Suicide Party Short in Oakland Film Festival April 4.
The Suicide Party Short will be featured at the Oakland Film Festival on April 4th in the 6-8:30 p.m. showing at the Bal Theater, 14808 East 17th Street in San Leandro. The short is very timely in light of the current concern with inequality, the loss of the middle class, and the spread of poverty in America. It tells the story of a once successful salesman about to lose everything, so he decides to hold a suicide party with the help of his friends who are struggling, too. If he can save his house and get back on his feet, he’ll live; if not, he’ll end it all, leading to a media frenzy and unexpected events. The producers are planning to enter even more festivals, and are offering contributors all kinds of perks for this help, including credits in the feature film, VIP invites, participation in the gala suicide party featured in the film, and more. More details on the film are at www.gofundme.com/suicide-party.
The first in three Suicide Party films, The Suicide Party: Project O is being directed by Jack Skyyler of Dear Skyyler Productions, with the lead actors Glynn Praesel and Brandon Gibson, who have together made over 30 feature films. The writer and one of the executive producers is Gini Graham Scott, the founder of Changemakers Publishing and Writing, who is the author of over 50 published books with major companies and 30 books published by Changemakers Publishing, her own publishing company. She is a partner in the Publishing Connection, which helps to connect writers and filmmakers with publishers, agents, producers, and others in the film industry. (www.publishingconnection.com) She also writes books and scripts for clients and has spoken about her films and books on hundreds of radio, TV, and Internet talk shows, Good Morning America, Oprah, and CNN.

Opportunities to Be Part of Feature with Top Director/Cast and Great Perks, including Being an Associate Producer. The director, producer, casting director, and 1st AD just reported back after a table read with actors about the latest great developments in the film to be shot in L.A. in July. They are already lining up distributors. I am the writer and one of the Executive Producers. There are now many opportunities to get involved, even if in the Bay Area – anywhere’s from $5 to $10 to get on the mailing list and get special invitations to being an associate, co-producer, or executive producer either as a contributor or partner/investor where you’ll share in the proceeds. Plus speaking roles can be worked into the film for contributors and partners. The film is about a guy about to lose his house and all he holds dear when he holds a suicide party with the help of friends; if he raises enough to save his house, he’ll live; if not, he’ll end it all. Think of “Everything Must Go” with Will Farrell as the kind of dark comedy with an important social theme that is the approach of this film. The film is listed on IMDB and you’ll see more details at www.gofundme.com/suicide-party. If you are interested in being a partner, email me at [address removed] and I’ll put you in touch with the director and producer.
