2013, Jedi, Wishes, Ninjas, Nintendo, The Dark Knight, and Training

So during this last quarter I think I’ve been pretty busy all things considered. Between Saber Guild appearances, EMC shoots, training, and music I’d say this has been a pretty good year! So instead of bombarding your feed with 37 catch up posts I think I’ll just go for the SuperMegaPOST (patent pending) and hit you with all kinds of goodness right NOW!!

Saber Guild appearances and shows went great this past few months. I’m actually starting to get recognized as Quinlan Vos now and every time my wife hits a show she gets bombarded with pic requests! We had a great time at Nuke the Fridge Con, Long Beach Comic Con, and of course a legendary Make a Wish Foundation event.

The Make a Wish event was one of the greatest things I’ve ever had the privilege and honor to be a part of. Benton is a young boy who wished to become a Jedi Knight and defeat Darth Vader. Together with the 501st and the Rebel Legion we were able to make his wish come true in a full day of Jedi training and a SECOND day of battle in which he accomplished his wish and defeated Darth Vader himself.

Watch a wish come true here:

Working with the EMC Monkeys has been one of the things I’m most proud of. Every single one of them is amazingly skilled and training with them gives me so much insight to my own skills. I’ve been training hard and trying to move my own skills into their realm and I plan on keeping it up! We’ve been pretty busy lately with great stuff like this:

And of Course This:

This year I also had the chance to work with Machinima on a really cool Dark Knight video that became so successful it succeeded in getting a cease and desist letter from Warner bros! Watch the vid here:

This was GREAT fun to be a part of but I also got the chance to work with some REALLY cool people from one of my FAVORITE WEB SERIES’ EVER!!!

I hope to make 2014 just as productive and hopefully up the intensity even more!! I plan on new music more videos and more Jedi appearances so hope to see you all there!!

May the Force be with you

Bourne Movies are Confusing

Alright. I confess I haven’t seen the latest Jeremy Renner version but I have seen the Damon trilogy. American fight choreo seems to go something like this:

 
Fight Coordinator: Ok, I’m going to have you do do some really close quarters combat fighting. Very fast and direct.

Director: Great, I’ll tell the Camera Operator to prepare for his seizure.

Damon: So what do you want me to do?

Fight Coordinator: Oh it’s really easy, just stay close to these stunt men, flail around aimlessly, make some fighting grunts and they’ll take care of the rest.

Director: Ok are we ready to roll on this?

(The Camera Operator is spining in circles with his forehead on a bat.)

Camera Operator: 49… 50. Ok. Uh…. whoa…. Rolling!

Director: ACTION!

Everyone: ….

Well, instead of the usual EMC fighting prowess this week the monkeys decided to take a page from Hollywood and try their hand at an American (chuckle) fight scene. There’s no way not to enjoy this because whether the fight works or doesn’t work, it still works.

So tell me,

Is this Hollywood enough for you?

They do it monkey style.
