Get press for Iron Sky teaserThis task is closed
Everybody! Iron Sky teaser was a huge success on the Internet and internationally on press as well! Your contributions were awesome, thank you so much! We are closing to 1 million views on the teaser on different channels on Internet, so I could very well say: mission accomplished!
I just spent the past few hours writing personal emails to all the press people I know, and a few I don't know.
Please think of the sites that you read your news from, find the "contact" button and send them an email about the Iron Sky teaser.
Then, please post a "shot" on this task, saying what web site you posted to, so we can not hit the same site too much.
To make it easier for you to write something, here is an excerpt from my standard message (which I customize for each site, though, depending on what they're interested in)
"In 1945 the Nazis fled to the moon. It's 2018, and now they're coming back"
What makes this interesting is that it's the 2nd film by the people who made "Star Wreck" (http://starwreck.com/), which is the most successful feature-length Internet-distributed film of all time. Star Wreck was made by 3000 people, has been downloaded 8 million times, is under a CC by-nd-nc license, and made good money both through DVD sales, and through an eventual deal with Universal.
Here's the list of web sites that I've contacted today:
This task is closed.
Is a late news but on 17 May 2008 the most important science fiction portal in Italy (it appear also in the Italian Google news list as information feeder) cover Iron Sky putting also in the news the teaser from YouTube.
Can I translate the text and submit it to my contacts working for magazines in Italy, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands? They do not have an international coverage... but every drop together makes the ocean? Eventually if necessary I can translate whole articles or find someone to do it more professionally....
Also I know people working for Star Trek fanzines who would probably be very happy to publish an extended article (well ok, one page or two I think) on Star Wrek with mention to Iron Sky. Also good? :)
