boundaries in Parkour, Freerunning, Stunts and Acrobatics. It is also a community designed so that those same people can meet, share and learn. We have brought together a group of talented, enthusiastic and dedicated individuals based around one ideal: The Freedom of Movement”
Easy to see why their schedule is full to the brim if they all have the same take on life!
