VOTE GONE FISHING

October 11, 2008

One of my far flung movie tangent connections — they published the movie book I bought to explain the things I didn’t know — whenever I want to figure things out, first thing I do is get a book.  Usually out of the library (the stern sounding librarian pointed out it was “The Girl Who Leapt (not Leaped) through Time”, which isn’t what the FT said, and that it was nowhere to be found in Pennsylvania.  Will begin the hunt anew on Nov. 18th. — see previous blog references if this makes no sense), but if I find the right reference book I buy it — and it often turns it to be by a British author or publisher.  So I purchased, enjoyed the cartoons and memorized parts of The Guerilla Guide Filmmakers Movie Blueprint. And ended up on the e-mail list and occasionally e-mailing Chris Jones.

So now they are trying to get their short film Gone Fishing — from the trailer, it looks beautifully shot — nominated for an Oscar and it’s up for a British Thunderclap Award and they need votes. I’ll just paste Chris’s e-mail from here.

“We need your help… Gone Fishing has been nominated for the British Thuderclap Awards, and it’s an email vote… So please, can you go to their site, here…

http://www.thunder-clap.com/ …scroll down to Gone Fishing and click on the Vote For Chris Jones button.

Alternativley, just send a blank email to vote@thunder-clap.com and add CHRIS JONES in the subject line.

This award will significantly help our chances for the Oscars, so it’s REALLY important and will only take a moment to do. Can I also ask that you email this request on to EVERYONE in your address book.

We AIM TO WIN THE OSCAR in Feb 2009, and IF YOU HELP NOW, PART OF YOU WILL ALSO BE UP ON THAT STAGE WITH US WHEN WE COLLECT THE LITTLE GOLD MAN!

Thank you from the entire team who helped make GONE FISHING a reality…
