  • FINAL NOTE

Project Twenty1 officially Launched this past Saturday, November 11th, at Connelly Hall at the University of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. Although attendance was not required, at least 2/3 of our Teams sent representatives to ask questions and learn the secret Element. Several Teams came in their entirety! To see pictures from our glorious Launch Event, check our website! If you would like to donate some Launch Photos, send them here or direct us to the URLs.

The Red & Blue Screening sets were also revealed, so if you haven’t already, please check out one of the newest additions to our website, the Team Screening Sets. Note: This is not the final screening order; this is simply to show in which set your film will appear. This way, you know how many tickets to buy for which screening.

CLAIM YOUR TICKETS

Speaking of tickets, did you know each Fearless Team Leader receives 2 free tickets to the screening of his/her choice? Write to us and tell us which screening you would like to attend, and we will reserve them for you and make sure they’re ready to greet you at the door. And tell your freeloading friends to go buy their own so they can VOTE for your film to go on to the Best of Screening in January!

Tickets
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELVES

The other update to our website: the About Our Teams Page, detailing Team biographies & home towns. If we have incorrect information (or NO information) listed for you, please contact us and tell us what to say. After all, we’re here to promote YOU, and we want people visiting our site to know our Teams as well as we’ve gotten to know you these past several weeks.

YOU BE THE JUDGE

So, you’re in this thing to win it, eh? Well, since the judges and the Audience members are going to be the ones voting, and thus determining which films move on to the Awards Screening, that means you better get as many of your friends as you can to International House to vote for your film on December 4th and 5th! To help you spread the word, we’ve created a new informational flyer which you are free to print out and post around town, or simply use on your MySpace pages or personal websites (or anywhere else you see fit). Check it out here and get the word out! After all, you didn’t come all this way just to have another Team buy out the theater and seize all the votes to themselves, did you?

Judge

P21 ON THE RADIO – THIS SATURDAY!

Susan Lewis of WRTI 90.1FM in Philadelphia is now completing the radio segment on Project Twenty1 that she began last weekend at the Launch Event. The segment will air as part of the show “Creatively Speaking” this Saturday between 11:00 and 11:30am EST. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, be sure to tune in, especially if you are one of the Teams Ms. Lewis interviewed at the Launch Event, to hear your sexy voices sent out across the airwaves. If you’re NOT in the area, tune in to the live feed on their website: www.wrti.org, available worldwide. If you’ve spoken to Ms. Lewis, know that there is still more to come, and she still wants to feature one of our Teams in more detail in a future story. She wants to hear from all of you, and the sooner the better!

FINAL NOTE

We’re sure you’re all deeply entrenched in your filmmaking right now, so we’re done bothering you. We are highly excited to see your films, especially after meeting so many of you last weekend. We’re happy to promote you in any way we can, so keep us informed and we promise we’ll do the same! Don’t forget, we’ll happily take ANY footage you want to provide to us for use on our DVD, so keep your behind-the-scenes camera people busy! See you on the 2nd!
