UK special effects man Tristan Versluis is about to start shooting his second feature film in Berlin next month, a sci-fi/horror blend entitled Omni. Tristan is best known for his dark, delicious flair with beautifully bloody prosthetics and painstaking CGI work. Check out his showreel here, and read on for more details!
From the Press Release:
Omni will be made by UK company Screaming Pictures in partnership with Ascension Productions and shot on location in the UK, Europe, and hopefully other parts of the world. Crew members that have already embraced Omni include Jonathan Edward Klahr, a trained special effects man from the days of Star Wars ep1, The Mummy, and Harry Potter; director of photography Stuart Nicholas White, who shot the majority of Versluis’ shorts and his last feature, Not Alone; costume designer Rachel Freire; and production designer Melanie Light.
Omni tells the story of an abducted woman, Abbi (Charlotte Hunter), recently freed from a Berlin prison after being convicted of a crime despite pleading innocence. Seeing her daughter for the first time in seven years, she celebrates. That evening she is taken by an unidentified object within a bright light and subjected to extreme experiments and surgical probing.
Abbi wakes to find herself in unknown and uncomfortable surroundings and roams by day searching for answers, learning why she had been a chosen one. Each night she is haunted and taken, only to wake again in a new location. Abbi has to fight to her freedom whilst uncovering a menace that threatens the planet’s existence.
