ALL ACTION ACADEMY
Welcome to our Movieworks International - ALL ACTION ACADEMY stunt school page.
Alongside our huge amount of film and TV productions and training our team. Over the last few years, we have provided training days specific to production preparations, day and weekend courses for actors that want to understand more about the craft of action in film and TV.
Who are these courses aimed at?
Everyone that is involved in the safety and action aspects on set.
For those that want to join the growing numbers of people in the industry that want to be in low level action scenes, background fights etc. At level 3, we can put you on file to be considered for work as a SPACT

With the world of stunts opening up to more groups and associations. We get more and more people wanting a fuller stunt training experience or only a part that they want more training in. Our only full training is constant training. Like anything you want to be good at. If you did it for a week/month/year and done nothing since, you risk skillfade. If you did a martial art one month a year, or played a musical instrument a few weeks a year, you wouldn't be as good as you could be, so we believe in continual professional development courses that include basics to advanced in FIGHTS, FALLS, REACTIONS, FIRE, WIRE and VEHICLES
Among the courses we have provided for actors, acting schools etc, we have also done sessions for directors/dop's that may have a wonderful background in stunning cinematography, but have never shot action scenes before and would like guidance and training to get the best out of their action in front of camera, as well as understand the safety and training aspects needed surrounding the action, to know how valuable a good co-ordinator and team are when it comes to decisions that will keep everyone safe.
Bring your artistic vision to life. Right from stunt breakdown, risk assessment, to training, choreography and implementing safe but powerful scenes to MAXIMISE YOUR ACTION !
We specifically aim our courses at screen based training, rather than stage, to incorporate understanding of all the things a stunt co-ordinator and the performers use to implement all your action, including:
Script action breakdown,
Action direction/ behind camera advice from action perspective,
Action casting help,
Stunt & fight team members,
everything from safety right up to the performance so that its safe, effective and works well on camera.
