A missing child.
A brutal and tormented victim on a mission.
Legacy, power and vengeance unleash a storm of violent devastation that may lead to a descent into darkness.
When we first meet Jacob, he’s docile, compliant. He’s kept in a dim cell. Paint crusts the walls. Dust dances in the hissing light. There’s a storm boiling inside him – an unquenchable thirst for cathartic liberation, driven by pure rage and ruin.
SCARLET STORM is a tragically sympathetic story about a haunted young-man confronting the past-decisions that irreparably rendered him victim and his pursuit of purging inner conflict, leading him to question, if we are but prisoners of ourselves.
This project defines ‘labour of love’. None of the core team are taking a fee, so that every penny donated goes straight into production. Well, almost every penny.
5% of the total raised will be donated to an appropriate metal health charity, to aid those who struggle with Jacob’s story.
It is a tale visceral in tone, muscular, unrelenting and emotionally raw, yet deeply compassionate. Amidst heartache and profound humanity, we promise flickering moments of humour in the darkest of places.
It is an exploration of mystery and morality, the decay of humanity and ethics. A brutal struggle for survival as Jacob stands an anomaly in his socially inadequate, apathetic world. In addition to having the stark intimacy and lyricism of a moody character study, SCARLET STORM will flirt with biblical levels of violence and carry the tension, velocity and entertainment-value of an action-flick.
The futility of loyalty, family, expectation and the consequential effects of manifested trauma resonate as major themes throughout the narrative.
To provide a visually arresting, powerful piece that refuses to condone the actions of the characters: it is essential to include the brutality and devastation of violence. This said, we cannot deny the satisfaction of cinematic thrills, and to that end; we promise you will laugh, scream, weep, wince and cringe, but we guarantee you’ll have a great time.
Believe me, SCARLET STORM will hit like a freight train!
