‘STAND BY”: Hristo Shopov’s first film as a director and producer

"STAND BY": A FILM DIRECTED BY HRISTO SHOPOV

Image

 

For the first time, actor Hristo Shopov swaps role in the shooting of a film, by getting behind the camera and directing the film entitled ‘STAND BY’.

Hristo is also producer and scriptwriter of this film that takes the form of a documentary intensely dedicated to a sport which is thrilling but not well-known in Bulgaria, called IPSC, or ‘Dinamichna Strelva” in Bulgarian.

With this documentary-film, the viewer learns of all types of issues that are involved in this type of shooting sport, such as what the sport consists of, training, who can practice it, rules, the culture of respect and responsibility towards firearms, its practice in Bulgaria, etc.

IPSC earned official recognition as a sport in our country in 2005 and has been one of the biggest growing types of sport here in recent years. Proof of that are the champions (of both sexes) that we have in official competitions at national and international level.

SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR: TWO UNKNOWN... MEETINGS AT A ROMANTIC AND HIDDEN HOTEL…

SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR: NATIONAL TOUR CONTINUES...
14.05 - PLEVEN    |     18.05 - SILISTRA    |     20.05 - SOFIA
28.05 - VELINGRAD    |     05.06 - PLOVDIV    |     20.06 - SVISHTOV    |     29.06 - SOFIA

Hristo Shopov, for second consecutive year, continues his national tour with the piece titled “SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR” . This theatrical production written in 1975 by Bernard Slader, won in its time an uncountable number of awards and has been performed more than 1400 on Broadway.

This will also sound familiar to the Bulgarian audience as there have been several memorable performances of this piece in the country.

Now, Hristo Shopov and Lilia Maravilia are faced with the challenge of bringing to life the characters George and Doris. The two clearly talented actors with a more than respectable career behind them are performing this piece for the first time in other cities besides Sofia. Their masterful interpretation of the story, which is seemingly trivial, will without a doubt excite the audience when they discover the passionate adventure which runs through the profound labyrinth of the human soul.

"SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR" tells the beautiful story of a man (Hristo Shopov) and woman (Lilia Maravilia) who meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened.

They agree to meet once a year to rekindle the sparks they experience at their first meeting, despite the fact that both are happily married.

THE MAN FROM EARTH: "CAN A HUMAN LIVE FOR 14000 YEARS?"

THE MAN FROM EARTH RETURNS WITH HRISTO SHOPOV
Next performance:
- 19 June 2018 - SOFIA

Hristo Shopov plays Professor John Oldman, the protagonist of Jerome Bixby’s “THE MAN FROM EARTH

Image

THE MAN FROM EARTH” is the last work Bixby wrote before he died in 1998. Up to his death he had written several other science fiction stories such as various episodes of the TV series “Star Trek” and the plots of films like “The Twilight Zone”. In his latest work one can sense all the love he had of classic science fiction which he helped build.

In “THE MAN FROM EARTH”’s thrilling screenplay, Bixby starts with an implausible idea which keeps growing until the unbelievable story becomes an undeniable truth. One of these stories which entrances us from beginning to end, leaving us breathless and desperate to know more with every minute that passes.

The plot revolves around John Oldman, a professor of an American university, who hosts his farewell party at his house with his fellow professors of the university who are surprised by his sudden decision to abandon a stable job and what appeared to be a comfortable lifestyle.

During the party, Oldman reveals to his colleagues that he is a man who has lived since the start of the human species, immortal without knowing why for 14,000 years.

HRISTO SHOPOV HELPS TO THE DOGS’ SHELTER IN MEZDRA

“Friends, yesterday something extraordinary and incredible happened to us: We met an actor and a wonderful person. Hristo Shopov, in the rain, visited our shelter in Mezdra yesterday“. This is what some days ago wrote “Animal Help Mezdra” in Facebook announcing that this great actor has decided to help with their noble cause.

“I learned about the existence of the shelter from my producer Lilia Grancharova. She told me that there was some tension between the mayor of the town, Genadi Sabkov, and a man, Stanislav Marinski, who together with his girlfriend are caring after one hundred and twenty homeless dogs. And they do this without any interests, without having any king of benefit in return”, says Hristo Shopov.

He himself for years has been concerned about pets and together with his family has always taken care of a dog or dogs. For this reason, he decided to intervene in order to mediate between both parties. “In that rainy day, I had an encounter with the mayor, during which I noted signs of love for dogs”, says the actor.

And so, he took a decision to castrate these dogs, provide them with adequate shelter and with a veterinarian next week- Dr. Antov will visit Mezdra to do the job.

“I won’t be able to be present because of my performances, but I will go later to see how the matter is going. There is already a bank account in the Facebook page of the shelter and all interested people can help them”, says Shopov.

Hristo Shopov was impressed by the dedication of Stanislav when he understood that every day after his work he goes to the shelter and is warmly received by the hugs of a hundred and twenty dogs. “It is worth doing a movie about him, so that people can see what he does with all his heart. I even start considering this idea”, explains Shopov.

Hristo Shopov currently is working on the shooting of the movie “Southern Wind” („Южен вятър”), in addition to starring in theatre plays as “All or Nothing” („Всичко или нищо”), ”Same Time, Next Year” („Догодина по същото време”) and “The Man from Earth” („Човек от земята“).
