I have hired him for three feature films (“Exit Speed “, “A Haunting at The Beacon” and “Infiltrators”) and he did an excellent job every time. He is easy to work with, produces high quality results, creates stunning performances safely, and has a cheerful personality. He also is dedicated to training and teaching those coming up the ladder behind him. We hope to have the opportunity to work with John again and again.”

“I have had the opportunity to train under John Cann in stunts for almost 12 years. John’s God given talent, expertise, and knowledge is far beyond what anyone can imagine. He has trained me in high falls, fight choreography/techniques for film and stage, Air Ram, trampoline work, Ratchet, how to fall safely, car stunts and many other skills that have benefited me in my stunt career. Along with the stunt training, he has also taught me the importance of safety which is number one to John. Over the years, I have watched John train a group of stuntmen and woman that have moved forward with their careers in the film industry. I have had the opportunity to perform stunts on Chase, The Good Guys, and Exit Speed. I owe my success to John and I will never be able to repay him for what he has taught me. On top of his talent, he has integrity, honesty and passion that shines through and through.”
