Filming Being begins today ! Looking forward to this independent film which I hope makes it to theaters. I prefer the theater experience for most films as I feel it draws the audience in more. Farscape and X Files are the two shows that drew me in so that I forgot about the laundry and vacuuming that surrounded me! That said this story intrigues me so I will watch no matter the format and likely would even if Ben wasn’t in it.
To all participating in the hashtag-a-thons keep it up!! Each days we see some new names! Don’t do social media? Go old school look up email addresses or physical addresses of the streaming companies and send your wish for more Farscape. Give them demographics and mention if you are a subscriber or would become one. Same with the various blogs who all seemed excited that James Gunn mentioned Farscape but have not followed that up with a look back. I have found many of these writers prefer social media contact so good luck and post your successes! I have sent some emails and have had no luck but our online presence is still just a tiny blip. There are Facebook groups with 3000 members yet only a handful posting if that. I realize many people just check pages now and then and it doesn’t reflect what kind of fan they are BUT it does send a message that yea people say they want more but where is the interest? All of you that say you don’t see why there is no kickstarter and you would donate I have to wonder if you really would since it is more effort than posting or emailing. For me this provides a great distraction from all the negative news —- take an hour now and then and think about Farscape and the emotions and positive moments either alone or with fellow fans. The social media campaigns are what they look at —- Everwood, Jersey Shore response to articles or blurbs motivated fans.
