Wow. It's been a busy couple of months as we approach our theatrical premieres in New York and LA. So many people have come together to make this happen, but we wouldn't be here without YOU.
You are part of an amazing group that lifted this film up when it needed a boost. And we hope you'll stay engaged through our initial theatrical run. There is growing evidence that we could have a real impact with this film as it begins to hit theaters all over the country in a few weeks.
So let's keep the momentum going! Here are a few ways you can get involved right now:
- Visit our GET INVOLVED page where you'll find different ways to plug in like requesting the film for your city, organizing group trips to theaters, arranging for advanced group sales for your organization...and more!
- Head over to our FLIXSTER PAGE and say "I want to see this!"
- Check out and share our TRAILER ON iTUNES!
Your Pledge at WORK!
Because of your support we've been able to retain Film Presence, a fearless and committed little company in New York led by Sara Kiener and Merrill Sterritt that specialize in the marketing and outreach of independent films. They've worked on amazing films including 5 Broken Cameras, Being Elmo, Hell and Back Again...and now The Waiting Room! They're doing an incredible job, so how about three cheers for the gang at Film Presence!
And across town our booking agent Wendy Lidell at International Film Circuit is working the phones getting us booked in some of the best indie theaters in the country. Go Wendy!
And let's not forget our publicists: Adam Segal at the 2050 Group running national and New York, and Amy Grey at Dish Communications working the LA and Academy scene. They're doing a great job telling our underdog story and getting us coverage. If you have any press contacts or people you think should know about the film please let us know. Chances are they've got it covered...but you never know!
Between this group of talented folks and your passion we are optimistic about the potential of our film. This Kickstarter group is made up of a connected and very talented group of people...and that includes YOU. So if you have an idea of how you might be able to help get audiences engaged with our film please let us know.
We are also interested in VOLUNTEERS to help get the word out about our New York, LA and Bay Area premieres. Become a member of one of our "street teams" handing out flyers and helping us brainstorm organizations to contact. If you're interested in helping out let us know and we'll put you to work for one hour, one day or one week...whatever works for you.
I have lots more to report, and you'll being hearing more from me in the coming weeks. But right now I've got to get my kids up and off to school.
