Who says stunt work in films and television is predominantly a man’s world? Not the folks at Women in Film and TV Nsw, who are keen to blow up that idea by staging a female-led stunts and film workshop in Sydney next month.
The key presenters are stunt performer, first Ad and production manager Jackie Murray, who is a gymnastics and martial arts expert, and action director Maria Tran, who had a stunt attachment on Jackie Chan’s Bleeding Steel.
