More hearty thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s Facebook contest. One of the major challenges of independent films (especially shorts) is getting the word out about them. So we truly appreciate everyone who helps us spread the word about Saying Goodbye.
Now on to the winner . . . Congratulations Danielle Pritchard!! We’ll contact you via Facebook about delivering your Blockbuster gift card.
So what exciting contest do we have planned for the third week of our trailer celebration? This time it’s all about creativity.
First a question for you: what do the following phrases have in common?
- In space, no one can hear you scream.
- Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…
- Love means never having to say you’re sorry
- They’re here…
These four phrases are examples of famous movie taglines (Alien, Jaws 2, Love Story, Poltergeist). A tagline is a catchy and enticing phrase to sum up the premise, tone, and/or theme of a movie. Most movies have one, but only a few are so memorable they become a part of pop culture.
The current tagline for Saying Goodbye is “The cat foretold their deaths… yet taught them all about living.” And while we really like it, we’re not sure it has that special something that will make people remember it for years to come.
So your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to come up with a new tagline for Saying Goodbye. We know it’s a challenge since you haven’t seen the movie yet, but watch the trailer and read the synopsis, then create something that will wow us. Post your new tagline in the comments section below. We will choose our favorite tagline and award the author a $25 Amazon gift certificate. And if you really blow us away, we’ll make it the official tagline for the movie.
You may enter as many taglines as you want. The contest ends at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, August 22nd. Click here for all the details.
