Rob Hayter is unequivocally one of the most professional, dynamic and creative stunt coordinators I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Rob always thinks outside the box but is constantly aware of how things will photograph. He has the kind of inherent understanding for cinematography that can’t be learned. It’s clear Rob loves what he does and that passion shows up on screen every time. He’s also diligent when it comes to safety. The entire set feels confident when Rob’s running the show. But I think Rob’s greatest quality may be his attitude — he approaches everything with such enthusiasm, it’s positively infectious.
Rob is the consummate professional. He understands what the client is trying to achieve and uses his expertise and skill to make it happen. He is always very conscientious about safety and is well respected by all who have the opportunity to work with him. On top of that, he has the most amazing personality - even tempered, considerate and attuned to everything around him.
