NEW YORK, March 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Billion Entrepreneurs is now halfway through their global crowd funding campaign, and director Jimmy Newson has been giving a shout-out thank you to every contributor for his 14-Day Global Touch Crusade. The online funding campaign is at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/abethemovie.
The funding raised so far has allowed ABE to develop the movie and complete filming, with more than 120 hours of film already in the can. Now in the final stage, funds are necessary to complete post-production, secure distribution, marketing and promotion, and submission to film festivals. Post-production for the film includes editing, transcribing, music composition, graphic design, animation, sound editing and color correction. Regarding marketing and promotions, an aggressive campaign is planned to spread the message worldwide, through various forms of distribution, community outreach, screening tours and a festival run.
A Billion Entrepreneurs has developed key relationships, including promotional support and distribution with Studio Movie Grill. This theater chain has fully endorsed the movie, and has the trailer showing on 158 screens in 7 states, in order to help promote the movie and show it when officially released. "Studio Movie Grill (SMG) is excited to support the efforts of filmmakers and entrepreneurs alike. SMG exists to Open Hearts and Minds To Our Shared Stories, so what better way than to reach out to multiple stakeholders to encourage everyone's entrepreneurial spirit, and to share the stories of those already on the journey through this documentary," shared Brian Schultz, Founder/CEO of Studio Movie Grill. Additionally, the organization is aligned with groups that are strong supporters of entrepreneurship such as Entrepreneurs Organization and Entrepreneurs For North Texas. The film is currently on track to be completed and ready for release in the fall of 2014.
