THE HIT LIST - May 9, 2016
The second is for the upcoming German martial arts drama, Passage, featuring Andy Long Nguyen and filmmaker and fellow independent actioner Lorenz Hideyoshi-Ruwwe. The specifics are pretty nil but Nguyen and Hideyoshi-Ruwwe have always (ALWAYS) turned in solid work and quick YouTube search can easily verify this if you fancy it. In the meantine, Passage just underwent a private cast and crew screening and will hit the internet soon!
The ensuing Youtube playlist beneath consists of a cool little knife-fighting conceptual sequence from Thailand-based The Action Guys, a new test fight skit from Team STAMA in Switzerland, and the gang over at Ismahawk getting their Marvel fandom on a la First Person Iron Man. The last is a 2012 shortfilm from the folks over at Martial Club with DayDreamers, and incidentally, a theme easily understandable if you've ever immersed yourself something so much that it literally transported you elsewhere as it it actor and martial artist, Andy Le.
Yuan is joined by Tamiko Brownlee along with Natascha Hopkins, Cassie Lee Minnick, Heather Bonomo, Thekla Hutyrova, Elisabeth Carpenter and Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez. Enjoy!
Dayside Productions is up next and it appears they've taken upon the bright idea of turning Nintendo mainstay, Link, into the protagonist of his own gritty Hong Kong cop thriller with down-and-dirty MMA fighting. The project itself is very small scale and the acting is silly, but their hearts are in the right place here as adapting The Legend Of Zelda into something of an Asian crime flick is hilarious, albeit very entertaining, and the choreography isn't that bad. So, I'm pretty pleased enough to share it.
