THE HIT LIST - February 1, 2016
After that is a new video directly from Stunt Fighter Indonesia, a label hailing from stuntman Cep Hendra whose channel now hosts an awesome new test fight experiment in Pencak Silat between performers Reza and Resta. The last time many of us have seen Silat action this pure is The Raid franchise while it's worth noting that both films have certainly helped put Indonesia back on the map for contemporary action cinema, and so it's nice to see performances as spirited as these.
The last trailer comes with some intense and heavy visuals courtesy of the University of Texas at Austin's UT3D program, utilIzed accordingly by multifaceted filmmaker and VFX artist, Deepak Chetty. His newest shorfilm has long hit the ground running now in the form of Hard Reset, the UT3D's first MFA thesis project shot in stereoscopic 3D with a story focused a detective forced to choose where his loyalty lies when the android he loves falls subject to a virus that turns her into a sentient being.
Oryan Landa, Josephine McAdam and Holt Boggs star, and the project has already become an award-winning feat having earned its latest acclaim late last month at the Advanced Imaging Society’s 7th Annual Awards Ceremony for Best 3D Short. And judging by the trailer itself following its teaser from 2014, I'd say that award was well deserved, because special effects are absolutely stunning. Films like Blade Runner and Natural City are easily worth comparing.
Enjoy the trailers!
The last of the promotional goods come courtesy of independent filmmaker Noel Braham who is well into his film travels as of 2014 through his production banner Noel Braham Entertainment. His latest shortfilm with co-director Pokey Spears of Pokey Spears Productions in the form of, Star Wars: Exile, comes in the good graces of its record-breaking more mainstream backing a la The Force Awakens, and with Disney and Lucasfilm in tow for at least four or five more films, Brahman's efforts are far from late.

And on that note, feast your eyes on the latest stills and poster before then!
Power Rangers: Dino Charge co-star Yoshua Sudarso stars here and delivers one of the best performances ever seen on film, and that's about all the lip-service I can offer at this point. Your best option is to see it for yourself and just KNOW you're in for a sweet, sweet piece of film.
