Chad Bellamy

Stunt Capacities: Performer/Coordinator/Fight Choreographer
Stunt Years Experience: 25
Affiliation: Stunt Canada
IMDB
Nominated by: Colin Decker
Statement: My name is Chad Bellamy and I have had the pleasure of working in and being a part of the Vancouver stunt community for over 25 years. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work in many facets of the film industry such as performing, stunt acting, stunt coordinating, fight coordinating and stunt rigging at an assisting level. I have had opportunities to travel outside of Canada with teams for extended periods of time. I feel that my years of experience will be a valuable addition to the stunt committee. I’m not afraid to speak my mind and have a conversation that others may find awkward or difficult. I hope to be able to work with the stunt committee members to keep us moving in a positive direction, as well as make it better for the future generations to come. Thank you for your consideration.

One that I am proud to be part of.
The potential opportunity to be a representative of the stunt committee at this time would be an honor.

Timothy Wallace

Stunt Capacities: Performer/Actor/Fight Choreographer
Stunt Years Experience: 10
Affiliation: N/A
IMDB
Nominated by: Barry Nerling
Statement: Hello friendlies, some of you know me, some of you don’t. Many of you have trained with me, worked with me, and many more been a victim of my non-specific, uncle-tier life advice. I hold community and comraderie in the fore of my approach to this business. I understand that we all exist in this sphere together. Every department, every level, the same amount of respect. I am an incredibly approachable, silly human. When I don’t have an answer I’ll admit it, but will then do my best to find that answer. I have a degree in English Language and Literature, a background in occupational health and safety, and a passion for keeping us all whole. Voting for me adds a strong, compassionate voice to the brain-trust that is the Stunt Committee. I have been everything from a PA watching lockup, a background performer, an actor, a stunt performer, an apprentice stunt coordinator, a fight coordinator, and an instructor of combat and arms. I love this business. I love that we get to tell stories, I love that we go home at the end of the day as whole as we were when we arrived. I hope you will vote for me, as I will serve with all my heart to the best of my ability. Thank you for your time.

Nominated by: Colin Decker
Statement: I continue to enjoy everyday spent on set working with our stunt community solving creative problems for Directors’ visions.
My background in safety, industry, and film informs my experience for what I bring as a rigger. The past decade spent working in the various rigging camps and with a large number of performers hopefully will make me accessible to riggers and performers alike.
