how far will go?

February 8, 2011

farwillgoSurprisingly, this film didn’t do so well!
In fact, it went pretty far out of sight, pretty quickly 😀
But I love how they confidently splashed the ad on BEST buses and such. Sigh. It may have been a really good film, but I didn’t see it because of the grammar. I’m hoping the people who skipped “Toss” were just spoilt for choice, not begrudging of the advertising (read: grammar nazis) 😉
The other one currently out that nothing on earth would induce me to see is titled “Angel”…newcomer actors, directorial debut, the works – horridly unexpressive advertising.
Social media folks, what can indie/low budget films do to even stand a chance (besides hiring a good copy editor)?

  1. Good eye! I wonder, though, if it might be the most subversive conspiracy to draw attention to the intentional sins of omission and such obvious grammar errors that is the advertising measure employed here?

    I don’t know, just wondering… and giving them the benefit of the doubt!
