Pump it Up: The Warrior’s Path was quite an ordeal. Eight months of filming… drama… and a lot of other shit.
But I have been able to work with some really special people that just mean the world to me, because that’s just how I roll.
-Missing Story arks.
We have a couple of story arks missing. First of which was going to lead into the third movie.
We never really explained what happened to SupTrashCan in the first movie. We were going to explain it. Here’s the unfinished scene.[vimeo 69858508]
We actually lost some of the footage with Josh’s tantrum so that entire story ark was lost along with it. This also lead up to the third movie where he would be the main villain. We may include this footage in the third movie still, but I don’t know yet. I still need to put the last few things in motion before all that happens.
Secondly, I really applaud my cast for compensating for this part… the whole damn movie was supposed to focus around a new character, Cody. We shot quite a few scenes with this character. But again, thanks to Josh… we lost a good 20 minutes of movie and forced me into a storm of rewrites. We had all kinds of gay jokes, black jokes. It was hilarious. But that’s just how it goes. Some folks are just in it for themselves.
Originally, I wrote it that Lily will would be killed upon exiting from the final battle scene. Again, because of Josh, we just didn’t have time to shoot said scene. And we won’t be having that actress back this time either, so Lily’s death will be handled off screen in the third movie.
Earlier drafts had Yvette being killed after the final battle. This was changed because the day of filming is when I thought a sequel would be fun.
We also have some extra footage too. Maybe I’ll upload some of the raw stuff.
