    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Also, I was in a movie

    This came up in one of my other self-glorifying threads, and I figured I should post it, too.
    So Atrophy is not out yet. It won't be out for a while. All of the editing is being done by one guy, and he already has a full time job.
    BUT, I was in another movie. Sort of. It was a student film, and in addition to doing the fight choreography, I also played the role of the villain.
    Keep in mind, we had one fight rehearsal and zero line rehearsals, so I'd like you to all take your expectation meters and lower them a couple steps. I would also like to remind you that my own acting experience consists of naught but years of playing dungeons and dragons, and the female leads only fight experience was our single rehearsal the week before. Given the overall spy vs spy/demi-cyberpunk feeling of the movie, I tried to make the choreography very SAMBO-heavy. To that end, we managed to work in two armbars, a kneebar, a flying scissor, and a Georgian pickup.
    That said, I hope you'll enjoy the cheese. I did my very best to ham it up as the villain, and I'm fairly proud of the choreography I wrote (not as proud as for Atrophy, mind you, but it's still not bad).
    We shot it last February in Rochester, MI, which means I got to take repeated falls on concrete in the balls-ass cold.
    Ok, now that I've finished justifying my all my doubts about the movie, enjoy:
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    LOL! Looks like the movie was fun. You're right about the cheese though. I know you're not asking for feedback, it seems like you have a good grasp about the feel of the movie so I won't bother with criticism.

    How did you get involved in this sort of acting and fight choreography?

    Also I like that you didn't involve overly fancy fight work for whatever reason that was. I feel like in this day and age we have seen just about the best movie fighting acrobatics has to offer with and without the use of wires. I feel like movies now need to work on taking it back to the oldschool and sell the fight as a real struggle between two opposing forces set on destroying each other.

    Maybe we need a good quality movie fight choreography analysis thread where members more knowledgeable about movie fight choreography can share info, highlight examples of what makes up a good and bad fight scene and educate the masses. Rather than simply post good fight vids as has been done in the past i'd like to learn from those more experienced about what goes into choreographing a good fight scene. Then after the scene is made I can continue to bitch about how the movie sucks and how if I were in the fight i'd do everything better.

    Atrophy is out.... sometime. I'll let y'all know once the trailer is up.
    It's funny, in every role I've been cast in, that roll has been 'mid-ranking villain.' Either a high-ranking nameless goon or a low-ranking named Goon. I've been offered this part in 4 different films now, including a couple I turned down.
    Jspeedy, I like the idea of doing a fight choreography thread. I think I might start one.

    I've been in several movies. If you are male and were watching certain movies in early 2000 it is likely you saw me. My roles were often one dimensional, but at least I got screen time. I had several lines of dialogue, but due to the interchangeability of the characters it usually consisted of the same thing just inserting different occupations, for example:

    Me: So, I heard you need (insert suggestive job description) done today.
    Blonde: I would like (insert suggestive job description) done today. I would like it done real good...

    Obviously your Originalitycheck isn't functioning properly, check your computer settings, you may have accidentally turned it off while shoving your cock in the headphone jack.
