Mortal Kombat stunned the world of video gaming in 1992 when gamers got their first taste in arcades around the globe. Almost three decades later the landscape has changed, but our passion for the franchise has not. Join founder Christopher Veljanovski and Markus “Toasty” Anstey as they talk all things Mortal Kombat and NetherRealm Studios.

A highly talented martial artist with incredible skill across a variety of forms, Ho-Sung also served as a stunt coordinator and stunt double for Raphael in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. He later reprised his role as stunt double in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, and starred as Henry in Jackie Chan’s The Legend of Drunken Master. — FOLLOW HO-SUNG PAK — Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hosungpak Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/hosungpak Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hosungpak
Mortal Kombat X: Generations with Nathan Haugaard
1:32:33Mortal Kombat X: Generations was a companion web series due to release shortly before the launch of Mortal Kombat X in 2015. Directed by Garrett Warren, its intended purpose was to introduce audiences to both new and returning kombatants, given the events of the game take place 20 years after its predecessor. Although it featured prominent names such as Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Lewis Tan, Casper Van Dien, Ray Park and Pepi Sonuga, it was ultimately cancelled due to time constraints and never released to the public. To learn more about this incredible project, we are joined by cinematographer Nathan Haugaard who guides us through uncharted waters. In this exclusive interview, we share numerous high quality images and hear stories attached to each in Nathan’s own words. — FOLLOW NATHAN HAUGAARD — Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nathanhaugaard
