Actor to Operator Training School

How can an actor be expected to perform as an operator without thinking and moving like one?

How can an actor project authenticity in their on-screen character, to the point where the audience/viewers, believe the character’s on-screen role?

How can an actor increase his/her “range?” (variety, adaptability, versatility).

This 5-day training school has been designed to transform actors into operators, in order to achieve exactly that.

5 days of safe, controlled and immersive tactical firearms training, including progressive and structured live firing exercises, in a street-scene environment, will allow you to think and move like an operator, on-screen.

Continued professional development for the acting industry, doesn’t get anymore realistic than this…

course description

Be in no doubt, the learning curve, throughout this five-day training school, is steep. Our aim is to turn you into tactically minded operators, allowing you to perform authentically, that will make the viewer/audience believe in your character’s role.

We will completely change your mindset towards the tactical use of firearms for on-screen use and, through this approach, you will find yourself establishing a relationship with your weapon systems, that you would never have thought possible to have, with a piece of metal.

Every day, you will see your self-confidence grow to unrecognizable levels.

You will dry-drill the tactical mechanics and tradecraft over and over again – repetitive training is crucial in establishing that all-important and automatic “reaction” to a situation.

We will take you through a variety of tactical firearms tradecraft and mechanics, response “options” that will instill, in you, the operator mindset.

We will push you to step out your comfort zone. We will build your confidence. We will all instill, in you, a passion and respect for the safe use of firearms.

We will dispel the many myths regarding regarding being in a gunfight and will teach you the ugly, hard realities instead.

Everything we teach on this course has been conducted operationally and has been proven to WORK…and we will spend lots of time explaining to you WHY it works, based on our instructors experience and background, in order that your on-screen character, is as authentic and believable, as possible.
