WHAT INSPIRED US?
THE MOTORCYCLE MAN
Rewind your VHS back to 2015. Do you remember what life was like just five years ago? Stranger Things wasn’t a cultural phenomenon, and the 80s nostalgia everyone claims to be obsessed with now existed alone in the shadows.
Before I left the Marine Corps in 2015, I started developing a feature-length outline based on The Motorcycle Man short films. The narrative explored a small northwestern town trapped in a horrible situation during the early 1980s.
Without spoiling the dirty details, The Motorcycle Man outline included a subplot that stirred excitement within me for a potential dark thriller movie.
Fast forward to April 2019.
I crafted a 30-page script that expanded The Motorcycle Man subplot into the opening of a new thriller film. In May 2019, I seized an opportunity to direct a short film that built upon that universe called Shadow’s Edge.
WHAT IS OUR VISION?
RESURRECTING THE 80s WITHOUT REVISING IT
Modern movies set in the 1980s lie about one of the greatest decades in American history.
You might ask, how do they do that?
Well, the film may look like the 80s because of the vibrant set design, vintage cars, and tight denim jeans, but the 80s illusion ends there.
Modern 80s films, like most other cinematic experiences of the 21st century, are poisoned with leftist politics, social justice lunacy, and Hollyweird agendas.
We are disrupting the 80s revisionist history and removing the bullshit to make one hell of a movie. Shadow's Edge unleashes raw 80s nostalgia without the censorship.
If you are tired of Hollyweird movies, join our rebel yell in the lyrics of Twisted Sister, "We're not gonna take it!"
