The Commvault GO keynote lineup of "More than Ready" speakers
Jimmy Chin – Jimmy Chin is an Academy Award winning filmmaker, National Geographic photographer and mountain sports athlete known for his ability to capture extraordinary imagery and stories while climbing and skiing in extremely high-risk environments. In 2002, he secured a breakthrough assignment to be the cinematographer for a high-profile National Geographic-sponsored trek across Tibet's Chang Tang Plateau. In 2006, he was part of the first American team to ski off the summit of Mount Everest. Chin has garnered numerous photography awards and, as a filmmaker, brings an authentic and unique perspective to his storytelling. His 2015 film "Meru" won the coveted Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and was on the 2016 Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary. In 2019, he won an Oscar for directing (along with his wife Chai) "Free Solo."
"When you and your cameras are right next to someone attempting to free-solo the 3,000 foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, you better be ready for anything. If you aren't, you might miss a breathtaking shot or put yourself and others at risk," said Chin. "I look forward to sharing what I have learned in preparing to film in extremely high-risk environments – lessons which will help Commvault GO attendees better prepare to take on their own tough data challenges."
Chloe Bruce – Chloe Bruce is a professional martial artist, fitness guru and stuntwoman. Trained in martial arts, weapons and wirework, she is a certified dive master and rock climber, as well as an experienced choreographer. She won her first World Championship at the age of 14 and holds the Guinness World Record for most kicks in one minute and most scorpion kicks in one minute. As a stunt double, Bruce has appeared in more than 15 movies (including "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Mission Impossible – Fall Out," "Blade Runner – 2049," and "Star Wars – The last Jedi"); 15 TV shows (including "Game of Thrones," "Black Mirror," and "Into the Badlands,"); and 14 commercials. She has performed as a stunt double for Daisy Ridley, Michelle Lin, Zoe Saldana, Rene Russo and more.
"Since I first started learning martial arts as a child, I have worked to make myself ready to achieve, if not the impossible, then the improbable," said Bruce. "This intense preparation has enabled me to realize some of my proudest achievements, from setting the record for most scorpion kicks in one minute to doing stunts as Gamora, 'the most dangerous woman in the universe.' At Commvault GO I will share what I have learned over the years on how to fully prepare yourself to achieve your goals and be a backup hero."
Bobby Holland Hanton – Hanton, a 33-year-old stuntman, has recently worked on "Thor Ragnarok," "Avengers Infinity War," "Avengers End Game," "Mission Impossible 6," and "Solo: A Star Wars Story." He has also performed in blockbuster action films such as "Wonder Woman," "Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens," "Skyfall," "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Spectre," "Thor," "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises," "Quantum of Solace," "Harry Potter," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Captain America," Oscar winning "Inception," and "Game of Thrones." Hanton has performed as a stunt double for Henry Cavill, Chris Pine, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Daniel Craig, Ryan Reynolds, Channing Tatum, Jake Gyllenhaal, David Beckham and more.
"When I decided to become a stuntman, I spent four years training in kickboxing, swimming, high diving, scuba diving and other relevant disciplines before working professionally full time," said Hanton. "This training gave me the expertise and peace of mind to do dangerous stunts as if I were truly a superhero or a crime fighting secret service agent. Whether you are a stuntman like me, preparing to do a high dive through a car, or a business or IT leader who needs to fight off ransomware attacks, many of the same rules apply on how to be completely ready to handle your next challenge."
