Naruto and Street Fighter fan film team Thousand Pounds Action needs your help on their next projectPosted 11:03 am on Friday, July 6th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
The Thousand Pounds Action guys are known for their live-action martial arts action fan films of Naruto, Street Fighter, and Street Fighter X Tekken, and now they need your help for their next project. They are running a Kickstarter campaign to help make their original web series, Clandestine: Follow The Path, a reality. The series will be heavily influenced by martial arts films, video games and anime. It promises to make us engaged in the characters, story, and have us root for them during the fight scenes.
The goal is $75,000 in the next 25 days. So far over $9,000 have been pledged.
The story of Clandestine: Follow The Path follows five families as they fight in the shadows for power, pulling humanities’ strings. The young heroine, Adelene, finds out her true identity after all of her clan leaders, including her father, were assassinated. Now it’s up to her to defeat the enemy as the new battlefield general and become a warrior for the clan.
If you haven’t seen the Thousand Pounds Action Company videos, check out their badass Street Fighter X Tekken: The Devil Within short that was sponsored by Capcom.
And here’s my absolute favorite video from them that’s inspired by Batman: Arkham City.
The fight choreography captures the fighting style from the game.
