Streets of Myth

A live action web-series set in an alternate-universe, contemporary England where every neighbourhood is a fiefdom and every wrong look can end in blood.

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.

 

POLL: What do you want to see at BRUM-FU 3?

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

Brum-Fu has already screened films from directors Lau-Kar Leung & Yuen Woo-Ping and stars Gordon Liu & Jackie Chan. For July's Brum-Fu screening, we're moving on to Jackie's "big brother" Sammo Hung.

This time around, I'm giving you the final say as to what we screen. Your choices, in trailer form, are:

The Odd Couple. The best fight choreography of the three (and also, like EVER), particularly the weapons fights.

The Prodigal Son. The overall best film of the three in that the story and characters are almost as compelling as the action. Widely considered one of the best, if not THE best, "traditional" kung-fu movie.

And finally The Magnificent Butcher. The most controversial and divisive of the bunch, but also the first collaboration of Sammo and Yuen Woo-Ping.

 

So, what will it be folks?? Pick below!

 

UPDATE: Voting is closed. The Prodigal Son won in a landslide.
