LBP would also like to bring light to a good friend of ours from Germany, director Ulrik Bruchholz and his production team, FlatCOIN productions, which just recently premiered their first teaser to Ulrik's newest feature entitled "STRAIGHT BLAST".



STRAIGHT BLAST is centered in a world a few decades after the nuclear holocaust. Most of the human population escaped from earth and started new lives in outworld colonies.

The few who stayed on earth either live in one of the MEGA CITIES, which are controlled by a big tv station called NETWORK 22 or enjoy their freedom in SECTOR 7, the nuclear wasteland, which is crowded by different clans of maneating mutants. JOHNNY HUNTER is part of a rockergang called "The Psycho Dog Bros.". His days are filled with brawls, beer and boredom.
One day destiny strikes and he decides that revenge is his new best friend. On his journey Johnny discovers a new way to inner peace thru controlled outbursts of pure hate and aggression
.

He uses this skill to enter the most successful broadcasting event called STRAIGHT BLAST TOURNAMENT

Episode 2 of Rex Dickhouse, P.I. is now online!



Rex Dickhouse, P.I. - Episode 2: "DSD" from Emmanuel Manzanares on Vimeo.


Over the weekend, Asylum Stunts and LBP collaborated yet again on another "Rex Dickhouse, P.I." episode, this time written and directed by Alex Hashioka.

Asylum Stunts did the choreography, while Emmanuel worked the camera and edited the project. It's another goofy and nonsensical story, but was alot of fun for both teams to make. Enjoy!
