This is a short video I put together on a shoestring budget. My goal was to capture the essence and chemistry between characters within the Street Fighter universe. This short is actually an excerpt from my feature script. The scene follows Ken who is searching for his long lost pal, Ryu. His search crosses paths with Ryu's scorned ex-lover, Chun Li, who is preparing for an upcoming tournament known as the "Street Fighter" Competition.
A WORD FROM CHRIS
There is a lot that went into making this video and a lot of complications as well. For starters, Chase Coleman who plays Ken was actually cast 24 hours prior to filming this. The original actor who was cast had suffered a horrific injury only two days before the scheduled shooting date and was forced to quit. Not that he had much of a choice.... a broken leg in a cast and forced to be on crutches for four weeks will definitely ruin any immediate plans.
But thanks to some incredible finagling, Chase literally stepped in last minute and conquered the role with incredible ease. But unfortunately the the intense fight scene that was suppose to follow the "getting to know you moments" between Ken and Chun Li had to be significantly reduced since there wasn't enough time. Now sure, I could have postponed the entire production for who knows how long, and I probably would have had I not already been a month late. I was expected to have a finished product by the end of August and there was no way I was going to waste anymore time. In the end, yes the fight was cut drastically, but the acting in my humble opinion was really top notch. Celia Au and Chase Colemen really understood the direction I wanted to take their characters and they truly embodied my vision.
