A movie action resource for filmmakers.
I met Hal Needham at a book signing for Stuntman! at the Screen Actors Guild, along with a ton of his stunt performer peers. He was the legendary inventor of the car cannon and the Shotmaker, as well as director of Cannonball Run, Smokey and the Bandit, and the all-time stunt performer favorite movie Hooper. An action DP friend of mine, Lawrence Ribeiro, wrote a nice tribute to Hal Needham, on his blog.
