Check out what our Stunt Academy graduates shared with us on TripAdvisor after the September 2016 Professional Stunt Course:

“Best Experience ever!”

I recently did my 2nd course at the academy (2 week professional) & it was absolutely the best thing I’ve ever done! I learnt so much in those 2 weeks, valuable education for someone like myself who is keen to work in the stunt industry. In addition to the extensive training, I met an awesome bunch of like-minded people from all over the world, all walks of life, between 15 & 50 years old, who will all be mates for life after sharing such a life-changing experience. Colin & his instructors are of world-class standards & I highly recommend the Australian Stunt Academy for anyone looking to further their skills or try something new & exhilarating.

“Life time experience”

Just graduated the 2 week course and absolutely loved it. Was jam-packed full of thrills and action. Was so much fun and a life time experience. Met some friends for life. Working alongside of Colin and Tim was a privilege. Very professional with lots of great knowledge they passed on about the stunt industry. What an eye opener.”“Just graduated the 2 week course and absolutely loved it. Was jam-packed full of thrills and action. Was so much fun and a life time experience. Met some friends for life.

How Much Do Stunt Performers Get Paid?

Earnings for a stunt performer vary depending on their experience level, the negotiated contract, and the type of media production they work on. According to the Government of Western Australia’s, Department of Training and Workforce Development’s, Career Centre a stunt performer’s earning potential increases as their skills and reputation develop. High quality stuntman training courses and demonstrable experience are the keys to finding regular work.

Minimum Pay Rates

The Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), the union for performers in the United States sets the minimum pay rates for work done by stunt performers/doubles and coordinators.

The daily minimum rate is US$933 and the weekly rate US$3,479. Stunt performers also get a stunt adjustment on top of that rate if they are doing a dangerous stunt. The stunt adjustment is based on the difficulty of the stunt they perform. For example, this amount ranges from a few hundred for a basic fall up to several thousand for a car cannon roll. In addition, the amount of experience or expertise the performer has is an important factor. If the performer is the only one who is capable of doing the stunt then they will command a higher pay rate.

In Australia, the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) set the minimum wage rates for stunt performers.

Hours and Working Conditions

Entertainment productions have no set hours of operation. Stunt performers must be willing to work from pre-dawn until nighttime to create the perfect shot or scene. Most importantly, stunt performers are required to work in all types of weather conditions.
