Stephen King’s “The Talisman”

August 19, 2008

This is a demo film by director Mathieu Ratthe in an attempt to secure the rights to make Stephen King’s “The Talisman” into a feature film.  Ratthe explains below:

“The Talisman – “DEMO SCENE” is based on a novel by Stephen King and Peter Straub.

My main objective for creating this piece is to demonstrate my directing ability and my vision to the producers who own the rights to the story: STEVEN SPIELBERG & KATHLEEN KENNEDY.

Among the key players who lent their support to this project are Cameron Bright (X-Men: The Last Stand, Birth) who starred in the leading role, the Montreal-based company Buzz Image (300; The Aviator) who created the visual effects. The scene was shot in two days.

The Shining scared the crap out of me as a child.  I haven’t been able to spend a winter in a secluded, boarded up hotel for an entire winter since…….

And……the original scene.
