THE HIT LIST - May 1, 2017
As always, we begin with a nifty round of stunt reels from some of today's budding and top stunt performers, starting with Kate Cochran, Tien Hoang, Sam Situmorang, Mustafa Bulut, Stephen Koepfer, Jennifer Badger, Joshua Pereira, Billy Bussey, John Lyke, Joseph Roark, Kemet Black Whitlow and, Sergei Dmitriev, Evan Dane Taylor and Ben Van Huis.
I don't always share music videos, except for when something really catches my eye with an added stunt performance element. And I don't frequent music videos often when I sift through videos so I have to credit stuntman and filmmaker Greg Rementer for his latest jazzy entry, Trust In Me, which he directed, and featuring recording artist and wife Erin Rementer. Check it out and you might get an idea about the inspiration that initially drew this vision, Disney films and such 😉.
Alrighty, time to trade fists and kicks in this week's round of mini-action flicks from shortest to longest, and the first brings us a few re-uploaded snippets of Jeff Lunzaga's 2014 hyper reality short, Hetja: the first of a shorts trilogy combining action and comedy in an "anything goes" formula for improv and impromptu guillera-style cinema here and now partly sampled by performers Darren Holmquist, Ryan Liguid, Bridger Fox and Evelyn Lesaca.
From there, Stanton Chong - by way of this weekend's festivities at the Film Fu Fight Festival - makes his return to the Hit List this week representing Eunoia Creations with a 'Game' of his own and with none other than stunt player Sean Kohnke beating up a LOT of Canadians...and all for a good cause!
Last and FAR from least is the first of a 2-part inspired fan adaptation of DC property, Black Lightining pitting our title hero against Tobias Whale and the 100 gang with the mayor's life hanging in the balance. Director Choice Skinner stars from his own script co-written by co-star James Moten-Black, and with Dimitri Morantus, Jay Hunter, Ishida Sachiko, Chase Baker, Daffany McGaray Clark and Michael Anthony Bianco also starring.
Last week's entries should guarantee you a good way to pass the time if you need to catch up or if you're new to the Hit List...in which case, Howdy!
