AJ Epyx Productions' VENDETTA GAMES is a feature length crime thriller that begs this question: Can two cops whose personal lives are jeopardized in the pursuit of justice risk everything and walk away with their world intact?
The story follows the complicated careers and personal lives of DEA agents Keith Miller and Jason Stokes. The agents get assigned to protect a casino tycoon’s troubled son following his girlfriend’s murder at the hands of vicious Colombian drug dealers. When the assignment goes tragically wrong, however, their boss Agent James Marks takes the blame and gets suspended. Now to get justice and save their boss’ job, Miller and Stokes go undercover as security for the tycoon’s casino where they uncover ties between the deadly drug dealers and an illegal narcotics operation led by the militaristic head of casino security.
We had shot the opening scene this past summer and resumed shooting in September. Most of the scenes we have shot thus far were conversation scenes between the main characters and they were self-funded. But now, we are approaching very complex scenes that involve some action sequences, expensive locations, and a large number of actors present each shoot day.
And that's where you come in!
In order for production to proceed as planned, we will need at least $2,500 to cover the bare essentials needed to bring this movie to life. While only a small portion of the film’s proposed budget, this will help us to compensate the crew, cover location fees, and to acquire important props and costumes.

Risks and challenges
Our goals for Vendetta Games are highly ambitious for a feature length independent film. Having shot the first few scenes out of our pockets, production can often be slowed down due to budgetary constraints. Should we be unable to make our goal, the production will take far longer to proceed. We will very likely resort to extensive rewrites to compromise our vision and fund the production out of our own pockets which will be excruciating for us personally.
That being said, Vendetta Games is not our first rodeo in making movies. The 10+ years accumulated from producing other productions in a feature length format gave us the knowledge of how to get a film from script stage to a release for the general public. Our goals cannot be accomplished without taking risks. We are more than prepared to face those challenges head on and we will seek every creative solution to create the best finished product possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
