As you may know, yesterday saw the recording of an exclusive new podcast for all you Millennium fans courtesy of James, Troy and BacktoFrankBlack.com but aside from the fun and the folics this campaign does have a mandate and that is where you come in. One question we get asked a lot is “what can I do to help bring Frank and Millennium back?”
So here are some simple tips as to how you can help, kind wonderful Millennium fans that you are!
We mention this quite a lot – letters are oh-so-important. A campaign can succeed on letters. They demonstrate genuine consumer support. An internet petition is great (and yes we do have one, but let’s stick to letters for now), but anyone can spend sixty seconds clicking a link and adding a name. If you can imagine being in the position of deciding on what multi-million dollar project you are going to green-light, would you put faith solely on a net petition? No. It may help give you an idea of interest in a show, but letters on a desk shows someone who has written, printed, posted their support – that’s a far bigger commitment.
We don’t want to harass you into buying DVDs, but if you are looking at a way to support backtoFrankBlack you can’t go wrong with purchasing the DVDs – simply because alongside letters, a display of consumer power really turns industry heads. If the DVDs sell well, it shows people don’t just like the show, they’ll pay for it. Money – believe it or not – goes a long way in the entertainment industry my sweethearts. Click one of the links on this site to go and purchase from amazon.com, or pick your own method of purchase!
Doesn’t really matter where, as you long as you support Millennium by buying Millennium – and you can get some pretty good deals on the DVD sets as well. If you don’t live in the States, we recommend maybe looking at places closer to home that would incur delivery, for instance, amazon.co.uk or play.com for British followers. Look for the bargains!
We must confess, through this busy year the core BTFB team haven’t headed out to the horror/sci-fi cons, but again, this is something we’d love to see people do: going to conventions and chatting about Millennium. Thanks to M.R. Sellars and Benjamin J. Szumskyj we know hundreds of flyers have already been distributed amongst convention goers! If you fancy doing the same don’t be afraid to take flyers with you to a convention or merely wag that tongue and tell people what’s going on. Tell them about BacktoFrankBlack, tell them how Lance is keen to come back in the roll. And of course, let us know you’re doing it! The more feedback we get back from you guys, the more we can use to promote ourselves! Show us you are spreading the word at the cons, and we can then tell industry/media contacts that is what you merry people are doing!
If you meet any of the cast and crew from Millennium, send us a picture of you with those talented people and we’ll post it here!
Lance is very keen to see a Millennium theme run at a con – and willing to help trying and pull some support from the cast and crew! If we knew you people were interested, your feedback might make it happen. It’s just talk at the moment, but who knows – if we get the interest the idea might sell!
