STUNTPOC’s BOARD MEMBERS
Stunt POC is a website database listing Stunt Performers of Color in Film and Television throughout the Unites States and Canada. We are not a talent agency. All of our ethnic stunt performers are active SAG-AFTRA and/or ACTRA union members in the Film and Television industry. All of our member stunt pages include their stunt resume and pictures, their email address, their IMDb page, and most have stunt reels and more for all casting needs.
There are 3 stunt package categories that we offer:
ROOKIE – Must have 3 Stunt Contract credits in a union Film and/or Television project but no more than 9 stunt credits. (The stunt credits MUST be from different projects. Not the same show. StuntPOC make exceptions to performers who have less that 3 credits IF they are doubling a LEAD on a TV series ( in at last half the # of episodes in that TV series ) or a Lead in a Feature Film where you are on set, performing stunts for at least half of filming time . Shorts, Live Shows, Commercials and Student Films DO NOT count toward the stunt credits needed. This stunt package can be upgraded to PRO as soon as your 10 credits are achieved. ($9.99/monthly). You can cancel your membership anytime by hitting the CANCEL button on your member dashboard and your profile will be deleted. However, you will not be refunded during your active membership month.
