As for promotional assets, a select number of stills are now out along with a new poster for director Samuel Smith’s new upcoming short, I Am Not The Devil. It’s his second venture following Tengu: Birdmen Of The Mountains, and features UK actor and martial artist David Cheung, and a plot summary of no kind can currently be found online so we don’t have much to go on. However, this isn’t Cheung’s first rodeo in film as I’ve all but enjoyed covering him in the last three years off and on, and considering his recent accolaces with Tengu in its current festival run, I wouldn’t write this one off. Footage may be long to arrive but I’ll be sure to follow up on this project as soon as things make headway some more, but we do have some stills below as well as a poster to start with, designed courtesy of artist Isabel White.
Onto the shortform end of things and for this, we get a look at Angie Kim and her latest bit of fight practice with Jay Kwon and Allen Quindigan, followed by stuntman Dylan Hintz’s latest contribution with Andrew Kim as promised per last week from his visit to NYC. Michael Lehr keeps the pace going some with Suzuki Kimmy and Jenna Hellmuth while Bueno keeps the zany going with Suzaku‘s latest misadventures over at Garage Hero, and by way of the legendary Cynthia Rothrock’s own approval, a fan fight inspired by Sammo Hung’s 1986 Hong Kong classic, Millionaire’s Express, sets the example with performances by Gabriela Rodriguez and Chris Jynx McClure. The playlist finishes with Rising Tiger Films‘s own Edmond Shum breaking in new talent with performers Geoffrey Boggs, Lekir Stunt Action’s The Bondsman, Flawless Films’s Lord Of The Rings-inspired short, The Ranger, and a thrilling new fantasy action shortfilm, Salem: The Witch Hunters Chronicles, starring the aforementioned Alix Schwartz and Caitlin Hutson, and directed by Lou Giannopoulos.
