Jan Bryant and Dan Speaker design and coordinate action for TV, film, stage, Internet, and video games, creating a unique look for each project. They specialize not only in training stunt people and actors including Russell Crowe, Bruce Campbell, Charlie Sheen, Viggo Mortensen, and Paul Bettany to perform fights, but also in working with directors including Steven Spielberg, Peter Weir, and Sam Raimi to make the action an integral part of the story. Kim Turney has doubled, stunt coordinated and assistant swordmastered on many film projects such as The Lady Musketeer (Hallmark), A Dead Calling, and produced and directed the Internet series – FIGHT CLASS. Jan, Dan, and Kim have an ongoing training program at their Academy of Theatrical Combat to teach anyone who is interested in combat and swordplay as an art form and have recently published their first book on the basics of theatrical combat technique. Their book Academy of Theatrical Combat Basics Level 1 is available as a paperback through Amazon.com and as an Ebook at TheatricalCombat.com.
