PROJECT H: Aaron Toney Reveals New Photos For Upcoming Fantasy Action Pilot Now In Post-Production Through Indiegogo
Actor, filmmaker and stunt professional Aaron Toney revealed two new images over the weekend for his upcoming independently-produced pilot, Project H, which you can view in the captioned images above. Toney made the reveal in a new Indiegogo campaign launched several days ago to help crowdfund the pilot’s post-production, after completing a five-day production slate spanning a month from mid-March.The campaign ultimately achieved its goal of $2000, having since broken past the $3600 mark (as of this article) which could potentially be used as funds toward another episode or to provide means to trek the concept to various marketplaces virtually, and help him and his team expand his reach. An official statement has not yet been made.Project H is based on Toney’s viral action-packed short, Throne, which he shot in 2014 with over two dozen performers, from a concept he drew together with fellow creatives Jason Sweat and Linda Jewell. We also have just a tidbit more to perceive in terms of story details according to the caption at the top of the new Indiegogo page which briefly describes the pilot as follows:
In an announcement from actor, director and stunt professional Aaron Toney sent to us on Tuesday, Toney revealed the following: “Production has officially kicked off with Aaron Toney and his entertainment company, Halvon Corporation Entertainment. The crew is set to work for three days in the Mojave desert region on the new pilot for Halvon Corps first show “Project H”.Billed as a pilot for a planned series, Project H stems from Toney’s martial arts fantasy-infused indie short, Throne, born from the like minds of Toney along with Toney, Jason Sweat, and Linda Jewell. The concept remained in quiet evolution ever since then, while Toney continued working stunts, most recently retiring the Falcon costume after doubling Anthony Mackie’s character on Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which is now airing on Disney+.Toney revived the project in an official crowdfunding campaign back in December, hailing Project H as the official launchpad for Halvon Corp. Entertainment and Global Forge Studios. Plot and story details are otherwise being kept under wraps by the tightly-lipped Toney, who is building the series next to writer/producer Sweat, and with co-producer Julia Maggio. There is no word yet on acquisitions or sales for the series.Fans following Toney can also take a gander at his social media of late where he’s since begun teasing the start of production, sharing photos of himself and that of actor Yoshi Sudarso (Buffalo Boys, The Paper Tigers) who committed to the project back in January. You can check out those pictotals below.

SKY WOLVES: Former ‘Power Rangers’ Actor Yoshi Sudarso Joins The Indonesian Air Force In The Official Trailer
Sky Wolves (locally titled Serigala Langit) is the name of director Rika Wijaya’s new miltary action drama which sees Deva Mahendra heading a cast that includes former Power Rangers actor Yoshi Sudarso, actresses Bunga Jelitha and Cristina Surya, and actors Dion Sidik and Donny Damara.
We recently caught up with The Paper Tigers director Bao Tran a few years since he began pounding the pavement with indie kung fu short, The Challenger. As a project eagerly awaiting to get its feet off the ground, we were happy to offset that interview as a pre-launch now as Tran and his company are looking toward their second crowdfunder to help further solidify Tran’s feature debut via Kickstarter.
Watch the brand new trailer below, and if you have a good eye and are familiar with the director, try and spot him. He gets an appearance as well!
It’s a rousing time for actor Yoshi Sudarso who will be getting a little screentime of his own for the Frontières Proof Of Concept showcase at Cannes for Bao Tran’s kung fu feature, The Paper Tigers. In the meantime, his biggest score by far in his career is set to arrive later this year in a debut role next to actor Ario Bayu for period Western actioner, Buffalo Boys, from debut director Mike Wiluan.
Sudarso, best known for his role in hit series, Power Rangers: Dino Charge, and Bayu who also stars in Java Heat with Mickey Rourke, lead the narrative for Wiluan’s new film as two brothers on a mission of vengeance for their father’s death against corrupt Dutch colonialists in the 1800s. Wiluan penned the script along with screenwriter Raymond Lee with the addition of action sequences to boot courtesy of Kazu Patrick Tang of Hard Target 2 fame.
A release date hasn’t been set just yet while Screenplay Infinite is more than willing, as of Friday, to oblige moviegoing netizens with a searing look at the official trailer following last month’s teaser. Watch it now, and then click here for my interview with Buffalo Boys star Yoshi Sudarso, published with the trailer’s launch!
“I wasn’t really sure of what I wanted to do in life, let alone in film.” he tells us. “I tried it all and one day someone told me that I should try getting into stunts and then years later I was doing stunts for films and TV, eventually that led me to acting.”
Mike Wiluan’s period Western actioner, Buffalo Boys is off to a roaring start this week with the unveiling our first official teaser. Wiluan, best known for producing ‘Mo Bros thrillers Macabre, Headshot and Liam O’Donnell’s upcoming Beyond Skyline, makes his directorial debut on the Indonesia-Singapore co-production which joins Java Heat co-star Ario Bayu with Power Rangers: Dino Charge and Hyperforce star, actor and martial artist Yoshi Sudarso making his own big screen debut.
