Scene Through My Eyes is a world first screen based drama, set amongst the lives and loves of members and patrons of a BDSM Fetish Club… 'Inner Sanctum'.  Its aim is to follow unique characters on their journey through the 'Inner Sanctum' and explore the taboo nature of fetish, sex and alternative lifestyles in an engaging, sensual, humerous, character driven, dramatic screenbased series.

50 Shades doesn't come close when there is an unlimited variety of colours, shades and tones to experience and embrace.

Scene is being made by the people who have run the clubs, developed the practices, adore the community and want to share their amazing stories with the wider world.

Each episode will focus on a different character, and tell the story of what brought them to the door and the journey they take once inside 'Inner Sanctum'.

Importantly, each story has a foundation in an actual anecdote, character or incident.

Director's Statement
Scene Through My Eyes is an Alice Through The Looking Glass screen based series where we follow everyday people as they walk through a door into another world full of mystery and drama (with dollops of humour) colliding with splashes of eroticism and the bizarre allowing for the total self to be revealed. A fascinating peek into the world of alternative lifestyles told through individual episodes.

My vision is to create a series that explores these unique clandestine characters through story. The imagery will be highly evocative in the Helmut Newton style of framing and pose.

The introduction of the characters will be in muted tones but once through the door the contrast and colour become richer and more heightened and camera work more dynamic. High key lighting will be used to create areas of seen and unseen.

The styling of the fetish wear will be created by some of the best master designers giving the stories a highly sophisticated ambiance along with a professional film crew who are well versed in high-end visuals and story-telling.

I look forward to having you join us on this journey to something new, exciting and revealing.

Salik.

Episode Breakdown

Initially, we will make 2 x 15 minute pilot episodes that will introduce some of the main characters and help set the tone for the entire series.

SERIES SYNOPSIS
'Inner Sanctum' is a place like no other, a home away from home and a realm between worlds. A BDSM Fetish club brimming with the drama, desire, discovery and heartache of its clients, staff and proprietors. A deliciously diverse collection of characters, all of them regular people living their own lives. Sensually, empathetically and sometimes humorously portrayed on screen for the first time.

EPISODE NOTE:
Each episode story arc will be laid over a seasonal storyline that will dramatise the day to day pleasure and pain, triumph and tragedy of participating in and operating an alternative, ground-breaking BDSM Fetish club in a mainstream and often conservative world.

Episode 1 (pilot 1): I AM TASHA
Táshá is a stunning Monroe-esque blonde Russian bombshell. A mother and partner through the glimmer of day, though as the moon sets over her city, she transforms into a flirty, scandalous and seductive creature, much to the delight of her lover Lex. She loves to be the focus of attention and knows no bounds on wanting to achieve it. Tonight's game begins, much to the pleasure of those stepping into ' Inner Sanctum' for the first time wanting to explore all they have heard, especially after their own unsuccessful and kind of humorous domestic attempts at BDSM. Encountering Táshá opens the door to the world of possibilities.

Episode 2 (pilot 2): A GIRL..... A WHAT?
Dee is a seasoned security person in the nightlife industry arriving for her first crowd control shift at the infamous club 'Inner Sanctum'. Believing she has seen it all, she will soon learn that things and people are not always what they appear to be. No-one demonstrates this better than Enya Crack an 'Inner Sanctum' favourite and close friend of Miss T. A non-conforming individual in ways you wouldn't begin to imagine, Enya Crack takes things to a level only a few have seen and try to get their head around.

10% Pre-production
60% Production
25% Post Production
5% legals/ business structure

The Challenges

Image courtesy of: Art X Photography

The interest in BDSM and Fetish has risen significantly in the last few years, and although there may be challenges when presenting real stories in this genre, our aim is to depict them in an honest and believable setting by showing real activity, characters and emotions in a way that hasn't been seen before.

Film & TV production is a collaborative exercise and getting the right balance of creatives, technicians and production crew can be tricky. However, with the collective having already worked on various interesting and at times slightly controversial mainstream projects, we’re confident to be able to source the required team which will enhance this unique project.

One exciting challenge is going to be setting the mood and tone on set for some of our cast whom will no doubt be new to the alternative lifestyle world and ensuring that everyone is comfortable with what is asked of them and seeing them perform to the best of their abilities.
