Would just like to give all of you a little more info. on how we'll be handling the Director's Cut Drive ...
By the way, letters ARE trickling in, but we REALLY hope to have a huge amount of them by the time Nov. 15 rolls around.
Your letters are NEEDED to show a representative sample of the VOLUME of "fans" there really are out there. Your letters will represent the EMOTION. We will include a business-like letter as the cover letter to the whole package in which we'll go into the statistics, as we see them. Your letters will go a long way towards making our point. We'll also point out the shear number of visitors we receive (now well over 500 per day) ESPECIALLY after showings of LOTM on TV which often doubles or triples or even QUADRUPLES the numbers. So, people WATCH, they LIKE, and, to Fox, we hope that translates to, they BUY. The years have rolled on, and STILL we're here. We hope that counts for something!
Our word on all of this will go SO much further if we've got your support, and the only way Fox will know we've got it is to present them with your letters. So, GO FOR IT!!!! Send 'em on! We will also send some kind of report to Michael Mann so that he knows what is going on ... this may or may not include copies of your letters. In this way, perhaps he can lend any influence he may have on the matter.
We know it's all a long shot, but it's the only shot we have. The fact that Forward Pass is supportive is probably a good sign. We can only try and hope that we WILL have an impact. Again, that's where the numbers become important ... and THAT'S where all of you come in!
