Owner

With a quarter-century of performance capture experience, TJ Storm is one of Hollywood’s most expert character creators working in Film, TV, and Video Games. TJ has studied, designed, and created action for every kind of character: aliens and monsters, titans and gods, robots, kaiju, superheroes and supervillains; for projects ranging from Godzilla, Avengers: Infinity War, and Guardians of the Galaxy to Call of Duty, Deadpool, Avatar, and God of War.

A seven-time International Martial Arts Hall of Fame Recipient, TJ’s experience in teaching for over 30 years is invaluable when it comes to movement and performance.

A lifetime of study in the martial arts, film and tv acting, dance, and intense study with some of the world’s best instructors have given TJ Storm an amazing career as an actor and top performance capture artist, as well as an unparalleled edge in teaching the new generations of actors, action actors, and stunt performers the wonderful and dynamic art of action acting and performance capture.
