Flashback: The Stunt that went right

Flashback: The Stunt that went right

30 September 2018 Email this article

Back in 2011, Facelift was tasked with helping out with the lighting and filming for production of Rocky Taylor’s “The Stunt That Went Right" a charity event held at London's Battersea Power Station.

The event featured legendary stuntman Rocky Taylor re-enacting a stunt from 1985 that nearly ended his career, when, filming the thriller Death Wish starring Charles Bronson, he plunged 40ft from a burning building, fracturing his spine and pelvis and suffering horrific burns.

However, undeterred, Rocky, at the time Britain’s oldest stuntman, recreated the leap by jumper from Battersea Power Station in order to raise awareness of Remember a Charity, an organisation which encourages people to gift money to charity in their wills.

Joanne Clode from Facelift’s Purfleet depot worked with Heart Production and Remember a Charity to supply the 4 x SkyJack 9250, and Haulotte HA16 and HA260.

This is the video of the stunt:
