Film Set Safety 101

Taught By:

Matthew Arnold


Assistant Director Andrew Spieler and RocketJump Director/Co-Creator Matthew Arnold sit down to have a real discussion about safety on set.

Lesson Plan

Who is responsible for safety?

In this behind the scenes video, our friend Andrew Spieler (Assistant Director for RJ:The Show) and RocketJump director/co-creator Matthew Arnold cover the precautions and safety measures taken for the large-scale stunts in the new action-packed short, [Truck Flipper vs Bus Puncher](LINK TO SHORT) for RocketJump: The Show. But they also explain how placing the utmost importance on safety can actually better your film.

You should never compromise the safety of your crew for a shot. If you EVER feel unsafe or uncertain on set, speak up! Bring it to the attention of the Assistant Director, Producer, and Director. Ask questions, double check, and keep the lines of communication clear and open.
