Crimson Black Productions is the brainchild of award-winning Director, Producer, Editor, Elcid Asaei. Born out of his passion for films and filmmaking, the label develops and produces diverse visual content ranging short films, music videos, brand promos and showreels.
Passionate about visual storytelling, Elcid followed an MA in Film at UCL with a spell in journalism and photography, before making his filmmaking début with the award-winning ‘Revolutionary Roads’, which premiered at Sheff Doc/Fest and won Current TV’s ‘Short Cuts’.
2020 is a big year for Crimson Black Productions, with pre-production on thought-provoking short film (‘The Water Cooler’), unique feature length animation (‘The Cage‘), and feature length neo-horror thriller (‘Second Coming‘).

The Cage is an in-development animated feature film that explores the question of what is “freedom”. Inspired by the writers’ childhood memoirs and contemporary issues around global conflicts, environmental disasters, forced migration and societal divisions, this original new voice in cinema is both personal and universal, and aims to provoke the mind and captivate the imagination.
