Vic Armstrong was a name I first heard as a kid watching an old film show called ‘Clapperboard’ (at least that’s what I think it was called). Anyway I saw Vic on screen dressed as Indiana Jones and I didn’t know why so I kept watching. It was that interview with Vic that gave me my first insight into the unsung heroes of some of my favourite films – the stuntman.

Vic’s credits when you read them in the press release below speak for themselves. I only wish I was in london that evening to make it along to the Q&A as I’m sure it will be a fascinating event.
