Indie directors, fight choreographers, and actors are creating some good martial arts related and old school inspired productions that are readily available for us-the kung fu movie loving audience. One such short comes from Spectacle Pictures ( also responsible for Ascended Masters) and is the focus of this week’s Indie Showcase. Director Jela Oba Okpara’s The Last Girl
The Last Girl (re-cut edit)
(courtesy of Spectacle Pictures)
directed by Jela Oba Okpara
action director: Chibi
starring Marissa Pistone, Nick Den, Lincoln Centeio, William Joseph Hill
Plot: A villain( Lincoln Centeio) and his evil sidekick ( William Joesph Hill) try to get the last girl on Earth while a hero ( Nick Den) will stop at nothing to save her.
Fight choreographer Chibi once again bring the goods to the mano e mano fight between hero and villain. The fight has elements of the old school kung fu type style of fight; poses to stop the action and create drama, the last girl interjects for a brief moment, lots of hand techniques, body control, stance work and the smart use of acrobatics. Actors Nick Den and Lincoln Centeio really showcase their talents and the post-apocalyptic scenery helps with the choreography.
Be sure to watch this film. It has heart, a great fight scene, good scenery, and a little of the Western movie genre aspect to it. I can’t wait to see more from Spectacle Productions! for more info on this great short visit The Last Girl Facebook Page.
