Film & Television

As the Managing Director of Rivers Edge Stunts Limited, Curtis provided quality stunt action in movies, television shows and commercials for almost 30 years.  Services included everything from initial script interpretation and breakdown, through storyboarding, location recces, filmed stunt testing and rehearsals, to the actual set-up, filming, coordinating and directing of the stunts or stunt sequences themselves.

It was on the movie set that Rivers first began his fascination with 'over coming fear' and the psychology behind that.


In the process he discovered all 'limiting beliefs' could be eradicated, which formed the initial spark that ignited his passion for writing, teaching, and now holistic life coaching.

He's added to his vast amount of media qualifications with an impressive array of coaching qualifications, which include Holistic Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique.

2nd Unit Directing

Curtis branched out mid-career to direct action on the 2nd Unit.  While the Main Unit stayed with actors to capture dialogue for example, he went to a different location with the 2nd Unit to direct stunts or action sequences with both cast and stunt performers.


He directed everything from car chases to horse riding sequences,  underwater scenes to fights and falls.  2nd Unit Directing credits include the movie 'Bliss', and popular TV shows such as

'The Good Karma Hospital', 'Whitstable Pearl', 'The Feed', 'Vera', and many more.
