About Eric Jacobus

Eric Jacobus Headshot - SunEric is a California-based stuntman who works in film and video games as a performer and fight coordinator. Known for his hard falls, fast hands, and wide variety of kicks, coupled with his penchant for physical comedy, Eric is like a martial arts version of Buster Keaton. Eric is also a D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) action star, an imitator of fighting game characters, and a pioneer of the independent action film movement.

In 2012, Eric and veteran stunt coordinator Clayton J. Barber founded JB Productions and produced multiple award-winning shorts including the Rope A Dope series and Blindsided. Eric also founded the San Francisco-based stunt team The Stunt People in 2001, with whom he produced and performed in over 100 short films and multiple feature films.

Eric’s work behind the camera includes choreographing, shooting, and editing, often delivering entire fight scenes within 24 hours to clients. He also speaks conversational Cantonese and Spanish, with some Mandarin and Japanese to boot.
