A STUNT PLAYER is a man or woman who performs dangerous stunts, often as a career. These stunts sometimes rigged so that they look dangerous while still having safety mechanisms, but often they are as dangerous as they appear to be, an inherent risk in the performance of all stunt work in film, television and stage work.
Daredevil performers are distinct from stunt performers along with stunt doubles; they perform their stunts purely for the sake of it. The stunt often performs before an audience for their entertainment and personal monetary gain for that event. While a stunt performer, or stunt double typically performs stunts intended for use in a motion pictures or dramatized television. Here are just few of the great Stunt players in the industry today; Harry Houdini, Jackie Chan, Tony Jaa, Michael S. Walter, Zoë Bell, Melissa R. Stubbs, and Jeannie Epper. Stunt Players and Stunt Doubles are generally skilled at performing physical action in a character for film and television.
Usually an experienced stunt performer, is hired by a TV, film or theatre director or production company to arrange the casting and performance of stunts for a film, tape, or a live audience. In many cases, the stunt coordinator budgets, designs and choreographs the stunt sequence to suit the script and the director's vision.
