WUSHU – Behind the Scenes

Preface

First, an infinite amount of thanks goes out to my dear friend EFuzzy. Without his help and patience this project would never have completed. He endured much bickering and criticism during a personal time of stress, and I am forever grateful for the time he gave me for this project, despite how much he came to hate filming and my lack of communication upon the filming’s completion. A huge amount of work, time, and sweat went into this project, and unlike most of my assignments that I’ve worked on, this was definitely a two-man effort.

In general, I’m quite independent feeling-wise and don’t let such things get in the way of my work. This is not to say I’m not impulsive and don’t act based on my feelings; on the contrary, I’m perhaps a manifestation of impulsive. Rarely do I ever plan things for the future as I enjoy doing things only when I feel like doing them.
