After years of hard work, we’ve beaten the odds as NORMAN will be released by AMC Independent in 6 cities and 10 theaters on October 21st! Now the stakes are high, the competition is fierce and we need your help to give the film a final push.
We just launched a fundraising campaign on a popular crowd-funding website called Kickstarter (see link below). Projects on Kickstarter raise money via incentives, such as limited edition posters, t-shirts, and unique items related to the film. Pledges start at $1 and go as high as $8,500. Please help us spread the word if you think you know anyone who might be interested in contributing on any level. We’ve got some amazing incentives lined up.
In many ways a “perfect storm” is brewing. With AMCi, we have a great distribution partner, Andrew Bird’s soundtrack will be released ten days before the film and we’re working with an incredible non-profit called “To Write Love On Her Arms.”
Did you know that suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for 18-24 year old Americans?! This stat continues to amaze us and everyone that hears about it. We’re particularly excited to work with TWLOHA to use this film as a tool to raise awareness about such an important issue. TWLOHA has over 1.5 million Facebook fans, very active street teams around the country (8k people) and university chapters (50). They are committed to working with us to run online and local campaigns both where the film will be airing as well as campaigning to get the film to cities not yet planned for release.
So, if you’ve made it this far, thank you! As mentioned, please help us spread the word about our Kickstarter fundraiser…any little bit helps.
Thanks so much for your help and support!!
