Thank you all for your continued support of “After the Wedding!”
With only 12 days left on our campaign, and only 23% funded, it looks like we may not reach our fundraising goal. But we’re not going down without a fight.
So this week, we would like to ask for your help…
Can you help us get #ATWFilm trending on Twitter this week?
We feel very blessed to have received support from our friends and family so far, but if our campaign is to reach its goal next Saturday (5/26) then we really need to get the support of two very important communities – Female Bloggers and the Latino Community.
As female bloggers ourselves (http://dreamingofpalmtrees.blogspot.com), we are hoping the female blogging community will show their support, this week, of a feature film dramedy about the first year of marriage. Not only is it a unique love story, but it’s being produced and directed by women – Go Girl Power!
The next group we would really like to reach is the Latino Community. Being of Guatemalan-descent ourselves, it is important for us to introduce more minority roles, which is why our film consists primarily of a Latino cast. While minorities have made excellent strides in the entertainment industry, we still only make up a relatively small percent in front of and behind the camera.
Below are lists of prominent members of the Female Blogging community, and the Latino community. Please let them know about this film. We can’t do this alone. By reaching out to them, as a community (and by talking about #ATWFilm amongst ourselves), let’s see if we can get #ATWFilm trending on Twitter this week. And don’t forget, along with our hashtag please include our Kickstarter link. Either http://kck.st/HPRSfW or www.aftertheweddingkickstarter.com. Thank you so much for your help!
Interacting with any of these individuals, and mentioning #ATWFilm with our link, will help bring great awareness to “After the Wedding.”

Something important to also keep in mind when tweeting is to be sure to mention this is a campaign to MAKE a movie - not to support one that’s already been completed. That way people aren’t disappointed when they click on our Kickstarter link.
So you could say something like: @EvaLongoria Check out #ATWFilm, an indie being made by Latinas and crowdfunded by the community, great project http://kck.st/HPRSfW
Here are a couple more great examples on how you can tweet about “After the Wedding.”
