Shaolin Boot Camp Documentary 3D – Coming Soon
Martial Art fans around the world will soon be able to enjoy the Shaolin masters like never before, when they release a 3D documentary which will seem like they are performing right in front of you.
The documentary will follow actor and martial artist Jason Scott Lee (Dragon The Bruce Lee Story), for 2 weeks as he discovers the true meaning to be a Shaolin Monk and the training they put themselves through. Shooting of the documentary wrapped last week and promises to bring something we have never seen before.
This will be the first ever 3D documentary about these Martial Art masters and this is something i am very excited about, Shi Yongxin, the abbot of the temple, tonsured Lee and guided his practice.
It is a co-production by China Intercontinental Communication Center, Beach House Pictures in Singapore and 3net, a 3-D television channel in the United States. The documentary’s premiere on 3net is scheduled for the beginning of 2013, with plans to have it broadcast in China later.
“Jason Scott Lee is very eager to learn. Shaolin kung fu is more culture, spirit and belief than just fighting and combat. I believe a true Shaolin will be demonstrated in the documentary,” Shi said.
Chan said Jason Scott Lee is perfect for this role as he’s not only a Jeet Kune Do expert but also has a great understanding of Western and Eastern traditions.
“In my childhood, I was obsessed with Shaolin kung fu when I watched Hong Kong’s martial arts movies. I hoped someday I would visit the Shaolin Temple and often wondered what it would be like to be a warrior monk. Now I’ve fulfilled my dream,” Jason Scott Lee said.
“If I say Shaolin kung fu, I think of fighting, medicine, practice and philosophy. What I’ve learned about Shaolin kung fu is about being mindful throughout the day,” Lee said.
