The Sword Identity is a new upcoming martial arts movie which is written by the person who brought us Wong Kar-wai’s forthcoming feature “The Grand Masters” Xu Haofeng.

Wicked!! Go the WuXia… can’t wait to check it out.
Great stuff… again, love the tone and texture. Great ideas here! Truly original work, and between the site and the blog, the scope of the work is quite broad in a great way! Definitely check out both links we’ve put above.
Unfortunately the pics are all locked up nice and tight so I can’t show you a sample that is the goodness of this photography. So you’ll have to trust me and go check them out. All the work is fantastic, but I mostly enjoy the moods of the location shots. Very cinematic in tone… love the vibe!

Imaginary Friends Studios was founded by friends, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, one of the top artists on Deviantart.com with close to 6 million page; Kendrick “Kunkka” Lim, a game designer who worked previously at a Tokyo-based game studio; and Kai “Ukitakumuki” Lim, who at 19 had already art directed two major game mods for Half-Life 2 including Hull Breach and Nuclear Dawn.
Imaginary is much more than a concept art, comics and illustration studio. With its “By-artists-for-artists” mantra and its small but ever-increasing cult-like online fan following, Imaginary truly represents a next-gen creative approach to the creative business by hot-housing its established and fresh new talents, delivering creative services and content to a global audience. <read all about them, and check out their work here>
Wow, really cool vibe. Bit of a collective of concept artists… definitely have to hook up with them!
