Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report readers, from the good folks over at vision films comes an action concept that I have to admit is novel. A hot air balloon is not normally something that is scary as it is supposed to be controlled and relaxed! I had to share this entire release, so film fans can get a feel for the detail the creative team used to recreate the balloon sequence.

Doronin shares, “Audiences are used to seeing special effects, and they’re not easy to surprise or impress. That’s why we decided to shoot our movie with the maximum amount of real conditions: no studios and using a real hot air balloon. We set up an open-air stage as we wanted the balloon to be seen actually flying above both land and sea. The basket was full-size with real burners that produced real flames, which blasted several meters high. From the very outset, we aimed to be as realistic as possible.”
William Baldwin stars with Jeannine Kaspar (Iron Man, Freeheld), Marianna Rosset (Portrait of God), Zach Rose (Better Call Saul, Longmire), Diljohn Singh (Gold, London Confidential), Crystal Web (Ghosthunters, Strangulation) and introduces Kseniya Pinch.
When Kate (Jeannine Kaspar) and her 13-year old little sister Liz (Kseniya Pinch) are reunited on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, Kate meets Myrianthy (Marianna Rosset) and a group of locals whom she agrees to an exciting ride in a hot air balloon with. The joyride takes a dangerous turn when it becomes untethered, and the passengers ascend without a pilot. Their cell phones out of range, and the balloon running out of gas, Kate and Myrianthy begin a desperate fight for their lives as the balloon is pushed out over the open ocean. Back on land, Liz has become an unwanted "material witness" to a robbery committed by Jack (William Baldwin), who happens to be Myrianthy’s boyfriend. Matters take a dramatic twist, one that will mark their lives forever. While Liz may be their only hope of rescue, can she get to them in time?
“I am excited and proud to present our movie to film lovers all around the world,” writer and director Roman Doronin continues, “our multinational cast and crew have created an exciting new adventure movie which will whisk you off on a thrilling journey to the far reaches of fear.”
