UPCOMING YOGA FOR A CAUSE CLASS AND TEASER SCREENING
Since the big teaser party this summer (details below), we’ve been busy at work planning additional screenings and fundraising opportunities, including an upcoming event on Saturday, October 27th! Mind the Mat in Del Ray, Alexandria is graciously hosting a “Yoga for a Cause” class (the film!) and will be led by the amazing yoga instructor Olivia Sheldon.
After the class, we’ll enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres and then screen the teaser. If you missed the first screening event, love yoga, want to support the film, or any combination of the above, don’t miss this! Space is limited so be sure to sign up TODAY.
Find the details and RSVP on Eventbrite.
And if you’re interested in hosting a teaser screening event to show part of the film and raise support to complete the project, please email Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HEALTHY PRODUCTS SHOPPING GUIDE
We’re also excited to announce we are creating a Healthy Products Shopping Guide, which will feature information about ingredients of concern, safe products organized by category and additional resources for your healthy personal products journey. This guide will truly save your hours of research and fit easily in a small bag or purse for convenient in-store shopping! The booklet is available as a gift for your donation of $25 or more. Stay tuned for the official publication date!
To all of you who have given to the film already, we are SO THANKFUL for your support! We hope that you take pride in helping bring this film to life and know that this is only possible because of your generosity.
THE SUMMER TEASER PARTY WAS A SUCCESS!
This summer, we released a teaser for Pretty Ugly to unveil the first several scenes of the film. Since early spring, we were collaborating with our editor, graphic animator, music composer and sound engineer to create a work of filmic art, if we do say so ourselves!
And what is a the point of creating a cinema sample without a screening party? Our thoughts exactly. That’s why we partnered with the fantastic Take Care Shop in D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood to host a teaser release and fundraising party in mid-June.
The event came together seamlessly. The venue was beautiful, RSVPs were flooding in, we had an incredible team of generous volunteers helping, amazing food donors and prize sponsors made wonderful contributions, the sun was shining…and there was just one, small problem. Wonder Woman 2 was filming in Georgetown on THE SAME DAY. Great minds think alike, but a Hollywood film crew overtaking the exact same street the day of our party was not ideal!
Roads would be closed, traffic would be diverted, and no one fight their way through Georgetown traffic to come to our party! Panic quickly set in. Thankfully, after a few calls with Wonder Woman’s location manager, our fears quickly subsided. The roads would open back up exactly one hour before party. Phew! Wonder Woman always saves the day, JUST in time.
We had a great turnout at the party with more than 50 guests in attendance, and we received positive feedback and many thoughtful compliments about the teaser. We’re also so grateful to have raised a few thousand dollars to help take us to the next several cities for additional film shoots. In short, the event was a major success!
