Action Specialists was founded by Mark Dirkse, a veteran of over 17 years in the entertainment stunt industry. He has overseen the action sequences and safety on numerous film projects along with creating and coordinating shows for major theme parks both in the United States and abroad. The Action Specialists team draws upon the knowledge, talent and resources of several top stunt coordinators and performers in the business today.

Our uncompromising philosophy is that all action be executed in a safe and sane manner. Any action sequence imaginable can be safely and breath takingly achieved with proper planning, rehearsal and equipment - all of which can be provided by Action Specialists.
