Urbanworld Film Festival Recap

Happy Wednesday!

I'm back from my recent trip to New York for Urbanworld Film Festival and I'm more inspired than ever.

HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to all of the amazing folks who helped make my trip possible, especially my awesome family and the amazing Emily K. Ryan. (PS your incentives are on the way)

My trip was filled with tons of networking and a few potential distribution deals for NAILgasm. Stay Tuned!

Update #18

NAILgasm is headed to New York for a major FILM FESTIVAL

Comment

Greetings Family,

NAILgasm is headed to New York for a major FILM FESTIVAL, but not without your help.

The average film costs $35.9 million to market. From day one, NAILgasm: The Nail Art Documentary, has had a marketing budget of $0.00. I’ve never been able to afford a publicist, a marketing team, a billboard, a bus ad, or any of the traditional marketing methods you see while out and about in the world. Nothing! So how does one market a film with no money? With the kindness and generosity of amazing supporters like YOU! Otherwise, without courageous supporters of the arts like YOU, only the elite or well-connected get exposure, and the underserved remain just that, under-served. 

Here’s what your generous support has helped NAILgasm accomplish so far: 

  • NAILgasm has been written about by Beauty powerhouses like Allure Magazine, the Style Network, Highsnobette, The Daily Beast and more. 
  • NAILgasm has been seen by hundreds of people in over 20 countries across the world. 
  • NAILgasm’s social networks are followed by more than 50,000 people across the globe. 
  • NAILgasm was announced as an official selection of BET and HBO’s Urbanworld Film Festival in the Wall Street Journal. 

Not bad for a film with no marketing budget, right? 

 If you’ve ever needed a reason to pat yourselves on the back, this is it. Your support has helped NAILgasm beat seemingly insurmountable odds in the film world, and we’re not done yet. 

On September 21, 2013, NAILgasm: The Nail Art Documentary will make its theatrical debut in New York in front of Urbanworld’s film festival audience of respected journalists, filmmakers, film distributors and network executives from BET, HBO and more. (will provide a link to tickets soon) 

Now I need your support more than ever. 

While the festival is providing the theater NAILgasm will be screened in, it’s up to us to generate all the buzz we can. Additionally, there are some hard costs to cover that I will be running a small fundraiser for, with awesome incentives of course. 

This time around, my goal is to raise $1,500 to cover the cost of travel and marketing materials like movie posters, flyers, t-shirts and any other promotional items I can think of. The more buzz we generate, the more influential people from the film industry we can get at the screening and hopefully see NAILgasm on Netflix or network television some day. 

Even one dollar helps. But if you’d like to give more, I’ve created some special incentives: 

  • An in-kind donation of $5 will get you a shoutout on Instagram/FB/Blog/Twitter 
  • An in-kind donation of $10 you will receive a digital copy of NAILgasm and stickers. 
  • An in-kind donation of $25 you will receive a digital copy AND DVD of NAILgasm , plus stickers. 
  • Donations over $50 you will receive all of the above plus free VIP admission to any future NAILgasm screening. 

If you would like to help, you can donate directly through PayPal or visit www.shopNAILgasm.com

Thank you all for your continued support of any kind. I look forward to having more great NAILgasm news for you soon. 

 With Gratitude, 

Ayla “Brass” Montgomery

Hello and I hope you're all having a wonderful summer so far.

A few quick updates about NAILgasm

2. NAILgasm is now available to stream on IndieFlix! What is IndieFlix? It's like Netflix but for independent films. You can stream right on your computer or gaming console. IndieFlix has also featured yours truly as a "Featured Filmmaker" for NAILgasm. You can read the full interview here

3. Last but not least, I've been getting a lot of questions about how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign so I decided to make a video about it. Here are my 5 CROWDFUNDING SECRETS TO GETTING YOUR DREAM FUNDED [VIDEO]
