PRESS RELEASE 

TRIPLE E PRODUCTIONS’ FILM GRAND PRIZE WINNER IN WEINSTEIN COMPANY’S “DIARY OF THE DEAD” FILM CONTEST

Syosset, NY, March 24, 2008:    Triple E Productions won the grand prize in The Weinstein Co.’s Diary of the Dead DVD contest. Their film entitled, The Final Day, will now be featured on the DVD release of legendary filmmaker George A. Romero’s new film, Diary of the Dead.

The contest was put together by The Weinstein Company and Mr. Romero, who is responsible for the American classic, Night of the Living Dead. The top twenty films were selected through user votes on the social networking site, MySpace, and through a special selective process by members of The Weinstein Company. The top twenty films were then screened for Mr. Romero, who hand-picked five films – four winners and one grand prize winner. The five films will be featured on the Diary of the Dead DVD and the Grand Prize Winner, The Final Day, will have its own featured section on the DVD.

“We’re elated that The Weinstein Company and Mr. Romero picked our film to be the Grand Prize Winner from among the three hundred and ten other films. That type of validation is simply just a remarkable experience,” states company owner and Director of The Final Day, Paul Del Vecchio. “We just hope this experience opens up a few doors and allows us to keep making films because we have a lot of ideas that we feel would be both entertaining for the fans and profitable for the studios.”

For more information on the film, contact Paul Del Vecchio or visit http://www.triple-e-productions.net. The Final Day can be viewed online for free at the following web address:

That’s right! We have another exciting “Making Of/Behind the Scenes” for you. This time, it’s for our “DIARY OF THE DEAD” CONTEST ENTRY! Not only do we cover the effects, but we discuss how the film was made and some of the ideas behind the movie.

This one is a bit longer than the NETFLIX SPEC BEHIND THE SCENES so grab a snack. It’s about 10 minutes long.

As always, we encourage you to comment and let us know what you think!

And now, without further delay, here it is!

Additional information:

  • We shot one full day and then an hour and a half or so on the following day for all the park scenes/outdoor scenes.
  • We had no crew – It was simply Paul Del Vecchio, David R. Doumeng, Douglas Frye, and Dawn E. Jones on the crew. Michael Zone played the “Arm Zombie.”
  • The movie took 4 days total from script to finish.

Winners will be announced this Friday, March 21st, 2008. Wish us luck!

As always, SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG because we’re going to have a lot more of these as well as a bunch of short films and news about our upcoming projects! You don’t want to miss a thing!

Not only does THE BLOG have a brand new look, but now our homepage, www.Triple-E-Productions.net, has a brand new look! Stop by and say hello, WATCH SOME VIDEOS and enjoy your stay.

Some things that might be of interest:

THE GRUNGE – This hysterical horror film parody is definitely not something you want to miss! Check out the AUDIENCE REACTION to a quick preview of the film. This is Paul Del Vecchio’s first feature film, still incomplete as of yet, but he plans on hopefully finishing it one day.

FOREVER – ForeveR is Paul Del Vecchio’s completed feature length horror film that is in DVD purgatory as of right now. However, we plan on self distributing the DVD of this ACCLAIMED FILM in coming summer (2008).

GOT MILK? – This hysterical spec might be living in the shadow of the NETFLIX spec. Even though it is not as extravagant as the Netflix Spec, it is definitely very entertaining and you won’t regret checking it out!

Oh and don’t worry… we didn’t forget about the “Behind the Scenes/Making Of…” for “THE LAST DAY,” that will be coming very soon!

That’s all for now, folks! As always, if you haven’t already, be sure to…
