Early 1970, the Western Era in film and television had ended, and there was need for advancement in stunt performance and technology. Three prominent stuntmen, Hal Needham, Ronnie Rondell and Glenn Wilder banded together to create an elite organization comprised of Hollywood's top A-list stunt performers where stunts would be UNLIMITED. They made it impossible to join, and only recruited new members through private and studied observations. Eleven top prospects were invited into their group, and STUNTS UNLIMITED was born.
STUNTS UNLIMITED became Hollywood's best-kept secret and the most sought after action group. If you wanted the best, you came to STUNTS UNLIMITED. Its membership consists of the top motorcycle racers, car drivers, horsemen, pilots, aerial specialists, and fight choreographers, all with the innovative ideas and progressive thinking needed for the future of stunts in film and television.
From the very beginning of its inception, STUNTS UNLIMITED has led the pack for all the others to follow. It has earned a reputation for providing the best action in film for today's top-grossing pictures. STUNTS UNLIMITED is the ultimate goal for any stunt person coming to Hollywood.
While remaining an exclusive organization of under 50 members, it consists of Hollywood's premiere second unit directors, stunt coordinators and stuntmen in the industry today. STUNTS UNLIMITED is the best of the best, the cream of the crop. If you want to push the envelope, obliterate limitations, and go bigger, faster, higher, and more spectacular than anyone else…you call STUNTS UNLIMITED.
