To All The Actionites Out There!
One of the clear highlights of ActionFest 2012 was the amazing collection of talent who came to Asheville, NC to be honored and celebrated. ActionFest gave out some fun awards to a very exciting group of talent.
Man of Action Jack Gill and Action Star Gina Carano
As Co-Founder Aaron Norris and Festival Director Colin Geddes traded off MC duties, they introduced and presented awards to action stars, stunt professionals, and producers. But before each award winner took the stage, there was a special highlight reel from their careers! These reels have some amazing content in them, from behind the scenes footage of blockbuster action films, to a couple of special introductions by action legend Chuck Norris!
Check out some of the highlights from the ceremony below, and a special thanks to Twitch for hosting these videos and to Mike Lane for creating them!
