2006 News Updates

September 26th – Doomed To Consume Test Screening, Status and more Festivals!

Our upcoming zombie film "Doomed To Consume" had a test screening at the "Crypticon Horror Convention" earlier this month! It was well received by the 50 or 60 patrons that came to check it out!

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!

More details on the status of "Doomed To Consume" as we get things wrapped up!

The great news just keeps coming in for our twisted little short film called "The Locksmith" which will be playing at 2 different horror festivals this October!!!

Be sure to catch it at the "Chicago Horror Film Festival" on Saturday October 8th at 8:30pm and also at "Gore Fest 2006" in Detroit, MI on Saturday October 28th!

Anyone who lives in either of these cities is encouraged to go show your support!

April 6th – Zombies, Composers and The Locksmith news!

February 2nd - Myspace madness, Toxic Shock Interview & Feature film updates!

I'd just like to say Thanks to all of our new friends over at myspace who've come to check out the NFTS Productions website!
Traffic was so heavy last month that we exceeded our bandwidth at least 3 times and ultimately had to change servers to accommodate everyone!

If you haven't had a chance to read it yet… Check out the really cool interview I did with Toxic Shock TV last month! See it here

I know it's been slow process but Brain Damage Films has been getting things rolling with our 1st feature Off The Beaten Path
We actually spent most of last weekend getting dialogue sheets and credit blocks ready for them! Let me tell you about fun… We took turns sitting in front of a TV pressing, pause, play or rewind while trying to decipher every word of dialogue and typing it into a word document! Ahhhhhhhh!

Not a whole lot to say about our zombie feature Doomed To Consume other than we are nearing the tail end of the movie and should be editing that very soon. Next step will be adding sound effects and gun flashes before doing credits and extensive color correction.
Time permitting we may be adding some video clips and/or another trailer with more storyline added to the site as well!
