When a new martial arts tournament emerges, fighters from all around the globe come to compete. But only one will be crowned the World Warrior.
STREET FIGHTER FANS UNITE!!!
A WORD FROM CHRIS
This little teaser was shot in about an hour inside my dank, dark and decrepit basement deep with in the hallows of Jersey City. My actor, Kevin Kreider who played Ryu is actually a 6'1 model who had to do jump kicks under a 6'4 high basement ceiling. It was an interesting shoot. My budget was $70.00 which was spent on buying the karate gi, the kick boxer gloves and black belt which is unfortunately sold separately.
The Hadouken effect was done by a good friend of mine named Ralph Henriquez. He is a very talented animator based out of the Bronx who does little favors for me like this on a whim. I am quite grateful.
The purpose of this teaser was to demonstrate that with a little creativity, a few dollars in your pocket and the right look, anyone can make an accurate Street Fighter film. As we all know how well received the last two films where, I felt it necessary to try and show up my Hollywood counter parts in a way I knew they have yet to try. Source material- paying tribute to it is the most important thing when adapting a comic book, video game or intellectual property that isn't 100% your own. If you fail to keep what made the characters memorable in the first place, a constant theme throughout your adaptation, you fail period.
Also, let it be known I am actively pursuing the rights to Street Fighter as well as Final Fight. So if you're a true fan of these games and want to see some justice done for them, pass this trailer on.
