While we advance into 2016 with what awaits us in film, we'll still be seeing any number of inspired filmmakers looking to have an impact of their own. Such is the case for actor and martial artist Peter Liciaga, who comes well endowed with numerous commercial, film and theater credits, all in a world he hopes to invite filmgoers in with the forthcoming new martial arts drama, Yes, They Bleed. The plot itself is very compelling and you can learn much more about this production via Indiegogo where Luciaga has officially begun raising money to help pay the performers upon production next month, so CLICK HERE to learn all you need to about this project.
The next video after that comes from filmmaker Joey Min who took to task last year to raise money via crowdfunding The Forgotten Kingdom, a webseries about live-action role players. Min is one of the best and most talented fight choreographer today, having cut his teeth for well over twelve years in martial arts action filmmaking of his own and the project itself is very promising in that regard on top of the overall story. Unfortunately, crowdfunding hit a snag, but that didn't stop Min from raising the money himself, and as such, the folks over at Art School Dropouts have a new sample video to share with a glimpse into what the show will entail.

No Balas al Aire is number six in the playlist - a themed martial arts short for public awareness that uses quirky comedy in dealing with a major issue with respect to firearms in Puerto Rico - It's entirely in Spanish and while the humor is mostly regional in context, the short does deliver its desired effect courtesy of director Wildchild Gil Sanabria who also co-stars.
