THE HIT LIST - March 28, 2016
Getting things off to an excellent start this week is actor and stuntman Eric Jacobus with his latest movelist performance attributed to Tekken game villain, Heihaichi Mishima, followed by reels from filmmaker and action director Bueno, stunt performers Ryan Robertson, tricker Vellu Saarela, Aviel Ayoung, Curt Wheeler, Nick Stanner, and Steve Bravler, and a fan reel knitted with scenes attributed to celebrated Hong Kong Cinema legend, actor and film star Yuen Biao.
As for promotional bits, we have a few posters making the rounds for sometime now for an upcoming independent project involving actor and stuntman Wildchild Gil Sanabria titled City Breach. The posters boast something of a cop action thriller of sorts and there's no other information available, but you never get bored watching Sanabria in action, and if you've seen his performance as the seemingly unbeatable hitman in José Manuel's directorial debut, El Testigo, you'll know exactly what I mean. Feel free to follow his page for more details and content.
Next up is a teaser clip from a nifty little upcoming action short from the UK director Benedict Sanderson titled Kung Fu Darling. Details are nil in the story and setting overall but UK talent, actress and martial artist Zara Phythian shows no difficulty in selling this little gem properly, courtesy of choreography duo, Joey Ansah and actress and co-star Katrina Durden (Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist/Resurrection). Moreover, this is the first I've seen of Sanderson's work and the teaser alone stipulates he's getting my martial arts fanboy attention appropriately.
First up is, Hammergirl, a piece I still pride myself on after all these years of following fight choreographer Vlad Rimburg's work, and the second comes right from the bowels of EMC Monkeys with a test fight of their own with Tony Sre and Bryan Sloyer.
Continuing the playlist is a little something sitting online as of early last year called Kali Diaries, the first in a series by actress and stuntwoman Lauren Mary Kim - better known nowadays as Élodie Yung's stunt double for the role of Elektra in Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix. She's been grooming herself as a practitioner of FMA as of late from what I understand, and I've only recently caught onto it as she's recently begun teasing some more videos to come, and I look forward to sharing them on here in due time.
