Timur Bekmambetov will shoot film based on Denis Ten’s script

Next year the Denis Ten Academy of Figure Skating will be opened. The athlete dreamed of establishing the Global Skating Academy. Russian trainer Tatyana Tarasova will take part in the project. The life of the Kazakh athlete, who passed away early, was full of goals for his country. The ‘Denis Ten’ public fund will implement his unfulfilled dreams. It is known that he was well rounded and was interested in variety of creative works such as literature, photography and music.

OKSANA TEN, DENIS TEN'S MOTHER:

- We have established different areas of the Fund's activities. We try to accomplish all of them. We plan to issue Denis's instrumental music and record his songs. A collection titled ‘Stories, Fairytales and Poems’ will be available soon to the public. Denis had many creative works. He was hungry for self-improvement.

An animated movie based on the athlete’s life will be filmed. Most importantly, ‘The Blind Love,’ based on Denis Ten’s script will also be filmed. Filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov will take part in this project.

TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV, FILMMAKER:

- Soon the film will be available to the public. Starting from January we will start preparatory works. The film isn’t commercial. It is dedicated to the spirit of the athlete. It will also be available to the English speaking audience. Now we are looking for a filmmaker. The film will be shot in the United States. Based on Denis’s script the plot is about infinite love and relationship between youth.

The ice show titled ‘Denis and his Friends’ will be organized annually with the support of the foundation. Master classes for Kazakh figure skaters will also be organized.
