From the very first short film made by the teenage cousins over 10 years ago, Amazing Factory has been built on a passion for film-making. Each of the members have achieved success separately with documentary projects for CBC and most recently cinematography for 'Midway', which premiered at TIFF, and 'Brony', which premiered at Tribeca and has a wide theatre release this summer. However, the dream has always been to make a feature film together.
'Violent' is the realization of this dream. Filmed entirely on location in Bergen, Norway, in Norwegian (which none of the filmmakers speak), it was an incredibly ambitious step into the world of feature film. 'Violent', written in collaboration with the We Are The City album of the same name, borrows themes from the album as well as musical cues in the original soundtrack written by the band.
