For this holiday season, we have re-launched our crowdfunding campaign at Fractured Atlas as we are still in the process of editing the short film. In preparation for an official release next year, we will need your support to help cover the costs of building the marketing materials (i.e. Movie posters, electronic press kit and pitch deck, an official website, etc.) and for covering film festival entry fees. We understand that the holidays are a difficult time to be fundraising. However, no matter how big or small your contribution is, it will help us get our message out there. We have a very special film that all of us in the cast and crew are proud to be part of and we want to give it the biggest push possible. https://fundraising.fracturedatlas.org/dis…/campaigns/4651
We have only 1 more full day to raise funds for the short film production of DISMISSAL TIME. With 14 donations in, we are just halfway through to our minimum goal of $3,500. If you believe in this story and the message we are sending, then please contribute any amount you can at our fiscal sponsor site Fractured Atlas or at the very least share this campaign link. View the pitch video and all rewards for your contribution there. Thank you. https://fundraising.fracturedatlas.org/dismissal-time-short-film/campaigns/4266

We just launched a brand new crowdfunding campaign to raise production funds for our important short film project, DISMISSAL TIME. With 23 days and counting, we need as much support as possible to cover the cost of such items for the production including the following:
School uniform wardrobe
COVID Safety Supplies and Testing Gear
Meals and Catering for the cast and crew
Production on DISMISSAL TIME begins Oct. 4th in locations around South Jersey and Philadelphia. Should we raise more than the minimum goal listed, additional funds will only enhance the quality of the production. Please visit the link to learn more information and see what rewards are available for your help. All donation amounts listed are fully tax deductible as the campaign is active through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas.

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.

For those who don’t know, this is the very last week of our Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming western project AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. So far, we have only raised 14% of our fundraising goal since we began last month. We’ve actually done a little better than our previous campaign on Seed & Spark which was greatly affected by the initial lockdowns caused by the global pandemic. But this is still an all or nothing situation where if we don’t meet the minimum goal, then we get no funds to start production next year. We would have to consider other options.
We understand that the $12K goal is a long shot to reach between now and our November 21st deadline. So even if you can’t afford to contribute, you can still help us a long way by sharing the Kickstarter link. All it takes is the right eyes to view our work and be willing to support what we need to get up and running. These rewards are also worthwhile to get should you decide to contribute.

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
