Kobra Fist

posted in: Acting, Hara Kiwi, Screenwriting | 0

In September 2018 was held the Kino Kabaret Intenational de Bordeaux. It’s an event during which, participants are invited to make a short film in less than 72 hours.
With my co-writer Gabriel Feuvrier, we wrote, shot and edited this tribute to TV shows from the 90’s (Like Walker Texas Ranger, MacGyver, etc…).

Everything was shot in English and then, a few months later, dubbed in french. This was done because one of the most humorous aspects of these types of programs was the VERY over the top acting done by the french actors that were hired to dubbed them.

Also, please be aware that I had to learn the Nunchaku in a few hours in order to prepare for the role.
