After such a chaotic year with all productions at a standstill, we are now going to announce some new projects that we at AJ Epyx Productions are taking on in the coming new year:
CALCULATED EGOS follows a struggling Brooklyn warehouse worker named Melvin Mac, Jr. who is offered an important job opportunity by reputed Italian mob boss, Don Cesare Pachino. The wealth that the job provides for Mac’s wife and son also makes him a target for enemies working in the shadows. This results in a series of tragic events that will change both the Mac and Pachino family lives forever. The web series will be a 10-episode arc spanning three generations from the mid-1970s to the present day. We are proud to bring to life this gripping new project from award-winning film director, Andrè Joseph of AJ Epyx Productions, writer/producers Christopher Stewart and Minoj of Source Life Entertainment, and associate producer Sonia Ruiz. If you have any questions or comments, please check out our official website. Follow on Instagram @calculatedegos

AJ Epyx Productions announces the start of work on their newest feature film in nearly 5 years: VENDETTA GAMES. Written and directed by Andre´ Joseph, the film serves as a continuation of the story that began with DISHONORABLE VENDETTA as DEA Agents Keith Miller and Jason Stokes get involved with a major organized drug ring that puts their lives, careers, and their loved ones in serious jeopardy.
Production on the opening sequence began this past week in Staten Island, NY. Returning to the cast include Mr. Joseph as Stokes, Chris Corulla as Miller, J.R. Carter as Marks, and Drew Henriksen as Talbot. New additions to the cast include Matthew McCurdy, Emily De Villa, Christina Roman, Bryan Williams, Paul Wallace, Reginald L. Barnes, Eric Torres, Fernando Ramos, and many more soon to be announced.
In just a few weeks, we will be launching our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the rest of the production in late summer-early fall 2015. A pitch video will be rolled out first, followed by a completely edited version of the film’s opening sequence. Stay tuned right here for more updates over the course of the next few months.
