I’m making action filmmaking tutorials now for indie action filmmakers, martial artists, and stuntmen and stuntwomen, a series I’m calling “Indie Action Essentials”. The first skill I’m tackling is the Hong Kong spin, or the “HK”. The video includes all the steps plus what padding I recommend when doing the stunt on hard surfaces.

If you have any requests for tutorials you’d like, comment below or at the video’s YouTube page. I’m always listening!

Stunt Training – 11/22/2008 – The Stunt People from Eric Jacobus on Vimeo.

This was almost entirely springboard-based, focusing on front tucks and front suicides, as well as some front 1 3/4 rollouts and some elevated HK spins.
