stuntmen.

i was walking from my car to the office the other day, and while i was doing so a random question popped into my head:

what makes someone choose stuntman as a career path?

do kids in high school or college consider this? how does it start? do they want to get into acting, but then veer towards stuntman? do they start out as thrill seekers that then want to channel their thrill seeking professionally? where does the majority of the stuntman spark come from?

don't ask why that suddenly popped into my head as i was walking to the office. it was one of those things.

tag cloud:

I was actually thinking about going to stunt school. Looked a couple up last week. :) sadly i'm not quite fit enough yet but it looks very interesting.

so what does that come from? what's the motivation behind it? the physicality of it, the behind the scenes of it, the science of it... or something less tangible?

they love the physicality and the challenge of it

doing things that others can't or won't do

as a matter of routine

I totally wanted to be a stunt person as a kid. I think it came from taking big spills on the ice when I was skating or rollerblading, I always just bounced back up and kept going. I think my mom joked it'd be a good career for me and I ran with it for a year or two. But alas, I was like 7 or 8 ;) I also liked the idea of being all tough and fearless ;)

i think stuntmen are incredibly thorough and patient and cautious people
