Starting to Promote my film: Vegan Fitness Built Naturally

#1 Postby robert » Thu Oct 27, 2005 2:46 am

Hello my Vegan Friends!

I'm back on a computer...over the the library.

I'm finally starting to promote my vegan film coming out in just a few weeks! I've been so busy that I've mostly been doing interviews and allowing other websites and magazines to promote the film.

I finally whipped something together really quickly to put on the main website. You can view it here:

http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/article/736

It is very rough. I don't know much about website work and I've been out of touch with my website guy for a very long time...he moved away.

So I'll be doing it mostly on my own but I'll try to clean up the main site a bit and get a bunch of new features about:

The Vegan Fitness Team

I hope to get a trailer online to view in the next couple of weeks. I do have some DVD copies of an extended trailer I'm sending out with t-shirt orders.

Anyway, please get excited about the film. It is almost here!

-Robert

Awesome Will,

Yeah, the movie is going to be totally awesome, entertaining, informative, funny, and inspiring.

I just started to promote it (I've been focusing on my contest a lot lately) and I'm open to any suggestions.

We've already done some TV shows, magazine interviews, website interviews and things like that. We also did live appearances, talks, put up posters, passed out DVD trailers, etc.

But please read the feature on the link above so you know what the film is about and feel free to give me suggestions on ways to promote the film.

Thanks!

Rob

Hey Renee,

I'll have all of those answers soon. The project is nearly a year in the making but we're finally getting toward the very end and we'll start doing more marketing and I'll have more details about some of the specific aspects of the film.

I hope to get a trailer for the film up on the website soon too. I'm typically short on money and time every week so sometimes things take me a little while, but I'm getting there 8)

-Rob

Are you going to have any screenings? A few yeas ago they had a screening of the witness at the Hollywood theater here in Portland; I think it had been sponsored by food fight. But I could be wrong about that. I could ask them if they know how much it would cost to show it there and if they would be interested in helping to promote it. How long is it? Even if your not going to show it maybe you could put up some flyers in their store…. I think their cool about that kind of thing. If there is a way to send a flyer to me I could hang it up.

Yeah, we do plan on doing some local showings/screenings in a variety of cities. Possibly in Vancouver, B.C., Seattle, Portland, Corvallis, Eugene, and in California. Basically all along I-5 on the West Coast.

I'm open to all ideas, suggestions, etc. I'm really busy with full-time work and other side projects so I'm usually busy 60 hours a week or something like that but when I have time I'm going to spend the next couple of months using my free time to work on marketing for my movie.

Keep the ideas coming!

Robert

You may have thought of this already, but I bet groups like PETA, Farm Sanctuary, etc might be willing to list the movie for sale in their catalogs.

Cool, thanks Will.

PETA already has a copy of the trailer. The actual film should be out in a matter of weeks!!! Then I'll get a copy over to them so they can see the whole thing.

I will look into the other organizations listed.

I'm still looking for any ideas to help marketing so anyone else have any?

There are a lot of things I overlook and many things I've never thought of so I appreciate all the help.

I know a handful of you have seen the trailer. I've been sending them out t-shirt orders, and I do hope to get a mini-trailer online sometime soon.

From what I understand, the Nov/Dec issue of VegNews talks about my movie but I haven't seen the magazine yet. They are doing another feature on our movie in the Jan/Feb issue as well, from what I've been told.

Some other magazines and publications may mention it as well.

Thanks in advance for any more ideas :D

Definitely contact PCRM.ORG (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) about both the movie and the calender. I think they would be extremely interested, seeing how they are a bunch of vegan doctors and nutritionists trying to promote the healthfulness of veganism.

Awesome Nat,

Thank you my friend :D

I will also write up an updated text description about the film. I got some good feedback on that write up I have listed here:

I will change some things and update it this weekend.

If you have the resources, you could donate copies to public libraries or see if they will do displays. See this for an idea: http://www.mercyforanimals.org/library_outreach.asp
