We are proud to announce that we have wrapped principle photography on “I’ll Be Homeless For Christmas”! It was a great ride and we had a lot of fun. The work isn’t over just yet, though! There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for the film. First of all, we welcome Ingrid Weir to the team as our publicist! With over 9 years experience in the field, we hope to have this film in the public’s eye in theatres, multiple avenues of media coverage, and to bring on corporate sponsorship to help us reach our goal of $20,000!
Second, the producers are hard at work creating an electronic press kit for the film festival circuit. Expect announcements soon regarding our festival premiers coming in 2013!
We appreciate your ongoing support of this film and Habitat for Humanity of Newton County. HFH of NC has just contracted 7 homes to rehab and their goal is to do it by Christmas (however, they have until March of 2013 to fulfill the contract). Now more than ever they need our contribution to their organization. We have raised $4,067 on our own – now we’re looking to other avenues to help us meet our goal for the last 30 days of our campaign.
Please continue helping us spread the word! With Ingrid’s help, you may start seeing corporate sponsorship attachments and possibly be reading about us in newspapers or seeing us on the news a lot more often. We all have a chance to be a part of something big for a very charitable organization.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our campaign so far. We couldn’t have done it without you!
When a petty thief learns that his latest mark is a struggling single mother who works at a homeless shelter, he decides to use his savvy street smarts to make this Christmas one to remember for her and her young son.
We had another successful weekend of filming in Covington this week! We’re also proud to announce that we’ve raised $3,345.00 toward our campaign goal.
This weekend, Kelly Breedlove donated his entire home for “Conrad’s House” location in our film. We also shot more exteriors at Julia A. Porter UMC in Porterdale with the help of Ryan Norton. We are so blessed to have so many people who care about us pitch in to get us these locations for free and we appreciate every single one of our cast and crew for their hard work!
Our editor, Nicole Rogers, has also been hard at work putting together the DVD feature. This has been uploaded to vimeo and will be added to our campaign page as well. Get a sneak peak here:
Thanks again to you, our funders, who are making all of this possible!
