Together the creators of Chaos Rising have woven a tale of conflict, duality, and the grey areas within mortal warfare. They say, "War is never straightforward; we sought to construct an anti-hero versus villain narrative with understandable motivations. The idea of Chaos Rising transformed from a concept into reality; this is epic medieval drama, gore-soaked awesomeness and indie filmmaking at its finest. We hope people enjoy watching the film as much as we enjoyed making it. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved".
