Check This Out: The Adventures of Kung Pao Master Short

Love kung fu cinema? Then we have a short film for you! Our good friend Sean Dejecacion, who is part of the always hilarious Bob $tencil crew, created this short film for their local San Diego 48 Hour Film Project. It's called The Adventures of Kung Pao Master and it went on to win the Best Writing Jury Award and Audience Award at that film festival. Tristan, who produces all the Bob $tencil content (and is seen in this), told me to check out the short film and give it a shout out this weekend if I liked it. And, well, I liked it. It's pretty hilarious and the concept is simply that these guys are sitting around pitching a kung fu movie idea.
The 48 Hour Film Project is part of a franchise of film festivals that features films written, shot, and edited in a 48 hour time period (which is pretty impressive). Because it won awards and made it into the top 12, it will also be shown during a 48HFP showcase at the Temecula Valley Film Festival. I hope this doesn't kill the Bob $tencil illusion for a few of you, but it just goes to show that this guy inside a bum who lives on the street all year around until Comic-Con returns (or maybe he does?). Obviously this isn't for everyone, but I had a good time watching, it's fun and funny and just some good weekend entertainment. Hope you enjoy!
