Welcome to "The Shadow of the Bear" movie blog!

We are an independant young adult-run production based in the U.S. Midwest. The film has been in pre-production since summer 2008, and wrapped up filming on August 26th, 2010.

We premiered the project on June 23rd, 2011 at the St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis, MN to a delighted audience of over 100 viewers.

$250 Milestone Reward Post!

Thanks to some generous donations, we've crossed the $250 mark and are well on our way to $300!!! We just need $113 in order to be able to purchase our software! (although more than that would be good to cover tax and shipping so that I don't have to pull the extra out of my tiny bank account). Can we hit that before Thanksgiving? If so, we could have a trailer by Christmas!

Anyhow, it's time for the $250 reward post!

For THREE special fans there will be a a SOTB Mini-Poster! I will only be making three copies of this poster, so now is your ONLY chance to get one of them!

The fans will be selected by RANDOM DRAWING on November 20th.

To enter the drawing, send an e-mail with the subject line "Mini Poster Drawing" to theshadowofthebear [at] ymail [dot] com. Include your first name and last initial in the body text. Winners will get a reply on November 20th that will ask for their mailing address so that we can know where to ship the posters.

You are only allowed to enter ONE time --- UNLESS you make a donation between now and then of at least $5. If you do make a donation, you will be allowed to enter the drawing an extra time for each extra $5 you donate. The name on the donation must match the name on the drawing entry, and when making the multiple entries you should indicate that you donated so we know it wasn't just an e-mail fluke.

All e-mails must be submitted by midnight on November 19th!

We will announce the winners on November 20th.

Will all three posters be signed? In the "Whats and Whys of the Fundraiser" the $250 post was for one signed poster. Now that it's changed to three (THANK YOU!) will the extra two also be signed? And if so, by whom?
I can't wait till next year when I see this movie! I'm so excited!
Our Lady bless you!

If one is signed, the others will be. I don't know how many actors/crew I'll be able to track down, but I'll do my best.

Do we need to write anything else in the body txt or not?

I can't wait for the movie to come out!

Question: What if a sibling wants to try for a poster too but doesn't have their own email address? Is okay if they submit using my email, but have their name listed?

Elenatintil said...

I'm going to have to say one entry per e-mail address (except with donations). Otherwise I really can't keep track of who is real and who might be cheating. Sorry!

Elenatintil said...

P.s. Is there a parental e-mail address your sibling could use?

Scarlet said...

Yes, but my mom doesn't like it when he uses hers. I can ask though. thanks! :)
