The Vampire and Tell Me a Story star Paul Wesley has teamed with award-winning helmer Dekel Berenson to create features and shorts under their new banner, Three Color Films. The pair are already working on their first short, “Abel,” shot in Yosemite, which turns on a father and son bonding over a shared sense of loss.
They plan to build a slate spanning shorts and features. One early project, set to be pitched to digital platforms, is an international short-form multi-part feature that would have Berenson’s shorts “Anna” and “Ashmina” as the first installments. “Anna” played in the Shorts Film Competition at Cannes this year and is shortlisted for a BAFTA. Berenson and the film’s producer, Merlin Merton, picked up the award for best short at the British Independent Film Awards earlier this month. “Ashmina” premiered at the London Film Festival.
