A new string to our bow!

Last year I was approached by "Yesterday Channel" to see if I could help them with a TV Programme called " Black Ops 2". It was based on a true story of the Airliner that was hijacked in 1977, and GSG9 German Special Forces stormed the plane and rescued all hostages with no fatalities apart from the hijackers. My role was to advise them on fighting scenes. Since then I have worked on 4 other major feature films and a TV series, which will all be out in 2015!
Cheers Jim
