Behind the Scenes of Pound of Flesh


From YouTube: Come behind the scenes with fight choreographer John Salvitti and watch as John reboots the classic-JCVD SPLITS!! This clip is an up close look at John shooting the pre-visual fight design with his TEAM. This scene was eventually presented to JCVD and director Ernie Barbarash. If your wondering they loved it, signed off, and the scene is in the film!! ‘I thought of this scene in LA, really sank myself into what was written as a one punch-car chase but that punch led me to choreograph more punches, and as I visualized Mike Leeder in that passenger seat pull a gun, that was the moment I envisioned JCVD would trap the gun with his foot and be stretched out into a split as the car tried to get away’!!

Thanks to Brahim Achabbakhe for sending this our way!

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
