I'm emailing you representing 4Reelz, LLC, a new start-up film and animation production company based in Los Angeles.
Our team (Larry Longstreth and animator Jacob Drake in particular) has created award winning online short films and cartoons that have gained literally millions of viewers. Some of our past works were "Batman's Gonna Get Shot in the Face" (4th on Filmthreat's) list of best shorts of 2006), "The Wimp Whose Woman Was a Werewolf" (a live-action short featuring the famous Lloyd Kaufman and featuring a 9 foot werewolf created by "Chronicles of Narnia" fx man Paul Molnar), and "The Greatest Fan Film of All Time" (an animated epic featuring the voicework of Our Lady Peace lead singer Raine Maida, WWE/TNA wrestler Stevie Richards, and many others).
What we're trying to do now is to make the leap from "internet fame" to legitimate success. We're now working on two projects that are much bigger than anything we've done before. Larry himself is working under the guidance of Mr. Mark Ordesky, producer of films such as "Lord of the Rings", "The Golden Compass", and the upcoming film: "Chariots of the Gods". Mark has offered his services as a consultant to our company and also financially, as an investor into our current animated TV pilot: "Four Tanks and a Healer", an Adult-Swim style cartoon that takes place inside a roleplaying fantasy video game. We're also currently in production on a live-action feature film comedy titled "The Long, Slow Death of a Twenty-Something", which is about 2/3 of the way through it's production in North East Ohio.
The reason I'm contacting you is because we are now at a stage where our new projects are going to be done very soon. Any publicity we can get is a "must" and will greatly help us with gaining momentum and taking these works to the next stage: distribution. We've been interviewed by newspapers or fan sites before and we've even had articles written about us, but now we're actually pursuing the publicity. If you guys would be interested in helping us, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
