ZOMBIES!!!

Jon
has given a task to Josh, but unfortunately for Josh, he has to go down
to the bowels of the building to complete it. He’s been down there
before. He knows something dreadful resides there, but his desire to
please overrules his fears (and his common sense). Those fears are
justified. Will this be the end of Josh?

Warn your friends
and loved ones! Jas. Townsend & Son has been overrun by Zombies! Be
sure to watch the video, “Death by Zombies.” It’s a 15-minute short film
produced by Jas on the latest misadventures of Josh. Don’t miss this
back-room view of what really happens here at Jas. See the video on our
homepage or HERE.
I would recommend trying it out full screen with your speakers turned
up - there is a lot of detail and you don’t want to miss it.

Music from the Video

If
you like the music in the video, the “Death By Zombie” theme song will
be available shortly on itunes and Amazon, stay tuned for more
information. In addition, in the near future, we will be carrying on
our website Hillary and Rick Wagner’s CD “More Luck to Us” which has
music also featured in this video.

Halloween Costumes

It’s not too late, but you have to hurry! We have a great supply of the girls’ colonial costumes in stock and a nice supply of the Boys’ Revolutionary War Coats and Boys’ Hunting Shirts…just
in time for your little colonial reenactor’s book report, Halloween
costume, or family Thanksgiving celebration! Call right away while the
supplies last!

Crimson Bond

“I love these videos!” and “I can’t wait for the sequel!” are just a couple of the warm responses we’ve received from viewers and customers. All 17 episodes of Crimson Bond are now available online for your viewing pleasure.

Crimson
Bond is a story about redemption and friendship. As a young boy, Jon is
pressured to take an oath that he will watch over his cousin, Josh, and
keep him from harm. This obligation eventually becomes more than he can
bear as tension between duty and self-preservation reaches a breaking
point.

The entire 70-minute movie is also available without interruption on DVD.

Crimson Bond, the Final Episode

The entire movie, Crimson Bond, is now available on our Youtube channel, presented in seventeen episodes. Visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFx2hRqeMyw&list=PL5338B70371AC837E&feature=plpp for the playlist that will play the entire movie.

Crimson Bond is a 70-minute motion picture produced by Jas Townsend & Son. It is an endearing story about two friends, Jon and Josh (played by Jas. Townsend & Son’s very own Jon Townsend and Joshua King), who unwittingly serve in the Continental Army in the Ohio wilderness under the command of a tyrannical commander. Jon is begrudgingly bound to Josh by a childhood promise to keep Josh safe from the trouble that seems to hound him at every turn. The tension between this promise and self preservation finally reaches a breaking point as the two find themselves falling deeper into danger.

Crimson Bond is a fictional tale, not a documentary. Its theme of friendship, loyalty, and redemption, combined with a bit of light-hearted humour in the midst of darker circumstances, is intended to entertain the entire family.

We hope you enjoy watching this production as much as we enjoyed making it. Crimson Bond is available from our website on DVD in its entirety without interruption.
