Rocky Capella

About Me

Stunt Coordinator, Director, Stuntman, Driver and Actor. Born and raised in the San Francisco area, Rocky began boxing at the age of six, working with his father, who was a Fighter Pilot and boxed in the U.S. Navy. Rocky met actor Robert Conrad and got into the business through his boxing background. He lived in LA for several years but wanted to start the stunt business in Northern California. Rocky moved back to the Bay Area and started the San Francisco Bay Area Stuntman's Association. He also opened GYM WEST boxing gym and training facility (named after Bob Conrad's character in Wild Wild West), continuing to box, train other boxers and referee AAU boxing matches while pursuing his stunt career.

Although coordinating and directing the stuntwork in several Italian films early in his career, Rocky got his big break from George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic when filming the special effects for Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Rocky doubled Bob Hoskins and stunt coordinated all of the Special Effects stuntwork for the movie. This immediately led him to stunt coordinate and double Kevin Pollack for Ron Howard's film, Willow, at ILM. He has continued to work with ILM, coordinating the stunts of dozens of movies and commercials for ILM as well as other premiere effects houses like 3210 Studios, most recently coordinating the EFX stuntwork for Jurassic World and Cannibal Reign at the studio.

Rocky has expanded his career to encompass most aspects of the film industry, having stunt coordinated, directed, or performed in over 600 productions. These shows include feature films, television shows, commercials, Motion Capture Video Game work, music videos and shows for the automobile industry. Rocky has had the honor to be the stunt coordinator on award-winning projects for directors including The Wachowskis, George Lucas, Tim Burton, Stephen Soderberg, Tate Taylor, Francis Coppola, Gus Van Zant, Ron Howard and Chris Columbus to name a few.

Rocky began an affiliate company, the RCP stunt group, in 1990 to strengthen his ties back in Los Angeles and a few years later began the RCP Charities as an opportunity to give back to the community. The RCP Charities "Caddyshack-style" Stuntman's Scramble Annual Golf Tournament, held in Carmel, California, is considered one of the most fun events in the business, giving to the many charitable programs and educational scholarships which the RCP Charities has created.
