About Cory DeMeyers
Cory DeMeyers, has had a diverse career as a Stuntman with over 130+ Film & Television credits to his name. Cory is a former Red Bull Parkour World Champion as well as a 2020 Taurus World Stunt Award recipient for his stunt work on Tarantino’s Oscar-nominated film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. As a professional athlete, Cory directed and produced action sports content for several clients around the world ultimately leading him to co-direct a feature-length documentary titled From Here To There, a freerunning documentary, about his journey to the Red Bull Podium in 2013.
Working on set around several high-profile directors such as JJ Abrahams, James Cameron, Henry Joost & Rel Schulman, Zac Snyder, Ed Zwick and 2nd Unit Director Kevin Scott has inspired and fueled his passion for filmmaking, leading him to step out and direct his first narrative short film, Danny Boy.
Old-school Francis and his new-school accomplice Danny have it all planned out: a heist to make them rich, thanks to inside information that their mutual friend Stevie B has provided. Only plans are apt to change, along with Francis and Danny’s relationship when homophobic attitudes and murderous tendencies meet in a head-on collision. Stevie B said they would make a killing, He never said they’d get along.
