I can't wait to tell you the whole story about this movie! I will be writing more about it soon. The short part of the story is that I have been praying for 2 years that God would lead Nathan, who is in Hollywood, to a place where he could work with Christians in the media and entertainment industry.
Well, I am here to tell you that He answers prayers! By an amazing story of God's direction, Nathan is now working with a wonderful group of people, (including a great new friend of mine, Syd Forest Taylor, a mom of young children, like you), whose main intent is to get great films out that promote our family values and give us inspiring stories to show to our children.
Dolphin Tale is such a story! This movie even has 2 homeschool kids who play the main role! (The casting agents went to a local support group in California and found them!)
It is a family movie that will inspire, instruct, and bring you to tears because of the great story line.
This weekend, you will have the opportunity to go to a movie screening, so that you can see it for yourself, in order to promote it to your friends, your group, and your blogs.
The bottom line is that the marketing group behind this movie wants to show Warner Brothers and other companies that the those of us with Christian and strong family values are a big enough market to support other great movies with traditional, conservative family values. I am hoping you will be a part of this great opportunity with me!
I will be writing more next week, but right now, you must take advantage of a timely offer. If you are a coordinator of a mom's group, a blogger, a leader of a support group or a homeschooling leader, you can attend a special screening in your city to see this great movie for free, with the understanding that if you like it, you can encourage those in your arena to attend on opening day, September 23.
Here are two fantastic opportunities to share with you! This weekend, Warner Bros. is sponsoring free advanced screenings of Dolphin Tale for Mom's Groups, Bloggers, Support Group leaders and Homeschool leaders across the nation. Nathan has already seen it and loved it! You can check out the trailer for yourself on my side bar or at http://dolphintalemovie.warnerbros.com/ The screenings will take place this Sunday in the following markets:
|Atlanta||Cleveland||Detroit||Los Angeles||Philadelphia||Sacramento||Washington DC|
|Baltimore||Colorado Springs||Grand Rapids, MI||Los Angeles/OC||Phoenix||San Diego||Salt Lake City|
|Chicago||Denver||Kansas City||Minneapolis||Portland||St. Louis|
If you’re interested, don't hesitate to take advantage of this, and please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for the time and theater details.
They need all RSVPs by this Thursday, August 18. So hurry--first come first serve!
I am also super excited about the second opportunity! Warner Bros. is giving a separate set of screenings just for homeschoolers. Warner Brothers is curious to see if homeschooling really is a big enough market to target, and that is why they also included some homeschooling kids in this movie. Consequently, they are offering special screenings for homeschoolers and their groups. Homeschoolers will have the opportunity to see the film before anyone else! This is fantastic news to share with your readers and other homeschooling families you may know. Make sure they register at http://www.homeschoolmovieclub.com/join_us for a chance to attend the screening.
Help me to help my wonderful son Nathan, by helping us get the word out. Please put it on your facebook, twitter and any place else you can imagine. I will write more soon about this wonderful movie and what it represents for us to have an impact on Hollywood as those who have the value of affirming and validating our family values. Thanks so much for your help--and enjoy the movie!
***Update*** Thank you so much for the overwhelming response to this film and for your support! Dolphin Tales Media has now filled their capacity for all screenings and the link listed will no longer be effective.
