The Deaths of Ian Stone tells the story of an all-American guy who is murdered each day by horrifying pursuers, only to wake up in slightly different lives to experience the terror of being murdered again. On an otherwise ordinary night, the young Ian Stone encounters a mysterious creature and is forced into the path of an oncoming train. Rather than facing certain death, Ian finds himself reborn into a new life that feels strangely familiar. After his second death, it becomes apparent that Ian is being hunted by an evil presence, and will be forced to die every day until he can solve the mystery of his own life.
Tooth & Nail Un groupe de jeunes, les Foragers, vont devoir se battre contre des cannibales vicieux pour survivre dans un monde post-apocalyptique.
"A group of young people, called Foragers, fight to survive against a band of vicious cannibals, known as Rovers, in a post-apocalyptic world which has been depleted of fossil fuels." It is 2020, and the world has run out of gas. Civilized countries have spiraled into looting and anarchy, and much of the world population has starved to death or killed each other. A small group of misfits known as Foragers take refuge in an empty Philadelphia hospital with plans on re-building society. On a daily foray into the city, they discover a young girl who is the victim of a brutal attack. They bring her back to the hospital, but soon discover that they were followed by a savage band of cannibals known as Rovers. The Rovers begin to kill the Foragers one by one, and the trapped survivors must find a way to outwit their stalkers.. This film explores how without the restraints of civilization, people will regress to their savage beginnings.
I am very emotional, organized in my work but less in my life. I am passionate, a perfectionist, and love every detail in my music and my music production. I love reading books at nights, love drama and epic films. Especially, I love to spend time with my wife and my family.

BIO : Elia Cmiral's first break came when his father let him score "Cyrano de Bergerac" at his theater when he was just eighteen years old. But before he could build a career in Czechoslovakia, he escaped to Sweden and, to his surprise, was soon asked to score a full-length battle for the National Theater entitled "Nemesis". Deciding to study film scoring in the United States, he moved to Los Angeles in 1987 and enrolled at USC. Through some friends, he had the opportunity to score the cult film "Apartment Zero". In 1989, he was offered a grant from Sweden to produce his own record, and he moved back. Four years later, in the winter of 1993, Elia moved back to Los Angeles and resumed his scoring career. In 1996, Don Johnson hired him to score the first season episodes and theme for his new series, "Nash Bridges " ? on CBS. Elia also scored "Somebody Is Waiting ", with the same director from "Apartment Zero ," but it didn't get any US distribution. His big break came when Michael Sandovall, of MGM/United Artists, gave Elia the opportunity to audition for John Frankenheimer's "Ronin". The score was released on Varese Sarabande to rave reviews, and Elia signed to be represented by "The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency, " the largest film scoring agency in the world.
