A little slice of intrigue, a dash of danger and a touch of deadly hand-to-hand combat can make for nice little online gem, particularly arriving soon in the form of independent filmmaker and actor Will Yick‘s new webseries, Disavowed. A purveyor of Filipino martial arts for six years, the series is an inspired product by Yick who wanted to incorporate comprehensive storytelling and acting with his own personal knowledge of military, having served both in the Navy and Army.
Yick also directed, produced, edited, co-wrote and designed action sequences for the new series which he says will be much more character driven than some of his previous work. “I didn’t want to oversaturate the series with too much action this time around.” he says. “My goal was to have a balance of drama, plots and sub-plots, and enough action to get people interested, although I won’t always use this formula always because I love action. So, in the future, I will definitely incorporate more action.”.
Yick has a few other surprises in store for indie action fans this year with several projects to come, while Disavowed finishes production on just a few more episodes left to its 19-episode slate – each episode ranging from two-to-five minutes upon its upcoming air date. To keep track of the series, head over and subscribe to the official Facebook page until then. In the meantime, watch the new series trailer and stick around for more info.
