With rarely seen footage of Bruce Lee and introduction by his daughter Shannon Lee, the Los Angeles Local EEO Committee invites you to join some of the preeminent martial arts stunt performers and motion capture artists working today to discuss martial arts as a “game-changer” in the stunts and American film/TV industry; its influence in introducing diverse performers into entertainment and the overall craft and industry of martial arts stunt work. An added bonus will be a screening of rarely seen fight and interview footage of the master and legend himself, Bruce Lee, with introduction by his daughter, Shannon Lee and commentary by his god-daughter Diana Lee Inosanto.
Panelists will include stunt and fight coordinators Benny “The Jet” Urquidez (Shanghai, Pearl Harbor), Simon Rhee (Terminator Genisys, Mistresses), and stunt performer Crystal Santos (CSI, True Blood), motion capture artist TJ Storm (Deadpool, Godzilla), stunt performer and director, Diana Lee Inosanto (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) and Michael Matsuda (author and founder of the Martial Arts Museum). This event will be moderated by Peter Kwong (Big Trouble in Little China).
