March 18, 2020
Rick Avery started out in life as a man with passion for karate and judo, found himself, pretty much by accident, on a Hal Needham movie and the rest as they say is history. Rick has done it all from fights, to fire jobs and high work. He is considered by many as one of the best car men in the business and in 1998 was given the job of coordinating the stunts on the movie Blues Brothers 2000. The 1980 original contained a mass car crash sequence that had to be topped. And boy did he top it!
He talks us through his career and that incredible car crash sequence in this weeks episode.
