LBP Stunts Presents: BRENDON HUOR vs. JAMES YOUNG

A flurry of fists set the tone between Brendon Huor and James Young in their new test fight, dir. by Emmanuel Manzanares

Whatever happens, don't ever take your eyes off of independent filmmaker and LBP Stunts Chicago founding member Emmanuel Manzanres. Because at the end of the day, Manzanares is a friggin machine when it comes to putting his direction and choreography skills to the test, working with innumerous professionals of the stunt field both in and outside his own team. I've covered his action gems more times than I can count on my blog as Manzanares has become more and more prolific over the years through the blogosphere with his contributions to the independent and mainstream action cinema world, and that coverage continues this week with his latest treat featuring performances by Brendon Huor and James Young.

The new test fight marks the latest collaboration between Huor and Young, both well and highly respected stuntmen and fight choreographers to date with respective credits including indie action faves such as Thousand Pounds Action Company's Naruto Shippuden: Dreamer's Fight, as well as last year's Wonder Woman shortfilm nod, First Impressions, and the Zoƫ Bell action headliner, Raze. With any luck, this won't be the last time we see these two together working on something that will blow our minds in due time. And on one programming note, if things go as planned, Film Combat Syndicate contributing film critic, Thousand Pounds co-founder and actor Darren Bailey may likely be able to share an inteview with Young joined by fellow stuntman/performer Aaron Toney upon the forthcoming release of their latest work on Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Time will tell if this will be possible though, particularly since peoples' schedules are very tight, but keep it in mind nonetheless. In the meantime check out Huor and Young in the embed below where you may also subscribe to LBP Stunts Chicago for more awesome videos.
