Chad followed with the film’s sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2, with Reeves reprising the title role, joined by Common and Laurence Fishburne, and Chad again at the helm. The film was released in February 2017 and was again a box-office and critical success.

Chad is in development with Highlander also for Lionsgate. The film is a reboot of the 1986 cult classic Highlander picture that starred Christopher Lambert.

Chad came from a martial art background. He entered the film field as a stunt performer at the age of 24 as a stunt double on The Crow where he doubled the late Brandon Lee. The greatest break for Chad as a stuntman came when he doubled for Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. From there, he moved onto fight choreography,stunt coordinating and 2nd unit directing. He worked on titles including Wild Wild West, The Replacements, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, Van Helsing, Constantine, xXx: State of the Union, and 300.

He has worked as 2nd unit director on Captain America: Civil War, The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Brothers Grimsby, Hitman: Agent 47, Escape Plan, After Earth, The Expendables 2, Safe, and Ninja Assassin.

With partner David Leitch, Chad opened the action design company 87Eleven in 2006.

EVAN SCHIFF (Editor, SCA Alumnus)

From action epics to indie films, Evan Schiff is an editor with a diverse range of experience. Originally from Syracuse, NY, Evan moved to LA to attend the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts. Between classes he worked part-time at Stan Winston Studio, eventually becoming their in-house editor.

After USC and thanks to two study abroad semesters in Madrid, Evan landed a dream job as an assistant editor on Guillermo del Toro's Pan’s Labyrinth, and then a year later on Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. Soon after, he was hired as the associate editor on Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and continued editing at Bad Robot for several years afterwards. Evan was the Animatic Editor on Baby Driver, working closely with Edgar Wright during pre-production to time out storyboards with each of the songs in the film.

Evan got his editing break with Joe Lynch's Everly, followed soon after by the indie romance Southside With You. In 2015, he landed the job of cutting John Wick: Chapter 2 for director Chad Stahelski, and then teamed up with him again in 2018 for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.

After graduation Mark worked for many creative and inspirational mentors with his first sound supervising credit on Tango and Cash. He continued to hone a skill set that has permitted him to sound design, mix or supervise a diverse slate of films earning Academy Award nominations for Face Off, Star Trek, and Unstoppable.
