2015 saw Golden Dragon host its first Action Movie Summer Camp at our former location on San Vicente. This week-long worshop was as much fun for the instructors as it was for the kids. Aside from intensive martial arts training, the students were introduced to the basics of acting for the camera, fight choreography, and script workshopping. Our Final Project, Once Upon a Time in China, was a sweeping success. The young actors' talent shone through as we explored a fun yet thoughtful story adapted by Master Valery Prosvirov. This will be just one of the many works released through The Gold Stanley LLC in the next few years. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed creating this film.

Its sweeping yet well-tailored message served as a proper prequel for the second installment, Dignity.
