Posted in Emmanuel Manzanares, LBP Stunts with tags , on March 24, 2015 by Michael S. Moore

Its like a broken record, isn’t it? LBP does it again! Check out the above starring  Natalie Padilla, Vonzell Carter, and Michael Lehr. Directed by Emmanuel Manzanares. I’m not familiar with the manga/anime this is based on, but this was a lot of fun to watch, and I loved some of the kicking work done by Padilla and Lehr. Sequel, please?

If you’ve been a regular on this site then you know the praises I tend to heap on LBP Stunts Chicago, and you also know that the proof is in the pudding, and these guys are and always have been great. Now they present member Sifu Keith Min in a demonstration of Xing Yi Quan style kung fu. The transitions where the kata is shown  and then demonstrated on a live target is fantastic. This simply another reason why these guys need to get more exposure and work!

LBP Stunts Chicago is at it again! IL Y A TOUJOURS UNE SOLUTION (There is always a Way)

Director/fight choreographer Emmanuel Manzanares, along with Shawn Bernal and Anthony Pho, create yet another great fight scene, as it always is the case for LBP Stunts Chicago. Every bit of their work here is gold, and what I love the most is that it always seems to be part of a bigger story. They understand how to combine the action with, as Bruce Lee once said, emotional content. Someone needs to get these guys choreographing and starring in a feature film. They are that damn good. Check it out below, and then take a look at some of their previous work Yo Soy Un Hombre Loco.

LBP Stunts Chicago comes at us with another joint: DOGFIGHT!

Emmanuel Manzanares and Shawn Bernal, and everyone with LBP Stunts Chicago remind me of that Cowbell SNL skit when Christopher Walken says that he puts his pants on one leg at a time, but after that he makes gold records. Well, these guys also put their pants on one leg at a time, but after that they make kick-ass fight scenes with excellent choreography, such as this new one called Dogfight! Enjoy!

Indie Kick Trailer: Unlucky Stars (2012)

Argh! Still catching up on things after my injury, so this was sent to me while I was in various levels of consciousness. Emmanuel Manzanares and the guys and gals at LBP Stunts are at it again, helping out Director, writer and star Dennis Ruel, Vlad Rimburg and Ken Quitugua with this passion project. I love the entire group’s energy, ever since seeing LBP’s short film Yo Soy Un Hombre Loco , and they helped produce a trailer for a film they are still shooting and searching for funding for. Here is a great homage to the Sammo Hung Lucky Stars series, and dammit I want them finish this full-length feature film. Every scene just tickles my kung fu bone. It even feels like a Sammo Hung 80’s film! Even a single dollar can help, so now I’m rallying all Kiai-Kick readers to help out! You can donate to the film at http://www.indiegogo.com/UNLUCKY-STARS . There’s a pretty cool behind the scenes video as well. You’ll be hearing a LOT more about this project as it goes forth. I’m all in on this one!
