•FAQs of the day• Q: If I take all three course in August (6-Day Intensive), I will be taking Level 1 and 2 a second time. Would that 50% discount still apply for retirning students for L1 & L2? A: Yes. It would be $385. To do the intensive in that case because it would be your first time attending L3. ____ Q: In the live fire training with you is that just one full hour, is it a few hours? A: It's one hour of training. Half of it is a warm up on fundamentals you've already learned in class and applying them to actual marksmanship. The other half is working towards qualifying in our basic Act Tactical for Film Course of Fire. ____ Q: For the live fire course, what is the breakdown of it? That way I know what to better prepare. A: It's working fundamentals of marksmanship for the basic one. It'll be based on the state and federal courses of fire minus the kneeling to reload. Distances range from 25 down to 3 yards. 30 round course. The same course I've shot many times as a police officer in the state of GA.
•Weekday Class• I know for some of you that weekend classes are hard to do, there will be a Level 1 in Atlanta 8/26 - 8/27 (Wednesday and Thursday) as part of our intensive, but you're welcome to attend just that one if needed.
I will soon be announcing our newest military advisor/military coordinator for Act Tactical for Film. I've yet to find someone that can stand up to what this man is bringing to the table. Let me just share some of his background: -United States Army 2004-2012 Fort Benning, GA, Fort Bragg, NC, Fort Jackson, SC -Completed 11B One Station Unit Training -Completed Airborne School -Completed Phase I through Phase VI of Special Forces Qualification Course, including PLDC, Basic Non-Commissioned Officers Course, Special Forces Assessment and Selection, 18C Special Forces Engineer Sergeant Course, SERE Level C, Small Unit Tactics, Korean Special Operations Language Training, and Unconventional Warfare Course (Robin Sage) -Completed United States Drill Sergeant School, including ASSIST training
•Certifications• Happy to announce we will be allowing those that have completed any of our courses can come back through at 50% off. We will begin offering Certifications for Act Tactical for Film LLC once a student has completed a specific block of instruction twice and meets our standards. The second time you attend a course will be a form of testing for you. Individual certifications for various phases will be given after the second completion. Any courses involving Sanay Jason Croom will have to be approved by him personally. To receive our full fledged Senior Student Certification every student must complete all three levels twice, a live fire training lesson with me personally, pass our live fire course of fire with at least an 80% and complete a police ride along with Officer Jeff Manley.
I am THRILLED to announce this. It's something I've been wanting to do for a very long time and it means my company/program is finally reaching a standard I've worked my ass off to achieve and it's the thanks to all of you. This started as something for the ones coming from Los Angeles, but... •6 Day Intensive with Act Tactical for Film• Dates: 8/26 - 8/31 TRAINING WILL BE RECORDED AND PHOTOGRAPHED PROFESSIONALLY For those that have never held a gun or thrown a punch, all the way up to those with knowledge wishing to learn some new skills. Atlanta, GA Levels 1, 2, 3 Host: Act Tactical for Film LLC Instructors: Matt Clanton, Sanay Jason Croom, Assistant Instructor Tom Trinh and guest instructors TBA Cost: $590 (talent agency and management agency rates are available by request when referring multiple clients) We realize for some it would be a lot of extra effort and money to make multiple trips to return separate weekends to complete all three levels.

Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or if you have any questions.
