Television and Film Support

TrinityFox is a company formed of ex UK Metropolitan Police, Special Forces and international firearms experts who provide firearms safety training and on set support to the television and film industry. 

TrinityFox provide tailored training and instruction for actors and stunt professionals for specific roles and scenes in productions that require bespoke firearms training and safety input. We work with writers, producers and directors to ensure the actors achieve the absolute realism and the on screen look required for any production.

We provide actors and stunt professionals courses in firearm safe handling and familiarisation. These courses span one, two or five days duration either on set or at various locations in the UK including north London. 

In addition we also provide a one day 'Production Crew Firearm Safety Awareness' course for directors, production staff and crew. The course will cover all aspects of safety in relation to the use of firearms on a production and highlight how to ensure all crew and staff know how to work safely with prop firearms used in productions and mitigate risks on the set.  

We have provided support and firearm safety training for actors on a major BBC drama and on film sets in the UK.

TESTIMONIALS

“A thorough, enabling, practical course that is both professional and hugely informative. Chris and his instructors take firearms safety seriously and treat their students with respect whilst running a very enjoyable and inclusive course "

Kristian Dench  - Producer 'The Capture' BBC

“I did the 2 day course with Trinity Fox, and I highly recommend it. Anybody wanting to gain experience and know how, not only with tactical manoeuvres and the jargon used by specialist Firearms and Counter Terrorism officers, but also about weapon safety and how to handle guns with confidence and poise on a film set will sill find this course invaluable. 

The instructors were friendly and funny, yet rigorous and methodical.There is a constant flow of banter, but that never threats to overwhelm the seriousness of the subject they are informing on. The course is crammed full of priceless information, both analytical and practical. The instructors also created scenarios where you can viscerally feel what it is like to be a special firearms officers.

This course is a must for any actor or creator who is involved in a project containing firearms police or Counter Terrorism officers, as their specific knowledge is second to none. It was a great help for me, and something I would do again in a heartbeat."
