We don't have that in Hollywood anymore; I hope I'm the lucky one who gets to bring that back someday. If its not me, kudos to the person that does.

    WCA: Are you done with your Wing Chun training?

    SS: I'm done with WC for now. I have to go to law school and start my production company. This takes a lot of time!

    WCA: Tell me about it. It is hard to find the time to focus on training and have any other side projects at all, much less Law School and running a business. Do you think we'll ever see any more Wing Chun in your films?

    SS: I want to make a romantic comedy/coming-of-age-flick about a nerdy computer programmer who learns WC and becomes popular after beating up a bunch of guys at a bullshido.com-style throw-down. He meets his first girlfriend that way.

    WCA: That sounds great, I can't wait. I'm curios to know if you are Christian and if that was part of the basis for the film. I'm no expert, but I didn't think there were many Chinese Christians in the 1930's and 40's, so I was wandering about that.

    SS: Yes, I'm a Christian. I'm actually half-Jewish/half-Chinese. Yes, I wanted to express an aspect of my faith that everyone could relate to: Forgiveness
    Do I really have to talk about this ?

    and since when does bullshido.com have Throwdowns ? ... I thought that was .net thing .

    Wow, some one should tell him that his storyline is very unauthentic. As opposed to the movie linked which is 'semi-authentic.'

    He has additional cinematic gems posted at http://www.whatthefilm.org/whatthefilm/

    "Parabellum" is especially... um... accurate.

    Here is how I see it .

    Most Wing Chun sucks .

    Most low budget movie projects suck .

    Most Christian video propaganda sucks .

    So if you make a low budget movie about Christian Chunners ... the deck is already stacked against you .

    I wonder, could this be self-reflective of one of his kung-fu wet dreams.

    I can see it now, our pretty young MEGA JESUS-SAMA fluttering her long eye-lashes while clutching her bow tighter and tighter as each bullshido.com fighter gets put down with a devestating flurry of centre-line cleaving strikes.

    I hope to see him at the ext Bullshido meet demonstrating his Wing Chun and then he can meet his next girlfriend there, Sirc maybe.
