That movie finally garnered my own viewing of its behind-the-scenes featurette just this month, showcasing the antics and shenanigans of The Stunt People – one of the independent film and stunt troupes that bred my earlier interest in the world of online martial arts action filmmaking; The group even accrued its own chat forum as their popularity arose as did their ambitions. Furthermore, said footage, and in timely fashion, likely fills in some blanks that might-have-been in the course of assembling this interview with none other than filmmaker Stephen Reedy, who directed The Stunt People short, Undercut, to perpetual fan acclaim.
The Man From Death tells of a man brought back to life in a deal forged in a prophetic, blood-drawn list of tasks he must fulfill in order to either help him seek vengeance for the death of his family, or even redemption…but preferably, hopefully revenge. The forthcoming cast for the movie currently lists Lim with actor and martial artist Mike Moh (The Inhumans, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, Empire), with newly-attached scribes Justin Giddings and Ryan Welsh (Bite Me – series, This Is Normal) on script detail.
That said, it was back in 2013 that netizens caught wind of actor Eric R. Lim‘s performance in The Forge, a work of spiritual magnitude in the essence of epic good vs. evil storytelling with a message. The shortfilm was a very personal one for Lim and its director Stephen Reedy who I have actually been trying to follow since I became a fan of his work with the MTV award-winning kung fu comedy from The Stunt People, Undercut, which is still a fresh and fantastic piece of work to this day.
