Tickets for Film and Networking Event on 10/9. I visited our location for the networking and film event on 10/9 at the SF School of Digital Filmmaking, 925 Mission Street, San Francisco. It’s a great location. We will have a screening room, next to a reception area that is great for networking. We’ll be providing some light snacks, including chips, dips, cookies, soda, and juice for the networking before and after the program. Please be sure to get your ticket, since there is only room for 50 people, and we already have 15 tickets sold and only 6 half-price $5 tickets left with one day more for Early Bird sales (and there are 32 RSVPs in the 5 Meetup Groups I’ve invited so far. I’ll be sending out invitations more generally to the film and business communities on Sunday, SO GET YOUR TICKETS THROUGH EVENTBRITE IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY DONE SO at https://shortfilmsandbusinessnetworking.eventbrite.com. If this event sells out as expected, I’ll find a larger venue for the next event, but we aren’t able to move this one or accommodate more than 50 people.
Exciting Crowdfunding Campaign News. Our Indiegogo campaign for THE SUICIDE PARTY continues to grow, now up to $255 in contributions, with subscribers, fans, and contributors now in other U.S. cities as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our last press release got distributed to over 6000 media contacts. As a result, we just added a new perk for those who want their name, company, city, and state listed in our regular press release – a great way to get national attention for what you do through search engine listings. You can also see the photo video of our big party at the Taverna Aventine on September 11, as well as a photo video of the first day of shooting. Photos for the 2nd and 3rd day of shooting will be up shortly. Plus we now have a SIZZLE REEL for the film to go up in the next day or too. It’s as little as $5 or $10 to become a subscriber or fan, and as a fan, you can get half-price tickets to our networking events and other parties. We’ll be adding a promotional code you can use to get the discount Plus stay up to date with the latest developments – with opportunities for roles in the film, since there will be over 300 extra for a big party scene, aside from the lead and supporting roles.
