New York, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2011
Demian Pictures is proud to be a part of The Cannes Film Festival, market of film this year, with a teaser of its upcoming TV pilot “The Sacrificial Lamb”. The pilot, which was recently shot in Connecticut and New York City, is in the final editing stage, and is planned to be completed during the Summer for a Fall 2011 release. With “The Sacrificial Lamb”, Demian Pictures will launch its first of many TV episodes planned for the U.S. market.
Demian Pictures was founded in 2007 by Jonathan Bucari, originally a Paris based film scriptwriter, director & producer, who has produced a variety of independent films, and whose company is now based in New York. Mr. Bucari wrote the screenplay for “The Sacrificial Lamb”, and co-directed the film with Harry Bozino, whose work is also being featured at the festival for his previous film “The Old Supremacy”. “The Sacrificial Lamb”, or what we call ”TSL”, is a work of pure joy for me. “I have searched a long time for the perfect location. I asked a real estate agency to find me a beautiful, amazing house. My script needed to be improved because of this location,” said Bucari, who called the filming “magic” and the house “impressive.”
TSL features Gabriel Rush (Brewster, NY) and Ryan Jones (Darien, CT) as its two main child actors. Gabriel Rush is currently filming with Bruce Willis in “Moonrise Kingdom” directed by Wes Anderson. Gabriel recently came off the Broadway musical “Billy Elliot” where he received rave reviews for his role as Michael “It was an honor to star in this film, Jonathan is a great director, and it was a lot of fun!” said Gabriel.
The TSL story is centered around a seasoned FBI special agent, who takes revenge on a senator by accusing a young FBI agent of being an accomplice in the attempt to kidnap the senator’s sons – Gabriel and Ryan. It is as suspenseful as it is full of action and twits – those who like the riveting tension will not be disappointed.
The film was shot using a Panavision camera and anamorphic lenses and processed by Deluxe, a combination that is typically reserved for movies and not TV pilot. “For a pilot this is very expensive and a huge risk. We're creating a very cinematic look for a TV pilot,” he said. "We may have gorgeous equipment but you have to have something to film," said Bucari, who believes he captured something “magical” in the performances from the actors.
