Network 24 Blog: Controlled Chaos: The Life Of A Stunt Coordinator

Welcome back for another round of 24 blogging. Tonight, I’m presenting part of a special one-on-one interview with Jeff Cadiente, a seasoned Hollywood stunts professional and the Stunt Coordinator here on 24. Shauna and I were able to sit down with Jeff in our office and talk casually for a while.

As you’ve probably noticed, stunts are a big deal here at 24. What flies by on screen in a matter of seconds often requires weeks of preparation and careful planning. So what is it like being the Stunt Coordinator on 24? It’s a complex blend of choreography, adrenaline and safety-consciousness. But, above all, the end game is to make the action look as real as possible.

Let’s do some Q&A with Jeff — How did you get started in the stunt business?

What do you find yourself doing most often as the stunt coordinator on 24?
