On Thursday I had the distinct pleasure of being one of a crowd of folks to offer soundbytes of nostalgia and appreciation for the work of action star Jackie Chan. This comes as the 11th episode of the Kickback Podcast with Chris Jones went live this week with a multitude of voices weighing in, including stunt performers, podcast hosts, film producers and even martial arts students therein.
His podcast launch this year marks his latest move since I actually began covering him during his activity as a member of a Leeds-based martial arts stunt and film troupe titled SG Action. Prior to pivoting into other professions, the team performed on a number of amazing shortfilms as a unit collaborating with other creatives, including Andrew Kueh’s Prime Contact and hip-hop artist Dream McLean’s “Weatherman” music video/companion to Robin Schmidt’s triad action drama, Dog, on which Jones served as stunt coordinator.
Jones also shares credits with filmmakers such as Steve Lawson (Essex Heist), Ross Boyask (Ten Dead Men), Chee Keong Cheung (Underground) and Corey Yuen (Blood: The Last Vampire) among others.
