A months back when our pals Man Factory released the much anticipated Street Fight! Round Two--the second installment in their planned three-part power pop opera based around characters from the popular video game franchise--we got to chat with the boys for another site. Much like The Beatles' first trip to America their answers to our questions were often filled with half-truths and humerus witticisms, so when they mentioned back in March that a creative arts school was interested in turning Street Fight! into a full blown live theater act to be performed by elementary-aged children it was easy to brush it off as a witty aside.
Or so we thought.
Over the weekend Man Factory held a premier for their newest video for Round One closer "Balrog 24/7," and surprisingly enough it stars elementary aged kids playing the parts of Balrog, Sagat, and others as part of a school play of sorts. We've also been told the video, which was shot by the Luu Brothers, will be screened at the 23rd Annual Dallas Videofest in September 2010 at the Angelika.
The rest of Round One is also available for a "name-your-price" download model here.
