Working on a kung fu web series! 'Sword Play'

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I'm working on a kung fu web series in the same vein as Sister Street Fighter right now. The scripts have been done for a while but now I'm in the process of putting a team together to choreograph fight scenes and working on the technical elements.

 

This is going to be our lead character. The video was made from a fun photo-shoot we did during shooting for Bruce Lee Lives. This was a fun little shoot and I hope you dig it.

Thanks to an amazing response to our call for votes, I will be moving forward with an action series hopefully to be shot later on this fall. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun to watch and hopefully you guys will enjoy it! :)

Sorry, but I dont see myself watching this & would have voted no

The lead looks uneasy in front of the camera and awkward in her movements. Does she even do martial arts?

Ah I found the first video from your link.

Who doesn't love gorgeous ladies doing martial arts but I do wonder like Derwood as she doesn't look like she knows what she's doing.

edit: I see the videos are up there now

I felt exactly the same way and other videos in their serie little sense to me. They play like pornos without any sex.

I can't help but think this series will just be a cheese laden attempt that will only serve to set the genre back.

Yeah, I love the idea, but... Though the SISTER STREETFIGHTER films are cheesy, the thing that attracts us to them is the fact that Etsuko "Sue" Shihomi is a fantastic martial artist. It looks like your lady friend has "the look", but no martial arts skills. A big red flag is when she stands there with nunchaku on her shoulder... but never swings them once. :squigglemouth: There should be a law- Nunchaku should never be picked up unless they are going to be swung (especially when it's by an attractive lady).

Don't be fooled into thinking that a lack of skills will just add to the fun cheese factor. That's rarely the case.

Hate to sound so negative though. This feedback shouldn't be taken as a defeat though, but as constructive criticism that can help point you in the right direction.

Well we are working with choreographers and it looks like many of the people we are auditioning, (from the same school,) are indeed solid martial artists. As for the Sister Street Fighter movies, it was meant in terms of storyline and some of the cheesiness, (like the sai through the head, which I love dearly,) but it would also probably be similar to Ninja the Mission Force.

It's a work in progress but I don't think it will make or break the genre regardless like one suggested. (Nor is it "porno without sex" either.)

Right on man. I'm totally open to see what you come up with. Good luck with everything. :bigsmile:

We took a break from training to make this fun video at the beach. Hopefully you guys will get a kick out of it. We're a long way away from being ready to shoot the main series but we're getting there! :)

Why thank you! Steve, (Ninja I,) actually did a whole minute of that laugh but we only used the best part due to time constraints! As for Evelyn, she's getting better everyday and is really loving the training and the shoots! :)

Since Halloween is a coming we thought we'd make a kung-fu zombie video. More Godfrey Ho ninjas and the powerful POWER NINJA joins the carnage! Hopefully you guys will get a charge out of this one! :)
