MORE ABOUT STUNT MAN, GARY POWELL
Gary Powell has worked on over 50 feature films, including: '
The Legend of Zorro' (2005), Terminator 3: Rise of the machines' (2003) and 'Titanic' (1997)

In the Guardian Newspaper (2002) stunt veteran Vic Armstrong was asked for his list of the riskiest and most innovative stunts of all time. Gary Powell made the top ten for his work on The World Is Not Enough (1999).

"The powerboat roll in the pre-credit sequence epitomises the risks on which so many stunts depend for their success. If the stuntman, Gary Powell, had been premature in activating the jets that flip the boat, even by a split second, then the boat would have gone on to its roof and he would have had his head ripped off. You can wear a helmet, but all that means is that they'll find your head with a helmet on it. It's a magnificent stunt. Pre-credit Bond sequences are always exciting to work on because you know you're being called upon to push this tradition further than ever before. On my website, I invited ideas for future pre-credit sequences, hoping it might spark something off in my head. One wag suggested a pre-credit sequence with no stunts, just acting. It would take a braver man than me to pull that off"





AS MANY NOW KNOW, FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS KERBIE HAS BEEN TOUGHING IT OUT IN THE BAHAMAS WORKING ON THE NEW BOND MOVIE. HE'S JUST ABOUT TO HEAD FOR HOME, BUT MANAGED TO SEND A FEW WORDS ABOUT HIS TRIP.

Me and Curtis left our homes on the 23rd of January to work in the stunt team on James Bond 21.

So far this trip has exceeded all of the expectations that we both had of the Bond world.

We were told that the production company would arrange taxis to pick Curtis and myself up from our homes. They didnt tell us that they would send Mercs to pick us up.

We met at the airport and were told that we wouldnt be sitting next to each other on the plane. We were speaking with the assistant at the booth and she said she could sort it out. We went into the business lounge for our free food and drinks.

Curtis and I had never flown first class before, so it was a shock to the squares in suits to see two young guys jumping up and down and getting more excited than a hyperactive nephew at christmas.
13 hours later, we hit the Baha. It was 1am so we didnt really get to see anything, just straight to bed and get some sleep before we had to start work in 6 hours time.

The first month of training was mental. We spent about 14 hours a day on location prepping stunts, choreographing movements and making tea for the boss. We were along some of the most notorious stunt men on the register, lead by Gary "I could break your legs just by looking at you" Powell.

Check out: www.garypowellstunts.com to get a bonor over how awesome he is.

Lee Morrison was a life saver on the job. At 31 he's one of the best motobike riders in the world, and just as immature as me and Curtis. When things would get hard, he would be there to make us
piss ourselves laughing, from trying to order chinese food in an indian restaurant, to pranking the not-so-innocent special effects guys.

On set we also met members of zanshin south; Kasper, Cien, Alexus, Lee, Dee, Omar and Malcolm, native free runners, gymnasts and tricksters.

Zanshin South

These guys blew us away. They are more talented and original than anyone I have ever met. Whilst only getting 10 days off in ten weeks, it was pretty hard to train with the guys so it was usually the odd tricking session down the beach. These guys have been tricking all of their lives so after seeing Jump London on the discovery channel, it would have been against the laws of the universe for them not to start.

The guys train together and some arent even aware of any of the politics or happenings in the world of parkour. But they knew who seb was.

Seeing Sebastian again was great for my mind. At the moment I've been thinking about what parkour really is to me and is it more than just getting from A to B.....blahblahblah. Speaking with Seb and hearing him discuss philosophies and theories that he carries around in a little note book has really opened my eyes.

We've come to the conclusion that parkour is like those annoying numbers from lost. It has controlled the fate of many free runners and lead to a few curses here and there. We've also discussed the future of parkour, and how we can make a positive future for everyone.

From the ideas that were thrown into the think tank, the future is looking great. I cant really type the teachings of seb down, it wont do them justice, but if anyone see's me out training and wants to know more, come and ask (and prepare for a couple of hours of discussion).

I cant really say much about the movie as i have signed contracts and shit, but i can say that Daniel Craig is a top bollocks guys. He invited the stunt guys to a beach party for his birthday, they had a pig on a spit roast, never seen one of them before. I think he's what the bond machine need in the new bond movie.

He's got what it takes.

Right thats all I'm allowed to say before Eon Productions hire some ninja-lawyers to come and legally rape me. So I guess that when the movie comes out, I'll be putting a big article full of pictures in the mag.

Next stop in the Kerbie world tour...Lisses.
