ANDIE - Andrea Vasiliou Action Hero

November 29, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

If you are a regular follower you will know I’m a big fan of cinematic and fantasy photography, my head is usually full of ideas which I’d like to shoot and quite often those ideas spill out into much bigger projects. One such project is ANDIE, an action-adventure story which I have wanted to tell for some time.

This is ANDIE - the story so far.

I first worked with Andrea Vasiliou back in 2016 when we worked together shooting lifestyle and fashion - see image below. Andrea had just finished filming Wonder Woman and was still buzzing with excitement. Within minutes of shooting, I instantly thought Andrea would be perfect for the assassin role I had created and shared my ideas with her. Fortunately for me, Andrea was super excited after hearing my ideas and then a few days later after reading my synopsis, she was all too keen to get involved and play the lead role in ANDIE!

The concept - what is it all about?

My original concept was to combine film and motion with high-end retouched cinematic photography to create a stylish, action-packed Motion Graphic Novel as never seen before! It's great to let your imagination run wild and I often have plenty of ideas running through my head. I soon found out his was no easy project to produce by myself and requires help and cooperation from others.

Let's do this!

If you are a producer or production company and looking for a unique fresh concept to develop, I would love to pitch my original ideas to you. Below is just a few storyboard images we created to develop the ideas which give a taste of the concept but admittedly doesn't give too much away. To really do this project justice we need the backing of like-minded creative people who like what they see so far and are intrigued to know more.

About Andie

ANDIE is played by actress and model Andrea Vasiliou who is known for her work in Wonder Woman, Krypton, The Dark Knight Rises, Knights of the Damned and Justice League.

From the moment we are introduced to Andie our story hooks the audience and it soon becomes obvious things aren't always as they seem. 

Don't be fooled by the pretty face and affectionate smile, Andie is the most beautiful girl you never want to meet. A trained killer, a hired assassin, and she makes a wicked lemon drizzle cake!
