November 15, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Birth of a Warrior is the story of White, an abandoned child, left on the steps of a temple and raised in the Temple way. White is also taught every facet of defensive Kung Fu and its teachings. When intruders break into the Temple to steal a sacred statue, a temple girl, Sierra, is kidnapped. White, who has never ventured outside the temple, must now rely on all his training to grant his master's instructions to retrieve the sacred statue, save Sierra and fulfil his destiny.
Gordon Waddell and Scott Richardson will also bring their incredible skills to the project. Waddell has served as a stunt man and co-ordinator on many well known films including Australia, The Nugget, Rabbit Proof Fence, Two Hands and Street Fighter and Richardson is known for his guerilla style camera work on Survivor Australia, Survivor Guatemala, Top Gear and Australian Idol to mention a few.
