Happy New Year folks!
Well, things have been busy here. We're only 16 days into the new year and we're already running mad with two projects, but more on that in a bit. First, we wanted to apologize for those who were looking forward to receiving our newsletter on a more regular basis.
Back in September we said we would start sending our newsletter more frequently, but alas, we haven't been able to reasonably keep that goal. Reason, mainly two... one, we're swamped with the forementioned projects, and two, we haven't found someone to be solely in charge of the newsletter. So, for the time being, newsletters have been suspended indefinitely.
Now back to those projects. We are working on two films. One you might recall, in earlier news, is The Forbidden. But, we have recently started work on another film by director Matt Spease, called Silent Vengeance.
The Forbidden, we're sure many were wanting to hear more about, has finally been rough edited and will be in post with us. To update, we're doing some visual effects on the film, as well as some sound re-recording and remixing. The film is getting an HD render while we start on the rough visual effects. Once the HD render is done, we'll get the full film for post production and do our magic. "Like" our Facebook page to keep updated on the progress.
Silent Vengeance, as mentioned before, is from Matt Spease and his production company, Dark Night Films. Who, incidently, worked on The Forbidden as a cameraman. After seeing our preliminary work for that film, he asked us to be involved in his sequal film to The Chameleon Killer. He had a viewing of The Chameleon Killer for us and we thought being a part of a sequel sounded promising.
So here we are, beginning the new year by diving deep into two films. We look forward to continued success for this year and can't wait to see where it leads us.... "capturing the soul of film and video production" one after another.
To learn more about the films, visit their links on Facebook. And don't forget to "like" them to keep updated.

Well, it's been awhile since we sent out our newsletter... did you miss us? Anyway, for those of you who aren't following us on Facebook or Twitter, we have been busy making a film entitled, "The Forbidden.' We have been hired to do the post production of the film primarily, however, we were part of the filming process... especially with green screen work.
To keep updated on our progress and to learn more about the film, visit the news section of our website. Be sure to visit the videos section too, where you can see exclusive behind the scenes videos of 'The Forbidden.'
We have also begun to do an overhaul of our site. We cleaned up the home page, added submenus to the navigation links (at the top left of the page) and redone the News / Videos / FAQ / Links pages. Stop by and take a look around and let us know what you think or if you find a problem. Additionally, we added a sidebar to the left of the page (under the navigation links) that has a live feed from our Facebook page.
That about covers everything for now. We are planning on making the newsletter monthly or bimonthly... so expect to hear from us more often.
As always, we want to thank everyone for your support. We're glad to have you as a fan on our social networking sites. Don't forget to find us at these sites:

For those that follow us on Facebook, you've probably heard we're in the middle of making The Forbidden with Faded Pictures Films. If not, here is a short run down what the movie is:
"The Forbidden" is a short film produced for Dark Night Films upcoming horror anthology, "Evil Deeds 3."
The plot: Two lovers, one a staunch lesbian and the other unsure about her true identity, head off on a weekend camping trip of exploration and self-awareness, but instead find themselves in the midst of an ancient demon who posses those it kills and travels in a shroud of endless fog. They try their best to escape the demon as they work out their personal conflicts and forbidden love for one another . . . and, of course, stay alive.
This film was shot to try to mimic the style of so many long forgotten '70s horror/exploitation films that ran rampant out of Europe. However, we could not help but to find ourselves incorporating styles and cliche`s from the '80s as well. To honor one of the true kings of horror, Hitchcock, we used his blood recipe for the effects.
