So we come to the finale(?) of this series of fighting shorts starring Aaron Alexander and Donald Brooks, and there is even more to come as Alexander choreographed my upcoming web series Cornered, and Donald Brooks stars in said project. They are both just a small taste of what’s going on in Austin Texas right now, and there is even more amazing stuff on the way. For now enjoy what may be their final showdown…or is it?

Posted in Donald Brooks, Kiai-Kick Films, Michael Moore on June 11, 2014 by Michael S. Moore

This past weekend my DP Joe Lee and myself went in and all around Austin, Texas getting establishing shots and some B-roll. We were around town so much we ran into people we knew (hello, Spiderwood Studios!) and even strangers who recognized us on one end of town and saw us on the other side of town.
