Of course, things will heat up as usual with our weekly installment of the Hit List and thus, we begin as always with a round of stunning demo reels from some of today’s best and rising talents in stunt performance and cinematic action. Vinny O’Brien gets things started this week followed by Sherry Rene, Ari Loeb, J.D. Garcia, Niahlah Hope, Garreth Hadfield, Austin Durden, Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez, Lance Brazil, Nikkilette Wright, Christian Petersson, Takahashi Hiroshi, Margaryta Soldatova, Girvan “Switch” Bramble, a nostalgic lookback at the work of Felix and Lorenz Hideyoshi for YoungMasters, and the the talent feats of action as shown in a new reel for Switzerland-based Sammali Design.
As far as promotional items go, there’s only one and it’s with a final poster for Ryan Connolly’s new short, BALLiSTTIC. Once more, plot details are nil but the trailer is fantastic and bodes something exciting for its release this Wednesday. Check out the poster below and check out the link at the far bottom to last week’s Hit List for the trailer, or simply click here and sub to the Facebook fan page and view it these.
Without further ado, time to get straight to the fight action this week. Kiera O’Connor weighs in opposite Kwang Bin for some choreography workshop time from Vlad Rimburg while we next get to introduce ourselves to Tristan Corrigan’s channel with his two most recent shorts, Repeat and Pay Your Debt.

Things ran a little light this week so we’ll see how next Monday goes unless I decide to take another break which might leave some room for more content to arrive. Until then, sub to the channels and SHARE the Hit List with friends, and visit last week’s entries if you’d like to see more of where these goods came from.
