Through the film festival circuit, we introduced Billy Mize (and often the Bakersfield Sound) to over 40 cities across the nation. We couldn’t be happier with the critical praise, festival awards and audience member reactions. While awards and praise are welcome, the best reward to a job well done is the ability to do it again. You can help us with our next projects by purchasing DVDs from www.billymizemovie.com. 70% of each DVD sale will go towards: Jayden’s Journey, The Other Side of Fear and/or The Penny Black.
Jayden’s Journey is a documentary to be shot over the course of a decade about the growth and development of Jayden Stone, a two-year-old with brain cancer who went through an innovative and controversial form of cancer treatment. The Penny Black is a docu-thriller executive produced by Oscar Winners Alex Gibney and Maureen Ryan and is currently in production. The Other Side of Fear is a documentary chronicling the outdated programs and recent innovative ideas surrounding the United States Foster Care System. You can learn more about The Other Side of Fear here: www.fostercaremovie.com.
If you’ve already purchased a DVD, but you like these projects, or know someone who might, there are other important ways you can help. The more people are aware of our projects, the better our chances are of raising the necessary funds. By spreading the word of the DVD sales to friends, or sharing our page on Facebook, or spreading word on Twitter, you’ll be giving us crucial, valuable support. Please help us reach as many people as possible!
