We’re up for Indiewire’s Project of the Month! …which is incredibly exciting. Put simply if The Fitzroy wins we receive a consultation with the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival and more importantly register a blip on the film world’s sonar!
We had a production meeting over the weekend. At the very start we went around the table and all said what we want the film to achieve and what was most important to us. Of course stuff like ‘be the first step on the career ladder’, ‘win awards’, ‘gain industry respect’ and ‘make loads of money’, all came up. Those goals are important but there were two things that we all agreed stood above everything else.
1) Make the best film possible.
2) Get as many people to see it as possible.
Those are our goals for the film!
But to get as many people to see the film as possible we need to start building awareness now!
We’ve had a great start with Kickstarter but we really need your help in spreading the word about The Fitzroy and getting as many people behind the project.
In my head I see a Fitzroy army!
So please gather your arms, join the front line and vote for The Fitzroy.
HOW TO VOTE:
Please be sure to follow these simple steps. If not, your vote will not count!
1) Visit Indiewire: LINK
2) VOTE for The Fitzroy (or whoever you like – but we hope it’s the Fitzroy).
3) Enter your EMAIL address and then click on “VOTE”.
4) Check your email for an email from “Polldaddy” (it might go to your junk folder!) and hit “Confirm Poll Vote.”
And that’s it. If only democracy were as simple.
Please help us SPREAD THE WORD – post it on Facebook, email to your friends, tweet it… if you’re in a coffee shop and see an attractive person on their mobile device but are struggling to find an ice breaker? Go over and tell them to vote! Okay that last one is a bit specific but you get the picture.
We think the vote is going to go down to the wire – EVERY VOTE REALLY DOES COUNT.
NB* Even if you voted for ‘project of the week’ in December, I’m afraid you need to vote again for it to register for ‘project of the month’.
