It looks as if things are back in full swing with Nicholas Ortiz and his independent production company Deviant Children for forthcoming webseries, Black Betty. The company took to Instagram on Thursday to share the following update:

I sincerely hope everyone reading this had the best, most memorable Holliday season and New Year they could. It was a bit rocky the last two weeks leading up to my birthday on Friday, but I can’t even begin (try as I may) to illustrate how wonderful it was to attend my first ever ceremonial premiere event for a movie with friends.
The good news is I’m getting back a little bit more into a steady viewing of anime. Finished season 3 of My Hero Academia and caught up with the latest in the Silver Soul arc of Gintama, plus I’ve just started picking back up on features I’ve been missing out on so expect some more reviews if possible.
In the world of action cinema, quality certainly reigns over quantity; A single well choreographed, well shot action sequence can excite more than two and a half hours of “lights and noise”. However even in action films both large and small, not much is mentioned of the things that had to come before that DVD started spinning in your player. Action filmmaking is highly technical, more so than most other genres that tend to offer more creative interpretations of on screen physicality. Being an indie filmmaker is already tough, but indie action filmmaking takes those challenges and complicates them even further.
