And we’re live!
The film has only been online for exactly two weeks now, with a website that doesn’t look like complete garbage. (Sorry web designers out there if it’s an eyesore). On November 20th, we got some early attention from an article by Christina Ng, from ABC news, that spoke about the site, and gave it some great exposure. (http://abcn.ws/UD5y1h)
Two days later, on Thanksgiving, the film was added as a staff pick on Vimeo, and the Vimeo community has been uh-mazing in spreading the word, with almost 100,000 views so far.
That Sunday, Benjaman did an AMA on Reddit (links above in Menu), and I made the Whitehouse.gov petition active. Doing the AMA gave us a volcanic, immediate response, and within 24 hours the petition got 6,000 signatures.
On another interesting note, two people on reddit believed they had encountered Benjaman working at a Waffle House in Georgia prior to the accident. I’m trying desperately to get into further contact with these people, and no developments have gone any further. But I can’t wait to see where that goes.
I’ll keep you posted as to what else happens, be it with the petition, or with any upcoming clues.
