Do you all remember the kick butt interview that I did with Julie Ann Emery about her new show Drifter? Well if you don’t, you should go read part 1 and part 2. Then, come back here and read this post.
Glad you’re back and if you didn’t leave, thanks for staying. So rather than try to explain what happened, I’m going to quote part of Julie Ann’s email to me.
So…exciting DRIFTER news! Because our crowd funding campaign gained so much early attention, we are now in talks with multiple production companies to produce the show! Yay!
None of this would have been remotely possible without you. The fact that you believed in the show so early on and contributed toward making our dream for DRIFTER come true is overwhelming for our entire team.
But rather than take your hard earned money, we want to make THEM pay for the show! So we are scuttling the crowd funding campaign to further pursue production company funds, and extending you an invitation to become a VIP in the DRIFTER family. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. We won’t forget your early belief in our dream.
I’m really proud and honored to have been part of making this show a reality in such a big way. I never in a million years thought that my little infant blog would have such a big impact on something and draw the attention of people who can make dreams come true.
I’ve always believed that “new media” is the way of the future and this really proves it to me. I believe that most people will stop watching shows on the television and will be watching them on the internet. It’s already starting to happen.
Anyhoo, I’m very happy that this is happening. Congratulations to all who are involved in the show and good luck going forward.
