Another highly effective way to attract both media and public attention is to schedule a speaking engagement with special film-related guests. With the popularity of “making of” features on DVDs, more and more people are curious about how these films are actually made. And of course, there’s still a certain cachet to having a film director present. In regard to Mysteries of the Great Lakes, your options include Director/Producer, David Lickley and biologist, Ron Bruch.
Invite local school groups to attend an afternoon presentation, and the public for an evening session. Presentations would include a slideshow (PowerPoint) featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, film clips, as well as a chance for the audience to ask questions.
Guest speakers also work well at gala events and local premieres. A post-screening question & answer session is always appreciated, and a reception immediately following the local premiere is another fun way to build excitement around a film.
