PROJECT H: Aaron Toney Reveals New Photos For Upcoming Fantasy Action Pilot Now In Post-Production Through Indiegogo
Actor, filmmaker and stunt professional Aaron Toney revealed two new images over the weekend for his upcoming independently-produced pilot, Project H, which you can view in the captioned images above. Toney made the reveal in a new Indiegogo campaign launched several days ago to help crowdfund the pilot’s post-production, after completing a five-day production slate spanning a month from mid-March.The campaign ultimately achieved its goal of $2000, having since broken past the $3600 mark (as of this article) which could potentially be used as funds toward another episode or to provide means to trek the concept to various marketplaces virtually, and help him and his team expand his reach. An official statement has not yet been made.Project H is based on Toney’s viral action-packed short, Throne, which he shot in 2014 with over two dozen performers, from a concept he drew together with fellow creatives Jason Sweat and Linda Jewell. We also have just a tidbit more to perceive in terms of story details according to the caption at the top of the new Indiegogo page which briefly describes the pilot as follows:
PROJECT H: Aaron Toney’s Martial Arts Fantasy Pilot Commences Principal Photography
In an announcement from actor, director and stunt professional Aaron Toney sent to us on Tuesday, Toney revealed the following: “Production has officially kicked off with Aaron Toney and his entertainment company, Halvon Corporation Entertainment. The crew is set to work for three days in the Mojave desert region on the new pilot for Halvon Corps first show “Project H”.Billed as a pilot for a planned series, Project H stems from Toney’s martial arts fantasy-infused indie short, Throne, born from the like minds of Toney along with Toney, Jason Sweat, and Linda Jewell. The concept remained in quiet evolution ever since then, while Toney continued working stunts, most recently retiring the Falcon costume after doubling Anthony Mackie’s character on Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which is now airing on Disney+.Toney revived the project in an official crowdfunding campaign back in December, hailing Project H as the official launchpad for Halvon Corp. Entertainment and Global Forge Studios. Plot and story details are otherwise being kept under wraps by the tightly-lipped Toney, who is building the series next to writer/producer Sweat, and with co-producer Julia Maggio. There is no word yet on acquisitions or sales for the series.Fans following Toney can also take a gander at his social media of late where he’s since begun teasing the start of production, sharing photos of himself and that of actor Yoshi Sudarso (Buffalo Boys, The Paper Tigers) who committed to the project back in January. You can check out those pictotals below.

THE HIT LIST: December 3, 2018
Well how about that. Holiday break is almost here! I’m actually looking forward to some extra time to myself seeing as I’ve missed out on so much in the course of the year – I even had to put some anime on the backburner too…and kinda sucks. ?

BLACK AND BLUE IN WILLIAMSBURG: An Evening With Aaron, Cheryl, And The Spirited Presence Of A Legendary Few
I’ve lived in Queens, New York all my life. Granted, I’ve been to four of the five boroughs but I’ve never seen much of the city in my time here, and it’s one goal in my life that I hope to accomplish among others. Brooklyn is surely no exception here as I’ve traveled to it quite a few times in recent years; the last time I saw Brooklyn was when I went to a birthday party in Williamsburg in 2013, and before that, a New Years’ Eve party for that year. And before that…well, I have no idea, probably a museum or a Circuit City when those existed but it was years ago and my head hurts trying to remember.
Aaron Toney + 87 Eleven Present: NATALIE PADILLA Vs. TAMIKO BROWNLEE
Anyday is a good day to catch some amazing martial arts on the internet. Alas, pan over to actor and stuntman Aaron Toney who’s been maintaining his own growth in the world of film for sometime now. One recent example is the current post-production of his latest experiment in action design and independent film, Throne, which already has itself quite a promising teaser as of July.
While we await the verdict on that project, Toney recently spent some time behind the camera with two other amazing action actresses for a new test fight sequence of their own. The video features Natalie Padilla and Tamiko Brownlee, and while I could say more about how great it looks, really (as Morpheus would say), you have to see it for yourself!
Check it out now on Toney‘s YouTube channel, and please subscribe!
What is Project: THRONE?
…That is the question, and it’s a pretty simple one, although very, VERY little is being willfully said about it since its conception earlier on. For now though, what we can go by is the information currently on display at its official Facebook page, including key names and companies, a very slow feed of stills, and a description that goes a little something like this:
“THRONE” is the an epic, action-adventure film from Halvon Corps. Entertainment, PMV Entertainment (“JumpStart the Movie”), and the producers who brought you “Violence” and “Insecurity”!
“THRONE” has an insanely talented international cast and crew led by Aaron Toney (“Gaurdians of the Galaxy”), James Young (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), & Brendon Huor (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”). And it features the amazingly creative talents from EpicRival, Thousand Pounds Action Company, LBP Stunts Chicago, 87Eleven Action Design, EMC Monkeys, & Flow (just to name a few)!
Stay updated by connecting with us on social media! And when “THRONE” drops…

If you follow my site and happen to be a devout fan of independent film and action cinema, you’ll likely recognize the names mentioned above, like Hollywood stuntman Aaron Toney, who is directing this project. And it makes sense that Toney is the one sitting in the director’s chair considering how much talent he sees and appreciates among professional performers, something he expressed in a special exclusive interview with our own Darren Bailey earlier this year. “I’ve seen nothing but good things come from people like The Stunt People, Thousand Pounds, EMC, Lazy Brown Productions…all these guys are top notch, …which is why I like working with all you guys.” he said. “You do some of your best work with independent, like-minded people.”
Needless to say, these like minds are keeping extra quiet about this little upcoming gem, and perhaps rightfully so, seeing as how awesome this project is already looking. So, indeed, no spoilers or clues just yet, but by all means, do the sensible thing and follow Project: THRONE on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and watch this space for more news!

CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS EXCLUSIVE – Interview With Aaron Toney And James Young
I recently sat down to share dinner and hard cider with stuntmen James Young and Aaron Toney. Their most recent collaboration was on the record-breaking Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We discussed the ins and outs of the industry, specific needs of that film, as well as a history of their work in the stunt community and what’s important to them as artists. Please share this post with others and help put the stunt community even further in the spotlight.”
