Category:TOS stunt performers, etcEdit

Stuntmen are being categorized as "Category:TOS performers" -- is this appropriate? If others don't think so, this category could be created to rectify this. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 12:37, 5 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Explanation NotesEdit

Some notes:
  • Stuntman/woman = generic term
  • Stunt actor or action actor = a stunt performers who also acts (not always with dialogue, but includes physical work and a larger on-screen appearance)
  • Utility stunts = stunt performers who act on screen but have no specific roles (like the stunt Ba'ku in ST9)
  • ND stunts = non-description stunts or non-dialogue stunts = utility stunts
  • Stunt double = stunt performer who replaces an actor for physical moves /heavy work

==> all stunt performers are also in the category performers, because they "appear" on screen.

  • Stunt rigger = stuntman who controls the rigging machine (a machine for special stunts)
  • Stunt coordinator = the man who creates and teaches the stunts

==>These two persons do not appear on-scree, they are production staff members

==>Stunt performers are not: Body doubles, light doubles or stand-ins.

.... I hope this explains the occupations a little bit. – Tom 00:24, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
