Wing Chun sa Pilipinas | Documentary Short

by Trip Shaffer
(Osaka, Japan)

A cinematic documentary short (20 min) about Wing Chun Kung Fu being introduced to the Philippines. Shot over a period of two weeks in Manila & Laguna. Featuring Sifu Steve McGowan & Sifu Robert Greene. Also featuring actor Raymond Bagatsing and the rest of the Golden Harvest team.

This is a look into how Golden Harvest is bringing Bruce Lee’s original art form to the Philippines. The goal of this video wasn’t to really make a documentary…but to help Golden Harvest as a client video. I had a AMAZING time shooting with these guys. They were very easy to work with, and gave me tons of creative freedom when shooting. We were able to go to the mountains of Laguna which was a beautiful scenic location full of waterfalls, jungles, and mountain landscapes. I couldn’t help but take tons of time lapses of the fluffy clouds. I can’t wait to go back to the Philippines!
