Back when I was in college, I had to complete a senior thesis film to graduate. I grew up on a diet of martial arts films and comic books, so I decided that I was going to make a martial arts movie. The end result of it was Red Fist vs. Iron Feet. It was the first time I ever directed and the first short film I made. I learned so much from the experience: scheduling, networking, the three stages of production, everything.
After graduating, a friend of mine is going to have Red Fist appear in his senior film. I revised the model sheet of Red Fist to better accommodate his film.
