Wind Dancer kicks off trio

Company begins production on funded films

Wind Dancer Films has launched production on a trio of pics from its development fund — thrillers “Crescendo” and “House of War” and family adventure comedy “Motel Galileo.”

Company and principal Matt Williams announced the fund in October with the aim of focusing on comedies and character-driven thrillers in the $15 million-$30 million range.

“Crescendo,” will be penned by Andrew Klavan based on a story by Williams. It centers on a world-class concert violinist who’s consumed by visions of her dead father and struggles to maintain her sanity as she’s forced to confront her past. Klavan wrote the novels “Don’t Say a Word” and “True Crime” as well as screenplays for the upcoming thrillers “One Missed Call,” “Man and Wife” and “The Imagined.”

“House of War,” a political thriller to be penned by Alex Paraskevas, follows a burnt-out med student who discovers a piece of classical music that leads him to a planned assassination that could trigger a U.S. war in Indonesia. Paraskevas wrote “Walker Payne.”

“Motel Galileo,” to be penned by Joe D’Ambrosio and Tom Teves, follows the adventures of a teenager who is sent to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle at their motel — a haven for extraterrestrials. D’Ambrosio and Teves recently wrote “Mother of Invention” for Disney and “Book of Marvels” for Ufland Prods.
