Only a few days left! Please keep pledging and spreading the word! We reached our minimum goal of $3,000 but it would help us out even more if we can reach $5,000.... We started placing ads for the opening and boy -- they're expensive!

THE FILM
Violet (Mindy Cohn), a self-proclaimed "oldest living faghag," decides to ditch her gay friends to find romantic love on her own -- with hysterically disastrous results. Shot in New York in the summer of 2009, we've had great success with the film on the festival circuit since it's May 2010 premiere. Before playing closing night at NYC's esteemed Newfest, TimeOut NY raved: "Sure to be another crowd-pleaser... The script is hilarious, the actors are right on...” More info at www.violettendenciesmovie.com.

OUR GOAL
We feel this hysterical comedy (as well as Mindy -- who is fantastic in it!) deserves a big theatrical release. So we, Casper Andreas (director/producer/actor) and Jesse Archer (writer/producer/actor), have decided to embark on our own theatrical release of the film. This includes booking theaters, making posters and trailers, and of course advertising and promoting the opening so we'll fill the movie houses and can book even more theaters!

So far we have booked QUAD CINEMA in New York, where the film will open on November 5th and SUNSET 5 in Los Angeles, where it will open on November 19th. Cast members will attend, answer questions, and maybe go home with you! We are hosting opening weekend parties in both cities. Currently we are talking to theaters in many other cities around the country.

YOUR HELP
It's a costly and risky endeavor to release a film in theaters on our own, but we know that with your help we can pull it off. Watch the film's trailer, check out the great rewards we are offering (Premiere tickets! Signed DVDs! Your name in lights -- okay, the film's credits! Associate Producer credit!) and join us on this exciting journey.

Then please help spread the word, both about the funding and of course about the illustrious opening. Violet is blowing up!
