Adrenaline Over Fear

Kimberly Shannon Murphy has been a professional Hollywood stunt performer since 2004. Since then, she has accumulated over 100 stunt credits having doubled some of the biggest actresses in Hollywood including Cameron Diaz, Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Kaitlin Olson, Angelina Jolie and Dani Ruah (just to name a few). Her most recent blockbuster was “Once upon a time in Hollywood” where she did the final fight with Brad Pitt. Kimberly still loves performing and is now also starting to stunt coordinate. You can also catch her in the recent internet smash #bitchbossfightchallenge, where during quarantine Zoe Bell got stunt performers and actors together for this epic video.



“Train as hard as you can. Coming in with a speciality is definitely helpful.”

“It’s so important as a stunt person to know your camera angles.”

“Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.”

Today’s conversation is a crash course into the journey of an animator. It’s about how a young man who never met an art medium he didn’t like chose to pursue a highly competitive and challenging career and truly thrived in his art form. We follow Joshua Beveridge’s early memories in a home filled with art history books, as a kid always painting and drawing or sculpting, to attending a College of Art and Design to being the Animator Director on “Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse”.

Joshua Beveridge is a Head of Character Animator at Sony Pictures Imageworks. His other titles have included Animation Director and Supervising Animator. Beveridge earned his BA in Computer Animation from the Ringling College of Art and Design before landing his first professional job on Disney’s adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Since then he’s worked on various teams as a Character Animator, Supervising Animator or Lead Animator in popular films such as “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Hotel Transylvania 2,” “Arthur Christmas,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” and “Storks.” His work on Warner Bros “I Am Legend,” starring Will Smith and Alice Braga, garnered a 2008 Visual Effects Society Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Animated Character in a Live action Motion Picture. Beveridge’s latest animated feature film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has broken the mold (again) for telling stories.

“There’s nothing impulsive about animation.”

“If you are afraid in art that’s usually an indication that you’re on the right path.”
