(AUSTIN, TX)—The Austin Film Society (AFS) and Fantastic Fest present a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear from five of the most legendary stunt performers of all time on Friday, September 27th at AFS at the Marchesa (6226 Middle Fiskville Rd).
Offering stunt fans the opportunity to talk to these “Danger Gods” in person and on stage, AFS and Fantastic Fest are inviting these greats, who are also old friends, to join us for a couple of hours of charbroiled meat, drinks, reminiscence, true stories, tall tales and life advice. Moderated by programmers the Fantastic Fest’s Zack Carlson and AFS’s Lars Nilsen, this spellbounding event is a must-see!
Our guest stuntmen include:
Actor, author, director and stunt god. His Jack Nicholson stories alone are worth the price of admission.
You may have seen him playing himself in Richard Rush’s THE STUNT MAN. His list of credits
a mile long. As a director he made THE GUMBALL RALLY and CLEOPATRA JONES AND THE CASINO
OF GOLD among others.
John “Bud” Cardos
Seemingly half the fight scenes in the sixties were doubled by the iron-headed Bud Cardos. He also directed more than his share of movies, including KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS, THE DARK and FORBIDDEN WORLD.
Grew up in the stunt industry surrounded by the great generation of stunt innovators that preceded him. A fount of stories and lore. Sargent has performed and coordinated stunts for scores of films including such favorites as SHARKY’S MACHINE and FIRST BLOOD.
Starting with THE DUKES OF HAZARD in 1985, Bob Ivy has been one of the most reliable and busy wheelmen and jack-of-all-stunts out there. The towering Ivy has created and performed stunts in a dizzyingly large number of films and TV shows including NEAR DARK and BUBBA HO-TEP.Be warned, we expect foul language and adult situations.
