It’s a couple of days late, but keeping up with tradition I’d like to wish cast and crew member Rob Ramirez a belated Happy Birthday from STRIKE A POSE!!! Films.

As per part of his birthday present, I will release a horribly amusing picture from the Gallery for the whole of the internet to see!

Rob has been with STRIKE A POSE!!! Films since the early days, starring in such wonders as Locked Blades and the now-classic “Joe Belivitz in: Car Trouble.” His most recent cinematic achievement was starring with the guys in Line of Sight (pictured above) for which he also garnered a credit as Fight Choreographer.

Also in celebration, Rob’s Cast and Crew page has now gone live. Rob is the second cast member to receive such an honor, so be sure to check it out and congratulate him, as well as give him his best on this most holiest of occasions!

Thanks Rob, and Happy Birthday, without you, we certainly couldn’t STRIKE A POSE!!! WACHAAAA!

The scene:
Club Orpheus, Baltimore.
The Event:
N-Code
The players:
Binary Gaming. Eclipse. And…

MAX ACTION.

On the third Friday of every month, Club Orpheus in downtown Baltimore hosts a theme night called N-Code, dedicated to ACTION PACKED gaming, anime, nerd culture, and awesomely loud bass-tacular electronic music. This past month, Max Action made his first OFFICIAL appearance and brought the TRUE ACTION to the amazing little club off of Pratt St.

There was drinking, dancing, and lots of gaming involved, with people playing Soul Calibur, Halo Reach Street Fighter, and various other awesome games. The crowd stomped the floor in echo of the booming bass, and and a projector played scenes and AMVs from Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Devil May Cry, Ikki Tousen, Macross, Gantz, and more, fusing with the light show to create an awesome night of MASSIVE ACTION.

Many of the Strike a Pose!!! cast and crew members also showed up, including Robert Ramirez, Julio, and Rob Moroney. DJ G4057, AKA Damien from some of our older movies, hit the tracks and produced some righteously awesome beats for the crowd to cause calamity to. DJs Umbris and Raverfox (David Zimmerman) unleashed their sets with mucho gusto as well, turning up the heat in the nicely-sized alternative club from “this is mildly boiling” to NAPALM DEATH!

Max got on the mic later on to help pump the crowd up, and and in a week or so we’ll haves a few of the words he had to say for all his fans to hear!

All in all, it was a great night. Max Action is now an official sponsor and co-host of N-Code, and for the October 15th event, he will be helping to co-host the video game portion of the night. He’ll be on the internet himself in the next week to make an announcement about the event, but for now, enjoy the poster art and locate the event on FB!

Also- we’ve put more pictures from the night up on the gallery page for Max Action, as well as on his Facebook Page. Be sure to check them all out and comment on Facebook if you got the time!

So the other day at the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom released it’s trailer for the newest Devil May Cry game. The franchise has long inspired my film making and style, and even inspired me to make one of my most well received videos!

However, when I excitedly went to see the trailer on Gametrailers.com, waiting for the player to load with joyful glee such the likes as a kid on Christmas eve, I saw some things I never expected.

So everyone out there on the internet, what do you think of the changes made to our boy, Dante, in the new DMC?

I just wanted to make a brief post with shout-outs to all the wonderful people whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the 2010 Intervention Convention in Rockville, MD! It was a great time, and I look forward to being as big a part as I possibly can next year!
Here’s my report:

I went to the convention for only one day, Saturday, not expecting anything too intense but hoping to have a good time. Well, it just so happened that for a virgin convention that came out of nowhere in a Rockville Hilton- I totally had a HELL OF A LOT of BOTH! Read the rest of this entry »

Westhavenbrook, our sorta adopted-older-brother-that-doesn’t-quite-know-it-yet (see Street Fighter: Alpha the movie), has released the awesome second part to their webseries, Battle Jitni in: The Danger Element. See part one here.

SYNOPSIS:

Doctor Trevor Elymas (Doug Jones) is only one step away from completing a diabolical plan. Battle Jitni (John Soares), member of a secret order of vigilantes, must wrench The Danger Element from Doctor Elymas’ grasp before it can be stabilized and installed in his machine.

Battle Jitni has escaped the clutches of Doctor Elymas with the Danger Element, but a new party has taken interest. Persued by mister Saltzman and his mysterious employer, Carlotto, Battle Jitni finds unexpected help.

Westhavenbrook’s sci-fi-fantasy-martial-arts-steampunk adventure is the latest flick in a long chronichle of video’s featuring John Soares’s action hero character, Battle Jitni. Second only to Ronnie Cordova in notoriety, John and his team’s work with this character and other’s have been a constant inspiration for STRIKE A POSE!!! Films. Make sure to support this one- the fight scenes in it kick modern-day Hollywood’s ass!

Be sure to check out their website and new Youtube Channel for more AWESOME videos from the guys that brought you Sockbaby, Gauntlet of Sorrow, and Go Sukashi!
