The 'Streets Of Myth' Need Your Help

 

Regular visitors to the site may remember that a few months back we posted up the teaser for a new martial arts web series entitled 'Streets Of Myth'. Written and directed by Brandon Kahn, the series takes place in an alternate universe where every neighbourhood is a fiefdom and everyone knows kung-fu.

Synopsis

At first glance, the Birmingham in Streets of Myth looks a lot like ours. The buildings look about right. The clothes are the same. The kids listen to hip-hop and hard rock. Birmingham's neighbourhoods are roughly the same too: Aston, Digbeth, Nechells, The Jewellery Quarter & more. But instead of a city, they are a loose collection of gangs and petty rivalries, tied together and policed by the weakened and corrupt forces of The Crown. These gangs aren't quite like our gangs though. They don't have guns. They have swords, spears and the ancient martial traditions of the Far East. Each neighbourhood has their own power structure, their own laws and their own fighting style. The Streets of Myth are a place that lies at the intersection of DJ's and dim-maks, kings and graffiti, B-boys and bloodied swords.

'Streets Of Myth' will star Zara Phythian and Beau Fowler, and the series is currently aiming for a Summer 2014 release date. You can keep up to date with the project via Facebook and Twitter, and if you like what you see then please consider donating to their kickstarter page.
