United Front Games’s Sleeping Dogs is an upcoming action title that takes inspiration from Chinese action flicks. It looks pretty damn interesting in it’s melding of styles but in a roundabout way, in coordination with Machinima.com, has released a short film based on Sleeping Dogs.
According to Reddit, the short film apparently took 3 days, shooting in 12 hour days, and half a night to get the first motorcycle shot. Live-action kung-fu fighting, borderline “huh?” acting and melodrama, but hey, kung-fu!
It’s great fun, and definitely warrants a look. Props to all involved.
