Caution: Contains Graphic Scenes – Our Realism is your Strength

Having been introduced to ‘Amputees In Action’ from real soldiers we used in ‘The King’s Speech’ I was amazed at the level of excellence and enthusiasm from their artists. The knowledge and realism these men & women bring with them is invaluable to any production. I was so impressed after using AinA that I did not hesitate to use them again when the opportunity arose to find some ‘beggars’ for ‘The Crimson Petal & The White’. Recently I have used AinA again to find ‘WW2 blitz victims’ for ‘The Other Child’ and once again the director and crew were really impressed. I would highly recommend Amputees In Action to any production company. The men & women they provide are a true inspiration.
