As such, the shortfilm itself which joins Gerhardy with lead actress Victoria Viveiros for a story that centers on a woman dispensing her own brand of justice following the murder of her ex-girlfriend. TakeDown currently has two festival runs to its legacy with splashing results from crowds this month at the Nevada Women’s Film Festival, and last year’s Action On Film Festival with several nominations to its credit including in fight choreography, action sequence and Breakout Action Actress.
I’m more than proud to share it’s trailer after having never known of it all this time. It’s especially opportune as we are now just days from the shortfilm’s release online with an exact date pending, and to boot, I have five exclusive stills which you can view just beneath!

Following that is a project all the more worth looking toward from director Johnny Balazs who architectured the sizzling action and thrills in last year’s film fest delight, Dancer. He’s back with Night Shift, and with a quartet hinting at something of a slightly more tactical nature with a cast that includes actress Adele Elasmar, Liz Conrado, Stephen Degenaro and Zia Kelly.
An exclusive sneak peek at the fight scenes that you’ll see in our upcoming film Night Shift. Women can’t fight right? @adeleelasmar @ziakelly killing it! And they are still in early training with @instadan1996 #primaluxfilms #nightshift #womeninfilm #femalelead #stunts #filmmakers #aussieaction #womeninaction #martialarts #actionfilm
Afterwards, we then immerse ourselves into the darker, gritter thrillers in Out Alive from Felix King and Ruben Maldonado, and Adem Suljic’s newest home invasion thriller entry, The Fall. Rob Cooper takes flight in a hail of bullets for Marcus Shakesheff’s Epic Gun Fight with Jean-Paul Ly, Lauren Okadigbo and Nick Roeten and Jonathen Pantera Wallace fights to clear his name from the annals of mistaken Lin Kuei history in I’m Not Bi-Han.
