So after a week away in the United Arab Emirates I've come back a bit browner and with a new move under my belt.
I was called out for a stunt job with a coordinator I had the opportunity to work for last year. It's always nice to be called back, especially as a relatively new member to the British Stunt Register, it feels like a good nod at the work I put in before and it feels good. A little reassurance that things are going in the right direction.
I was out there with a fellow stunty who's back ground is capoeira... so what better time to get some private tuition, pool side!
I'm not sure what the move is called, and I don't know why I've never tried it before. After a quick 2 minute tutorial and a couple attempts I've got it pretty much down. As always there are levels and degrees of control that I'll be building on to open up more options for it, as with any new movement. But for now it feels very satisfying to have a new tool to play with.
Keep on monkeying around friends!
