#015: Behind the Scenes with Hollywood Stuntman and 2nd Unit Director Denney Pierce


We go behind the scenes of movies like Fast & Furious 7, Venom and Mission Impossible to explain the technical aspects of how a stunt sequence is set up in a blockbuster movie. From jumping out of cars at over 25 mph, smashing into parked cars at high speeds, and crashing out of windows to hit the ground at high impact, Denny discusses the excitement of living ‘the stunt life’. He explains the stuntman hustle, how he created ‘the clothesline’ stunt, and how he exploded off an air-ramp in flames ending up in the burns center. When Denney isn’t risking his life for our cinematic enjoyment he can be found at his restaurant Quincy Street in Oxnard, California.


The video episode is available to subscribers of Greg’s Thinkspot channel.
