Hannover House Pacts With Studio 3 Entertainment for Major Home Video Campaign Supporting "Humans Vs. Zombies" Release

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannover House, Inc., the newly rebranded corporate name for Target Development Group, Inc. (Pinksheets: TDGI), will unleash an apocalypse of horror and promotions with the May 8, 2012 home video release of "Humans Vs. Zombies," a new sci-fi-thriller from director Brian T. Jaynes ("Boggy Creek: The Legend Is True").  The feature thriller was inspired by the hugely popular role-playing game of the same name, and marks the second home video release between Hannover House and Studio 3 Entertainment.

"Humans Vs. Zombies" tells the story of a worldwide conflict between a group of human survivors battling against an ever-growing army of insatiable zombies.  The film enjoyed a key market theatrical release in October and November, and has been selected as a featured movie for broadcast on the Chiller Network, a division of the SyFy Channel and NBC Universal.  With more than 600,000 participants in the "Humans Vs. Zombies" popular role-playing game, the film should enjoy a solid base of support in addition to the evergreen market for zombie properties.  Zombie-themed films and television programs have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years, with features such as "28 Days Later" and "Zombieland" further enhanced by television hits such as AMC's hit series, "The Walking Dead."

The release campaign will include extensive publicity and outreach to the role-playing community, including social media and internet. Promotions and ads will also include Sci-Fi / Horror fan magazines, the SyFy Channel and the Chiller Network. An item of special interest to horror fans will be a "Motion Comic Book" as a bonus feature on both the DVD and Blu-Ray editions.  The Motion Comic Book tells the prequel story leading up to the "Humans Vs Zombies" feature plot, with graphic-novel style illustrations, graphic action, motion, audio and action similar to other Motion Comic hits, "Animatrix", "Iron Man: Extremis", and "The Walking Dead."

"This is one of the best known franchise titles in the horror community now," said Eric Parkinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House.  "Once again, director Brian Jaynes delivers the goods that the sci-fi and horror fans demand and has created one of the most entertaining zombie features of all time.  We think 'Humans Vs. Zombies' will be a huge hit in this market, and will be a top item for video sell-thru, video rentals and video-on-demand streaming," he concluded.

The cast includes Madison Burge ("Seven Days in Utopia"), Frederic Doss ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra"), Larry Jack Dotson ("I Love you Phillip Morris"), Christine Quinn ("Shark Night 3D") and Ali Faulker ("Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn").  Executive Producers for the film were Bruce Kahn, Brian Jaynes and Niko Foster; line producer was Amy Soto and consulting producer was Nicholas Leyva.

"We have enjoyed working with Hannover House on their successful launch of 'Boggy Creek' to the home video market," said Brian Jaynes.  "They have designed a terrific campaign for the video release of 'Humans Vs. Zombies' and we look forward to seeing it all come together."

Zombies" are expected to be widely available at most major retailers on on-line sites selling or steaming videos.

THEATRICAL RELEASE REVIEW:

"Director Brian T. Jaynes gives us a new approach... the movie does focus more on our surviving characters than some other zombie movies that simply rely on blood and gore. The FX and makeup in the movie are great and look awesome! The HVZ story is original and very unique and is a breath of fresh air for this zombie fan! Madison Burge ("Friday Night Lights") plays Tommi, the strong female lead who in the beginning is a little too standoffish but ultimately ends up kicking zombie ass. Frederic Doss ("Transformers", "G.I. Joe") plays Frank who is a paranoid, shell-shocked campus security guard who is the movies anti-hero and is a lot of fun to watch. Humans Versus Zombies takes a whole new approach to zombie story telling!

Can I watch this again? HVZ gets a big HELL YES! Bottom line is if you're looking for a new zombie movie with a great story and fresh approach I highly recommend Humans Versus Zombies!"

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
