The Stuntman

When you see on-screen action that makes your heart stop, it usually involves a stuntman.  These hardy souls get beat up, blown up and tossed from tall buildings, usually without a scratch. Learn how stunts are created, what skills it takes to be a stuntman, and the practices that are put in place to ensure a safe film set for all involved. Kids, do NOT try this at home!
