Los Angeles, CA, October 10, 2015 –(PR.com)– Blind Man’s Buff, an upcoming trilogy drama film, will be partially filmed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in mid-August after which the set moves to Boston, New York and Alaska.
The Trilogy of Blind Man’s Buff – The Game Begins, From Heaven to Hell, Revenge in the Name of Justice – is a psychological drama, action crime and thriller based on a life story of Andrea Vargas, a Brazilian MMA fighter who after having her daughters legally kidnapped goes deep inside an obscure world uncovering a tale of money, murder and power, remaining focused to save them, and get revenge on the mobsters.
The movie aims to uncovers the shocking truth about children and youth who have been stolen by a mafia and ushers you into the nightmare of child organs harvesting and sex trafficking ring, a billion dollar industry responsible to kidnap and thrown innocents souls in the dread world of pain, fear and humiliation.
“The filming will take place in the city of Rio de Janeiro, where scenes of Lapa`s streets – including Corcovado and Sugar Loaf – will be portrayed,” said Otwo Film’s Director/Producer Carl Battisti. “We are proud to say that Rio will not double for another city, but will be depicted as itself.”
Asked about the reasons for deciding to shoot in Rio, Carl said: “Brazil is an untapped beautiful location and the creative team loved the look and feel of Rio de Janeiro. We did a lot of research on cities in Europe that have not been seen in a lot of Brazilian-American Films and then shortlisted a few before taking a final decision of shooting in Rio.”
“The incentive also played a role in us finally deciding to shoot in Brazil,” stressed Singh. “You may be aware that the Brazilian-American rupee is not very strong against the currencies in Europe so we prefer locations where we can get an incentive to offset our costs. Also having a filming incentive sends a signal to the producers that the country/state is serious about film making and will cooperate to make the filming easy and successful.” A very diverse and international group of professionals will work on the set, which includes Brazilians, but American, Latinos and Europeans professionals.
The renowned special effects makeup artist, Greg Cannom – who has been nominated for nine Academy Awards and has won three Oscars for the memorable looks he created in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and Dracula (1992) – is being negotiate for the film. Produced by Otwo Film, ABX Pictures and Aziza Films, Blind Man’s Buff Trilogy is scheduled to release in autumn 2016.
