Never a dull moment when you mix martial arts stunt training with visual special FX! That’s the core lesson featured in this small IMX featurette. On Sunday May 2nd 2010 following instructor training at NX Martial Arts, Hardcore Ottawa Stuntman André Givogue and myself (Robert Baldwin) decided to work on different stunt moves …just for fun! 🙂
Jumping off a 15 foot tower of mats and filming it was the first step. For our special effects, we chose a brilliant set of pre-keyed explosions from the Action Essentials II from VideoCopilot.net. Add some minor color adjustments and some camera shake and you’ve got a stunt shot worthy of hollywood action movies!
