Bandidas

In 2004, I was hired by a production company to be a technical advisor and to train actress Salma Hayek for a role in a new movie “Bandidas” to be released in January, 2006.

I was flown to L.A. to train Miss Hayek for the role of a bank robber who happens to be an expert with knives.

After the training in L.A., I was flown to the movie set in Mexico City to further train Ms. Hayek and to act as a technical advisor during filming.

A couple of weeks later after leaving Mexico City, I was then flown to Durango, Mexico where I performed the actual throwing on location for the more difficult throwing scenes.

I also designed and crafted some very special throwing knives for Miss Hayek and actor Sam Shepard to use in the film.

These are some pics that I took while working with Salma Hayek and Dwight Yoakam while filming the motion picture.
