Looking ahead to 2018!

Posted in Michael Moore on December 31, 2017 by Michael S. Moore

It’s been a really interesting 2017, hasn’t it? At least it has been for me, which is both full of blessings and a curse or two. I started my regular job as a video editor/photojournalist for a local TV station, which has been a wonderful experience, but it has come at a cost. Strange hours, no hours, and very little time to spend with family, and also with the El Gato Negro: Prey short film (more on that later), but it’s here, on this blogsite that it has hurt the most. I haven’t been able to post as many film reviews, interviews, and just general upkeep of the website, so for the readers I still have left, I apologize for not giving you the content you deserve! Now what will happen in 2018?

There are plans afoot for a major life change, that will affect everything in my life, but with the hopes that it will make everything better in the long term. That includes this website! I have many more films to review on the way, and I will be making a more concerted effort to review “older” films, in addition to the new stuff, and doing the new stuff in a more timely fashion. More interviews, more giveaways are coming soon!

For those who stuck around, you have my thanks and gratitude. For those who left, I can’t blame them too much. There are some amazing websites like Film Combat Syndicate and Kung-Fu Kingdom that are doing some great work and are well worth your time (in addition to this site of course), and I promise you’ll all see my El Gato Negro short film in 2018!

Kiai-Kick will fly faster and farther in 2018!

Thanks to all my supporters and friends: Carl Brezdin, Lee B. Golden, Brad Curran, Vlad Rimburg, Aaron Alexander, Dennis Ruel, Emmanuel Manzanares, Richard Dominguez, The El Gato Negro Film Team, and so many more but you all know who you are!

August on Kiai-Kick or “Where the hell have you been, Michael?”

It’s been a killer bit of time! Between continuing to recover from a bad back injury, I’ve been crazy busy! So where do I start…?

First of all, let me announce that my martial arts webseries/short film Cornered has been accepted to the MartialCon going on in Long Beach California on August 19th, 20th and the 21st! If you haven’t seen it yet, that’s a really good place to do so! It’s also a martial arts tournament, and folks like Cynthia Rothrock,  Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Harry Lennix (Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman) will be there!

I’ve also been hard at work on a martial arts video project that–if all things go right–you may be able to see on a major cable channel before too long! I had a great cast and crew, and I think we did it! I really wish I could tell you all more, but let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope I have big news!

And of course I’m still editing a little short film called El Gato Negro: Prey! But don’t worry, I’m catching up on movie reviews as we speak. A mix of old and new movies, and some micro-reviews of some non-martial arts films as well, and much, much more! As always, let me know if there is a particular film you want me to weigh in on!

All,

So we start the Kickstarter campaign for the post-production work on my second film, El Gato Negro: Prey. The video on the page has some really cool stuff, and we do show scenes from the film! Please go to the page here and donate, and if you can’t donate, please share! A lot of good people did a lot of hard work on this (including me) and I want to make sure we showcase their efforts in the best way possible, and the funds I’m asking for will do that, not to mention just making an awesome superhero film!

We are in the home stretch on this film, and if you want to jump aboard, welcome! I can’t wait to debut this film for all to see, but we have to get over this hump first! Thanks for any help you can give!

–Michael

All,

On other social media sites the countdown has been going for a few days now, but we’re almost to launch time, so I’d thought I’d give a little mention here. This Kickstarter will go toward the post-production needed to make El Gato Negro:Prey the best short film we can make it! You can check out our BTS photos here! Please share or donate with your friends if you can!

El Gato Negro: Prey goes into Post-Production!

And so production wrapped on El Gato Negro: Prey two weeks ago, and we got our last shot of a restaurant this past weekend. It was really bittersweet, as I loved working with our cast and crew, but now things enter into the phase of post-production, where we get to put this awesomeness together with editing and sound work and music! I can’t wait to let you all hear the El Gato Negro score!

There is also a photo shoot, and the official logo is coming soon! I can’t wait for you all to see the hard work that went into this project from so many talented people!
