Recreating Hollywood’s Biggest Stunts

 

James August Smith is a working stuntman who has brought new life to vehicular stunts that were, for the most part, abandoned by television and film in the 1980s.  In order to recreate these stunts - Jamey has personally went to the horse’s mouth and learned from the exact people who perfected these stunts originally.  In many cases he has even obtained the original equipment used to make the stunts work!


Television of the 1970's and 1980's were reaching new levels of high action car stunts. As a young boy, Jamey’s attention was held captive by the exciting action in shows such as "The Dukes of Hazzard," "Knight Rider," "Fall Guy," "The A Team" and many others.


Some years later Jamey was truly blessed as to became friends with several of the stuntmen and coordinators from my favorite shows. They are considered the best of the best in the industry. It is not only an honor but a privilege to be involved in projects with such renown skill, talent and experience. The encouragement to pursue my dreams, and the advice I have received is priceless.
