Noah Kennedy is the sole survivor of a terrifying and tragic event. For half a century he becomes obsessed with finding a way to change history. Then the possibility opens up. But to save his friends and the woman he loves, he will have to relive it again.
Pulp Productions is an independent film production company based out of Antioch, Illinois. It was started by Brian Naydol, who has written and directed four independently produced feature films. Until The End Of Time is our fifth feature film. Our films have been shot all over Southern Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, and Chicago. For this film, we are amping everything up, from new equipment to new locations to a stellar team.
Here’s a look at what we’ve done and what’s to come:
Tread This Fantasy (2017)
Darkness Has Covered My Light (2016)
The Barlow House (2015)
Victims of Fun (2014)
Until The End Of Time (pre-production)
Measure Of Devotion (pre-production)
Large Sausage 16 (2017) (post production)
Movies are a source of joy in people’s lives and as indie filmmakers we feel inspired to spread that joy. We look up to the great filmmakers who are out there right now sharing stories and making art. We have built a team of dedicated and talented individuals that share this common goal.
Horror films have a huge cult following, and indie films thrive in this genre. Our goal is to appeal to this crowd of people seeking indie horror, and give them not only that, but a truly good movie. Until The End Of Time is a unique blend of horror, sci-fi, romance, and comedy like you’ve never seen before. It is the story of what happens when you have the power to influence the past and change your circumstances. We want people who see this movie to enjoy themselves, and to be totally invested in this universe and the characters in it. We are all unbelievably excited about this film, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Since we started, things have been challenging, I have sugar coated a lot of the events. We went to Tennessee very short handed. We had a lead actor who quit a week before we were to start filming in TN, we had six members of crew that just quit a week or two prior to our start, we had some equipment issues, but everything was in motion and we couldn't delay, so our team went down to the Smokey Mountains for six days and worked non-stop to get everything done and we did it all, and what we got turned out amazing.
If you follow film news, you see a lot of troubled productions, and I didn't want to sound like we were one of those, but in reality, we were. Those six days of shooting had a profound impact on many of us. I remember first getting to the cabin and how excited we all were to get to work, but by the end, we couldn't get away fast enough. Working almost non-stop, being together the whole time with little room to ourselves, little sleep, a lot of big personalities, it took a toll, and the months that followed didn't help.
As an artist who is telling a story, I have a vision of that story and I don't like to compromise. We had several shoots following returning from TN, but they didn't feel very good. One shoot in Chicago worked for what we needed it to be, another shoot, our first future shoot, didn't turn out as I wanted for a combination of reasons, so I felt there was a better way to do it, then came more internal fighting, and I lost my passion for the project. I decided to set it to the side for a while. You can't just finish something like this to finish, you have to have that love and passion or what you end up with is hollow and pointless. One of our lead actors argued that the quality didn't matter, that we should just finish it any way possible, but that is not the way I do things. The easy path is usually not the correct path, so it sat.
Over time, the cast and crew slowly drifted away. I tried to mentally recover. I knew the footage we had was great and it wouldn't go to waste, but, with a few issues I had to now correct because of chaos caused by some of the cast, and with the future story I wanted to change for the better, I had to think long and hard about how to continue and make this film good rather than just finish, so it sat for over a year.
After a lull and working through a bumpy road, we are getting back on track with "Until the End of Time.” The script was always in two pieces, a future and a past and I reworked parts of the past and I rewrote the future part to create a much better script, I am actually really excited for how I rewrote it and how much better it is. I think when people see the final product, they will be very pleased with the changes.
It's not the film we started with, but it will be a far better film we end with. We will be working on shooting the new version of the rest of the film over the next couple of months. We will be adding new actors and crew to complete the filming of the future section, we will be bringing back some of our original actors as well as a team of voice actors, and hope to finish filming in January 2019. Following that, we will hire a post production team to finish the film over the spring and summer are targeting a release date of September 14, 2019.
To bring professional editors, sound engineers, effects artists and musicians on board, it will cost a good amount of money. We are asking everyone who sees this to share with anyone possible who may want to help with our little film. Many of you who are reading this have already supported this project, please show people what we are doing and tell them why you are supporting us. Share it with everyone you can, your friends, your family, your neighbors, doctors, roommates, the person next to you on the train, anyone, anywhere you can. We want to be sure what we have made is the best it can be, professionally done in every way. We don't want to sacrifice quality because we couldn't get the right people to work on it because this film is going to be too good for that and we will wait until we can do it right to jump into post production. Please, keep supporting us, keep sharing, help us tell the world what we are doing. Below is also a link to our "Tread This Fantasy" teaser, on a side note, one of lead actors in the film and friend of mine Jeremy Lindholm made his "Twin Peaks" debut in the sixth episode. Finally, make sure you are following us on Instagram @pulpproductionsfilms for new photos from all our projects being posted all the time.
As always, thank you for everyone who has supported us so far, you are all heroes to us. Please help us get to the finish line.
