guess what? nearly all of the Slate Two films are nearing completion. that means we're having screenings!!! yay!
here's the info: we're actually having a whole miniature film festival within the much larger Hollywood Fringe Festival which kicked off last night at Fringe Central Station at 6314 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood. we're screening one feature film and 24 different shorts. all shows are $10 each and all of the shorts screenings (two of which are dedicated to the finished Slate Two films and the one completed Slate One film - yay!) are 21+ - but that also means drinks will be available for purchase at all screenings! sorry, kiddies.
here's the thing though: Strong Love, by John Sandel, was not finished in time for the film festival. that means that when we ship out the last of our packages in about ten days, they will NOT include 'Strong Love'. however, they WILL include two bonus films instead - The Rwanda Blend from Slate One and Drain - one of our three extra Slate Two films.
the complete Slate Two films (plus Rwanda Blend and Drain) are screening on Thursday, June 20th and Tuesday, June 25th. if you have free tickets to any of our screenings from giving to either the Slate One or Slate Two campaigns, you can definitely use them for ANY of these screenings - even the screening of the one feature film "Way Down In Chinatown" or the three other shorts screenings in WMMFest. to redeem them just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date and number of tickets you plan to redeem and then please make sure you bring the hard copies of the tickets that you should have received by mail. i'll respond as soon as possible letting you know whether or not your reservation was in before the show was sold out. please remember that until you receive an email confirmation from me, you should not expect your seat(s) to be held.
NOTE: that if you're one of the Slate Two people who are also owed a Slate Two DVD ($150 and up), you haven't been sent the hard copies of your tickets yet - just make note of that in your email to me and i'll respond with your reservation confirmation. if you plan to come to the screening and would like us to hold onto your rewards so that you can pick them up at the box office, please let us know right away.
