To save his ladylove, a young cowboy must stand against a criminal’s deadly vengeance.
Limey’s shot the Sheriff! In the wilds outside of the Gold Rush city of San Francisco, there’s one lawman for every fifty men of ill repute. One train robber, a British exile nicknamed ‘Limey,’ has just put two bullets in Sheriff Eli.
Young Phineas Creed rides his steed through the night hoping he’s not too late. Phineas burst into a makeshift medical tent to find Sheriff Eli in agony. Phineas vows vengeance on Limey but his mentor stops him. The Sheriff tells Phineas that Limey has taken his daughter, Greta. He pulls off his badge, gives it to Phineas, and with his dying breath, he tells Phineas how to find Limey.
Ride with Phineas as he and his faithful steed Adair gallop to save Greta, his ladylove!
Cowboy Creed is a short film Western-with-a-twist written by our Ben Alpi. Dubbed a “mini epic,” this period piece features classic Western elements and grand vistas, horses, six-shooters, and fisticuffs. Cowboy Creed is taken from of a larger, feature-length film we’re developing here at Runic Films. Similar in tone and purpose of the short film, the feature expands greatly on Phineas’ search for his place in a tough post-California Gold Rush world.
