Thanks for dropping by our page. My name is James Henry and in 2020 I came up with a female-led psycho-thriller concept for a digital series called "Frayed Rope." I worked on the concept for a few months and eventually wrote a script for it. 

In 2021 that script won two screenplay competitions Including the 26th Annual Fade In Awards Horror Competition (semi-finalist) and the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival (overall winner). 

Upon encouragement from feedback from the competitions, I decided to produce the script as an actual real independent film on location in Osaka Japan. 

In the summer of 2021 renowned Tokyo-based actor-producer, Dante Carver came on board as a co-producer and we started casting, crewing up, and pre-production. In March of 2022, we completed an important test shoot in one of the early episode's proposed locations. Now we are preparing to continue and hopefully complete initial photography in the Fall/Winter of 2022, but we need your help. 

This is a completely self-financed endeavor, and personal funds are drying up quickly. The goal is to finish production in 2022 and post-production by mid-2023. At that time, we will be entering the festival and film market circuits for potential global distribution and partnerships.

For the first season, there will be ten 10-minute episodes and we are adhering to high-quality standards and goals for our production and post-production. Some things are still in development (such as merchandise), but the momentum for this project is really heating up in 2022.

If you promote global Asia-US collaborations, female-led stories, and Diverse filmmakers creating unique content, then I hope you join us on this creative journey! 

Thanks again for visiting!
