Hello World!

Everything I have been involved with in my life has been male dominated: from Break Dancing, to Stunts, even Computer Animation, so I wanted to make an All Female Action Comedy Short, for a many reasons. A lot of the film fights I've done has been with Men. I feel women bring a different type of energy to projects, to the style of fighting, and the way they present them selves. Of course I'm inspired by Bruce Lee, and Hong Kong Film Fighting, but This particular project was not aimed to display amazing Martial arts, but more of some clean fun Action, with a simple story.

This Short is a small step in encouraging the world to recognize strong Females in Lead Action Roles.

I live to inspire Females to put their energies in to creative projects and activities such as Dance , Martial Arts and Stunts to empower and rise up against stereotypes of weak woman often shown in Media, Tv and Film.
