“In my career I have been apart of at least 22 workshops in Australia and overseas, so one could image how many people I have put on fire. One thing I would like say is how it was done many years ago compared to how it is done today, we have evolved with new & improved ways of doing a torch because it has to be bigger, with more colour & in todays filming environment of course it has to be safer for all involved. So with your on going training in this area, our aim is for you to have a greater understanding, knowledge regarding the set up & execution doing a partial to a full torch. Feel for yourself what it means to be truly on fire, under professional guidance and above all safely. This workshop is for stunt performers with a burning desire for an exciting new experience…”
