SOLAR STRUCK
An anthology series in the spirit of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror.


DNA mutations caused by solar winds, occasionally give people all around the world unusual abilities. These stand alone films are the personal stories of those dealing with these unique gifts… and burdens.

Not intentionally, as we love this stuff, but the genre we work in happens to be one of the most popular ones on streaming platforms.

Besides financing and shooting The Shifter soon, we'll keep on developing more stories. We've posted some on our site and have a catalogue with many more.

 

We are open to collaborations, so if you're interested, please drop us a line!

Some of our stories:

1. Time Will Tell (Finished film, 65 minutes)

A teenage girl, who wants to keep her father in prison, discovers she can travel through time when passing out from stress. While traveling to the past, she’s faced with a terrible family secret she must set straight. This makes it necessary for her to take huge risks in both the past and present, jeopardizing not just her future, but her very life.

 

2. The Shifter (Screenplay finished, 90 minutes)

A man can only survive by forcing his consciousness into the body of a new host every few months, killing his host’s consciousness in the process. Now, for the first time in his over 100-year existence, a woman is destined to be his next host, a woman with whom he desperately tries not to fall in love – a task at which he fails miserably. So when his present host’s body starts decaying, he’s forced to choose between his own survival or the survival of the love of his life.

 

3. Live puppets (Screenplay finished, 90 minutes)

A young father turned paraplegic by an accident, discovers his mind can enter people’s bodies and control their physical movements.

4. Your future you

A young woman who’s frustrated about her life, discovers she can see the short-term future outcome of her choices. Her ability is a blessing at first, as she now makes the right career choices. But she doesn’t notice that her choices affect the lives of others for the worse. When she tries to use her ability to win the heart of a man whose love she thinks she needs, the drawbacks of her short-term successes start catching up with her.

 

5. Dream on

A middle-aged man who discovers he keeps on receiving someone else’s dreams, sets out to find this person. When she turns out to be a young girl entering puberty, he feels he needs to help her get through a rough period in her life. While reaching out to her, with the knowledge of her dreams, he must not only take away her fear of him, but also the prejudices and distrust towards him, of people surrounding her.

 

6. The Pain Taker

A man discovers he can take people’s illnesses, temporarily carry them inside his body and then give them to a different person. He starts moving the illnesses of good people to people he considers bad. Then he gives a woman a disease who in retrospect didn’t deserve this. Driven by guilt, he starts doing everything in his power to make her life goal come true before she dies, while hiding the fact that he’s the one responsible for her misery.
