We are happy to announce our composers for the original score of Dismissal Time! First, we have our longtime composer Matt Hackett who previously recorded music and sound design for past AJ Epyx films including NIGHT STREAM, THE DINNER, and of course Vendetta Games. Second, we have the honor of bringing in world renowned pianist and Julliard grad Konstantin Soukhovetski who was also an actor on our 2nd film, Dishonorable Vendetta. You can listen to their tracks on Soundcloud at the following links:
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. As we prepare 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
With production now wrapped on DISMISSAL TIME, we begin the next important phase of the project with editing, sound mixing, and music. But we also have something very important we would like to do in fitting the movie’s themes. If you have been a victim or a witness to racially motivated bullying in school and/or witnessed a school administration’s lack of effort to take action, we would like for you to tell your story on camera and have it featured in the end credits. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact me directly at email@example.com to tell your story. If we feel your story is appropriate for the film, you can shoot your testimonial on your phone and send it to us before we complete the editing process by early next year. Thank you.
…and that’s a wrap on Dismissal Time: An AJ Epyx Short Film. I’ll have a lot more to say at a later time. But for now, I want to say it was an honor and a privilege to work with an incredibly talented cast and crew who put in 100% passion and more. Thank you.
Shoot days 1 and 2 of DISMISSAL TIME are now in the books. We have some quick behind the scenes video of our shoot courtesy of Lisa Regina! Thank you Giant Fitness as well as BioTech Media for allowing us the time to use your location! More to come very soon.
