Miami, FL, October 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Sven Faulconer will compose the original soundtrack of “Undeserving Grace,” starring Yasmine Mejia and Aaron Jackson. The deal brings Director Dennis Delemar and Faluconer together for their first collaboration.
The dramatic story covers the rise and fall of a domestically abused mother and wife, Tamia Jackson. Tamia’s tumultuous personal life is in shambles, and after a series of reoccurring dreams, she sees death as the only possible exit.
On The Way Pictures is scheduled to release the film late 2012, early 2013.
Anthony Todd is producing along with Director Dennis Delemar in his directorial debut. Jeannette Garfalo, President of SafeSpace Foundation Inc., will executive produce.
With domestic violence being the theme of “Undeserving Grace,” On The Way Pictures teamed up with SafeSpace Foundation Inc. SafeSpace Foundation Inc. is a nonprofit organization committed to providing assistance to victims of domestic violence and their children by managing thrift stores that earmark all the proceeds to benefit the victims. SafeSpace Foundation also facilitates Direct Relief funds to provide the victims, their children and survivors of domestic violence, with the assistance to relocate, pay their bills and rent, as well as to empower them to become independent and self-sufficient. SafeSpace Foundation Inc. serves as the Advisory Board to the Miami-Dade County Advocates for Victims program which operates two domestic violence emergency shelters, two transitional housing programs and an outreach component.
“When I first read the script, it honestly brought me to chills,” Yasmine Mejia said, who stars as Tamia Jackson. “It is a very strong story, and it will be an impactful story that will be the voice of many women in a similar situation.”
Veteran Director of Photography Tom Priestley Jr. (ASC), known for “Barber Shop” 1 & 2, “The Thomas Crown Affair,” Second Unit Director of “Deep Impact,” and Second Unit Director of Photography for “Die Hard: With A Vengeance” was the Cinematographer for “Undeserving Grace” in December 2011.
In pre-production and on set, Priestley mentored up-and-coming Director Dennis Delemar. “From stories about Steven Spielberg first film “Jaws”, to learning about what it takes to be a great director in this industry, Tom has really been a tremendous help” said Dennis.
Post-Production on “Undeserving Grace” began in August in Miami.
Dennis came in contact with composer Sven Faulconer back in July of 2011. “I'm excited to be writing the music for Undeserving Grace, it will be my first collaboration with Dennis and hopefully not my last. The energy with which he produces and directs his projects, along with his inspiration and dedication is a rare trait,” stated Faulconer.
Composer Sven Faulconer was born in Belgium and started studying music at the age of 6. Faulconer has written soundtracks for several exciting projects. In 2009, he got hired as a music production assistant by Marc Streitenfeld (American Gangster), who at that time was composing the music for Ridley Scott’s feature film Robin Hood. After that, he was brought on as a Midi Orchestrator for 2 projects by Heitor Perreira at Hans Zimmer’s studio, Remote Control.
In addition to working on his own projects, he currently assists James Newton Howard, the composer of movies like The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Bourne Legacy and The Dark Knight.
Sven’s credits include movies such as The Bourne Legacy, The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Green Lantern and The Green Hornet where he has served as music assistant.
“A film with a message of this magnitude, a film which will inspire victims of domestic violence to become overcomers, needs all the right elements, and Sven’s music is one of them. I’m very excited to have him on board, and hope to maintain a close working relationship with him.”
Dennis Delemar is the Founder and Chair of On The Way Pictures, a company dedicated to independently preserve the spiritual, artistic, and integrity aspect of film, while making thought provoking, controversial films that restore the truth back to the screen. “Tag Team,” a modern day episodic comedy pilot, and “Who Are You Living For?” an epic thriller feature film, are projects currently under development at On The Way Pictures.
