The Price of Ambition

by Storytellers

The price of ambition is a video essay that explores, success, ambition and the price that some pay for it on a mental and relationship level. Storytellers started this project with the idea of whiplash, black swan, Vikings and southpaw or other boxing films. Once Storytellers asked for the thumbnail design from Daniel Metzelf at Film Radar he added There Will be Blood, which was a perfect fit. Having all these stories in 7 minutes was almost impossible. Storytellers dropped southpaw and was unable to explore the relationship between Ragnar and his Sons and his relationship with Floki. Storytellers would suggest you check out The Choice by Zurik23M, a brilliant editor who tells the full story of Ragnar.
