FILM ARMOURER CREW
Our Armourers are also people friendly team players
We aim to provide Armourers who are equally proficient with movie guns and with people. People skills are a pre-requisite with all of our Sabre Armourers in addition to their weapon related knowledge and skills.
It is our philosophy that as well as helping to keep cast and crew safe the Armourers also need to work happily and cohesively with a wide range of cast and crew personalities. Our people are uniquely equipped with this trait having not just Weapons, Military and Police experience but also numerous other instructional, leadership and genuinely people related skills.
Sabre has access to wide range of additional Military and Police subject matter experts who can work alongside us as advisors and extras.
