We’ve Been Busy…

by Lewis Manalo

We appreciate all of you who’ve followed Split Edit in the past, and we just wanted to let you know that we haven’t been lazy with writing articles. We’ve just been busy with other things.

One of these things is the Slice Girls: Fight Test, a sample scene that we shot for the development for Slice Girls, a horror-action film about a handful of teenage girls who have to fight off an undead ninja attack.

We wanted to explore the possibilities of the style we intend to use for the fight scenes, looking for ways in which choreography can entertain as it tells our story and depicts our characters.

The fighting here will be used in the scene that introduces the main characters.

Thanks for watching, and please share our Fight Test with your friends.  For more info, check www.princessrevolver.com.

A Documentary That Kicks Ass

by Lewis Manalo

Ruel Antipuesto’s documentary Eskrimadors screens this weekend in Queens, NY at the Bayanihan Filipino Community Center. Featuring interviews with some of most eminent grandmasters of Filipino Martial Arts, Eskrimadors will make you think twice about messin’ with a flip (aka, Funny Little Island Person).

Already available on DVD, this is more than just a History Channel special. Many of Cebu’s greatest teachers are featured here, in interviews and swinging sticks. Action fans will not want to miss it.
