Legendary Hollywood stuntman Gary Montana, who has doubled actors in Fast and Furious, Pirates of the Caribbean, Forest Gump, and over 700 additional movies and television shows, has come to Fort Collins to open the Motion Picture Stunts and Tactical Studio. He trains actors, stunt performers, law enforcement/ military, and weekend warriors and for several years held the high-fall record of 225 feet while on fire. Montana moved to Fort Collins for romance, but stayed for the opportunity to liven up a great city. According to Montana, whether a famous actor or first-time college student, students are all treated the same. He instructs courses that include stunt fighting, explosions, dives and rolls, limited high falls, combat and sword fighting, and military/SWAT tactical screen action. Classes begin Feb. 23 and the studio is located at 1318 Blue Spruce Drive No. 5. For more information visit www.motionpicturestunts.com.
