For more than twenty-five years, Thomas DuPont has been successfully choreographing, training and performing a variety of stunts and fights for commercials, film, and television. By using an arsenal of knowledge and experience, being inspired by the "art of human movement" and tapping into martial arts training, Thomas creates a variety of action designs for the camera that are exciting, safe and surprisingly easy to learn. Thomas' style is frequently highlighted, and has been described as "a combination of focus and precision, power, and grace."
Thomas’ scene preparation encompasses instructions from the director, abilities of the performers, and integrity of each character – all while staying true to the script. With this foundation in mind, he builds a scene with creativity, diversity, responsibility, and originality – ultimately creating a scene with realistic, interesting movements and a distinct personality – often discovering and incorporating elements that have never before been seen on film... all of which have earned Thomas numerous accolades and respect as both a performer and choreographer.
By working with and training thousands of actors and stunt performers, Thomas developed a level of experience, patience and adaptability needed to train performers of all skill levels. His ability to quickly assess natural strengths and teach in accordance with each individual’s learning process ultimately speeds up the rehearsal process and allows the performer’s maximum potential to be achieved.
Thomas’ passion for his craft fuels his enthusiasm for training, research, experimentation and artistry. Armed with a solid work ethic and fierce determination, this dynamic industry inspires Thomas to continually enhance his style to not only meet – but also exceed – the industry’s standards.

THE SUICIDE SQUAD (aka SUICIDE SQUAD 2)
In this DC Comics pseudo-sequel directed by James Gunn (ala Guardians of the Galaxy films), Margot Robbie will reprise her roll as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Will Smith will not be returning, but Nathan Fillian, John Cena, and Idris Elba will be joining the cast!
With the first installment breaking the $700 million mark, we're enthusiastic about TSS!
The stunt crew does far more than anyone realizes. They are highly trained, technically saavy and unbelievably creative. If it weren't for their skill and imagination, most entertainment would be extremely boring. They create the tension and the spectacle.
