It's been nearly a month since we launched our online store. We did this in hopes of raising of the remaining budget for Trailer Park Princess. It hasn't gone nearly as well as we had hoped but I am determined to make this film. I think one of the issues may be there isn't any guarantee the film will get made so people are hesitant to pre-order the film or purchase one of the packages.
If we don't raise the money needed we will refund the money to those who pre-ordered the movie or bought a package. This is an all or nothing proposition. I realize that wasn't made clear when we launched our store.
Hopefully this will ease some of the hesitation and reluctance to support the film. I am only as good as my word. I would not risk my future or my career by screwing people out of their money. If we do not reach our goal by July we will refund your money. This refund is only for the pre-order of Trailer Park Princess and the $30 package. Everything else that is purchased on our site are tangible goods and will be sent out.
I asked myself before we decided to offer up the movie for pre-sale if I thought it was possible to find 3,000 people to pre-order the film? It's a tall order, I realize that. But 3,000 people that's 60 people per state. If I personally visited each state could I find 60 people to invest $10 in my film? I think I could. Unfortunately I don't have the means to go on a cross country tour and visit each state. So, I must rely on the power of the internet and social media to get my message across. So far, less than a month in I have been able to find 10 people to take that chance. 2,990 to go.
If any one has any questions or concerns I am easy to get in touch with and I will be more than happy to answer your concerns.
On to what I've been up to. We have been busy preparing for a teaser trailer we are shooting March 25th. I am very excited about the concept for the trailer and plan on using this as an investment/marketing tool for Trailer Park Princess. I have also been working on my personal sizzle reel. I think it's important to show potential investors and customers what I am capable of achieving.
I have also been busy casting the remaining roles. There was a great response to my latest casting call and the level of talent available is astonishing. I can't wait to work these talented actors.
I hope you decide that this film and myself are worth the $10 investment. I promise you, if we reach our goal you will be proud that you did. Click HERE to check out my store and the items that are available.
