Doing stunt work on films seems like a lot of fun, right? You get to jump around, and fall down, get set on fire, or whatever else it takes to get the job done. Like everything else in the film world, though, it's a ton more work than anyone thinks. In fact, it starts years before you even want to get on your first film and throw yourself down some stairs.
Our latest guest, Elizabeth Davidovich, has done stunt work for productions like Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Fast & Furious 7. She came on to tell us just how much work goes into stunts and why it takes a specific type of personality to do this kind of job. She also tells future stunt pros exactly what they need to focus on if they plan on ever breaking in.
