The Campaigners -
This is our fundraiser for our independent film, The Campaigners. A political comedy that will make you laugh and cry. Please help!
The Campaginers are back, are you excited???
During the past few weeks a few things occurred that shaped the status of our beloved “The Campaigners” movie. The first being that we will have to delay the release of our film because of technical issues in post production. The second is that the movie “The Campaign” with Will Ferrell didn’t do well at the box office and we will not be able to really ride on the coat tails of their success. The latter does not hurt my feelings at all but it does worry me about the marketability of our movie. I am not sure if the industry won’t be afraid to actually release a movie like this. I am still really confident in our movie and I know that regardless of what happens when it gets released, who ever sees “The Campaigners” will love it!
We should have a teaser out pretty soon, and it will rock your socks off!

I like the idea of having a test screening. Which will do with the Kansas City Film Coalition in October. My co-writer Brad has been attending the meetings and getting contacts there. It’s a great group and will give us great feedback. I also want to have a test screening here in Chicago which our executive producer is getting contacts put together for us.
I am so anxious to get this done. The process is going slowly but…at least it’s going.
We will try and capitalize off Will Ferrel’s movie ” The Campaign” and use it to our advantage by embracing the similarities and not running from it. I think this is the best business decision as we show it as a take-off of that movie and not shy away from the movie.
I am really excited about the up coming few months and am a little nervous to see how this will appear on screen and how it is received.

Really anxious to get this project finished. I know it will be amazing once finished but there is still so much work to be done. I continually ask for guidance and strength on the project as in how to market it or what we need as far as post-production goes.
I got a job writing for a tv comedy show so that will help us out as far as networking goes. There is a lot of industry folks that will be a great asset to our film if they like our film.
Who knows how this movie will turn out…but it has been a learning process. : )
