The time has come, kids! King of Miseries, Tom Woodruff’s prequel to his upcoming Fire City film, is here right now for your perusal. Check it out in its entirety, and look for more on the Fire City series soon!
King of Miseries, directed by Woodruff, is a stand-alone film that will set the stage for his feature length directorial debut, Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs.
King of Miseries stars John Robinson, Stacy Haiduk, and Denesa Chan. Writing-producing team Brian Lubocki and Michael Hayes, under their banner Okay By Me Productions, created a new story world called Fire City, where demons live in a fragile balance among us, but humans can’t see them for what they are. With a unique mythology, a world origin never seen before, a host of creatures, characters, and storylines, Lubocki and Hayes plan to slowly roll out their world to an avid fan base waiting for a new franchise, beginning with the online prequel King of Miseries.
The short film centers on a fortune teller in the demon world, called an interpreter of signs (Haiduk), who reads the fortune of a paranoid demon named Christopher (Robinson) and discovers he’s not telling her the full story. After forcing him to reveal he’s found a device, a chronolet, that allows its user to travel back in time, the interpreter pleads with Christopher not to use the device. Not only is it impossible for her to read the fortune of a past which hasn’t happened yet, the device poses too great a danger. Will he take her advice, or will he risk our future and his own for a demon’s chance at an untold fortune?
