2006 News Updates
September 26th – Doomed To Consume Test Screening, Status and more Festivals!
Due to time constraints, the movie was still minus the score… But our (currently) 76 minute zombie film received nothing but positive feedback and comments from the people who stuck around for the Q& A afterwards!
Over the course of October, we hope to get the score mixed in and have a local premiere in the Twin Cities this coming winter plus have screener copies of the movie ready for all the distributors who've been patiently waiting to see the movie for themselves!
