What it Takes to Get into the “World of Action” – Stunt Work and Special Effects

 

Here’s Why You Should Attend

The film industry here in Northeast Ohio has become one of the hottest growth industries for the region. The Music Box is proud to partner with the Cleveland Film Commission, and the Cleveland State University School of Film and Media Arts, to present the monthly Film Café. The goal of the Film Café is to offer a fun environment for fans and other film industry pros to learn more about filmmaking from each other. Each month, a Film Pro will dissect a specific topic, and kick-off a conversation for the audience to discuss and contribute their ideas. The event will morph into a networking session where the industry can catch-up on each other’s projects. The event is free to attend, and will feature some fantastic food & beverage specials. We strongly recommend you sign up in advance to ensure a seat at the table!

 

Richard Fike Bio

Richard Fike is a Cleveland based Stunt Coordinator, Stuntman and Licensed Explosives expert who has been involved with the film industry for over 25 years. He is Director of Stunt Predators USA & SFX located here in NE Ohio, and conducts training sessions to over 40 professional stuntmen and women on a monthly basis. His first taste of writing and directing action began when he choreographed the action for the 1986-87 Cleveland Browns Fantasy Video, Masters of the Gridiron. Since then he has appeared in over 80 feature films, including Marvel’s Avengers, Captain American – Winter Soldier, Draft Day and many more.

When not on set, Richard can be found teaching martial arts to his students at his dojo in Madison, or providing Close Quarter Combative’s training, advice, and assistance to “At Risk” individuals and organizations across the U.S. He is a retired U.S. Army Officer with over 26 years of service within the Special Operations community where his real world experiences have assisted him in keeping the “action” on set authentic. His priority on set has and will always be SAFETY first. He holds both state and federal licenses in explosives and pyrotechnics, and is a certified weapons armorer.

Richard has also taught and supported film education programs at Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland State University, and Kent State University.
