Martial Artists, join the world of film making!

martial-artists-needed-for-filmsOpportunities are available  for Martial Artists of all ages in stunts and fight scenes. The Indie Gathering International Film Festival and Convention has a fight scene competition open  to all Martial Art students of all  ranks. The competition is a maximum of two minutes per competitor, with dialogue and techniques  done in regular street clothes, just as you would see in a movie. Competitors are judged by film producers and directors from around the world, and the audience is made up of film professionals. Competitors receive a weekend pass to the entire festival.

Any instructor having three or more students competing will receive a VIP weekend pass to all events. We will also network you to all the producers and directors that are present. Competitor and instructor VIP passes include a lifetime membership in World Stunt Association. Instructors, learn how to manage your students for 20%. For example, one of my students (green belt) worked on “Proximity” for HBO and stunt doubled for Rob Lowe. He worked 6 days for $10,000, and I received $2,000 as his manager.

Come and let us introduce you to the film world. See what possibilities there are for you and your students . The event is just outside of Cleveland, Ohio on Aug. 27, 28. 29 & 30.
