As a top industry professional with twenty seven years as a stunt performer and, later, 2nd Unit Director/Stunt Coordinator, Grady Bishop is often called upon to speak to various groups... both in, and out, of the movie and TV industry.

As a Speaker, Grady brings his enthusiasm and experience to the stage, your group and your meeting.

Whether in the movie world, or the business world, education is key... and Grady helps educate your "crew" as to what to look for, because just like in the movie world... in business, escape routes, and safety concerns.... are vitally important!

If you are interested in a stunt show for your group... making any stunt / action sequence or mechanical gag happen is only limited by your imagination and/or budget.

With stunt production, Grady brings much to the table... not just experience and talent.... Grady also owns his own stunt and safety equipment.

Grady's philosophy is to fill your idea of how the stunt should look, as it is a team effort and the director is telling the story.

As a Stunt Coordinator, Grady believes that a low key, safety first, helpful attitude is important for a powerful driving stunt or action sequence.  As a Speaker... the "volume" comes up and the "attitude" becomes more that of a "drive for success."

Grady lives in Central Florida... but Orlando, Miami, North Carolina, Dallas, Houston, Austin and Los Angeles are all part of his regular working territory... as Grady goes where the work is. 

You will not find anyone with more passion and enthusiasm than Grady Bishop... treat your group to the thrill of a little "movie magic!"
