The Acrotheos (10x60 Series)
When the evil kingpin Archaleus takes Kallisto's soul hostage, her lover Praxiteles and a small entourage must leave the Ancient Greek city state of Korinthos on a quest for an artifact known as the Acrotheos. This powerful relic, forged in the age of the Titans, has the power to change the balance of this realm and the next. For that reason, the gods chose to separate and entrust the elements of the Acrotheos to three immortal Guardians. Our Heroes will be tested at every turn, by allies and enemies alike, forcing them to weigh the soul of one person against the fate of the world.
'The Acrotheos' is a tale of love, adventure, tragedy and triumph set in a fictionalized, fantasy infused 350BC Ancient Greece. Drawing on various cultural mythologies from around the globe, it is 'Aladdin meets epic fantasy-styled visuals, with a touch of Indiana Jones/Firefly adventure and humour'.
'The Acrotheos' is the first in a series of 10-episode television event projects, collectively known as 'The Forever Legends'. Learn More.
After surviving the horrors of war, 4 combat veteran friends take a simple bear scare job providing security for a team of environmental scientists, working for a mining company.
Their mission: travel into the remote wilderness and investigate the source of contamination that is poisoning the water in a nearby, rural town. What should have been an easy job descends into madness as the very sanity of the 4 brothers in arms is tested while they are attacked by a well-armed group of relentless, deranged and disenfranchised outliers.
In the end, the line between man and monster is blurred and the road to hell leads straight through 'The Acres'.
Tomorrow's War (Feature)
In the tradition of Rambo: First Blood, The Hunted, and Predator, Tomorrow's War explores the relationship between skilled Hunters and their Prey. Set roughly ten years from now in the coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest, we follow a corporate tactical team as they are tasked with the capture or elimination of a man known only as 'The Contractor'. This tactical team will utilize all of the advanced equipment at their disposal to run down their Prey, leaving him with nothing but his wits and survival skills to fend off their assault. As the hunt progresses, the truth claws its way to the surface, and unveils the incestuous relationship between the military industrial complex and the government which it controls.
This story serves as an exploration of the justification of violence and the realization that the power to be both hero and villain is encapsulated within all of us.
