YELLOW SCARE

bluray cover_final

YELLOW SCARE, our 4th feature length film, will be available to purchase on DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital on Amazon on March 25, 2020. You can pre-order the DVD here & the Blu-Ray here.

This will be our very first film available on Blu-Ray, and you won’t want to miss it. It comes with a hilarious blooper reel, the extended version of the Ballad of Sum Ting Wong, and the entire Rex Steel & the PC Officer webseries that we filmed as a prequel to the film as part of our crowdfunding campaign.

Yellow Scare was filmed in April and May of 2016, and has gone on quite a journey since then. We had a test screening in October of 2017 at Frank’s Theatre in Bayonne, NJ, followed by a successful festival run where we won BEST COMEDY, THE FOUNDERS’ AWARD, and BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Dan Gregory) at the 2018 Golden Door IFF. We won BEST “FOREIGN” SCI-FI FEATURE at the 2018 Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase. We won BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Mila Milosevic) at the 2018 Hoboken IFF. And we were nominated for a slew of other awards at festivals throughout the country. 

This was a journey that begin into my head in the summer of 2012 and evolved for several years before we decided, in 2015, to crowdfund and film it in 2016. This journey was the biggest production we have ever filmed, and took us to festivals all over the country.

I am immensely proud of this film. I am proud and thankful of every single person who was a part of it. I am very excited for you all to see it.

As with anything we do, VIEWS, SALES,  & REVIEWS are vital to its success. So, pre-order it now. Buy it when it comes out. Watch it & review it. And SHARE the links with all of your friends and families.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! For the last few years, we have tried to premiere things on Halloween. And this year, we have TWO never-before-seen things to share with you.

Here is the WORLD PREMIERE of the sizzle reel/trailer for MONSTER MASH.

And as an added bonus, another world premiere. TALES FROM THE NARROW BRIDGE, our feature length horror anthology.

Hendrickson’s Corner

Hendrickson’s Corner (Long) from Sam Platizky on Vimeo.

 

Hendrickson’s Corner has long been supportive of Narrow Bridge Films. They allowed us to film a scene from Cabin of Errors there. They allowed us to film a scene from Yellow Scare there. And most recently, they allowed us to film a scene from one of our Horror Anthology segments there (Mirrors).

Last March, Hendrickson’s had a fire in their kitchen that put them out of commission for 6 months. Only the bar has been open in the meantime. We are very excited that Hendrickson’s has recently reopened (soft reopening with a grand reopening on October 19th).

We love the food there. We love the people there. And we had a wonderful time making these commercials there.

We edited a few different versions of the commercial. Here are three of them.

Happy Narrow Bridge Films Day!

Happy Narrow Bridge Films Day! As promised, we have something special for you today. Previously “Cupid’s First Day” & “Click Send” were only available to watch at festivals and on Amazon Prime. You can still stream them on Prime, but for our fans who do not have access to it, you can watch BOTH shorts on our website now.

They are available to watch on their individual pages on the NBF Shorts Tab as well as right here!

 

 

We hope you enjoy, and if you are so inclined, please go to both films’ Amazon page, and give a review.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy Narrow Bridge Films Day.

Narrow Bridge Films Day

Did you know that there is a Narrow Bridge Films Day? It’s true. Among the amazing things that happened at last year’s Golden Door International Film Festival (buy tickets to this year’s here!) we received a certificate from the City of Bayonne declaring September 23, 2018 to be NARROW BRIDGE FILMS DAY.

NBF Day

See? So, since then, we have been trying to figure out something special to do for NBF Day. We weren’t sure if we wanted to do something as a group, or if we wanted to do something that might involve our fans.

Well, it turns out that (weather permitting), we are actually going to be filming something on 9/23, but we still wanted to do something.

And we are. Stay tuned for September 23rd for some cool stuff from Narrow Bridge Films.

NBF @ the GDIFF 2019!

GDIFF

The Golden Door International Film Festival. A film festival right in our backyard in Jersey City, NJ.

We started making films in 2010, and our first film Blaming George Romero was finished in 2011… just in time to submit it to the 1st annual Golden Door IFF. We got in.

Since then, Narrow Bridge has grown alongside GDIFF. In 2012, Red Scare played the HISTORIC Loews Theatre, which was amazing. Since then, Devil You Know, Cabin of Errors, Click Send, & Yellow Scare have all gotten in and we had a great time. Last year, Yellow Scare had a great screening (we PACKED that theatre filled with laughter) and won BEST COMEDY, BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Dan Gregory), and the first ever FOUNDERS’ AWARD. We received certificates from both Hudson County and Bayonne recognizing our contributions to the arts AND Mayor Jimmy Davis of Bayonne named September 23, 2018 NARROW BRIDGE FILMS DAY. It was an amazing weekend.

Bill & Michele Sorvino (and everyone who works with them on the festival) truly care about independent film, probably more than just about anyone else I have ever met… More, they care about the filmmakers themselves, and it shows each year with their amazing festival. Golden Door is not just the best film festival in NJ… It is one of the best festivals in the world, and we are honored, proud, and excited to be celebrating another year with them.

This year will be the first ever year that Golden Door is expanding to more than Thursday-Sunday. While the “Opening Night Gala” will still take place on Thursday, September 19th, there will be films playing on Tuesday & Wednesday as well.

And NBF is proud to represent our hometown of Bayonne, NJ in Block #1 at AndCoWork (201 Montgomery Street, Jersey City 07302) on Tuesday, September 17th. The NJ premiere of Cupid’s First Day and the WORLD premiere of Last Rehearsal of the Dangerous Kitten will screen before a documentary Celebrating Bayonne’s 150th Anniversary.

NBF is proud to be a Bayonne production company. We are excited to celebrate YEAR 9 of Golden Door and YEAR 150 of Bayonne in style.

Get your tickets today. Seating will be limited, and you don’t want to miss this event. Get tickets HERE. Everyone who shows up will get a FREE “Cupid’s First Day” stress ball in addition to a great night.

We hope to see you there.

Yours,

Sam Platizky, Founder
