Press Release

January 23, 2013
     America Young and April Wade proudly announce the FIRST EVER LIVE STREAMING BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE of the feature film, that isn’t scripted or edited, giving the audience a truly authentic look at making a movie on a micro budget – and helping create it as well!
                                            The Concessionaires Must Die!
                          LOGLINE: On the brink of their beloved single screen
                      independent movie theater being shut down forever, a misfit
                         band of nerdy theater workers face the evils of corporate
                      theaters, foreclosure and even scarier, having to decide what
                                they want to be when and if they ever grow up.
                                             Concessionaires Assemble!
     The Concessionaires Must Die! is a feature film that we will be shooting in the Spring of 2013. But, the filmmakers are live streaming NOW. The audience has been invited to all of the
production meetings, castings, table reads, location scouts etc. and share in the process of making an independent film. The team will be working to take into account the audience’s
thoughts and feelings, listen to criticisms and integrate their resources into the process as well.

     As these filmmakers embark on the journey of completing their project, they will be using Stickam, Facebook and Twitter to tell the story behind the story and source out suggestions from
the audience as well as sharing who they are and what inspires them – to help add the rich tapestry of the film itself. They hope that by getting to know the people they are making the story for in a more personal way, that the audience for the film itself well grow and have an authentic investment in the final product.

Daniel is rad.

Daniel really gave us some THINKERS. We loved going through these and getting all "filmmaker-y." Thank you for being rad (and being our friend), Daniel!

Aaron is cool.

Aaron is cool - and he came up with a VERY cool concept. So, here is a plug:

Inside Jokes Project
Tweet your inside jokes and get back fake a explanation and maybe art of it. Or tweet your own fake explanations :) A project by @GameJumperX & @notcoolgurl
He also wrote some cool questions to answer, which we attempted to be cool doing, but cannot reach the level of cool that he has. It's just impossible.

Angie rocks.

Angie rocks. I'd leave it at that, except that she sent in some pretty fun questions, so we went ahead and answered them. So, I am going amend the previous statement to say that Angie rocks at writing questions. And at life.
