  • Hi, I'm Shauna Duggins, and this is notes on the scene.

  • I've been a stuntwoman for 18 years ish and then I've been coordinating for probably about 10 of those years.

  • I've been a gymnast my whole life, so performing, flipping anything with your body.

  • That's just kind of been what I've been doing since I was six.

  • And then when I moved to L.

  • A.

  • I went into a gym that had open gym, and there were are all these stunt guys and, ah, couple stunt women and it was like, This is an actual career.

  • You guys do this for a living.

  • This is the coolest job ever.

  • Charlie's Angels will always be so dear to my heart.

  • It was my first big movie.

  • It was a lot of firsts for me.

  • I think my favorite stunt, I would say, would probably be the helicopter work other than being in Hawaii and taking a helicopter tour.

  • It was the first time I had really worked with a helicopter, and luckily it was with Craig Hoskins as a pilot whose amazing 20 years old and I am being told.

  • Hey, just hang from the skid dropped down from your knees.

  • Catch Lucy's character and your safety off by this.

  • And then I think another one I'm really proud of would be.

  • It's not a school of a gag, but it was a big stair fall with Cameron and the bad girl.

  • And it's because it's the first stair fall I had ever done.

  • And they said, the only advice I can give you for a stair fall is just goes aggressive and hard as you can.

  • Oh, okay.

  • They say so.

  • Now we're gonna build a platform.

  • They're going to jump off the platform, hit the top and then they're gonna fall together down the stairs.

  • It was built in turn off the bell falls.

  • We dive through the doors, hit the thing and go down the stairs.

  • It was the first I would say that wasn't a fight or gymnastics.

  • It was the first stunt Somebody said, Be aggressive and go for it.

  • Coordinating is a combination of the physical and the mental.

  • You get to sit down with the director and with the creators, and you say, What's the vision you're trying to create with this?

  • And then you come back and you figure out how to bring that fresh into bring it to life or you add to it and make suggestions and collaborate with everybody and find the best product.

  • Glow is a really unique experience in the creative process because from the very beginning, Liz and Carly have said, we really want our actresses to be able to wrestle.

  • They hired one rest or Kia Stevens, and she is a rock star in the wrestling world.

  • She's an amazing actress on then.

  • All of our other actresses are actresses, musicians, comedians, and they are amazing in their own right at what they do.

  • And so now they're coming in and they're completely out of their world to start with.

  • And we're asking them to look like professionals in a month.

  • And when someone struggles with something, you have to off 13 14 girls lifting her up, and then when someone gets something they've been working on, their also excited for each other, and it's really, really empowering.

  • It's beautiful to watch.

  • When I started glow, I didn't have a ton of experience with wrestling, so when I took my first meeting, I just said, I think the best way to help us and teach these women, it's as quickly as we can is to bring somebody from the wrestling world and will team together.

  • They'll know the the nuances of the wrestling world, and that's been Chavo Guerrero, Jr.

  • Friess and Chico.

  • And so then we collaborate together and we'll talk about stuff.

  • So between the two were teaching stunt world and wrestling, and it made me respect and appreciate them even so much more.

  • We have a lot of lot of fun.

  • There's a lot of trial and airing and and laughter in there, to say the least when we're playing around trying two.

  • This is a glow season to Liberty.

  • Bell is high, and she is wrestling with Zoya and she ends up breaking her ankle.

  • It was really important to us.

  • Stick to do very similar choreography.

  • So you knew that it was the same match that they had trained, but that you saw the difference in Liberty Bell.

  • If you see the training sequence, you see her more together.

  • She does the moves, but she's working with her, and in this, when you start to see everything is a little bit crazy and in the moves instead of it being together working with Allie here.

  • They're not really working together anymore.

  • She's off on her own path, so we wanted all the moves to have a similar feel, but just enough on Ed.

  • So now she grabs her here, which she's supposed to do in the Cory.

  • Oh, but she's very aggressive with her.

  • She starts to kind of control her more than working with her partner.

  • So normally wouldn't she brings her into the soup?

  • Lex.

  • She has her in the position.

  • She's gonna have a hand on her front hip and lift her, and she's gonna also help and drive it over.

  • So it's the combination between the two.

  • But if you'll see in this, she doesn't check in with her at all.

  • Which wrestlers do we just don't see it.

  • As soon as she grabs her jerks around, she throws her.

  • So that's kind of another thing with the character of switching it to where she's just taking control.

  • Here you can see this hand on Betty is where she's assisting and pushing.

  • This arm is also around her neck, so she's pushing her over, and Allie here is also taking some of it in herself, like she's doing a flip to her back.

  • So show go whoop and land on her back, and she has to drop straight down and land on her back.

  • This is where the timing comes in.

  • If she pushes too soon or her leg is late, you have an off kilter.

  • It doesn't go smooth, and she's the one.

  • At risk is her neck is the one coming over, and the job of Basheer over here is he's trying to always be in the mix without being in the way he'll step over here and then he'll see her lift.

  • And if he's here, he's gonna get landed on and risks alleys, head and neck.

  • And then he knows that a certain point.

  • Okay, you've got to come back over here, out of the way.

  • And now, usually the other tricky part is you have camera in the ring with him.

  • The camera's over here and it's on a steady camera in the ring.

  • So you have a camera operator who's moving around and you have best year who's moving around, and now you have two actresses who are performing and flipping and trying to be aware of where everybody else's But you can see how much this takes together.

  • And no matter what, she's still gonna land on our backs.

  • No matter how padded this is, it doesn't feel good.

  • And it's not a soft pad because you can't hide it.

  • We made ours is nice as we can For them.

  • It's two inches of Haydn's foam, and every wrestler comes in and goes, Oh my God, this is the best resting ring we've ever been in.

  • This is amazing, but it's still it's hard.

  • It's jarring on your body.

  • You train in, rehearse and rehearse and rehearse it.

  • But at the same time it is two actresses doing this, which is pretty incredible.

  • So now you can start to see her.

  • Kind of crazy is coming out this Corio.

  • She's supposed to throw her leg, but she's not supposed to just start to take control.

  • So she's got her in a lock here and now she is grabbing a hold.

  • This isn't This is a correct lock where she actually has her knee joint and she can take control and pivot Her becomes a pivot point and she's gonna pivot her underneath, and Allie starts it and gives a good push at the beginning to help, but again, her head has to clear underneath and get in between her.

  • So Ali has to help and clear herself to get her through alleys coming underneath and you see her head clearing and now she's spotting it.

  • She's got her hands ready to land and then Betty Iss stepping over her.

  • But you also you know, I don't want to step on her fingers.

  • You don't want to kick her.

  • So there's a lot going on between each other's legs and head.

  • She's supposed to put her eight goal in a lock and twist it to appear that she's hurting her, but she doesn't check in to make sure that they're okay.

  • She's trying to check in on the bottom, and Liberty Bell is doing around thing up on top and goes too far.

  • Base Plan B better be in effect.

  • I think the building was 12 stories.

  • Most people are like What's below you.

  • There was concrete below me.

  • There was nothing there, so I am hooked to the helicopter.

  • So there's a line there, which is, you know, good and bad.

  • If anything happens to the helicopter, I'm not getting away from it and give him clear.

  • But if I miss, the skid would just dangle below it.

  • So we did the 1st 2 We put it about where I thought it could catch it.

  • We caught it.

  • I swung and it was good.

  • And then they said We have that piece of the catch.

  • Can we put it out farther?

  • So we could really see you stretch as far as possible.

  • So I said, Do you need me to catch it?

  • And they said, If you can, great.

  • If not, it's okay, we have that.

  • So I put him out another few feet farther and just dove as far as I could, and I just caught it with my fingertips and then slipped under and then dangled below the helicopter so he had to you then come down, hover on the ground while they get me released, and then he can land.

  • This'd is our finale episode of Season two, and we have the Battle royal going, and then our guys come in because they want to say face and they decide to wrestle them.

  • So we have two professional wrestlers that come in Chavo Guerrero Jr being one and you'll see Chavo them betting they'll start to communicate with each other because this in theory, has never been rehearsed.

  • This is on the fly.

  • So what it's meant to do is to show that our actresses have escalated to the to the level at this point to be able to just jump in the ring and call moves to each other and have moves, called to them and be able to be a teammate to them and to be an equal to him.

  • And he is such a good wrestler that she's gonna do her part.

  • He's gonna make her look amazing.

  • He says.

  • We'll do a 12 o'clock.

  • He puts her up to the top.

  • Her hand is right here, basing on him, and then he'll do the same.

  • So show go straight up.

  • If she doesn't help her, £100 becomes, you know, dead weight of lifting £100.

  • So even though he is that strong and he is lifting her, you can see right here her hand is basing on him.

  • He's got her, which makes it really hard.

  • I mean, the rest of their used to it, but normally, when we rehearsed were in sweats or we're in leggings and you can grab the top of the pants and really help.

  • And then we have to remind yourself that we're always only a tard, so there's not much to grab.

  • He's also got his arm right here facing, So she has her shoulder resting on Hiss to take a lot of the weight.

  • So she's got a lot of weight here and a lot of weight here.

  • So he's pushing her by this end by this.

  • So we wanted a version of the head scissor.

  • But knowing that we have the luxury to get to use Taveau and his amazing skills, we could enhance it a little bit.

  • Betty now is the top portion of the head scissor, and we just added an extra spin and let her kind of fly like a bird like she just gets to own it and be Liberty Bell.

  • And he now makes her look incredibly good.

  • And now she's taken control and will flip him as she comes down group down here and he'll flip so that power changes there from him being in control to her.

  • You and Betty getting to just ham it up because Chavo will milk it as long as she needs.

  • And this move.

  • She did a version of this takia earlier in the season, so we've kind of wanted this to be her signature move where she goes on salutes because she's our Liberty Bell and you can see the combination she had to commit blind, run in half, turn and commit and wrap her legs around something that she doesn't see with complete trust that he's going to grab her here she drops down, pushes back up into this, and then it Schultz drove down and come into a pin move to him.

  • I think the fun thing with Glow is You're not doing a fight scene where every move is life, life and death.

  • With this, it is for fun.

  • You have glitter and big hair and leotardo and I mean look at these socks and it's about the fun and is about the show.

  • So every move is about telling the story in making the show bigger and more fun and more interesting for the audience.

  • You'll see the floor will bounce a little bit, and everybody always thinks, Oh, it's like a trampling Oh, it's not.

  • It's metal and then wood planks and then the foam on top.

  • So all that is is the wood just giving a little bit?

  • But it's definitely not like a trampoline.
