Along the Way, before the End.
Bricks of Gold

It’s been almost a year since we started down the road that led to where we are now. Monday was the screening and premiere of the Compendium V films, including Yellow Brick Road. From the Day that we selected the Zombies of Oz, our team bonded in a way that I wouldn’t trade for the world. We became very close, and I can’t [...]

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
The Theatre

Monday, we had the premiere of Yellow Brick Road and were reunited finally with the cast and crew of our project. We were all very nervous. Since they were last involved, the film has changed so much. It now has a cohesive look and feel. Once everybody had piled into the seats of the theatre and the lights dimmed, it [...]

Where are the all the People?

Up until now, our road has been looking pretty lonely. So, we had to hold our casting session to get somebody down there! It’s been a long process, and we’ve been seeing many great actors. We had people come in and pretend to bleed all over the ground, guys that yelled so loud that we flinched in fear, and girls [...]

Follow the Yellow Brick Road
