A professional stunt man has returned to his training routes in Manchester to set up an office in The Sharp Project.

Justin Pearson, a stunt performer turned co-ordinator, has been a part of the professional stunt performer industry for twenty years, and has worked on a number of film and TV productions.

His recent work has been on the set of Sky's drama series Curfew, where he was working in the stunt department.

Pearson, from Shropshire, decided to re-locate his industry knowledge and experience and base himself in the North West due to the growing production industry in the region.

''It's a great opportunity for me to be based at The Sharp Project. To be amidst the buzz of production in the North West is exciting,” said Pearson.

“I'm looking forward to getting to know the tenants here and work on potential future collaborations.''

Rob Page, Commercial Director of The Sharp Project added: ''We work with TV and film production companies on a daily basis, so to have niche and unique production offering such as Justin's is a great asset to The Sharp Project. He's a great fit and we're excited to add another creative tenant to our community.''

The Sharp Project is a £16.5million profit-for-purpose development, home to VR gaming, CGI animation and digital forensics businesses.
