    Bomb The System

    Discussion started by Hermdog - Apr 28, 2005

    Here is the email:

    Hi,
    >
    I'm helping Palm Pictures promote their new feature film BOMB THE
    SYSTEM which opens in theaters on May 27. BOMB THE SYSTEM tells the story of Blest and his crew of young NYC graffiti artists who take on the NYPD's Vandalism Squad. I found your site while doing some web research on graffiti fans, and I thought you might like to help promote the film by posting our link, banner, or poster to your page. For more information on the film, please visit www.bombthesystem.com.

    Let me know and thanks,

    Hamish B***y

    I visited the site and the movie is legit...but I'm torn. Is this guy trying to exploit my position as a webmaster? Are they exploiting the genre? Any real writers in this movie?

    email him back and ask if there are any "real" writers in it, any acutal bombing, etc. if not, ask for some cashmoney



    *not necessarily cashmoney, but money.

    Ask for money. I read about this in the IFC magazine, it sounds really stupid, but it won a bunch of awards at festivals.



    Probably the Most Stupid Film award.

    man i saw the preveiw for this shit a year ago. looks like shit, looks way to depressing to be a film about graffiti, if i ever made a movie about graffiti, it would be pure comedy.

    Ask for some kind of compensation. I think dude is trying to get over on you and get free advertising.

    I would assume most people involved in and around graffiti will hear about this movie through other avenues. So you might as well try to get some commpensation if you are to advertise for the film.

    Okay,

    I replied stating that I average 2,000+ visits per month. And I stated that my core viewers are from all over the United States and Canada. I stated that fair compensation is needed to reach their "core audience." I'll post any replies I get...

    its amazing how many people still havent figured out that this doesnt mean a thing. (not you fermentor...just in general)

    odds are good if you make any film about something other than trust funds, blazers over shitty tshirts or acting like a pretentious bitch with no taste (ie: things these people arent familiar with) they will give it some type of award. these people are irrelivant....


    charge these idiots just for the simple fact theyre trying to bite the hand that feeds them.....
