Hello, we are a few stunt drivers/ stunt people with credits in The Dark Knight, Inception, and many many more. Ask us anything!
Hey everyone, Im sitting here with Jim Wilkey and Harry Wowchuck. These two gentlemen have had a life full of stunts in movies and television and they've agreed to answer some questions and tell some stories. One of the more recognizable stunts Jim has done (and the one that got the ball rolling on this ama) is the semi trailer flip in The Dark Knight. https://youtu.be/hRgq12XOhjc
Jim's IMDB http://m.imdb.com/name/nm0929197/
Harry's IMDB http://m.imdb.com/name/nm0941925/
And my name is Devin Donaghy, I'm a newbie to the stunt world currently gaining experience and working my way into the industry. You can follow my progress here https://www.instagram.com/devindonaghy/
We are currently teaching a stunt driving class so the replies will be spread throughout the day with the bulk of replies made during our lunch around 11:30 PST.
With that being said, a variety of stunt people will be dropping by to practice their driving so if they want to participate, I'll add them as they come.
Ask us anything!
Edit: Cassie Lee Minick is here now as well. A very accomplished and talented stunt woman.
Edit again! Guys, I know today has been slow with the answers. We ended up having about 14 stunt people show up for tuneups so we were all extremely busy with car maintenance and instructing. So busy that the instructors, myself included, didn't get to break for lunch. I will be back with them tomorrow and it should be much slower so I will make sure everyone gets there questions answered so that this wasn't a complete failure of an AMA
Final edit for now: Theres a lot of great questions that didn't get answered, mostly cause I could tell I was starting to annoy them with so many questions during an unusually busy weekend. But, I will still work on getting your answers anytime I see them. Thank you for participating and again, sorry it kinda ended up being a not so very active one!
