Dan Speaker

Dan Speaker and Jan Bryant design action for TV, film, stage, and video games, creating unique work for each project. They specialize not only in training stunt people and actors including Russell Crowe, Bruce Campbell, Charlie Sheen, Viggo Mortensen, and Paul Bettany to perform fights, but also in working with directors including Steven Spielberg, Peter Weir and Sam Raimi to make the action an integral part of the story. They have an ongoing training program at their Academy of Theatrical Combat to teach anyone who is interested in combat and swordplay as an art form.
