Actress, martial artist, instructor and stuntwoman Mandy Bhari is back with the folks from the UK’s Hybrid Academy in the new promotional shortfilm, Trapped. The shortfilm is their fourth collaboration with Stirling-based film and photography studio since July, and their second after recently airing their first shortfilm venture, Hybrid, with fight choreographer and instructor George Johnston, and stunt performers David McCallum and Alan MacEwan.
It’s a pretty good shortfilm that showcases more of what the independent industry has to offer when it comes to action, particularly with cinematography courtesy of Miroslaw Czubazek. It also makes for a great self-defense dramatization, even though most instances won’t be as filmic and would require less camera-friendly techniques. In that case, that’s where Hybrid Academy comes in, so feel free to drop them a line and get in touch with Hybrid Academy if you’re in the Glasgow area want some lessons.

Mandy Bhari has been practicing martial arts for over 25 years. She co-owns and operates the Hybrid Academy Of Martial Arts in Glasgow where students practice physical fitness, learn self-defense and ultimately train in the same field of martial arts philosophy founded on the inspiring principles founded by the late iconic martial arts legend and Jeet Kune Do founder, Bruce Lee, of whom Mandy is also a devoted fan. Having just recently gotten back into acting in the last few years, Mandy is also an accomplished stuntwoman and actress who applies her versatility while engaging in screenfighting workshops with her students, choreographing and executing skits, and even shooting shortfilms.
