Stunt Performers, Stunt Coordinators and Stage Combat Instructors.
‘Master At Arms’ are industry specialists in stunt coordination and stunt performance for stage and film. We work throughout the UK and Internationally.
Our practitioners work with leading theatres and production companies to deliver scenes and sequences of violence and action that keep actors and performers as safe as possible whilst serving the artistic vision to the highest standards.
In a constantly developing industry, all of our practitioners have successfully passed the ‘APA COVID-19 Shooting Guidelines Assessment Test’ – ensuring they stay in the know and up to speed with the industry demands and suggestions relating to the 2020 pandemic. More information can be found here.
Master At Arms’ offers a wide range of services; alongside choreographing and co-ordinating violence and action for stage and screen, we also teach across many platforms and institutes.
Master At Arms’ was founded on the principles of recognising individual standards of professionalism and excellence. Its founding members sought each other out on the foundation of respect and recognition of the array of experience individually forged over many years in the theatre, film & television industry.
Our aim: to establish a group of like-minded, respectable, industry professionals – encouraging both the individual and the organisation to flourish whilst focusing on the ever growing practice of 21st Century Stage Combat performance.
You can find out more about the practitioners which make up ‘Master At Arms’ on our Practitioners page, along with individual contact details.
Academy, Society, Guild? We looked to history for inspiration, traditionally the Master-at-Arms was ‘the officer in charge of physical training.’
