Hello Ancient Lighters!!
Our first post of the year! We should have done it a few weeks ago, but there were some things we need it to take care first!
So, the tittle of our post for today says it all. We continue in our quest to reach Ellen Degeneres. We think that now that we’re getting close to complete post-production (over the next 2 – 3 months) and we start submitting to Film Festivals, we have more chances of actually achieve one of out biggest goals: be invited to talk about the movie with Ellen!
But why is so important for us that Ellen takes interest in our project? Well, first of all, she was a big inspiration to our Director and Producer Sandra when she decided to pursue a career in the Entertainment Industry. Secondly, our project has a strong message about accepting and loving yourself and being kind to one another, things that Ellen encourages. Plus, we’re an anti-bullying and pro LGBT project. We know that if….scratch that, we know that WHEN we’re featured in her show, we’ll have more chances to reach people and spread our message!!
The story is very close to Sandra (having struggled with some of the topics featured in the movie) and the whole cast and crew did an amazing job to complete and bring the project to live.
We want to let people (specially teens) who’re struggling with bullying and/or self-harm, that they’re not alone and that things eventually improve…. and get better!
During the past months, some of our actors and crew got together to record a message for her, message that you can watch here:
And if you want to show us some love and support, help us by watching, sharing and spreading word about our message to Ellen and our project.
Thank you so much fro reading our little blog, for supporting our project and for being with us during our journey!!
