First of all, why don't you indroduce yourself to those of us unlucky enough to not already know you?

 

My name is Jasi Lanier, I am a stuntwoman, actress and stunt coordinator

 

So how does one become a stunt girl and stunt coordinator in the first place, and what kind of training did you undergo? And what kind of stunts do you specialize in?

 

There is no one way into stunts. Everybody has a different path. Most people already have family in the business or come into it with a strong and elite background, in gymnastics, martial arts, cirque, motorcycles or cars.

I am constantly training to improve and expand my skills. I have a black sash in kung fu, purple belt in Tae Kwon Do, train Filipino Martial arts, do aerial,  scuba, ride horse, dirtbikes, motorcycles etc. I am not a specialist with stunts, more of an all around stunt girl but I do love training fights, weapons and cars the most currently.

 

So let's talk about some of your recent movies for a bit, and your work on them:

The Adventures of Paula Peril? And anything you can tell us about that movie's sequel yet?

 

Jasi with Valerie Perez in

The Adventures of Paula Peril

The Adventures of Paula Peril is movie based on the comic book starring Valerie Perez. I play the leader of the bad gang in the first movie and have a fight with the main actress. I was also a stunt coordinator on that movie. It is set to release in May of this year.

The sequel has a bit of a Indiana Jones kind of feel. I am on a non-disclosure to say anything about this movie though I will say that we have already started previzing the fights and working with actresses on action. Looking great already and it is still maintaining the comedy and sexiness of the first movie with the action.

 

Adam 8?

 


Adam 8 is a sci-fi movie. An illness wiped out our ability to produce the X chromosome and since we are about to run out of genetic matter and cloning attempts have failed, a team of female astronauts travel to a distant terraformed planet to see if any healthy males exist. It stars Dean Cain. I am stunt coordinating and playing an alien warrioress.

 

Sons of Liberty?

 

Sons of Liberty is an independent action movie starring Tamer Hassan, Keith David and Elyse Levesque. I stunt coorindated the movie and played Agent X. We shot it in Mobile, AL. Def the coolest part was shooting on a military ship and coordinating the big fight between two of the main actresses. Sons of Liberty is currently released and available at Walmart.

 

Furious 7? And how does work on a high profile franchise movie compare to work on indie films?

 

In big budget films, you have more time and money to make things happen. As a stuntwoman and performer, I do'nt get to do as much big stunts on these films but it is always cool to work on them especially when you get to be a part of a big franchise like Fast and Furious.

 

Any other current movies and future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

I also am a part of a steampunk action movie called Aether by Frame 29 Films, it is about a a band of outcasts that defend their homeland from a king obsessed with keeping his floating city skyborne. We shot the prologue last month and it looks amazing. All steampunk fans will love this movie.

Also just shot a video promo for Xbox game PayDay 2, I played the character Clover.

 

As far as I know, before you got into stunting, you already had a career as model and actress - so what can you tell us about those aspects of your career?

 

Modeling and acting was  my segue into stunts and action acting. I have been painted over 300 times and done over 80 photoshoots. I loved modeling for famous artists (Joe Jusko, Dorian Cleavenger, Mike James, Greg Hildebrandt, Age etc.) and acting in horror films. I still do acting in horror films now but usually asked to do stunts with it too.

 

Can you still remember your first time in front of a movie or TV camera, and what was that experience like?

 

Yes, it was on Freakshow. I played a young witch who committed suicide. I was a little nervous but really enjoyed the experience of movie making.

 

What made you pick up doing stunts and stunt coordination eventually?

 

I was already acting and did some soul searching, and between my love of martial arts and my uncle, Dusty, who did live stunt shows in the 60s and 70s, the answer became apparent and I began to pursue stunts.

 

You're also a fire eater, right? So how does one even get into something like this?

 

I saw a beautiful dancer eat fire and decided that I had to learn how to do it as well. I asked around and found a local performer who taught me.

 

Any other talents of yours you'd like to share?

 

I do aerial hoop, hula hoop, static trapeze, stilts, and jam rollerskater.

 

Stunt people, actresses, whoever else who inspire you?

 

Many people inspire me but my top two would be Sandy Gimpel, she is a stuntwoman/ actress in her 70s and still killing it. And Heidi Moneymaker, she is one of the top stuntwomen especially when it comes to fights.
