Escape from North Korea

2019 | Action | Comedy | Short Film | More info on IMDb


Action movie with the Ninja facing off against genetically-enhanced super-soldiers, kung fu masters, monstrous beasts, and of course the Supreme Leader.

In a distant 1980’s future, America’s Last Ninja must save the First Daughter of the United States from the Supreme Leader of Neo-North Korea. It throws every 80's pop culture icon at you from ninjas, nazis, lasers, kung fu, giant robots, and off-world excursions.

Deep behind cyber-punk enemy lines!

Escape from North Korea is a sci-fi comedy filmed as a homage to 80's action films. Funded through Kickstarter, it was filmed over the course of three years and completed with a skeleton crew to stay within budget. Almost the entire film was shot against a 9'x10' green screen.

My name is Keith Eng and I have over 10 years of experience in professional filmmaking and post-production. I also won an Emmy Award in 2010 for motion-graphics and editing. I have created video for broadcast agencies like NBCUniversal and tech companies like Yahoo. In 2016 I left NBCUniversal to pursue my own dream of making this film. It's been an incredible journey and I've learned the hard way just how difficult making a film can be. However, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is my dream.
