Željko Božić
29. September 1974 - 7. Jun 2006

Kaskaderi su ljudi koji rizikuju svoje živote kako bi zaštitili kolege a publici pružili prizore zbog kojih se film razlikuje od života. Ipak, kaskaderska veština i efekti su primećeni samo u spektaklima, iako su prisutni u svakom filmu.

Željko Božić je bio važan čovek. Kaskaderski zanat je kod nas zamro sa krizom filma, kada se pojavio Željko i omogućio snimanje scena koje su do tada bile nemoguće. On je u našu kinematografiju uneo veštine novog doba, konstantno radeći na nabavci moderne tehnike i savlađivanju novih veština. Kasakder iz Srbije postao je poznat po svojim angažmanima širom sveta, i priznat osvajanjem nagrada na festivalima Moskvi i Beogradu.

Željkov Internet sajt je bio najkompletnija baza podataka o dešavanjima u našem filmu.

27. aprila 2006 Božić je teško povređen prilikom izvođenja jedinstvene i ekstremno opasne vratolomije kolima. Skočio je kolima sa mosta sa visine od 15 metara u reku, ostavši u kolima prilikom pada. Ovo je trebalo da bude promocija Koloseum internacionalnog festivala kasakdera koji je trebalo da se održi u septembru mesecu ove godine. Preminuo je nešto više od mesec dana kasnije, 7. juna, ostavivši za sobom ženu i dvoje dece.
