I’m sure if you follow this site, you’ve heard of the Stunt People and their leader, Eric Jacobus. He’s one of the hardest working guys out there, and he’s on a mission to bring quality films to the indie film industry.
We have all seen movies where the action is good, but the story is pretty bad. The action kickback is a movement that strives to deliver great action with compelling story elements and characters. Those associated with the kickback have tired of the low standards set by action films.
Just because something is believed to be routinely bad by today’s standards does not make it reason to avoid it – it’s reason to improve it! Enter Action Kickback, a revolutionary new action film movement that unites no-nonsense, technical fight choreography with solid storytelling. The Action Kickback film model advocates stronger integration of fight choreographers and talented writers in the production team, producing an action experience that won’t soon be forgotten. It all starts here.
Eric will be adding entries from time to time, and he will also spotlight others that are following the same model. In other words, this is a great site to get inside info as well as see new projects that are on the horizon.
There isn’t too much on the site yet since it just launched, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bookmark the page and check it from time to time.
