New AJ Epyx Productions Sizzle Reel for 2022

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.

In addition to narrative and documentary film work, we have provided our services to Vintage New York City Magazine, Mina D. Jewelry, Rockefeller Group Business Centers, and various other businesses.
