Stuntman - Gary Davis image

Gary Davis, stuntman, will be our guest speaker in March. Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a stuntman? What it takes to find a good one? Maybe you just need to know what exactly you are looking for to add a special piece to your current film or a future one. Is additional or special insurance needed to include a stunt person? If you have answered yes to any of these questions you will want to mark your calendars for March 29, 2017 at 7pm to help us welcome Gary Davis to the SacVIPs meeting. Davis will be here to share his experience and knowledge about being a stuntman.
