Last weekend (24-26th Feb 2017) we delivered our first course for Nu Boyana Film Studios with the first ten actors qualifying as “Special Actors & Extras” who are now eligable for “Special Roles” (and higher pay!) in upcoming major Hollywood action movies!
The actors ranged in age from 19-40, both male and female and came from as far as the UK and Germany to attend.
The three day course was focused on developing new military skills and tactics relevant for the movie industry. This included heavy emphasis on SAFE weapon handeling with live weapons and ammunition – effectivly over training the actors – with over 200 rounds fired per student on multiple weapon systems that included AK47/74, M4, Glock, Pump action shotgun, revolvers and more!
Other skills taught included patrol techniques, prisoner handeling and body searches as well as many “Real World Skills” that are applicable in todays society. This included an introduction to massive medical trauma and armed and unarmed combat; both skills that could save a life or prevent a physical assault on the students.
The final exercise consisted of a scenario where the Plovdiv Liveration Front (PLF – A dark, right wing criminal/political group we made up for the perposes!) took power in Plovdiv over night and after a “rude awekening”, the students had to defend the Training Centre from the threat!
Everyone survived and ther PLF surrendered!
Nu Boyana Film Studios also sent a camera crew to cover the first course and we look forward to sharing the video once it’s complete!
Our three instructors (all BG and UK Ex-military) were delighted with the effort and ethusiasm of the students who have given (so far) 95% positive feedback on their experience!
Thansk to the first students for making this first course epic and we look forward to the next course on the 7th – 9th April 2017.
