PRESS RELEASE – MARCH 8, 2012
Assisted Suicide Comedy, A Good Day to Die, adds Director and Social Media Director to its production team
Los Angeles, CA – March 8, 2012 – Director Emily Lou joins A Good Day to Die team Andrea Shreeman (producer/writer), Gregor Collins (writer) and Bill Kelman (line producer). Fresh off of four Best Director awards from her freshman film, The Selling, Emily, who lives in Oakland, California is already putting her spin on the dark comedy.
“Something happened the moment Emily came on board, everything started to speed up,” Shreeman said.
In November 2011, the A Good Day to Die team raised over $15,000 on Kickstarter.com in development funds for the nascent project. Early cast member Cloris Leachman made appearances in two of the film’s fundraising videos.
“We had Cloris in mind from day one for the character of Lily Bauer,” Collins said. “Andrea knew Cloris from a previous project, and we felt honored that she really liked the script.”
The writing duo undeniably has a bit of social media savvy. They recently hired Andrew and Noah as the fuel behind an Interactive Social Media (ISM) strategy that even Gary Vaynerchuk would appreciate (Gary is a well known guru of “Social” who preaches the value of offensive customer service. See: @GaryVee). Collins and Shreeman hail their new ISM team as ”full of wisdom and eager to be part of something on the cutting edge.”
This month Shreeman will be traveling to the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive, Film and Music Festival in Austin, Texas armed with a recently penned business plan that outlines the DIY dream for A Good Day to Die. According to the newly-added director Lou, “Having just gone through the distribution process with my first film, I can tell you that the landscape is shifting rapidly and opportunities for independent filmmakers continue to expand. There are so many things I wish we had done with The Selling, and now I get to do them with A Good Day to Die.”
