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.)
