Stunt Performer

Odds of Getting In

There's always room for more crazies in the picture business. If you're willing to throw your body about like a rag doll, chances are someone's going to be interested. But just know that it's going to take a lot of hustle on your part. You may get beat down a lot, and not just by 2 x 4s.

The crazier you are, the more success you are likely to have. Not every stunt performer is willing to do everything. If you are the one guy a producer can find who is willing to wrestle a Bengal tiger while jumping out of an airplane 500 feet over shark-infested waters, that gig will be all you.
