A few facts about us

The biggest stunts and special effects company with its own film studio for Switzerland and southern Germany

1291 Productions GmbH is a stunts and special effects company and also offers the largest film studio in Switzerland. The 1291 team consists of nationally and internationally renowned and award-winning action directors, stunt coordinators, stunt performers and Certified Special Effect (SFX) experts.

Oliver Keller began his professional film career at the age of 16 as a stuntman for the film and television industry in Europe. After gaining acclaim in the European market, he followed his dream of becoming successful in Hollywood. Where the film and television industry began and continues to flourish today. He packed two bags and with his vision and conviction he boarded a plane to Los Angeles.

After successful 21 years in Los Angeles, Oliver Keller returned to Switzerland and founded 1291 Productions GmbH. The 1291 team puts safety first and with a clean safety record is the only stunt and special effects company in Switzerland with a recognized insurance.

Shortly after his arrival, his talent was recognized by several top stuntmen and coordinators. They took him under their experienced wings and further trained his already learned craft of stunt work.

In more than two successful decades in Hollywood, he had never forgotten his humble beginnings and roots and decided to return to the European film industry. Particularly in his home country of Switzerland, his aim is to take industry to the next level. Since December 2020, Oliver and his family have returned to Switzerland.

Frequently asked questions

When did you start specializing in stunts in Switzerland?

We have been offering stunts in Switzerland for over 30 years without interruption, since 1991 to be precise, and since then we have been able to constantly expand our experience. During these years we have not only been active in the Swiss stunt industry but also internationally. We have worked on productions such as Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Suicide Squad and Rookie and have now been involved in the biggest stunt projects in Switzerland. Be it the new Netflix movie "Early Birds", Tatort, TSCHUGGER the Undertaker and many more. This makes us the only company in Switzerland that can compete at Hollywood level and has the know-how for such productions.

Are stunts dangerous in Switzerland?

Stunts always involve a certain amount of risk, whether in Switzerland or internationally. However, thanks to the 1291 team's more than 100 years of experience, this risk can be minimized to a minimum. We have professionals for all types of stunts and can therefore cover the entire spectrum and perform all types of stunts safely. Our highly professional and trained stunt coordinators and stunt performers enjoy every action and are constantly undergoing further training.

What are the biggest Swiss projects in which you have been involved with stunts?

We can proudly list some big names here. Let's start with a Swiss classic, in 2005 we were allowed to pass on our knowledge on the movie "Mein Name ist Eugen" and we were also involved in the thriller "Spital in Angst" from 2001. Current completed film projects include the first Swiss Netflix film "Early Birds", "Bon Schuur Ticino", "Sew Torn" and Jakobs Ross. We also have our fingers in the pie with Swiss series, be it "TSCHUGGER", "Tatort", "Die Beschatter" or "Alter Ego". We are very grateful for the trust placed in us and for further projects.

Do you only offer stunts in Switzerland?

We can answer this question with a clear conscience with no. Our company specializes not only in stunts, but in action of all kinds. Not only in Switzerland, but also internationally. Whether stunts, special effects, action props, studios, production vehicles, camera vehicles and much more. Our motto: "Imagination has no limit," so we always find a solution to realize your ideas and get the maximum out of your project.

What was your biggest Swiss stunt to date?

This is not an easy question, it depends entirely on the viewer. The stunt that certainly comes into question is a double descender fall of 175m from the dam in the Verzasca Valley. For those who are now wondering what a descender is: a descender is a kind of fall from a height where you are secured by a thin rope. However, the fall feels like a free fall and looks just as spectacular. This fall was made for the Bollywood movie "Doom 3", which had the highest budget ever for a Bollywood movie.
What was also spectacular was the jump from a flying helicopter onto a moving train. You can watch this spectacular stunt in our current stuntreel.
