I think we need to work out the press release and artwork first.  We can use that regardless of where we send it.  Here is the link to where we can get it on the big board: https://ireach.prnewswire.com/Orders/price-options.aspx  look at the WebReach Plus option.  I think one of us should lead the charge of talking with them and getting the details.  I would ask my PR friend for more help but I hate talking someone into doing their day job after hours.


In regard to artwork to add to the Press Release, I love the shot of the three Greys with "Midnight In The Desert with Art Bell" across the image on Jaz's new trailer. 


Jaz The Munda, my buddy, my pal, can I grab a snip of that & use it for this?  You give the permission, I will do the rest.  ???


If anyone has a better idea for artwork, don't be shy.

I'm just playing pragmatist & asking questions.  I'm not trying to knock the idea because I think it's a really great one!
I think we should get more details, ask a few questions and then decide. I'll contribute $ regardless.

 Sure, the time square thing is cool! It might  be worth the 400 bucks in and of itself just to see the picture.
Which, BTW, can be posted all over social sites/forums  by itself!  Hey, now that's an idea!!

I just convinced myself this is a good idea just for the Time Square picture/vid with a giant  "ArtBell returns for MITD" scrolling across the screen!
Any additional attention we get from the newswire press release is a bonus.

I will definitely find out what we get before we put a single dollar down.  What are your thoughts on the artwork we should use, Eddie?

Make double sure we have the legal rights to use that image (or any image) for a wide spread press release advertising campaign .
Jaz? are there any restrictions for the images you used in your vid?
When you bought the animation does it have any copywrite issues for still image/print  advertising in the USA?   
Just trying to cover all the bases.

It's Mission Critical to be sure the image is copyright free and safe to use.  Thank you Eddie.

I'm not sure. I think legally speaking my purchase allows me to use it once but if that image was stolen and then used by someone else I can't be held accountable. I think it will be fine to use.

Why do you hate Art Bell?

Kick ass, Jaz!  If no one objects, I'd like to use this along with the Press Release.  As I have said, if someone has a better suggestion, feel free to speak up; I won't bite.

See my  post above ^^^

Whatever image you choose it should be eye grabbing and representative of Art's shows. 
I was thinking about the pic of a nighttime landscape in the desert with brilliant stars above, but this might be to boring, although very appropriate.
We'd be better served by using something which is intriguing & provocative

UFO mother ship closing in on earth - see jaz trailer
Aliens/ greys - see jaz trailer
Goatsie/horsenporn   -  see Jaz's collection

As long as it's not boring, and easily forgettable. many images the blitzers have posted, or some pics on art's site will work fine in this regard.

I love it!
I'd suggest to redo the text. In this image the text is too difficult to see. It fades into the backdrop, especially when viewed in a small format thumbnail.
It needs to pop, baby, POP!
A text shadow , bold the text, bigger and fatter font, A dark highligh around the text. Something to make it stand out more. the aliens are cool but  they aren;t the focus. we need to make sure ppl can read the message  even if they are almost blind.

I can help with this is you need me to. Let me know.

Agreed.  It may need some tweaking, but dig the image.  How much trouble would it be to get the text to pop Eddie?

It's a beautiful image man.

I thought about desert landscapes too, but sadly, too boring.  I am going to have to watch all of Jaz's trailers to see if there's a better image than the aliens... but I love the aliens.  Do with that what you will pervs.   :P

I have reached the level of master at avoidance, so if you won't tell I won't ask and we can pretend it didn't happen.


the picture?  that happened.  I had to pay the photographer 2x his normal rate to do that photo shoot with me and my friend there.  Not sure how it got into Jaz's collection but I guess he has a knack for finding fine art.

Not much trouble. maybe a half hour or less.
I'd need a clean copy (without text) of the image you want to use.

I can get you a screen shot of the aliens without the text and you can input whatever text you like.

Would that help?

Thank you.  I'm just learning how to use twitter again, it looks much different than a few years ago.  Hitting buttons to see what happens.

I don't really understand Twitter. I just kind of have my blog and Instagram autopost to it. Occasionally I'm notified that something has happened, but that's about it.

If I may inquire, as there has been much listed, can we establish a schedule for the Blitz?

1. July 4
2. July 5
3. July 6
4. and so on...

From what I can see most large companies took off today, Friday, and will be back to work on Monday.
