The   safe   and   effective   handling   of   firearms   is   now   considered   an   essential   skill   for   any   actor   combat   combatant or   stunt   professional.      With   the   introduction   of   the   Firearms   (Amendment)   Act   1997,   it   has   been   difficult   for performers   to   gain   access   to   the   training   which   would   allow   them   to   portray   the   handling   of   a   firearm   accurately for the stage and screen.
This course covers: UK Firearms Law. Firearms used on stage and screen. Revision of basic operation and handling. Grips, stances and firing positions. Close quarter combat techniques (Gun-Fu). Taking hits and falls. Please note: This course is not a basic handling course, all attendees must have an understanding of basic handling to attend this course.  Previous experience of stage or screen combat would also be advantageous.  The minimum age to attend this course is 18+ years.
Filmic Firearms Course: Have you ever fired two pistols while diving through the air, rolled across the floor with gun blazing, made tactical disarms while point-blank shooting or taken out multiple opponents with gun-fu?  All these techniques would never be taught on a firing range, but are regularly used in modern films such as the ‘John Wick’ film series. Our Filmic Firearms Course has been designed to teach fantasy style firearms combat techniques in a safe and controlled environment using a range of theatrical prop and gas-powered firearms.
