This project took awhile to get out due to our editor work on another youtube project that was his priority. But here it is folks. Check out Tommy's Joker. Better than Heath Ledger right?
This was a freestyle shoot. I think it turned out good, personally. I'm actually hoping to do more of these shorts with the same character. If you do see any inconsistencies, its because everything was basically thrown in at the last moment. So, I apologize for that. But here it is, enjoy...
In 2007, we made a short called Ninja vs Pirates for the Anime Expo in Long Beach. It was to promote the live stage performance of...well...Ninja vs Pirates xD. We film only the teaser and stated that if we ever hit 100,000 views, we would finish it. Well, we unexpectedly received over 200,000 hits and we were planning on filming the rest of it either way. But unfortunately, the car that our costumes were in, was stolen, and we lost motivation to restart the whole project.
Years later (now), we decided to revamp our youtube channel and one of the videos we decided to reshoot was in fact, Ninja vs Pirates.
Here is the original:

Ever since the team lost the privilege of using a martial arts gym, it was hard for us to get together and work, train, and film. But for the past couple of months, we've been meeting once a week and agreed that we need to get back into business. Our goal is to inspire everyone to achieve their own goal. We want to show through example, thus creating a new channel on youtube. Check out the latest video and please subscribe for new videos that will be released every week.
Robbie met this guy name Christo Garcia who was working on a treatment for a tv show. They got together and started pushing it towards the filming stage. He'd asked me to help handle the choreo and of course I didn't turn him down. I have to say the shoot was a lil...strange...haha but the trailer and fight came out better than I'd expected.
Here's the trailer
I stunt doubled a dude for a music video a few months back for Superhumanoids. Though I don't know anything about the band or the actor, it was a fun experience. Anyways, here's the video. Let's see if any of you can really spot me.Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNrnQmOOQGwI know it seems I've been missing in action and not doing much lately, but I have been coordinating a few stuff here and there. I'm also getting back into writing my unfinished projects. I have a short web series, action short, and a feature in the works. Hopefully, when one of my stunt jobs come through, I'll be able to finance my projects and get them filmed.
My mom returned two weeks ago from South Carolina after my grandma's funeral and memorial. Last week, we had another ceremony for her at a local temple here in Long Beach, Cali. The temple is named Wat Vipassanaram or more known as Wat Arap, easier right? Hahha. So anyways, I didn't get a big enough memory card for my new camera yet so I was only able to film as much as I wanted. And I didn't even get to edit and put the video together either. But I promise the video will be up soon.
Also, next weekend is my 3rd Degree Black Belt test. I've been training real hard for the test. I'm gonna have friends come and document the whole event. Wish me luck!
Iono if any of you have seen this but it cracked me up so hard. I still watch it almost every chance I get.
I was on my way back from having some delicious Korean BBQ with my
masters and other instructors from my TKD school. I pull up to a red
light and BAM! A car hits me from behind. The funny thing was, when I
heard the car hit my bike, I first thought in my head, "what the hell
sound was that?". But as soon as that thought cleared my head, I
realized in was already in mid-air. Luckily, I've practiced the dive
roll enough to where it becomes a natural reflex. So that's what I did,
and it saved my butt. I finished the dive roll, stood up, and went to
sit down on the side walk. That car that hit me backed up so I assumed
the dude was gonna pull over and see if I was over. But I was wrong, bastard was backing up so he could take off. I had two witnesses, one
which stayed behind to look after me and another who took off in his car
chasing the other one down. How cool is that? A stranger chasing
someone else for another stranger. The sheriff, ambulance, and fire
truck came to check up on me but I said I was good, just a few small
injuries here and there. Although I am limping, I can't raise my right
arm, and I may have refractured my left wrist from when I was a kid.
Anyways, I'm good everybody, I just wanted to share my experience.
So here it is folks, the first ten minute piece of Project Purgatory: Beijing. This is a prequel to Project Purgatory, directed by Kantz. We shot the first 30 minutes of the script in about 7 days. Kantz is looking for investors for the movie so we can reshoot and finish the project. The whole team got to work on the project too. Xin and Johnny landed leading roles, Robbie got a supporting role, Tommy and Danny had small parts, and the rest took care of stunts. I also had to call friends to do stunts for free. And me, I was hired to do choreography but I was surprised when Kantz let me take care of all the action completely. This was my first time doing action directing for someone else's project. Anyways, too much jabbering. Enjoy xD
