耕耘 & 收穫
Viral Storm Productions International was founded by Jack Shao, who personally laid the blueprint for the company – integrating the entertainment industry with talent representation, music, film, and cultural & creative endeavors.
Viral Storm got it’s start at Façade International Co. Ltd in 2017, when Façade spun off its film, television and entertainment endeavors to form this new company. Our predecessor enjoyed a rich history in various film and TV productions over two decades, including many outstanding productions. For Hollywood, this included the cinematic hit “Transformers 4”, and closer to home, the Hong Kong smash hit “Body Guards and Assassins”, which featured the involvement of two international filmmakers – Teddy Chan as director, and on the production side, Peter Chan. On the little-screen, our footprint reaches to HBOAsia, with the series “Grace” and “Halworlds II”. Even closer to home, this experience extends to “Winds of September”, directed by Taiwan’s Tom Lim and produced by a top figure in the Hong Kong entertainment industry, Eric Tsang. Another blockbuster we were involved in was Ang Lee’s “The Life of Pi”, followed by the Taiwan drama “Missing Johnny”, which featured internationally acclaimed director Hou Hsiao-hsien on the roster as executive producer, and was financed by Ye Ju-fen. Moreover, our background is not just film and TV. We also have outstanding talents like Rima Zeidan, who racked up many awards, including the Golden Horse Award for Best New Performer, and the Golden Bell Award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV mini-series, and another actor received the Golden Bell Award for Best Supporting Actor. Most recently, Devin Pan captured a leading role in the HBO Asia series “Invisible Stories”, which got its theatrical premier at the 2019 Golden Horse Film Fest.
Sowing & Taking Root
Through meticulous planning in 2019, “The Bloodfolded” took its first steps forward, gaining a place in the prestigious Golden Horse Film Projection Promotion. The GHFPP includes nearly 400 film projects from 15 countries, and we laid the groundwork for future cooperative projects with numerous investors.
Now we’re actively venturing into the independent production of movies, TV and entertainment. In addition to filming music videos and short films, we’ve also forged an integrated and multifaceted creative team encompassing writers, screenwriters, directors, art directors and musical talent. At the same time, we are bravely innovating, while carefully plotting our plans to join forces with the entertainment industries in Greater China, Japan and the USA. This year we continue to greenlight several film and TV projects, including a supernatural crime movie, “The Bloodfolded”, a sci-fi thriller, “Purple Butterfy: The Time of Psyche”, the TV series “Room 1314”, the fantasy comedy movie “Farewell Train”, and “The School’s Mysterious Wall”, a script under development for repackaging and franchise.
"Viral Storm" is not simply our yearning for fame, but an ambitious, long-term plan to actively and steadily invest in the Chinese-speaking market through solid planning for fulfilling our dreams, as well as our unyielding determination for success. At the same time, we demand the best of quality in everything we touch, and strive to always produce a “wow” factor. We add this zeal and passion to the Greater China film industry, focusing on projects which are not only entertaining, but also mixing in elements of true-love, and social consciousness, with the ultimate goal laying the groundwork for limitless future.
