      Life of Aleister Crowley Comes to the Big Screen
      Wednesday March 17, 3:02 pm ET
      Sorcerer's Adventures Chronicled in "Aleister Crowley: Revolt of the
      Magicians"

      SANTA MONICA, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Mar 17, 2004 -- Michael Schrager of
      The
      Dominion Entertainment Group and Patricia Baker of The Big Picture
      Agency LLC have teamed to bring "Aleister Crowley: Revolt of the
      Magicians," the spellbinding screenplay based on the life of Aleister
      Crowley, to the big screen. The screenplay of the occult world's most
      controversial figure is written by internationally renown occult
      author
      and Crowley expert, Lon DuQuette, and Jim Bratkowsky of Cinemagic.

      "Lon and Jim have done a terrific job of capturing the essence and
      adventures of Aleister," says Schrager. "Crowley led a hedonistic
      lifestyle in Victorian London while passionately seeking spiritual
      truth
      in the occult. He was ultimately catapulted to the top of the occult
      world. "

      Crowley's character was enhanced by the company he kept -- Bram
      Stoker,
      William Butler Yeats and actress Florence Farr, to name a few.
      Aleister
      is also listed as one of the "Top 100 Brits," sandwiched between
      Robert
      Bruce and Henry V, however, newspapers of the time called him 'the
      wickedest man in the world.'

      "Interest in the paranormal remains high," states Baker. "This story
      offers rich, transformational roles for actors, and will captivate
      movie-goers around the world."

      Aleister was born into a family of Plymouth Brethren, a strict
      Christian
      sect in Leamington Spa, England. During his 72 earthly years, (1875 -
      1947), he indelibly imprinted himself on the Western Magickal
      Tradition
      and to many, he was the Western Magickal Tradition. "Choosing which
      part
      of his life story to tell was the most challenging part of this
      project.
      The more you read about Aleister the more you want to know," says
      Schrager.

      "Aleister's legacy attracts many new converts to the Occult even
      today,"
      explains Baker, "and he is said to still command considerable loyalty
      even from beyond the grave." Some believe Aleister was a spiritual
      seeker, others argue he was the dark magician. Production is planned
      for
      late 2004 in England and the United States.
