Need help w/raising the remaining amount of money in order to get my two films to distribution!
Hi! Thank you so much for considering making a contribution to my project!!!! I am Connie Lamothe, the Producer and Director of two amazing Christian short films. The first, Rosie's Miracle (www.RosiesMiracleTheMovie.com) was completed in November 2008 and in March 2009 was screened and then the winner of Best Family Film at the New York Independent and International Film Festival. Just this past summer, it picked up yet another award at the World Music and Independent Film Festival under Best Director!
The second film, which is based on a true story, Reunion, (www.TheMovieReunion.com) was just completed this November and was premiered to a sold out audience in Winchester, VA. Since then, people are constantly asking how they can see it, where they can buy it, etc. It's a lovely love story and a tear jerker! Reunion has been accepted by the World Music Independent Film Festival and we will hear if it will screen and get any nominations sometime after the New Year. We will continue to show it at as many area theaters as possible and enter it into film festivals as well!
While both of these films are ready for public viewing, the lack of funding available has kept me from being able to get them out there to be seen! So here's where YOU come into the picture (if you choose to do so). I have just recently been offered digital distribution for both these films through iTunes. This digital distribution company uses emerging technologies with apps as its new media platform. New media distribution is the next way to monetize content through smart phones, tablets, Google TV, and other new digital media platforms that use media-rich apps. The AppFlik™ is being sold initially through iTunes since the very successful iPhone and iPad is currently the only viewing screen of choice. However, with the introduction of other platforms (i.e.Google TV, Apple’s iTv, DroidX), the sky is the limit for this form of digital distribution.
This application will cost me $2,500 of which I have already raised $1,600 plus I will seek a few hundred dollars for additional expenses related to copying the film, etc. and that's why I am here using Kickstarter to help me raise the additional money. Once the money is raised, the films will both be available through iTunes for worldwide purchase at the cost of just a few dollars!
I hope that you will strongly consider making this distribution deal a reality for those, who like me are seeking Christian family films with uplifting and inspiring content by contributing any amount you can give! Be blessed!!!
