Where there's smoke...
...there's ID Fight Unit member and stunt trainee Dita Tantang.
ID Fight Unit member and stunt trainee Dita Tantang attended the Fire Course held by the London Stunt School, where she learnt not only how to be set alight but how to set others alight too. Safely!
Dita was taught the science behind fire, combustion and heat radiation before dealing with naked flames. She acquired a real understanding of the fire stunt and in turn the knowledge of how safe it was.
Everyone was kept busy on the course whether priming the next human fire ball with napalm, standing ready with the blowtorch, or being alert with fire extinguishers and wet towels.
With clear direction and newly gained knowledge, everyone felt safe and confident so in the end, all she had to worry about was acting like she was really burning to a crisp!
