It’s been about a decade since we got our first computer here, and for me, it marked an adventurous beginning for me on the internet as an action fan. MySpace was popular, Netscape and AOL/AIM were cool, and most importantly, my random searches for all things kung fu and film related ultimately led me to the world of indie action, and it was simply a matter of time before I would come across the official website for The Stunt People and their hit shortfilm, Undercut, directed by independent filmmaker Stephen Reedy.
It was my introduction to actor, martial artist, fight choreographer and stuntman Eric Jacobus and his team prior to seeing his later work online, having grown fond of what the independent film scene is capable of for better action movies ever since. It’s people like Jacobus and Andy Leung that have brought me to where I am now as a fan, and I am more than happy to be able to share this on my own platform here at Film Combat Syndicate.
Loaded with wacky poltical satire, cheesy acting and loads of pseudo-violent lightning-fast kung fu ninja action, then you’re in for a real treat. It’s projects like this that pay true homage to a genre that will never die and a great way to kill sometime online other than fishing through cat videos. So give yourself a half-hour sometime soon, and enjoy!
