I am the writer and director of this feature film.
I have always had an interest in psychological thrillers. I am thrilled that we can present our film project on this site ... and the possibility that
backers around the world will be able to participate in making this dream ... a reality.
"A Silence Within" is a psychological thriller with Latin music about a troubled woman who commits a series of crimes and is forced to flee
back to the city where she encounters her twin sister, her past, and murder. It is an English language full-length feature film that combines
action, romance, and suspense.
We have traveled to Colombia to scout locations. We met with actors, talent agencies and production companies. Colombia is known for
having a very well-established film infrastructure as well as their talented cast and crews. And, it is cheaper to shoot in Colombia.
Once we are funded, we will travel to Colombia and begin our preproduction and production schedule.

We have spoken to several distributors. They have all expressed interest in the film project. They have asked us to contact them once we are
funded and we can show them a rough cut of the film. We plan on having a screening for them.
We have contacted a few US talent agencies. They are also interested in being involved in the film project. If we our able to raise our projected
budget, then we can cast a couple of American stars.
What is the synopsis of the film?
A Silence Within is the story about a disturbed Hispanic woman whose life is spiraling downward in a pattern of destructive behavior. Both
Fabiana and her twin sister, Sabina are tormented by their childhood memories of an abusive father. While Sabina remains good and faithful to
the church, Fabiana turns to a life of crime and is forced to change her identity and flee back to the city. Fabiana is able to find work as an
opening act in a night club and engages in a torrid affair with a handsome nightclub singer. But, in a moment of passion, she once again turns
to crime and walks down a one way street of no return. What follows is a series of twists and turns that will finally settle the question of … who
will live and who will die!
Will you making the film in English?
Yes. All of the actors from Latin America are fully bilingual.
Have you thought about having an English and Spanish version?
Yes. We are interested in shooting a film simultaneously in both English and Spanish and release both versions in domestic and international
markets. Four or five takes in English. Then, four or five takes in Spanish. All of the actors are looking forward to this challenge.
Have you thought about shooting the film in the US?
Yes, but after making trips to various locations in Colombia, meeting with the talented casts and crews, and that it is less expensive ... it makes
sense both financially and logistically ... to shoot the entire film on location in Colombia.
What format will you be shooting in?
We will be shooting in Sony HD.
What will be the total running time of the film?
The film should run about 90 to 95 minutes long.
Why are you interested in using film noir in the film?
A Silence Within will use the style of film noir to explore the romance, passion, the sorrow, and the triumph of a deeply human story that is
common to us all. Against that backdrop of a celebration of an ever-popular thriller genre, A Silence Within is intended to offer all of its
audiences a portrait of a woman who runs away from her responsibilities and pursues a wild and reckless lifestyle.
A Silence Within will provide another fresh and new prospective on film noir and Latin music … yet the themes of loneliness, love and the
struggle to find peace in one’s life is still universal to a global audience.
Do you have any other feature film projects that you intend to shoot in Latin America?
My producing partner, Simon Barron will be co-producing the film.
