READY, STEADY, ACTION!
Cassie Repton reports from Australia.
It was seven o`clock in the morning and I was ready for my frist
lesson of the Stunt Artists Course at the Australian Action Academy. We were in the middle of a forest near the east coast of Australia and I was getting ready to leap from the top af a high tower. I had never felt more nervous.
My tutor on the `Jump` course was the actor and stuntman,
Chris Handley. Chris is the directorof the Academy and runs it with six other specialist tutors. He charges about $1.500 for a 60-hour course. Darko Tuskan, a martial arts expert, teaches students how to fight and how to fall safely.
Fire stunts are another important part of the course. Fire tutor,
Stuart Campbell, has ridden a burning motorbike through ten firefals and has flown a hang glider with both his body and the glider in fire. `The most important part is to learn how to set yourself on fire and then put out the flames,` said Stuart. `Of course, you have to wear protective fireproof clothes and put special gel on your skin. There is also a water hose close by.`
`Stunt work can be risky,` says Chris. `People sometimes get
burns and bruises and broken bones, but if it wasn`t risky at all, people wouldn`t come on the course.` He says that the most difficult stunts are jumps.
`High falls are the most dangerous. If you make a mistake, you`ll hurt yourself.`
Now why didn`t he say that earlier? There was no escape now.
Chris told me to get ready to jump. Itook a deep breath, crossed my fingers and threw myself into space.
