Trailer for Dolorosa Gioia aka Sweet Pain hits the web!

Feast your retinas on the English trailer to Gonzalo López’s bold thriller Dolorosa Gioia aka Sweet Pain, a film that I co produced under my Bruise Productions banner. So happy with this one!

The film was written and directed by Gonzalo Lopez and it was Produced by Javier Rueda and myself. It stars Amiran Winter, Paula Célières, and Cristian Monasterio.

Our Synopsis: “Carlo, a young music composer from a wealthy family, is going through an emotional crisis. When he moves to a new house he recalls the events that led to his condition: the moment he met Maria, his first marriage, his obsession with music, the infidelities and the brutal consequences of it. While the past returns in the form of memories, Carlo fights to recover his life, to old on to his desire to compose music and to retain his sanity. “

It is now seeking a USA premiere and worldwide distribution. Follow it on Facebook here.

Heretic at the Frontières Market! Lead cast, promo poster and synopsis!

Hey all! I will be at the Frontières Market in Montreal, Canada this year (under my Bruise Productions Inc. banner) and one of the projects that I will be pushing is HERETIC. You can feast your retinas on the promo poster (created by Alex Tuis) and synopsis below.

HERETIC was written by KARIM CHERIGUENE (Horsehead) and myself, is presently in development (i.e. we’re looking to secure the remaining of the funding either via private investment, pre-sales, or another producing entity joining us). The film will star the very talented PAUL SLOAN (I Am Wrath) and MARK LAWSON (One Life to Live), will be edited by MICHAEL NOURYEH (Drive, Batman V. Superman), JAVIER RUEDA (Un trabajo y una película) will DP, ELI DORSEY (The Last Witch Hunter) will handle the VFX and the film is slated to shoot in Barcelona, Spain come early 2018. Here is the synopsis:

“1149. William and Roland, two Templars, are on their way back home after losing the second Crusade. Both men are dealing with the weight of the war and of having failed God quite differently. Roland is repentant, attempting to correct his wrongs via good deeds and kindness, while William justifies his harshness by claiming that every hardship is a test and part of “God’s will”. As if the increasing divide between the two men wasn’t enough, they also have to face a slew of deadly obstacles on their journey through a civil war torn England while being chased by a mysterious assassin with an agenda of his own. The sudden presence of Anna, a bewitching woman, on their path eventually brings the palpable tension to a boil.”

The script hits a myriad of notes in one sitting. It’s an action/adventure, a potent drama, an exploration of faith/fanaticism and a mystery all at once. To say it is my passion project would be an understatement. More soon! If you’ll be at the Frontières Market and want to meet up about HERETIC, send me an e-mail HERE! Presentation, mood board and screenplay available upon request.
