Happy 2014! I hope your year is off to a spectacularly silly start!
We've got some big news! If you're on the film's official mailing list then you probably already know what I'm going to say. If you want your news hot off the press from now on then you might want to sign up on our mailing list. Okay fine, I'll cut to the chase...
Our humble, one-hour show is becoming a six-hour series for PBS. That's right, a SIX-HOUR SERIES!!! We just can't do justice to the compelling stories about the emerging play movement and the way it's effecting every area of life in one hour. So we're rolling up our sleeves EVEN MORE, finding great partners, finding more great partners, and drinking heavily (mostly kale smoothies) to prepare us for the marathon ahead. It's going to be a big year!
Sooooo...in case you're wondering what's going on with your rewards. For those of you who are getting the MP4 file, digital downloads and DVDs, we will be sending you the first hour that launches the series just as soon as it's done. It's really the movie I had in mind when I did the Kickstarter. The only difference is that it's going to take a lot longer. We are still planing on having a sensational world Premier, so those of you with VIP passes can look forward to that. And for those of you who (secretly) can't wait to see your name in the credits, not to worry, they'll roll at the end of the first show. We don't have an air date for the series so we don't have a timeline so I can't tell you exactly when you'll see your rewards, but I'll definitely keep you posted.
In the meantime...
We'd Love Your Help!
We have three hot opportunities for the right match and would love your helping finding them.
1) Series underwriters! Do you have a connection to a company or organization that might want to sponsor the series? Let us know!!
2) Social media intern! It's hard to imagine replacing Jennifer, but we're going to try. Here's the job description from Craig's List.
3) A business partner with successful media and internet biz experience to work with me to develop the web platform and business for the ongoing play content, opportunities, and resources we'll be offering.
And finally, I thought you might enjoy my latest Huffington Post blog. This one is very close to my heart and gives Macy-the-mutt her well-deserved 15 min. of fame (Sorry Garbanzo; next time). I hope you enjoy it.
It's a big wish list for 2014 so thanks for any leads. As an expression of gratitude Garbanzo will come to your house and give you a big wet kiss. Or not.
With ongoing gratitude to you for playing your part,
Gwen, Garbanzo, and the Seriously! team
