The guys from National Film Society have also produced a new action comedy web series entitled "Awesome Asian Bad Guys!" premiering at CAAMFest on March 20 and 21 in San Francisco.

According the website, the duo grew up in the 80’s and 90’s watching hard-hitting Asian bad guys in flicks like "Die Hard," "Bloodsport," and "Karate Kid 2" which inspired them to make the web series.

"These badasses were often cooler than the heroes they fought, but they’d usually have a two-minute lifespan before they were mortally wounded or beat to a pulp. It really sucked that you barely saw them on screen and rarely got to know them. So we’ve decided to expand upon this largely-ignored slice of pop culture history with Awesome Asian Bad Guys!"
