Casting Directors to Visit Stunt School again in 2017

Once again students can look forward to having casting representatives from live stunt shows check out their work at our school this year. Casting directors for Marvel Universe Live! as well as Mirage Entertainment and Universal Studios will be seeking out possible performers for their live shows. Many of our graduates have been hired by these companies as our training produces the caliber of individuals with the top-notch stunt skills that they require. Live stunt shows are a great stepping stone into the industry and getting a job offer right out of our school is an incredible opportunity. Don't miss your chance to show your stuff and possibly land your first stunt job!

Check out what our graduates have just shared with us in January:

"This school was so worth the time and investment! Highly recommend it to anyone! . . . Within a month of being back from school and learning from all the wonderful instructors at ISS I landed a speaking stunt role on Jack Reacher 2." -Ashley Wilks

"I've been training and doing stunt gigs since I attended the ISS last summer. I will be returning to do the week of aerial intensive training this summer. I learned a lot and the value of this training has been reflected in the work I have done so far. Best decision I've ever made." -Drew Vincent

"It's the best way to get into the stunt industry." -Mark Rosenthal

.....Thanks to all our gradutes for making us proud!
