Summer of ’67 Trailer Release

We made the decision to release the Summer of ’67 movie trailer on Facebook at midnight on New Year’s Eve. We thought it would be a fun way to promote it, but had no idea whether it would work or not. Would people take time away from their parties to stop and watch a trailer? Would people stay up long enough to see it? Once people saw it, would they like it? Honestly, as a filmmaker you never know how people will respond. All you can do is throw it out there and see if it sticks. Well, I’m happy to say, it stuck!

In four days, it’s garnered 28,000 views, 240 shares, and 264 reactions, and the numbers continue to rise. All I can say is, Wow!

We’ve now added it to YouTube. In the event that you’ve  not yet seen it, or if you just want to watch it again, here you go! Let me know in the comments what you think.

 

Summer of ’67 Trailer Release Party

It’s been a busy week in the Wilharm and Herd houses. In addition to all the fun and excitement of the holidays, we’ve been actively preparing for the world premiere of the Summer of ’67 movie trailer. It takes place on the Summer of ’67 Facebook page at the stroke of midnight so it can be the first thing you see in 2018. Leading up to the trailer release, we’ll have short videos from cast members sharing their excitement and thoughts about the trailer.

Now Casting – Summer of 67

After each movie I always say that’s it. No more movies. And I mean it.  I honestly thought Providence was our last movie. It screened in AMC theaters in L.A., Times Square, and my hometown of Destin, Florida. It exceeded our grandest expectations with countless awards and positive reviews. How could we possibly top that? Why even try?

Remember the Goal Premiere

Last night we had the privilege of attending the premiere of Remember the Goal. Cast and crew, family and friends, all came out for the big event, and since this was the first time any had seen the movie, the excitement level was understandably high. We expected a good turnout, but were excited when we found out they had to move to a bigger screen in order to accomodate the crowd. By the time the movie started, the theater was packed.

When God Exceeds Our Expectations

Our God is an awesome God!

When we first started working on Providence, we had pretty low expectations. We knew it was the story that God had called us to tell, but we thought it would be for a limited audience since it was just a simple little silent love story.

How Well Meaning Christians are Hurting Christian Filmmakers

I must admit, just a few months ago I never gave much thought to illegal downloads of music or movies. Then PROVIDENCE hit Fandango and AMC and the rest of the world discovered us. A quick online search showed up literally hundreds of listings to watch PROVIDENCE for free. We didn’t take it too seriously since we knew they didn’t actually have access to the movie and the sites were just leading to viruses or scams.
