Funnel of Darkness

Navigating the precarious boundaries where sanity ends and weather begins; FUNNEL OF DARKNESS follows one adventure filmmaker and his team, chasing the American Dream...down Tornado Alley.

The IFC.com Original five-episode web series FUNNEL OF DARKNESS premieres on Dailymotion.com Monday, July 27.

Funnel Of Darkness is a comedy series that follows adventure filmmaker Keith Severe (Keith Cecere) and his team of storm chasers (Team Severe) as they tear through America's heartland in a race to capture the best up-close and personal tornado footage the world has ever seen. A modern day storm chasing A-Team, the men that compromise Team Severe are a rag tag lot of storm chasing misfits and rock and roll dreamers.

EPISODE 1 - "Team Severe, Come Out and Play!"

The competition is afoot, the girls abound and Team Severe is ready to win. Unfortunately, road holes and an unruly farmer stand between them and glory.



EPISODE 2 - "Severe Weather"

An old nemesis shows her face as Team Severe gets some new storm chasing gear and samples the local flavor of Oklahoma. The perfect storm shot lays just over the horizon, but will the boys get there in time?


EPISODE 3 - "Small Town Freaker Outers"

The weather has gone flat and Team Severe is in desperate need of a Tornado. The only solution is to throw a “storm summoning party” to appease the gods. Hopefully, the gods aren’t easily offended.



EPISODE 4 - "Anarchy in the O.K."

Still desperate for tornadoes and even more desperate for cash Team Severe takes to the stage and rocks out at a local bar. Channeling his spiritual guide, the character Bodhi from the world re-known film “Point Break,” Keith calls upon his troops for one final push to try and win the “Funnel Baggin’ Rally.




EPISODE 5 - "A Shot in the Dark"

With time running out, Team Severe cuts through the night, chasing down the biggest storm of their lives. Will it be enough to win the Funnel Baggin’ Rally? That’s for one crazy cowboy to decide.

News crews filming CR58 road blockage.

Large 40 foot high tree uprooted and across CR58.

Last night's storm tore through the west Denver suburb's with extreme force! I was shooting lightning shots from my deck but the line of storms that moved from Boulder to Castle Rock where so low to the ground that there were absolutely no CGs to capture.

At 10:45pm or so the west most cell went tornado warned so I hopped in the car and headed down to live stream the damage! Above you can see the deep hail drifts and large trees downed.

se CO supercell



Started out with Tony chasing the long-lived supercell from Burlington, CO down to south of Las Animas, CO. Along the way saw numerous cycles of the meso where it tried to produce a tornado. At times the wall cloud was churning on the ground with incredible RFD surges that snapped at least one powerpole mid-height! Encountered baseball hail by Lamar, CO that put a bunch of new nasty dents in my car before 3 of us pulled under a grove of trees and let the car-nage pass! The screen grab below was just one of the cycles that seeme as if something large was on the ground back in under there!

This day started out with only a slight risk to the south and no tornado probs. At the 10:30am SPC update - wow! 5% tornado and 30% hatched hail. Two tornado watches were issued and I took a half day of work off to chase it. Powerline snapped from straight line winds. Never did confirm a tornado on the lifecycle. Still tornado warned at this time. Ran out of roads to chase it!

Southeast CO supercell

Viewed from Las Animas. What a beast of a storm. Baseball hail. Tornado warned and wallclouds on the ground for county after county!

Burlington co storm!

Tornadoes possible in ne CO/se WY today!



Waking up this morning to what looks like another 3 days of slight risks on the high plains with today possibly being the highlight! I will definately be out this afternoon and live streaming the event on iMapTracker.

11am update: upper 60 Tds on the edge of CO with mid 60Tds into e CO. Cap looks breakable around Cheyenne, WY according to RUC. Convective temps of 80 F needed, already at mid 70s here. RUC breaks out precip around Cheyenne, WY at 21z.

SPC:
...CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS...
INCREASING UPSLOPE FLOW AND DESTABILIZATION SHOULD INCREASE STRONG
TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE FRONT RANGE OF THE CENTRAL ROCKIES
AND ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. DEEP
LAYER SHEAR WILL BE QUITE STRONG AND LIKELY SUPPORT A FEW SUPERCELLS
THROUGH THE EVENING...INCLUDING THE POTENTIAL FOR A TORNADO OR TWO.
HOWEVER...LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE PRIMARY THREATS WITH
THE MORE ORGANIZED STORMS. ACTIVITY COULD BUILD UPSCALE INTO A MCS
OR NEW DEVELOPMENT MAY OCCUR EWD INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS OVERNIGHT
WITH ADDITIONAL RISK OR LARGE HAIL/DAMAGING WINDS.


Also this is pretty darn cool - on March 7, 2009 I nabbed the first ever georeferenced live stream of a tornado for WDT on our iMapTracker - FULL STORY HERE!
