We're very excited to announce that a 30-minute sample of our Lyme documentary, UNDER OUR SKIN, has put us in the running for the prestigious IFP ``Award for Socially Conscious Documentaries.'' In addition, we were awarded a screening slot at IFP Market, which will place the rough cut of our film in front of high-level broadcasters and distributors in September.
http://www.lymediseasefilm.com

Interest in the film has been high, with packed fundraising screenings in five cities; a pitch meeting with HBO; and interviews with national publications such as The Washington Post, The Scientist, and Forbes (...well, we tried). And with President Bush's announcement that he's been treated for Lyme, and Michael Moore's SICKO film making health care an election issue, we feel the time is right for this film.

We're now in the homestretch for completing our rough cut for Sundance Festival submission, and we'd like to call on the Lyme disease community to help us out in this final sprint. Even if you're not able to financially assist us, please help us spread the word among your friends, family, and influencers, so we can create a groundswell of excitement for our upcoming screenings. (We've placed our 5-minute film trailer back on our main website, so that you can easily forward it via email.)

And thanks again for all your support and stories!!

kriskraft,

This is really wonderful news; I've continued to tell friends, neighbors, doctors and colleagues about your extraordinary film, and I can't wait to hear what ultimately happens in all your negotiations and with your screenings.

In the meantime, I'm glad you've got the trailer back on the site. In itself, it's a powerful introduction to the devastation Lyme can cause. Every time I see it, it makes me cry.

Thanks to you and your team for your heartfelt, accurate and wonderful work!

Andie

Kris,
This is great news - have been following the evolution of the film and I am so impressed with it. Congrats on the IFP nomination. Will keep my fingers crossed that it gets into Sundance, too - that would be awesome.

Are you still in need of donations? Will get the word out as much as possible.

Thanks,
Nancy

The link to this film is no longer working - it goes to a standard site that indicates the domain name payment didn't get made (hubby is a webmaster, which is why I suspect this).

Does anyone know what has happened? Is the film still getting worked on? Has the company folded?

BettyG figured it out! Looks like they are in the process of changing their website address from .COM to .ORG.

The main site page now works at:

http://www.openeyepictures.org/underourskin

As of this moment, all the links on that page are broken (still using the .COM version). To get into those pages, simply click them, then type ".ORG" over the ".COM" portion of the URL.

The other URL they used to use:
www.lymediseasefilm.org
does not exist at all any more.

Hopefully they will get this all fixed soon. This is such a terribly important film.

At Betty G's wise suggestion, I'm posting this here (was also posted in "Under Our Skin Release...soon I hope" in General Support)

I asked Andy Abrahams Wilson (Executive Director/Senior Producer) about the film site not working yesterday (December 19, 2007), which URL to use to promote the film, when the film will be released, and about donating. Here is what he said:

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for your concern. Everything's up and running--it was just a small administrative glitch that was fixed.

To answer your questions:

1. For now use www.lymediseasefilm.com (Though we'll probably have a dedicated site with a different name when the film is released. No matter what, the old URL will link to the new one.)

2. Never too late to donate. Thank you!

3. The film will be completed March 1st and released some how and somewhere soon after that. Join our email list and we'll keep you informed.

Yay for good news!

cold feet, i can answer one question only.

director, andy wilson's sister has lyme; that's why he's doing lyme documentary.


they have NO idea on rest of your questions. go to their site; i believe you can sign up THERE FOR UPDATES as they occur.

otherwise, kris kraft updates us here also as they occur! [Wink] hoped that helped.

i'm disappointed in the HIGH PRICES for tickets especially for us LYMIES....

for the rich celebrities; it's a drop in the bucket; just my opinion...

$40 - $100 per person [Frown]

Betty,

Sorry you were disappointed in the cost. I guess I was expecting it, since anytime you are involved in a cause for a charity, it end up being part donation in the cost of tickets.

I did go ahead and buy two tickets. Anyone else out there also planning to make the trip? Also, does anyone know how many this particular venue holds?

This is a hard price for

me too Betty especially

since I have been out of

work since November. My

question is that my best

friend and I are doing

everything from dog

walking to babysitting

(I am just still too

sick to hold a normal

job and not get fired)-

And I was wondering if

anyone was kind enough

to open their home in

the New York area for a

few days to let two

young girls stay so we

can attend! I just don't
think we will raise

enough to get a hotel

with the price of gas

and my delicate state.

Thank you all!

I'm sorry about the high price for this sneak preview, but I promise it'll be shown in less expensive venues in the near future. Keep checking our website for updates on film festivals.
