Big dreams and a small budget, that’s all they had. Lead actor/producer, Tom Broadwell and writer/producer/director, Dominique Adams met while working as fitness instructors on a cruise ship in 2008. The two were paired to lead the fitness department onboard the Spa and to share a tiny room as cabin mates.
The two quickly became best friends and a great team. Working, living and training together. A few beers here and there, many discussions about life, work, dreams, relationships and everything in between. Their contracts ended and “Tom and Dom” stayed in touch. Dominique decided to visit Tom in England before returning back home.
The discussion of “what do we do next” often came as a topic. Dominique often talked about his dream of making a film.
A life long passion. He wrote 3 screenplays at age 13 on a typewriter. He decides to share with Tom his latest storyline idea. Tom on his side shares his secret dream of acting in movies.“Wait a minute” Says Dominique. “Tom IS the character. He is David Grant.
He has a great delivery, calm and collected, British accent… PERFECT. And Tom can sell. If he can sell me on the character, he can play the role”.
Dominique wrote a few lines and Tom delivered. David Grant came to life. They decided to go for it. Dominique returns home, writes the script over two days and two nights.
The creation process began. Nobody will trust and invest their money with an unknown non-actor and a “nobody” writer/director. So they decide to do it on their own with a micro-budget, bringing all of their passion and commitment to making the best film they could within the means and the budget. Their goal was to deliver an intelligent and compelling story, credible acting and big budget image quality, Hollywood style (the movie was shot using 4K RED cameras).
Post-production was completed on the Spring 2010. After a full page article in the largest French newspaper in North America (Journal de Montreal), Dom received an email from the program directors at the Fantasia Int’l Film Festival, inviting them to submit their film.“Twisted Seduction” Premiered on July 14th, 2010 at Fantasia Festival. The reactions of the crowd were priceless and “Twisted Seduction” received great reviews from critics on the web and IMDB.
In 2013, SnagFilms acquired the International distribution rights for the 2010 version of Twisted Seduction. Their titles have been featured on more than 3.5 billion pageviews across its network. SnagFilms also owns IndieWIRE (http://www.indiewire.com), an online publication covering the independent film industry.
