Assassin Stunt Chase: Derek Barnes' Demo Reel

Published on Aug 1, 2012 by 
I've been serving coffee and grilled cheese on film sets in Toronto for almost five years. Last summer I got one foot in the stunt door by working as a rigger on Total Recall. After meeting some amazing performers, I decided that I needed to up my game. A lot.


Half a year of training-my-ass-off later, I was ready to begin. Rather than waiting to land enough professional gigs to fill my demo reel, I decided to be proactive. With the help of some great friends, I put this video together to showcase my new skills and hopefully entertain a few people.
