Guerrilla Filmmaking At It's Most Dysfunctional In The New Trailer For AGENT 6

Independent filmgroup Torrid Productions has a new trailer out for a new shortfilm on its way to this year's film festival circuit, and not without having a sense of intrigue. The shortfilm is titled Agent 6, and I 1st discovered about this project a couple of months ago by means of actress Bridger Anne Fox who shot her fight scene in the course of one particular weekend.

In my current dialogue with Bridger, she spoke extremely of the project, as well as co-star Pierre Parker, and director, Desciple. "We have been just having enjoyable and the fights were choreographed on the spot. I had by no means worked with Pierre Parker prior to, but we had some wonderful fight chemistry." Bridger also enthused that Agent 6 was the very best unscripted, guerrilla-style action project she has ever worked on, adding, "[Desciple] and Pierre Parker had been brilliant leaders/directors/collaborative coordinators. The fight turned out fantastic since they treated me as an equal and actually wanted my input."

I ultimately got to see this trailer soon after it had already been on the web for a couple of months now since its initial teaser was released in April, which was also a surprise to me. The idea of guerrilla filmmaking isn't old, but it is worth discussing as it brings an exciting new look on how a filmmaker like Desciple creates what he calls a "dysfunctional","hyper reality" action film. As far as "dysfunctional" action filmmaking goes, take with it whatever defintion you will, since it pretty much signifies precisely what Desciple says it is. No script, no pre-production and just plain entertaining.
