Balrog: Behind the Glory Movie Poster

Need another reason to attend Evo 2011 this summer?

It is my pleasure to introduce Balrog: Behind the Glory – an independent short film presented by an awesome, creative, dedicated group of Street Fighter fans! It will premiere on July 31st at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, on the Evo Championship Series grand stage.

Balrog: Behind the Glory explores the meteoric rise and fall of one of the world’s most iconic boxing legends. In documentary format, it follows Mike Bison’s transformation from heavyweight champion to international crime syndicate underboss. To this day, M.Bison’s true story remains shrouded in mystery and his whereabouts unknown.

The screenplay was written by Brett D. Bayonne, produced by Greg Gertmenian, and directed by Vahe Gabuchian – with cinematography by Tigran Tovmasyan, costume design by Hunter Wells, and makeup by Sarah Dorsey. (Check out Chicken on a Pizza for a look at the last comedy project Vahe, Brett, and Greg shot together.)

    I hope these guys receive a ton of support for this project, because it’d be awesome to see them continue making high-quality fighting game related films. I know they definitely want to keep going, but they basically went all-out for this one and now they’re all broke, haha.

    To be honest i have no clue how the movie industry works, but they can probably obtain funding for future projects if this video ends up getting like a million views on u2b or whatever. So that’s more or less the goal, i suppose.

    Anyway Vahe’s been a friend of mine for a couple of years and he introduced me to Greg and Brett a few months ago. All three of them are awesome people, and so is everyone else we brought in to work on this project. I don’t know the first thing about making movies, so i just tried to help in whatever random ways i could think of. But it was a pleasure being involved.

    Seems very interesting, can’t wait to see it. I like that it’s not just another Ken vs Ryu short film.
