Hey There Actionites -
If you have been following ActionFest for any amount of time, you know that we are big fans of the stunt community. We’ve done interviews with Stunt Legends like Tom Elliott and Jack Gill. And we’ve promoted their causes. In fact, one of the main purposes for the existence of ActionFest is to bring attention to the unsung heroes of action films.
Well, Jack Gill, ActionFest 2012′s recipient of the Man Of Action Award is the official spokesperson for getting an Academy Award given to stunt people. Did you know that Stunt Coordinators have NO category at the Oscars?
Below, you can hear an awesome interview with Man of Action Jack Gill as he talks with CBC Radio’s Q Podcast. I recommend the listen, Jack is the first guest on the show and he makes a really strong case for Academy recognition! It is a great interview and action fans all over the world should get behind Jack and support his mission.
And I’m Out.
