Hello, I'm Jake, most know me as Kid Richmond. When I was growing up I quickly realized that my personality and life style needed a complimenting career, one that would be challenging yet providing an outlet for my ability to create and explore. Perfectly fitting, I've been working as a stunt coordinator and stunt performer for the past ten years and have enjoyed every moment.
Branded as Richmond Stunts, my colleagues and associates lend our abilities to mainly feature and television productions. Throughout the course of my career I've worked with some amazing actors, writers and directors though I must admit that the behind the scenes crew has made working in the entertainment business the most enjoyable.
Some of my career highlights are:
Worked in the Middle East as the Stunt Co-coordinator for Ken Loach's "Route Irish" which competed for the Cannes 2010 Palme d'Or.
Playing airman Wallace and major close up in JJ Abrams "Super 8".
Stunt Coordinator for Ridley Scott's 2013 "Killing Lincoln".
What I do exactly:
I bring the action from script to screen. I make the cars smash and the fights look real and gritty. I have an excellent network of highly skilled and credited stuntmen and women. We can train your actors, design your fights, wreck the cars or jump off the rooftop. If its action, we can do it.
I pride myself in collecting any tool I need for the job. A short running list of what I've got; stunt pads ,safety rigging, harnesses, automotive rigging, fire protection gear, rescue equipment and a fabrication facility to build anything that is required to get the job done.
