I”ll let you know when to start combing your Netflices, lovely lurkers, but know that Team Bonzuko is involved with a movie being shot in and around Boulder and its environs. It’s called The Code. Jas is playing the Commander who disarms a bomb in our protagonist’s past, and Jenn is in charge of the blocking and stunts. Here’s the website for the project. http://www.thecode2012.com/
My only wish is that this was a live practitioner doing this with a lightsaber. ~Jenn
From the 1960s Batman movie. This is a nice compilation of the fights from said movie. Listening to the Blu-Ray’s special features it was interesting to note two things: one, that Burt Ward did most of his own stunts, and got injured a lot. He says he was in the emergency room 4 times within the first few weeks of shooting. Also, that the final fight on the boat was in a shallow lake, with bars under the water for fastening things. A stuntman dove into the water, smacked his head, and got a concussion (I think I can see which one he was–can you?). ~Jenn
