DISCLAIMER REGARDING STUNT TRAINING AND/OR CLASSES
We are not a stunt union, stunt association, or stunt school, and do not endorse any schools.
We do not, nor ever will offer any public or private classes for stunt training.
Stunt training is only offered for cast members of film and television productions that the LBP Stunts team have worked on or are currently working on due to production safety and insurance liability.
LBP Stunts Chicago was co-founded in 2006 in Chicago, IL by team director Emmanuel Manzanares, and has since become an emerging group of SAG-AFTRA stunt performers, fight choreographers, and stunt/fight coordinators that specialize in various types of action design, fight choreography, and stunt performance for film and television productions based primarily in the Chicagoland and Midwest area.

We have put our unique brand of stunt performance and action design on film and television productions, as well as motion capture for video game productions and music videos/commercials.

We strive to use our experience to perform and safely coordinate action, fight, and stunt sequences for film and television productions that are not only engaging to an audience, but unique in execution.
