a little something about us
“Some stories, small, simple ones about setting out on adventures or people doing wonders, tales of miracles and monsters, have outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have outlasted the lands in which they were created.” Neil Gaiman
We are a group of entrepreneurial producers with a mission to produce outstanding content for Cinema and Television. Our backgrounds are strong in creative development, financing and production.

Christopher Eoyang is a nomadic US citizen working in international finance, largely in obscure parts of the world. His transition to film came naturally from his interests in nurturing uncommon talent in unassuming places, and extensive experience in global arbitrage. As technology creates a new equilibrium in film distribution, he believes content will be further elevated in the entertainment value chain. He has degrees from Columbia University and INSEAD.

Under the Shadow
Tehran, 1988. Shideh lives amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused of subversion and blacklisted from medical college, she is in a state of malaise. Furthermore, her husband is at war, leaving her alone to protect their young daughter, Dorsa. Shortly after a missile hits their apartment building but fails to explode, Dorsa falls ill and her behaviour becomes increasingly disturbed. Searching for answers, Shideh learns from a superstitious neighbour that the cursed, unexploded missile might have brought in djinns - malevolent spirits that travel on the wind. Convinced that a supernatural force within the building is attempting to possess Dorsa, Shideh finds she has no choice but to confront it if she is to save her daughter.
