Last night myself and The Dark Crew filmed the footage for my soon to be released DVD titled: "Too Deadly for Primetime! Vol 1"
The shoot lived up to the name of the DVD in every way possible and I came VERY close to getting seriously injured in 2 of the 5 truly EXTREME and dangerous escapes that will be featured on this DVD.
The overview of last night saw me facing burning alive, suffocation, impaling by steel spikes, strangulation, and having my eyes burnt out and my brain fried by 2 model rocket motors mounted inside a metal helmet that was locked over my head (these were on a 60 second countdown to ignition).
Possibly the wildest and "closest" call I had was when I was handcuffed and WELDED into a wooden box that was filled with bags of shredded paper from a document shredder and then 2 electric BBQ starters were pushed into the box via holes in the front.
The BBQ starters were plugged in the INSTANT they were pushed into the box.
I had to get out before the BBQ starters ingited the paper shreds and they in turn burst into flames inside the box turning it into a virtual furnace that would have burned me alive.
Unlike my Cremation Chamber escape, where the fire was on the outside of a vault heating it up, this one had the fire on the INSIDE where I was!
It was easily, next the the rocket motor "Death Mask", the most dangerous escape we filmed and the paper did actually burst into flames before I was actually out of the box.
I came a split second away from being cooked.
A VERY scary escape to be sure!
After the footage is all properly arranged and the music tracks are added, (should take about a month), we will have a DVD of the most lethal and unique original extreme escapes ever done by anyone.
Finally, an "extreme" escape DVD that will actually be just that.
