Keanu Reeves is directing a kung fu movie named ‘Man of Tai Chi‘. It’s Keanu’s feature film directorial debut — he has one documentary under his belt. I literally know nothing of the film, except it’s definitely on my radar now after the actor posted this proof of concept video.
Turns out, Keanu is using camera technology from Bot & Dolly, a design and engineering studio specializing in automation, robotics, and filmmaking, for his fight scenes. The rig is a robotically controlled camera crane system to fluidly take viewers in, up and around the flying fists and feet of the martial artists. [via reddit]
