THE CHALLENGER (a martial arts short film)
#1

This is less self-promotion than me wanting to help promote a short film I just helped out for some test shoots prior to production.



I've seen a silent rough cut of it and it's awesome.



It premieres online on Oct 12.

Looks like it could be good.



We'll have to look for it in a few weeks.

Got to see the finished film last night.



Awesome.



I talked to the director for a bit about how much I appreciated the musicality of the sharp/meaty impact sound fx.



We talked about how much we appreciated this video someone put together on Youtube:

Yeah....I'm kind of glad that didn't keep that last scene. I can't share in the disappointment that the narrator has over changes made in the international release. Largely because Drunken Master 2 still comes across as a masterpiece regardless of what form it's in.

Augh I hate that updated score and sound mix...

IT'S ALL WRONG

Oh no doubt the original score is much fucking better.



At least it isn't Super Cop with generic hip-hop beats inserted into the background.

Not too bad.



I may say pull the camera back a little, but it's probably a personal preference on my part for martial arts films.



When you get to see a wider angle on it, you can see the work they put into, better appreciate the choreography that they put into it.



He appreciates the classics, with a poster in the background he must.



Good work. We''ll get to see how it goes from here for the full-length film.

I wasn't there, but from the behind-the-scenes photos of the location they were in, I think they pulled back as far as they could within the type of lensing they wanted to shoot it in.



Looked like the crew was right up against the wall.

Yeah, looks like tight spaces there.



I didn't mean it as a knock against them. I thought they did quite well.



Hopefully they can get their full feature done.

Not just the original score!  It's the entire sound mix!



IT'S ALL WRONG!




I'm watching the American release track and original Cantonese track back to back.  My god, IT'S ALL WRONG!  THE RHYTHM AND IMPACT IS ALL OFF!

Another short film that I played a part in:



-story development


-storyboarding


-additional pick-up shots


-simple animation compositing


-sound design





It was for a filmmaking challenge sponsored by YOMYOMF, David Henry Hwang, and Justin Lin.  Our team didn't make the submission deadline unfortunately (poor post-production planning on our end)... but we still put the final effort in to finish it up the best we could after the fact.



The parameters of the challenge are listed in the video's description!  But the main one was that we could only use the 4 lines of dialogue provided in this exact order.



- Don't do that.


- Of course.


- I have my doubts.


- What is it?




Also, 3 minutes or less.  But since we didn't make the deadline, we let the end credits breathe for a few more seconds.

I made a storyboard comparison video for the short as well:
