It is a medieval world. A military head of an elite group of warriors and an Heir in-line for ruling an empire have been exiled from their Kingdom. Together they face tremendous danger from powerful bounty hunters.

Director’s Statement

Protector was written in July 2016 as a pilot with a view to becoming a season. Being fully self-funded I was on a limited budget with a crew and had to get it all shot in one day. So I created a proof of concept short film, with a small amount of story and more action focused so that I could take this to Producers and Directors. From here it will be a case of shopping my idea out and finding someone who believes in Protector to develop this into the vision I have. I hope you enjoy the short for what it is and please do sign up to the mailing list on the website to keep up with the progress of the project!
