John Soares vs. Dylan Hintz

Possibly our last post of 2014, we’d love to share with you a short test fight featuring the DC Stunt Coalition’s Dylan Hintz sparring with his own “professional hero” John Soares.

Dylan-vs-John-Soares

John is the legendary co-creator of Sockbaby, and co-founder of Westhavenbrook. He also has created from the ground up the incredible webseries, “The Danger Element“, in which he plays his flagship character, Battle Jitni.

 

Though they had never met in person, John and Dylan managed to cook up this nearly-non-stop minute of fighting in just a couple of hours and, thanks to Cassie Meder’s incredibly keen eye, film it on the spot. Thank you John for inviting Dylan on the first of what will be called a DCSC “Warrior’s Pilgrimage” – as inspired by the term “Musha shugyō” used in Street Fighter Assassin’s Fist .

Even cooler to note: this fight was featured on Film Combat Syndicate’s HIT LIST, along with action flick masters from The Stunt People‘s Eric Jacobus, Thousand Pounds Action Company’s Vonzell Carter, and Tak Sakaguchi/Yuji Shimomura of VERSUS fame. Each of these guys has had an influence on the creation of the DC Stunt Coalition, whether as an organization/production company with similar goals, or just getting co-founder Dylan Hintz’s action gears turning at one point or another with their incredible style. It’s a real honor to be featured amongst them!

At the end of the day, it’s no secret that Dylan’s career trajectory was influenced and inspired by the Westhavenbrook team’s antics, so seeing these two guys go at it is definitely a unique experience. With a limited amount of practice, they matched styles fluidly in a Shaw-brothers-esque old-school kung fu duel we hope you’ll enjoy!

In celebration of it’s successfully funded (and twice over!) Kickstarter Campaign, we’re releasing the full-length version of our Sam and Fuzzy promo video,  “The Underground: Travis the Taxi Driver and the Really Strange Day” via our own YouTube Channel. Get ready for seven minutes of the strange, bizarre, and the most excellent! Fig Pigs, vampires, and ninja mafia fights await you in this short film by DCSC, commissioned by the incredible game makers at Damocles Thread Development!

The Underground: A Sam & Fuzzy Role-Playing Game is a tabletop RPG created by Damocles Thread Development and cartoonist Sam Logan, using mechanics built from the ground up and tailored to the unique universe of the Sam & Fuzzy comic book.

Watch as Travis, just your every day taxi-driver-delivery-guy, has to deal with all the insane and bizarre things working in the Underground has to offer him! Using the COPE game mechanic, the stranger something is, the better he can fight!

The DC Stunt Coalition’s first major in-house production – we cast, shot, choreographed, edited and helped get the Underground’s Kickstarter campaign over x2 it’s stretch goal!

Site Update and Grand Re-Opening 11/28/2014

Welcome back to the DC Stunt Coalition main website! Back online after a brief hiatus, if you’ve found this, you’ve found our internet HQ.

There is still more work to be done including bringing in more portfolio pieces – photos, videos, and member profiles. But in the meantime, we just wanted to provide a web-searchable site, that has as up-to-date info as possible on our projects, services, and membership information for everyone to find.

We have some BIG announcements coming soon. But we’ll be adding blog posts at least once a month if we can help it!

Stay Safe!
