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.

Here’s some more Parkour training from our 1/3/2009 practice.

Here’s another gym practice where we worked on Parkour and threw in some HK spins for fun.
The Stunt People held another gymnastics practice where we played some games. One is “Platformer,” a Mario Bros.-tyle game where we hop along on pads, platforming style. The other is “Paddy Kong,” where we roll pads down a ramp and the hero[ine] tries to run up and get to the end before being knocked off.

Dennis Ruel has just finished his short “Patient Zero,” an action film about a group of college students caught up in a crazy experiment. Two guys and a girl wake up to find they’re trapped in a building and being persued by angry college kids and a zombie.
Shaun Finney of The Stunt People has updated his fight/stunt/acrobatic reel for 2008. Saying the man has improved would be an understatement. Enjoy!
If you haven’t heard of Sock Baby, then I suggest you go to www.sockbaby.com and familiarize yourself. It’s exaggerated action insanity at its best. Episode 4 is coming soon, and Shaun Finney of The Stunt People is the featured stuntman. The video also features Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite, his brother Dan Heder, Doug Jones of Hellboy 2 and Pan’s Labyrinth, and star John Soares. Directed by Doug TenNapel, writer of the hit videogame and TV show Earthworm Jim. Embedded below is the teaser. Please wear some protective sheeting over your head to avoid cranial explosion.
