VISION FILMS TAKES ON “S.O.S. SURVIVE OR SACRIFICE” FOR DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL LICENSING
Vision Films Inc. (“Vision”) announced on Tuesday the acquisition of worldwide rights to the thriller that takes place in a runaway hot air balloon, S.O.S Survive or Sacrifice (S.O.S.), filmed in the stunning country of Cyprus. Starring William Baldwin (Silver, Backdraft, Fair Game) and written and directed by Roman Doronin (Portrait of God, Lift), S.O.S. will be released on all major VOD platforms in North America in October 2020.
Synopsis: A hot air balloon joyride in Cyprus takes a dangerous turn when it becomes untethered and the passengers ascend without a pilot. As they are pushed far out over the ocean, it’s a desperate fight for their lives where every choice they make could be the difference in their survival. The younger sister of one of the passengers is their only hope of rescue, but can she get to them in time?
S.O.S Survive or Sacrifice also features performances from Jeannine Kaspar (Iron Man), Marianna Rosset (Portrait of God), Zach Rose (Better Call Saul), Crystal Web (Ghosthunters), and Diljohn Sidhu (Gold).
S.O.S. Survive or Sacrifice is a truly international project: the production team, comprising highly skilled specialists from all over the world, not only greatly succeeded in working together on set, overcoming language barriers and cultural differences, but also completed post-production during the very difficult working constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic – managing to pull the movie together from different points across Europe.
The actors, producers, writers, graphic designers, colorists, composers, sound and lighting crews, costume designers and make-up artists hailed from the USA, Cyprus, Italy, Spain, Russia, Germany and the UK, and who all came together as one to create a movie that was technically demanding in many ways.
The movie’s unusual cinematographic premise of two spiritually strong young women stranded in a runaway hot air balloon also serves as a great vehicle to exemplify women’s independence and female resilience, strength of character, will to survive, and ability to overcome danger and impossible odds – something that reflects women’s lives all around the world.
“S.O.S. is a thrilling and terrifying hot air balloon ride with stunning photography and compelling soundtrack,” said Lise Romanoff, CEO and Managing Director of Vision Films. “We are very excited to be working with the Altadium Group on the upcoming October release.”
“I am both excited and proud to present our movie to film lovers all around the world,” said writer and director Roman Doronin. “Our multi-national cast and crew have created an exciting new adventure movie which will whisk you off on a thrilling journey to the far reaches of fear.”
