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.


The end of the Kickstarter of Myth

Hello people of Myth, well it looks like our first stab at Kickstarter didn't work out. Obviously Brandon's stay in the hospital didn't help, but there are a lot of other things we plan to do better next time as well. Either way, we had a lot of fun and we thank you for your support and kind words.

We're already in the lab working on the next Kickstarter of Myth. One thing were going to need for the next time is stronger marketing and advertising, so if you know anyone who is in inclined to help please send them our way.

In the mean time we are going continue free screenings of Kung Fu movies around Birmingham, so keep your eyes peeled for those.

Thanks for everything,

Team of Myth

Full interview with Eastern Film Fans and other media love

I finally met up with Phil Gillon of Eastern Film Fans, who's done an amazing job shining a light on south Asian cinema for years now, for a long conversation about how the Streets of Myth were born and where they're headed.

He seemed excited to be able to cover his home town for once! 

Hop on over to his site to read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. I come off a bit rambly, but I was enjoying a pint at the time so leave me alone.  

We also got coverage from some great martial arts loving blogs like Film Combat Syndicate, Martial Arts Movie Junkie, Far East Films and Kung-fu Kingdom

Lastly we got some lovely shout outs from some of the city's finest Twitterati (follow them all!): brumpic, Digbeth is Good, MyJQ and even Brum's own Kung-fu warrior, Scott Adkins.

Stay tuned for a couple of radio / podcast appearances in the next two weeks!

Everyone on the Team of Myth is thrilled with all the good vibes.

If you know any other publications that cover Birmingham (we're looking at you, Birmingham Post!), indie film/series or martial arts, hassle them for us!!


Thanks, as always, from the Streets.  




Some dialogue from the first 4 episodes for your eyeballs...

There are already a lot of fun characters with more than a few kick-ass lines in our first four scripts. We sent a few out during our Dialogue of Myth Tweet-a-Thon on Friday, March 7. In case you missed it, here is every line we tweeted, organised by character and district:

First up, Aston...


Bobby Lak:

  • "I don’t like your shitty neighbourhood or your shitty, overpriced sparkly bling and I sure as shit don’t like you."
  • "What happens if I tell you to fuck off?"
  • "I guess we'll take our chances. See you on the battlefield, Jimmy."

Ben Stone:

  • "He’s alive, last I checked."
  • "But you have to understand me and mine won't enter any alliance with you."
  • "And we mean to not be ruled. Not by anyone."

Vicky Holloway:

  • "That’s too bad, you’re particularly fun to beat on."

John Holloway:

  • "When you step out of this door, you’re a target. They’ll show you no mercy."


  • "I don't know, John. This bloke is a nutter is what I hear."



Jane Collins:

  • "An Elite is above all mindful; able to see only what he is presented with."
  • "Passion, strength, practice... they can make a great fighter, but they alone can not make an Elite."

Gary Collins:

  • "One day, soon, I'll be stronger than you. I swear it. And on that day, you better keep your fucking head down."

Eli Collins:

  • "Kill me yourself, child, if you've got the balls."

Bethany Marsh:

  • "If you know anything about me, you know I won't stand my citizens being taken wrongfully by anyone, Crown included."

The Jewellery Quarter


Jimmy Jenkins:

  • "There’s a war coming. And we’re caught right in the middle of it." 
  • "We let the rich districts control us. And they get away with it because we're too busy fighting each other."
  • "And if they can't get us, they'll come after our children and our grandchildren."

Alexandra Elk:

  • "I just don’t see how you and yours are going to come out of this."
  • "If you don't prove this to me fast, Stone, we're spilling blood right here."

The Crown a.k.a. The Free Zone 


Lord Oberon Wessex

  • "Now, what to do with you… Shall we kill them?"
  • "If they have any problem with that, they can stay in there for the rest of their short, miserable lives."



Walker Wei Shi:

  • "I'm not here to stir the pot. I'm here to fucking break it."




  • "A glass-jawed bitch like everyone else in Digbeth."
