Need anymore proof that the independent filmmaking industry is upping its game? You need not look further than the latest shortfilm from the folks at Intelligent Artists and indie filmmaker Leo Kei Angelos titled First Impressions, produced and co-written by George H. Ruiz. The project began earlier this year with the stunt professionals over at Thousand Pounds Action Company training lead actress and YouTube personality, Hailey Bright.
I initially wanted to tease some of this earlier on, but unfortunately I wasn't allowed to as things were still developing. Conclusively though, it was worth the wait, thanks in part to solid editing, and the incredible action direction from stunt coordinator Darren Bailey, and choreographers Vonzell Carter, Alvin Hsing and Brendon Huor.
