First off, thanks to everyone for the media outreach. We were able to get over 20 people reviewing and writing about the film in major sports publications throughout the country. We are promoting the film with no ad budget so everything is appreciated.
We are getting a ton of interest from sports related features... even though Hollywood still is ignoring the film. Even though we are now in over 130 theaters, even though we sold out Chicago in 8 hours and they had to expand it (the theater was bombarded with phone calls), even though something amazing happened in Kalamazoo where an organization bought out 2 entire screenings and all they are asking is people bring a donation for charity. Hollywood is more focused on covering the remake of Footloose than this incredible true people powered story. They just don't get it!
Please continue to get the word out to the media, to coaches, to clubs, and to anyone else who is interested. We are encouraging everyone to buy their tickets in advance. Get all the info at jaydemeritstory.com
When we pack these screenings and do it in the way that we did, then Hollywood and everyone else will take notice. Amazing things are happening, with entire teams, supporters groups, and organizations coming out to view the film. We have two weeks left! Everyone knows the road we have taken to get here. We are focused, foot to the pedal, looking forward! Thanks for your continued support!
