catch 22 Does NYC & Our Next Collaboration
Finally, this baby is landing in the Big Apple. The Soho International Film Festival has invited the film to participate in the NY Filmmakers Series, which is badass and appropriate because we are NY filmmakers. It will be playing Tuesday, June 14th @ 9:25P @ Village East Cinema in, logically, the East Village. Score your tickets sooner rather than later, as this thing will without a doubt be sold out.
It's a fancy-schmancy New York premiere so there'll be a red carpet and hot-shot actors to make it worth your while. Seanie and I will also be there to join the hot-shot actors for a Q&A afterwards, so you can ask us questions we don't have answers for, yell obscenities, or just throw stuff at us - whatever floats your boat. #SOHO7 with us!
We also have officially launched the next Locked in the Attic Productions/NYEH Entertainment collaboration - a film adaption of Seanie's latest play, Love Is Dead!, which is also opening tonight in NYC @ the 13th Street Repertory Theatre, and runs through the 14th. If you like what we did here with catch, you'll love what we're doing this second time around.
We've partnered with the more artistically-minded Hatchfund to pre-sell the film and help raise the financing. Hatchfund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that will allow for the bulk of campaign contributions to be tax-deductible. On top of the personal tax benefits for donors, a portion of the film's proceeds in distribution will be gifted to the Henry Street Settlement, an NYC-based community support organization that, among countless other services, helps homeless female survivors of domestic violence and their children get back on their feet with their Domestic Violence Survivors Shelter.
The campaign went live today @ http://loveisdeadmovie.com and the perks available for campaign contributors range from exclusive digital bundles of the film itself to limited edition graphic novels of the individual "sitcom episodes" comprising the film and Franky the Goldfish - the actual fish that is starring on stage in the run of the play. The campaign runs through Independence Day, because America. So support victims of domestic abuse and art, give yourself a tax write-off, and make another movie with us!
