Shooting Action

  • 10:00 am - 11:30 am Saturday
  • Corey Eubanks, Stunt Coordinator/Second Unit Director
  • Corey Eubanks has worked with some of Hollywood's most talented directors, including Ron Howard, Tim Burton, Tony Scott, John Woo, and Michael Bay. Action films such as Far And Away, Mission Impossible II, Vanilla Sky, Midnight Run, Backdraft, Cobra, and Get Carter are just a fraction of his 113 filmography stunt titles.

    Discovered while training for a Golden Gloves boxing tournament in Southern California, he was cast to play the role of a young boxer in the feature film The Sting II (1983) for Universal Pictures. Intrigued by the entertainment industry, Corey spent the next four years perfecting his craft as a professional stuntman on the television show "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979). Soon Corey's talents as a stuntman were in demand, and he began working on several other action shows such as "The A-Team" (1983), "Hunter" (1967), and "The Fall Guy" (1981).

    Corey will share the secrets of shooting action sequences he has learned from over 21 years of working with these talented directors. Although their story telling styles may vary, their action methods are very similar. These "tricks" and filming concepts will be great beneficial to anyone who wants to direct action, and fun for anyone who just loves action films.
