Moo-ving on*

Posted by Andy Heathcote & Heike Bachelier (Creator)

THE MOO MAN has had a great start on Kickstarter, so thank you all so much for all your pledging! We are now running into the slower middle of the Kickstarter campaign, 14 days to go and in the Doldrums. Now it is even more important to get the word out. Please tweet or facebook about our Kickstarter campaign to let your friends and their friends know about #TheMooMan. We are @moomanmovie

Lots of news in the meantime: EMPIRE in London will make the trailer for THE MOO MAN. They love the film and are really sympathetic to the cause. GREAT. Normally they do trailers for all the Hollywood big guys! (They are pictured below with Andy in their very nice Empire office.)

Another great thing about Kickstarter is that people also get in touch just wanting to help out. That is so, so heartwarming and extremely useful, so many thanks to you all too.

More and more cinemas, film societies and even village halls are getting in touch now too, keen to book the film. So please do keep spreading the word so that we can let more people and venues know about THE MOO MAN. 

Could you request the film at your local cinema? This makes a huge difference as cinema managers are very susceptible to people power - they know that when a customer walks in the door and makes a request that it's a sure sign of 'bums on seats'.

We will be back in touch very soon with more updates and news, but thank you so much for everything you have all done so far,

best wishes

Andy and Heike

      Could well be interested in bring The MOO MAN to a village hall near us or to Lewes. How might we proceed?
      We have been running Reel Films for Real People for some time and would like to show it to our attendees and to the local Transition Initiative.
      All the best
