Classes, Workshops & Training

We have classes available for most age groups, interests and skillsets. If just you're starting out, already an existing stunt performer or if you're looking to take on a new physical challenge, you'll be sure to find something at the NZ Stunt School.

 

If you're serious about getting into the stunt industry, we highly recommend starting out with the "Fight For Camera" workshop as this lays down the basic foundation for any stunt performer. Once you complete the Fight workshop, you're then able to attend our stunt training days with existing students where we really start to have fun and sharpen those skills.

Fight For Camera

$650 (New) $200 (Returning)

Our next Fight for camera workshop will be held in January 2019 due to instructors being on a Feature film in Europe for the rest of the year

This 2-day class focusses on the "bread-and-butter" punches and kicks that all stunt performers need to know. More importantly, how to sell them for camera. We'll cover choreographing your own background fight (armed/unarmed), doubling a lead, camera angles and fighting as your own character.

 

Each course covers an introduction to stunts, terminology, set etiquette and where to go from here in order to get you started on your career in stunts.

This 1 day (12pm - 6pm) Course is for individuals wanting to pursue a career in stunts or for those actors wanting to increase their physical performance skills.

 

Air Rams involve the use of a pneumatic catapult which launches the stunt performer through the air. Either to mimic superhuman jumping/flying abilities or the effects of an explosion catapulting a stunt performer through the air.

Fire Burns

$300 - $850

We offer two workshops: Partial and Full Body Fire Burn*.

 

Each workshop is a single full intensive day, and designed for stunties looking to upskill, updating showreels or even if you just want to come along and experience a fire burn for the first time in a safe and professional environment.

 

All students will not only learn how to safely perform a burn, but also assist in all safety procedures surrounding the event.

 

(*The Partial Fire Burn workshop is a prerequisite for any student wanting to attend a Full Body Fire Burn workshop)

High Falls

$650

High falls, once you get past your fear of heights, may seem simple enough, but do require a great deal of respect, precision and technique to ensure a safe landing and have the action sell for camera. In this workshop you will work on the necessary confidence, skills and knowledge to execute safe and accurate high falls for camera.

 

We start off slowly and work our way up the heights. There is no rush to jump ahead. At no point do we sacrifice technique for simply getting you falling from a higher point.

 

Whether you're a beginner, looking to learn a new technique or sharpen your high fall skills, this workshop is for you!

Film Archery

Archery is a speciality skill and has been featured in many feature films and TV series' over the years.

 

This full half day session film archery workshop will start at the basics before moving onto film specific archery techniques.

 

We will also be hosting Archery Training Days for those Archery satudents keen to continue their training.
