We’ve just been offered a full page of advertising space in the Hollywood Reporter (28th June) for $2550, which is about half their usual rate. Well, I say “offered” – I think digitalred93 took them out to the woodshed with the 2x4…

Anyway, we’re going to take them up on it, which means not only do we have to raise less money to pay for the ad, but we can hopefully raise more funds for Tipitina’s Foundation, as we’ll be sending any surplus raised directly to them.

Also, it’ll be a bigger ad – a full page as opposed to a half, so all in all, it’s a great deal!

Those of you who have already contributed to the ad. fund should have been contacted by e-mail to make sure you’re happy with this change. If not, you’ll get your money back – just let us know.

Any questions or concerns – please e-mail us at askthanks2studio60@googlemail.com.

ETA - GOOD NEWS! TOMMY SCHLAMME HAS APPROVED THE AD - so we'll be able to let you see it very soon!

(and coloneljack is still hyperventilating!)

That's amazingly good news. Three cheers for the intrepids!

of course this does mean that a whole swag of Hollywood Reporters will need to be purhcased and sent overseas right :D

Terrific news!! You know, that was probably what we needed all along - Diana with a 2X4...

(and coloneljack is still hyperventilating!)

Is she hyperventilating over the ad or the Tommy Schlamme interaction, because I gotta tell ya, the latter would probably do it for me!

I'm telling you, I've only just recovered from the news about Tommy. I think it blew my internet connection!
kayla7509 on June 14th, 2007 09:42 pm (UTC)
I'm shocked that you have the ability to type!! I think I'd sit comatose for at least 24 hours!!
caz: matt & danny officecaz963 on June 14th, 2007 09:49 pm (UTC)
Tommy, definitely! :)

I wrote the minimal amount of copy, but I'm trying not to think about that!
kayla7509 on June 14th, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
That is really cool...

Wow!!! That is so much good news in one little post. Now if I only knew how to procure a copy og the Hollywood Reporter in Atlanta.
italkfast on June 14th, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC)
Sorry - OT I know, but I am from Atlanta too, and I think you can get it at Barnes and Noble.

There's been enough requests that I'll call back to THR tomorrow to see about how everyone can order a copy. :-)
?elsceetaria on June 15th, 2007 01:40 am (UTC)
Awesome! Thank you in advance. Everything all you coordinating people are doing is AMAZING!

White roses, shurely!

Out of interest is it going to be text based or what? I don't know what made me just think of any copyright issues... but I am assuming you cleverclogs have taken that into consideration?
Diana Dru Botsford: tipitina's foundationdigitalred93 on June 14th, 2007 10:12 pm (UTC)
Don't worry about copyright issues - we're talking with WB now... And they really are good guys!
caz: DJ roofcaz963 on June 14th, 2007 10:13 pm (UTC)
All done - why do you think Tommy has approved it? :)
Fenny: Wrath of CJhooloovoo_42 on June 14th, 2007 10:15 pm (UTC)
Have you ever seen digitalred93 with a piece of 2x4 in her hand. I certainly wouldn't argue with her ;-)
ozzyols: determinedozzyols on June 14th, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
Heee... Yeah I kinda CAN imagine her. Sweet As!
ozzyols: chucky V2ozzyols on June 14th, 2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
Sweet As!

Oi... Did I just say that... it's far too early in the morning for me!
ozzyols: behind the scenesozzyols on June 14th, 2007 10:22 pm (UTC)
This is really good news... now if that 2x4 could have only convinced them to do other things... oh well... Kay Sarah and all that ;)
Sally: CloseUpMatthewallie83 on June 14th, 2007 11:29 pm (UTC)
I think that is excellent, I will be donating again... and getting my hands on a copy of the hollywood reporter from that day hehe :)
Sally: MarrietAtLastallie83 on June 14th, 2007 11:31 pm (UTC)
I forgot to say OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG about TOMMY SCHLAMME approving the ad.... OMG OMG OMG OMG :)

You girls are AWESOME!
charlottedberry on June 15th, 2007 12:53 am (UTC)
Wow, that is good news!

I thought I wouldn't be able to make the donation because I'm from Brazil, but it all worked out. I was saving the dollars to travel, but oh well, it is for a good cause. An amazing cause, to be fair.
I was wondering if any of you guys would be willing to send me a copy of the paper when the ad comes out... I would really like to hold this one in my hands, but I think there's no where I can buy it here. I could send you the money for the mail service and everything.

Thanks again for all the hard work! You all rock! :D
Diana Dru Botsford: tipitina's foundationdigitalred93 on June 15th, 2007 01:43 am (UTC)
Charlotte - email me at dianab AT elysiumwebs.com - we'll figure something out!
nowhere man: Matt + Toby OTPmaccaj on June 15th, 2007 03:10 am (UTC)
amazing work, guys. Donated what I could - sorry it isn't more.
carefree84 on June 15th, 2007 04:06 am (UTC)
Great job
All I can say is thank you so much for all your efforts. My contribution may not have been the greatest (20 bucks) but I know it will do some good.

"show me something..."

Re: Great job
Everytime I even think about this I get so full of "squee" you wouldn't believe it. Okay I need details, I'm assuming it wasn't just 'hey Tommy can we do an ad?' 'yeah sure.' Play by play please! :) Tell Warner Bros. I'm gonna go see Harry Potter an extra time in their honor--I'd be doing it anyway but don't tell them that part ;).

Either I'm spacing out or I haven't seen where to see how much we've raised. Where is it we keep track? I know it's early but I was curious for the future.
missingmoya on June 15th, 2007 05:46 am (UTC)
Nevermind! Found it!
Sally: hotphotoshoot2allie83 on June 15th, 2007 07:28 pm (UTC)
How did you even know how to contact WB and Tommy? eeeeeeek xxx
