I not only had a great showing the fraternity comedy TEMPTED to the Intra-Greek Council at Wesleyan University but the film also received positive feedback about its themes and situations. It was the kind of discussion that could improve the well being of college students (especially freshmen) and the reputation of all fraternities and sororities. Thank you Renee Johnson-Thornton and the council for having me up!
It’s now official: The award nominated short comedy TEMPTED will be playing on Tuesday, November 17 at Wesleyan University! The screening will be held in the Allbritton Center for Public Research and is co-sponsored by the Intra-Greek Council and the Office of Equity and Inclusion at Wesleyan University.
Writer/director Andre´ Joseph will be in attendance to give a Q&A about the movie’s exploration of college fraternity life and will also be taking part in a conversation with the school administration about its themes.
We once again congratulate all the cast and crew for their hard work and helping to take TEMPTED to places we never thought possible!
We have a very special video from AJ Epyx Productions founder Andre´ Joseph about the recent DVD release and the November screening at Wesleyan University for TEMPTED, the upcoming Urban Action Showcase screening of DISHONORABLE VENDETTA, and the current production status of VENDETTA GAMES. See the video below:
Thanks to those of you who attended the Tempted screening at the Hoboken International Film Festival! Many thanks to the wonderful staff and festival runners for giving us the opportunity to screen our film to a fresh new crowd. A few pics from the event can be seen below:
And we can now announce our next big piece of news: In September, TEMPTED will be presented at Wesleyan University for a special screening to the incoming freshman class! Writer/director Andre´ Joseph will be a guest speaker to the class to discuss the film, its themes, and how it resonates with the recent media coverage on college fraternities. More info about this special event to come in the next several weeks.
