Hollywood stuntmen such as Wade Eastwood are the brain and power behind many car chases in films such as “Mission Impossible” and “Fate of the Furious (Fast & Furious 8)”. Car chase stunts often cost millions and require a number of brave stunt heroes. Business Insider spoke with stuntman Wade Eastwood about how he trains and prepares for an auto stunt.
Eastwood indicates that safety and training are important elements of his work. Every surface is different, from wet and slippery streets to a dusty desert. Before a recording is actually made, it is therefore important that he first makes a good number of practice laps. You can see for yourself how an auto stunt is being filmed in the video below.
