Kristoffer Jørgensen was stunt coordinator on his first feature in 1995, on the WWII film “The Minister of State”. The same year, he began his training with the Nordic Stage Fight Society. At this time, stunt work was far from an established service in Norway. Recognising this, in 1998 the Norwegian Film Institute gave Kristoffer a grant enabling him to study stunt work in the USA. After returning, he has worked full time in film and theatre as one of the leading fight choreographers and stunt coordinators in the Nordic region, and the Arctic Action team has grown and developed ever since.
2006 was another important year for us, as we arranged the first major stunt training workshop in Norway with top instructors from Taiwan and the USA, educating a new generation of Nordic stunt performers.
Today, in addition to all-round utility stunt performers, our core team counts specialists such as riggers, stunt drivers, rescue divers and 2nd unit directors. We stress training, formal certifications and team work, combining a mandatory stunt curriculum with individual specialisations. Our experience base covers everything from huge, international feature films to modest student productions. We often work with stunt coordinators from abroad, and learn more every time.
We adhere to international standards for equipment and skill levels for stunt performers, fusing big budget know-how and standards with local production culture, people and stories. Based in Tromsø, the largest city in the north of Norway, our perspective is equally international, national, regional and local. With more than 20 years in the business, covering hundreds of productions, our mileage and versatility is your guarantee for stellar action sequences – safely, on time, within budget.
