As we are conducting the Advanced course on the day after (07th October) we are offering a one-time offer. If you select this option "when you book" on the Handgun & Tactical Rifle course you will only pay £110 instead of £139 and get your food for free on that day. At this reduced price, the course must be attended on the 07th October and is only an online offer.
So what does it all entail...
This is your chance to experience the handling of firearms with a hands-on training course to increase your skills while having fun doing so. Learn how to hold and load multiple Handguns, Rifles & Shotguns while moving like a professional feeling confident that when that on-screen opportunity comes, you will be competent and safe to perform like a pro.
We will cover the basics like...
1. The safe use of firearms in Film & TV productions recommended by the HSE (Health & Safety Executive)
2. The 4 main safety rules when handling firearms and how they benefit you as an Actor
3. Familiarisation of the different types of firearms available on-screen past and present and how they work
4. Marksmanship principals with tactical movement and firing positions to fit different firearm roles on Film & TV
5. Competency and safety testing
6. Shooting during film
7. Live Fire Target Shooting
DAY ONE will be the "Handgun for Film & TV course" where we will cover everything you need to know when dealing with handguns on screen and experience firing a Glock 17 or Beretta M9 pistol, the blank firing of course along with a Colt Peacemaker Blank firing Revolver as you see on Westerns or period dramas.
DAY TWO will be the "Tactical Rifle for Film & TV course" where we will cover tactical rifles like the M4/AR15, AK47 and the G36 used by British Firearm Police. We will step it up with more tactics to give you the ability to act as natural as possible while manipulating firearms in front of the camera.
We have now incorporated live firing Pump-Action Shotguns so you can truly experience recoils while incorporating the skills you will learn to accurately shoot at our blow-up targets to finish the course with a bang. Over the two days, you will cover the 7 areas broken down above.
There will be a lot of hands-on practicals on both days but no rolling about or playing soldiers so no matter what your age or ability you will be able to join in on the action. We carry out assessments of competence as the course progresses to make sure you are at the correct standard of weapon handling and safety.
All this over two days for only £279 and you can pay securely right here. Spaces are limited to just 8 per course for optimal individual attention so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Each day is from 09:30 to 15:00/16:00 and can be booked individually for those who have already been on the "Handgun for Film & TV course" before and now want to join us on the "Tactical Rifle for Film & TV Course" and complete the full training.
This year we have included lunch into the course package at no extra cost. Please state that you want to take advantage of this and if you have any allergies or allergic to anything. Even if you don't opt-in please provide this information.
