On November the 5th, 2011, STRIKE A POSE!!! Films celebrated it’s fifth anniversary as a website and creative institution.

¬†It’s been a somewhat slow year in terms of new content and videos for the site, but we assure you that will soon change. I personally make a State of the Pose address in the following video, co-oped by Joel and Denise Loukus of Apsis Motion Pictures– one of our potential future partners! Oh, and just so you all know, this video features a very, very special guest that I have never had the personal pleasure of meeting before. In person.

(Cause I’m lazy and busy)

Tonight we have a very special treat for our growing fan-base of BITE THE HAND!


We have an official teaser for you all to view! We hope you enjoy. Please share with friends and fans of independent film in the DC area!

Now, as you have seen from the teaser, we have no reason not to announce the fantastically opportune casting of:

JAY SAUNDERS as RED

Jay’s audition brought a lot of different elements to the table. We’ll be sure to post some behind-the-scenes stuff in the near future, but for now check out the photos of him in character as RED and send him a high-five through the internet! Out of an extremely difficult casting process, we were very excited to receive the Ninjas Vs. Vampires star as one of our lead actors!

Special thanks also go to two more awesome additions to the crew: Jake Weeks as audio engineer and Joel Loukus of APSIS as VFX guru. Without these two guys, the teaser would not be anywhere near as awesome as it’s concept promised to be by rising DP Habib Awan. We hope you agree that it delivers!

Thank you all for your continued support! Be sure to keep up with us on the Facebook Pages! Also be sure to find and favorite the new Strike a Pose!!! Films Fan Page on Facebook and follow Bite the Hand on Twitter.

I’d like to proudly announce that the next feature from Strike a Pose!!! Films short film will be BITE THE HAND, a gritty, dramatic hitman thriller, directed by Dylan Hintz, written by Tom Murphy, shot by Habib Awan, and¬† starring Paul R. Sieber. Find us on Facebook HERE! Visit the new subdomain website HERE!

Here’s the official synopsis:

A job comes along that Jack doesn’t like- whacking the wife and kids of his “client.” When he refuses, Jack knows someone will be coming to retire him, courtesy of his boss, Mr. Callahan. What he doesn’t know is Red is a new recruit with nothing to lose- a hungry dog looking to eat. Jack decides to try and educate the young killer that some orders are best refused, and some lifestyles aren’t worth living.

This project has been in development for almost a year now, primarily going through draft after draft of an excellent original script written by Tom Murphy. The story, conceived by Murphy and myself, started as a humble “two guys in a room trying to shoot each other” hardboiled semi-action flick, and evolved into the dramatic tale it is today- a darkly humorous mediation on the themes of loyalty, betrayal, and killing to live.

Habib Awan, cinematographer on Jack’d Up and All in the Game, will be shooting the film.

Already locked is actor Paul Sieber as Jack– a recently retired hitman who quit his job and has decided the life no longer suits him. You may remember Paul from such films as Ninjas vs. Vampires, Garden of Hedon, and Jebediah.
