耕耘 & 收穫
Viral Storm Productions International was founded by Jack Shao, who personally set-out the blueprint for an entertainment enterprise integrating talent representation, music, film, and creative endeavors.
Viral Storm got its start at Façade International Co. Ltd in 2017, as a separate TV and film production company. Over the years we have joined numerous productions, from Hollywood’s cinematic hit “Transformers 4”, and HBOAsia’s series “Grace” and “Halfworlds II”. Closer to home, we worked on the Hong Kong smash hit “Body Guards and Assassins” from Peter Chan; as well as “Winds of September”, directed by Taiwan’s Tom Lim; Ang Lee’s blockbuster “The Life of Pi”; followed by the Taiwan drama “Missing Johnny”, which featured internationally acclaimed director Hou Hsiao-hsien as executive producer, and was financed by Ye Ju-fen. Our acting talents have garnered many awards, including the Golden Horse Award for Best New Performer, Golden Bell Awards for Best Supporting Actress in a TV mini-series and Best Supporting Actor, and the Loviewer 20 award for Best Actor. Recent milestones include the Hollywood blockbuster “Project X-Traction”; Golden Bell Award winning director Lou Yi-an’s production “The Goddamned Asura”; and the autobiographical travel book “Climbing the Mountain with No Peak: Tri Fish’s Search”.
Sowing & Taking Root
In 2019, our screenplay “Bloodfolded” was not only nominated for the Ministry of Culture’s Excellent Screenplay Award, but then among nearly 400 film projects coming from 15 countries and territories, it gained a place in the prestigious Golden Horse Film Project Promotion.
In 2020, “Bloodfolded” once again was in the spotlight. Not only was it selected for the National Movie Plan, as well as for screenplay development, but a publication plan was also formulated, with a novel based on this screenplay slated for publication in 2022. Further laying testament to our production capabilities, we continued completion of various commercials and micro-movies, including “Life Moving Forward Together With You” for Cathay Life Insurance, and Franz International Rising Star.
Visual entertainment production and achievement are our founding principle and ambition. In addition to recruiting talent in the fields of writing, screenwriting, directing, artistic direction and music, in 2021 we also joined the New Media Entertainment Association (NMEA) to integrate and take root in local, multifaceted creative industries, and at the same time, take bold steps in creativity, and carefully lay the groundwork for cooperation with the movie and entertainment industries in the United States, China, and Japan. Moving forward, we will continue to launch film productions and related entertainment endeavors, such as the supernatural crime film “Bloodfolded”; the sci-fi suspense feature “Purple Butterly: The Time of Psyche”; the romantic mini-series “Overture (Overture?) 1314”; the fantasy comedy “Farewell Train”; the suspenseful made-for-TV movie “Undercurrent”; and the creative project “Secret Academy”.
"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.
