If you’re near Poznan, Poland on October 20th, 2019, come see Eric Jacobus talk action design, motion capture, and the anthropology and neuroscience of violence at the GIC show. There you’ll also get the chance to see the incredible success story that is the Polish games industry. The country that birthed games like Shadow Warrior, Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light, Poland is on the edge of global game development. Don’t miss this show!

The Fighting Spirit Film Festival (@FSFilmFestival) recently featured our film Blindsided alongside Scott Adkins’ action-comedy Accident Man.

Blindsided won Best Short at the 2017 Fighting Spirit Film Fest. Thank you Soo Cole for featuring our film, and Hardeep Mahal and Scott Adkins for the Twitter love.

Clayton Barber and I spent a chunk of 2017 on the continuation of Blindsided entitled “Blindsided: The Game“. Stay tuned for release details.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to see Death Grip yet, you’re missing out on 90 minutes of martial arts goodness. But there’s good news – now you can catch it for just $3.99 on YouTube! Watch Eric Jacobus (Mortal Kombat Legacy, ABCs of Death 2) and Johnny Yong Bosch (Bleach, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) slug it out Hong Kong-style over a sacred coin, and you can watch it all without even leaving the couch. With six back-breaking fight scenes and some comedy that would make Buster Keaton laugh in his grave, Death Grip shouldn’t be missed.

Of course, you can always get it with all the special features and bells and whistles on DVD or Blu-Ray at http://stuntpeoplestore.bigcartel.com. Unlike the YouTube profits, all DVD and Blu-Ray proceeds go straight to the filmmakers, who will use the cash on their next back-breaking venture.

Back in the day, the veritable Micah More of Beat Down Boogie directed me in a film called Dogs of Chinatown. We’ve now had the DVD on sale for years at our online store, but the official UK release is now slated for August 4, 2014. You can pre-order it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dogs-Chinatown-DVD-Eric-Jacobus/dp/B009LQ5H70/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395788006&sr=8-1&keywords=dogs+of+chinatown


I bet you’re thinking, “Boy, it must’ve been exciting getting the call from the distributor saying the film was finally being released! I can’t wait to get that call for my film!” Yeah, it would’ve been great, except I got no call. In fact, nobody got a call. I heard about it from my friend Mike Fury. The reason producers never get the call is because they’re at the end of a long chain of command, which starts with the distributor (in this case, “High Fliers Films”, which is incorrectly credited as “studio”), then the sub-sales agent for the region, followed by the sales agent (Fantastic Films here), and then the producers… and then yours truly. Then I write a blog post.

The funny thing is that nobody even heard anything from the sales agent in over two years, which happens to be completely normal. They may have sold the rights to High Fliers five years ago, and High Fliers might have been just sitting on it until the right time to release it came about, or they just needed to pull something from their vaults to fill a genre hole. Bottom line is this: the modern state of home distribution is a snarled knot of crazy, where producers and sales agents both struggle to make enough cash to cover costs. This isn’t “independent filmmaking” anymore: this is atomized, free-radical art that floats in the fog of film markets until it’s needed (or maybe when enough of us have market value, like Bill Oberst Jr.), when it’s snatched from the ether and shoved through a pipeline, and it suddenly winds up on Amazon. By then nobody knows who the hell made it – but we don’t care. After six years, Dogs of Chinatown is released, even if it’s in just one country. Celebration time!

Check out the trailer below, or support us directly by buying Dogs of Chinatown from our online store here: http://stuntpeoplestore.bigcartel.com/product/dogs-of-chinatown-dvd.

(If you want a good sales agent for your low-budget, genre project, I recommend these guys. They handle Death Grip.)
