Though the website has been quiet lately, things have been gearing up over here at Bamfer Productions with lots of new stuff going on.
First off, we are very close to selling out of The Ties That Bind DVDs. Remember, this is a very limited run, folks, and once they are gone…they’re gone! We’ve got a few left in stock, as does Horror-Mall, but they are selling like hot cakes. And, I just wanted to say thank you guys again. Since the DVD went up for preorder, it’s been the #1 selling DVD on Horror-Mall the past two months. You guys are awesome. Thanks for that.
If you haven’t ordered yours yet, head on over to The Ties That Bind Storefront to get yours today before they are all gone!
Speaking of buying stuff, we’ll be selling some cool BamProd gear in a few weeks! The initial test run of shirts and sweatshirts went well, so it’s about time I open up the store to the public. Be on the look out for shirts, pull over hoodies, zip up hoodies, and even hats in the next few weeks. We hope to have them before the month is out, so stay tuned! Along with clothing, I’m going to put The Ties That Bind poster up on the storefront as well, since there seems to be a huge demand for them!
Speaking of the end of the month, if you’re in the Hunt Valley, Maryland area from September 25th-27th, come on out to HorrorFind Weekend! I’ll be there the entire weekend, along with the rest of the guys from Drunken Tentacle Productions. I’ll have some DVDs and posters on hand (and hopefully some shirts, too!), so come find us and say hi, share a beer, or punch Mike Lombardo (of Reel Splatter fame) in the gut! Hell, first person to do that, I’m buying ’em a beer! For more info on HorrorFind, check out their website www.horrorfindweekend.com
Also, after that weekend, expect a very BIG announcement. Huge, major news is coming your way. I’m excited. You should be too.
That’s all for now, and hope to see some of you folks soon!
For Immediate Release
We are proud to officially announce the formation of Drunken Tentacle Productions, a new independent film company based in Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and headed by Mike Antonio, Matt Blazi, Jeff Heimbuch, Brian Keene, and Mike Lombardo.
Mike Antonio is a graduate of The Sheffield Institute For The Recording Arts. His production and co-writing credits include the short films They’ll Never Get Me, Ninja Slice, and Elkton’s Undead.
Matt Blazi has been involved in several films, including Land of the Dead, Deadlands, and George Romero’s most recent zombie movie (currently in production).
Jeff Heimbuch is the founder of Bamfer Productions. He has received numerous awards from film festivals all over the country, most recently including “Best Horror Film” and “Audience Choice Award” at the Garden State Film Festival for the feature film Leeds Point. He is also the writer and director of Brian Keene’s The Ties That Bind (forthcoming).
Brian Keene is a two-time Bram Stoker Award winning horror novelist. He also writes for Marvel Comics. The author of over twenty books, Keene’s work has been praised by CNN, The New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, The Howard Stern Show, Fangoria, and Rue Morgue Magazine.
Mike Lombardo is the founder of Reel Splatter Productions and specializes in splatter comedy. Of his fifteen short films, he is perhaps best known for Demonstration of the Dead. He also occasionally serves as a voice actor for cartoons.
Drunken Tentacle Productions’ main focus will be feature-length horror films for DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital download formats. Their first project will be an anthology film based on selections from Brian Keene’s short-story collections Fear of Gravity and Unhappy Endings. The film is expected to be released in 2010.
