As part of our 15th year in business, we are now re-releasing some of our past short films on Vimeo for free to our fans and followers. This is our thanks to your loyal support on these productions. Among the films we are now making public are 2005’s THE EVIL SOCIETY, 2013’s NIGHT STREAM, and 2014’s TEMPTED. Watch them all today on the AJ Epyx Vimeo Channel.
AJ EPYX PRODUCTIONS, LLC is a New York-based independent film production and professional videography company created and operated by André Joseph. We strive in bringing quality to the best stories destined for the big screen.
Our first feature film, “Priceless”, premiered at Tribeca Cinemas in October 2008 and was selected for exhibition at the NY International Independent Film & Video Festival in March 2009. Our second feature film, Dishonorable Vendetta, was screened at the Urban Action Showcase in 2015 where it won the award for “Best Firefight.” Its sequel, Vendetta Games, won the “Best Urban Action” award at the 2017 Urban Action Showcase as well as a “Best Director, Crime Feature” award at the Atlantic City Cinefest. Both Vendetta films are now available on Amazon Prime Video and Tubi. In 2018, their dramatic short film, The Saxophonist, won “Best Film” at the New York Jazz Film Festival and was also screened at the Newark International Film Festival as well as the Kwanzaa Film Festival.
Coming soon from AJ Epyx are the dramatic anti-bullying short film, Dismissal Time, and the currently in development western, American Gunslingers.

2021 was a pivotal year for myself and AJ Epyx Productions, LLC by getting back to what I love to do and tell compelling stories worth the investment. I pray in the new year that some unfinished business gets done and to have that breakthrough moment both personally and professionally. Success is what you make of it.
We’re gonna start winning the people over on the streets… soon.
We recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe to raise production funds for the pilot episode of our upcoming crime drama web series, CALCULATED EGOS, a co-production of Source Life Entertainment. We are aiming to shoot around NYC this summer and need all the support possible to run a smooth and safe production for our cast and crew.

June 4th will be your last opportunity to purchase DVD and Blu-ray copies of THE SAXOPHONIST, DISHONORABLE VENDETTA, NIGHT STREAM, EVIL SOCIETY, and TEMPTED at Amazon. All films are available at discounted prices and have special features that you may not get on a streaming service. They are only worth having as collector’s items.
Yesterday, we received notice from Amazon that on June 4th, they will be shutting down the Media on Demand service for good. MOD was our source for submitting and selling physical copies of our past films since PRICELESS back in 2010. With the fast changing climate of the industry as there is greater public demand for digital streaming services, physical media is clearly phasing out.
What does this mean for us? It mean that this will be your last opportunity to purchase DVD and Blu-ray copies of THE SAXOPHONIST, DISHONORABLE VENDETTA, NIGHT STREAM, EVIL SOCIETY, and TEMPTED. All films are available at discounted prices and have special features that you may not get on a streaming service. They are only worth having as collector’s items. The change at Amazon, however, will not affect VENDETTA GAMES which can still be streamed on Prime.
We may look into another physical media distribution outlet in the near future should the demand be there for it. But if you still want to see these movies after June 4th, they are all available on our Vimeo on Demand page and THE SAXOPHONIST can be seen on The BeBop Channel app.
