Hey everyone, Ed Kahana from the Stunt People here making a guest update!
Over two years ago, I began a project for a media class where we were to create a webisode series and produce at least one episode from it. Of course, me being an indie martial arts action film guy, I came up with a webisode series featuring our The Stunt People and thus began “Ninja Gendai” (originally “9 to 5 Ninja”). What I produced for that class would become the second half of the first episode and was shot in 2006. There are at least 3-4 more episodes waiting in the wings that have already been shot.
In “Ninja Gendai”, ninja clans continue to exist in the present. Their descendants, ethnic ninjas, suffer like most third world minorities and some of them have begun immigrating to the United States. These younger, ethnic Ninja-Americans use their ninja skills in the workforce to earn a living in modern times.
