My name is Rustic Bodomov and I'm a Hollywood Stuntman. I make filmmaking tutorials for people who want to do action scenes, and one of them was on the front page today! AMA!
A couple of you suggested that I do an AMA, so here it is! I will answer as many questions as I can, honestly, in the next couple of hours, then I will log back in later tonight/tomorrow and answer the rest!
After seeing the lack of resources available on YouTube for indie filmmakers, I started making Action Filmmaking tutorials from a stuntman's perspective, to give back to the community that helped me become a stuntman! My goal is to help people do action SAFELY and make it LOOK GOOD. Here's the playlist so far: http://bit.ly/2mVA7CM
My short bio: Born in Russia, grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, went to college in Scotland. Moved to Los Angeles 6 years ago to become a professional stuntman, after I got interested in action filmmaking through my youtube channel and an online forum that existed back then called "The Stunt People".
On the days that I'm working, I do fight scenes, wrecks, wire work, parkour, and any number of other stunts that a production would need. I double actors (most recent one was Scott Adkins) and play bad guys all the time. (You've probably seen me die on screen.)
On my days off, I'm working at building a resource for indie filmmakers through my youtube channel, as well as training several different methods of fitness and martial arts.
