Born Wild is headed by producer Anthony Alleyne, whose debut movie Sunburn, was released earlier this year on VOD in North America and Canada, and who is repped by The Gersh Agency.
“Anthony is a hungry, creative and ambitious producer, with a string of outstanding projects in development, perfectly positioned for the changing international market,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights.
Eccho Rights and Born Wild are working on a number of titles that already have international co-production partners in place.
Examples include The Crystal Isle – a drug smuggling dark black comedy, based on a true story, and backed by national broadcaster RTP in Portugal – One Euro Village, a mockumentary focused on an Italian village selling dilapidated homes for €1 to stay alive, and Ezequiel Himes – a post-Apocalyptic Spaghetti Western, featuring telepathic undead, based on a Graphic Novel by acclaimed Spanish Graphic Artists, Victor Santos, and Alberto Hernandez.
Also in development is Red Swamp, a thriller set in the Finnish Swamps, where a group of French explorers investigating a new world unveiled by melting arctic glaciers, discover that they have become prey. This project has been selected as part of the Film France/Nordic Film Commissions’ showcase event happening as part of Focus 2020 in December.
“I am amazed by Nicola and the whole Eccho Rights team’s energy and vision in taking our projects global. We have already made incredible progress,” says Alleyne.
