-- Fofanugget Productions
has announced its name change to Altare Productions,
to coincide with season 3 of the independent web TV series, Day Zero,
which is still in production with star Shawn Stevens
leading the cast, representing a new path and continued improvement in the works of Cal Nguyen
who will still be responsible for heading operations, direction, screenwriting, filming and post-production.Altare
in Latin stands for "altar", which is rooted in biblical Sacred Scripture as a command by God to build up His Church and her members as an offering and sacrifice to Him. The dove represents the Holy Spirit while the host (Bread of Life or Eucharist - the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ) is cleverly symbolized as a film reel sitting underneath, showing a wanton dominance of spiritual matters over the film world, one of the goals of the studio to invoke the help of the Holy Spirit through a ministry of evangelizing others with the medium of the arts.
For the curious, former Fofanugget Productions
was inspired by inside humor between Mr. Nguyen and his brother TJ
, who was a script editor on a number of season 2 episodes. It represented a cross between casinos with the name "nugget" in them and a Volkswagen
vehicle from earlier times. This change recognizes it may have caused confusion among peers in the film industry as well as the audience, and therefore was long overdue for an overhaul.
