I need your help.
August 31, 2018, my new documentary American Circumcision releases on video.
This is the definitive film on the modern circumcision debate. It creates a deep lasting emotional impact that I have seen transform audiences across the country. It includes both sides of the debate, deep factual research, and moving personal stories, making it difficult to dismiss.
We have an opportunity to propel this issue into the mainstream and use this film to reach a tipping point, but I need your help.
Publications are most likely to cover about a film during it’s release. A year from now this won’t be “news” anymore, which means we need to reach as many places with this film as possible during the August to September window around the film release.
You know I have given everything for this film. I’ve put six years of work into it. I’ve risked money and reputation. I’ve traveled across the country speaking about it. I’ve appeared in press, podcasts, and shows. Together, we have taken this film from a crowd-funding campaign, to an award-winner that has screened across the country and on multiple college campuses.
However, there is a limit to my individual time and energy, which is why I need your help. As a group, you can reach far more people than I ever could working alone. The power of ‘me’ is nothing compared to the power of ‘we.’ The difference between me making a statement, and you advocating for this film is enormous, which is why I need your help contacting those with influence and audiences and asking them to cover American Circumcision.
There is a lot of competition for people’s attention. The amount of media-noise makes any publicity effort challenging. Many worthwhile projects never receive the attention they deserve. To be heard, we will need to be prolific and persistent.
However, we have the most powerful and sophisticated media at our fingertips in the history of the world. YOU can make a difference. For the first time ever, we can directly contact creators and publishers, and share our content on the platforms that matter.
I am asking for your support, because I know this matters to you. I have traveled across the country and heard your stories. I have seen people cry at multiple screenings. I know how much this issue matters. The people I have met are capable of accomplishing great things, especially when they work together.
Please, contact as many places as you can – blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels, social media influencers, large pages, news outlets, etc. – and ask them to cover American Circumcision. Share our film and our message so that this issue reaches many people as possible.
Every action you take during this period will be leveraged by the power of the film, and the combined effort of all who share our intention. Now is the time to make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
