Hey, my name is Rustic Bodomov (Rustic B for short). I am pursuing the career of a hollywood stuntman and actor. My physical background lies in judo, taekwondo, parkour, and martial arts tricking. My taste in film stems from Dark, Gothic, and Horror movies and music. I am also a big fan of well-made action films.. Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, and Jet Li captured my imagination and inspired me as a kid.
I love filmmaking, photography, and writing. I speak fluent Russian, English, and some Japanese (I want to live and work in the far East sometime in the future). Currently I live and work in Los Angeles, California. I have been working in the Hollywood film industry for 3 years. I act, do my own stunts, train, and create my own film/photo/music projects in my spare time. I hope you enjoy what you find on my site..and leave some feedback on my facebook page and twitter!
MY STORY: I was born in Russia and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I’ve always been interested in the martial arts. I started learning Judo at the age of 10, and took up TaeKwonDo at 14. At 16 I started training Parkour, Freerunning and Martial Arts Tricking. In 2008, at the age of 17, I won the Pennsylvania state Judo championships, and moved away to Scotland for college. There, I founded Dundee Parkour (DUPK), and was fortunate enough to help the UK parkour and tricking communities expand.
With a background in filming and editing my own training videos and showreels, I started a small production company called Kouro Media. For the next few years my friends and I had fun exploring film-making by making random videos and short films, with genres ranging from intense action to slapstick comedy. Acting as impromptu producer/director, stunt coordinator, actor, and stuntman, I picked up some valuable lessons that I try and hold close to this day.
I moved to Los Angeles in 2011 to pursue a career in the action film industry. I have been fortunate to work on films both big and small, and I’ve now decided to share some of my stories with you. I do hope you enjoy what you find on my site, and don’t hesitate to get in touch.
MY GOALS: As a filmmaker, my goal is to capture some of our most dark and primal questions. As a writer, my goal is to show you a glimpse of what goes on in my head. As a performer, my goal is to entertain. As an athlete and instructor, my goal is to pass on some of my knowledge so the willing can learn. And as a human being, my goal is to try and stay true to myself and my readers, so that we may all grow.
Now enjoy these random pictures..and make sure you stop by the blog, while I figure out the video and photography pages!
