Small Budget Film Shoots Action Sequence At Indoor Trampoline Park
A low budget film producer took to an indoor trampoline park in Lethbridge Canada to film some action sequences in a Canadian martial arts film titled The Kung Fu Canadian. Word on the streets is that Canadian martial arts superstar George St-Pierre will be featured as a local tough guy wondering the mean streets of Toronto looking for his big break when he is discovered by Russian MMA coach and fight promoter Baul Sackie. Baul takes George in under his wing and teaches him how to fight in the Octagon.
During the film, however, there is a fight scene that takes place in an Indoor Trampoline park where George is playing with his Canadian boy-buddy and jumping around doing spinning kicks while he tries to balance his movie career with his upcoming fight against Michael Bisping. All I can think is how much of a challenge that would be for many Film production companies, and to be honest I enjoy seeing just how they’ll work that out. The funny part about the scene is apparently that’s a recreational activity George is known to do. According to some of the Canadian locals, George has been seen jumping around like a 90’s version of House Of Pain. Apparently, this indoor activity is amazing on the calves and thighs.
Last time anyone saw George in the Octagon was almost 7 years ago and I think even Joe Rogan is wondering whether or not George still has it. There may not be a cinematic climax in the real-life fight like there is in this movie, but I will be swinging by Sppiz with the boys to check ou the paper view. Usually, I can count on Iron Fist Fletchy and Scottie Karate to show up and have a beer with me. We will see if that happens.
Until then, I continue to watch this indoor action sequence in a post editor and wonder how that scene was not choreographed. The indoor trampoline park allowed George to make some very out of this world acrobatic jumps and flips that I haven’t seen since Bruce Lee was seen in Enter The Dragon banging kicks like a subwoofer. Canada can get very cold in the winter and have an indoor facility to exercise and shoot low budget films is a blessing for Canadian videographers.
The facility is very large and has trampolines that stretch the length of the facility. The beauty behind that is that it gives the videographer room for some sweeping action sequences that would otherwise require a close tight shot. These producers could’ve considered using a drone to capture some of this footage. It would’ve looked really cool to have some overhead shots of this fight scene. Perhaps these producers will consider looking into reviews of drones over at Dr Drone. That’s one way to make your film look even better! Flying kicks have never looked so cool! When George leaps from one trampoline to the other it is a true piece of art in the making.
