About FIG cinematics Ltd.

Hello, welcome to the FIG CINEMATICS website.

My name is Ron Sayadian. I’m the Managing Director of FIG CINEMATICS, a UK-based motion picture production company.

My ongoing mission - if you’ll permit me to rearrange Captain Kirk’s great words - is to boldly go where no filmmaker has gone before; to make powerful, cinematic movies that thrill, inspire, educate, move, but above all, entertain.

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am an unashamed cinema fan. I love all genres, but have a special place in my heart for redemption movies.

I started writing THE MELISSA TREE, my company’s first major project, because I got sick and tired of wasting my time and money on third rate thrillers that left me feeling conned and dissatisfied.

So I made it my goal to write and produce a film that I’d be happy to go and see: one that would wake up the world, introduce characters and situations that speak to people’s hearts, minds and consciences, and make moviegoers stay in their seats long after the credits had finished.

This, then, has been my dream, ever since July 2006 when I gave up my safe job in marketing to bring my dark story of terrorism and redemption to the big screen.

You’ll get a strong sense of my passion for this project by viewing the short teaser film on this website, which was shot with love and no small amount of skill by award-winning young German film director, Gregor Erler.

In the Melissa Tree I believe we have an important and powerful story of our time, one that competes with the very best modern cinema has to offer. I hope you feel the same way.
