From the week of April 26, the session took four days to finish, with each day accompanied by long, arduous treks through one of California’s national parks – one of the perks of partaking in what Rimburg solely describes as a “real Vlad-style shoot”. “When we got to our location the first day, I didn’t like it.” says Rimburg. “So, we hiked some more until we got to a mountain top. That hike lasted about fifteen minutes. It really killed us, and day three was the hardest hiking day there was because it was also the hottest.”.
karate boys vs the world
From L to R (background): Tony Vittorioso, Alexander Hashioka and Nate Hitpas take direction from Emmanuel Manzanares (center/front)
Going into the weekend, we have a outstanding amalgam of talent that once more sees LBP Stunt Chicago’s own Emmanuel Manzanares back behind the camera for his latest skit, Karate Bros. vs. The World. This one is one of the slightly more spectacular ones with a little bit of VFX near the end, which is different from a lot of the short test fights we see from this group. Not to mention tricking impressario Micah Karns does a neat little stunt that was edited just nicely in the second half to give the fight that extra edge.
Fellow LBP members Alexander Hashioka and Nate Hitpas, with fellow tricker and martial artist Tony Vittorioso also perform.
