Stunt Men and Actors
This particular interview is with Brenden Potter and Mitchell Mack. This is one of many in a series of interviews at the 2011 Indie Gathering. It is an annual international event usually held at the Westlake Holiday Inn in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This was the event’s fifteenth year.
Brenden and Mitchell are actors and stunt men. They were part of the stunt demonstration team at this year’s event. After I saw the demonstration, it was a no brainer that they should be interviewed. Listen in as they discuss safety, “taking a hit” and how learning stunts benefits them as actors.
The “Gathering” is a must attend for anyone in the independent film industry. Whether you score movies, act, edit, direct, do make-up, costume or special effects, this is an event that you should mark on your calendar each and every year. The event features many, many screenings in three simultaneously running screening rooms, many seminars and demonstrations for all who attend and contests for those who enter. You can find out more about this event over at theindiegathering.com.
