Here at Sleepy Bear's we are celebrating a few things; two hour naps, our 200th post and the pursuit of dreams. Did you know Bear and I are both actors? One of our dreams is to make a living acting in worthwhile projects that build up instead of tear down. You know... the kind of movies you watch and feel better about yourself and life in general, maybe even inspired to do great things. We were lucky enough to work on just such a project and you might just be lucky enough to win your very own copy. We are giving away a copy of The Wylds to one lucky reader, so be sure to comment on this post.
The Wylds is a family film based on the ageless story, The Pilgrim's Progress. It's a fun adventure film, with treasures to be gleamed in every scene. I realize a review from someone in the film might not be totally convincing, so I'll keep it short and just say BEAR is AWESOME. River saw it when he was 8 months old and got such a kick out of the robot, he couldn't stop giggling. The director continues to astound me with what he does on a limited budget. He's a great example of not letting restrictions on money, equipment and support stop you from dreaming big and making things happen.
We just finished working on another of his films called Treasure State. We had a blast. We want you to share in the magic, so here is all the ways you can win.
#1 For one entry, comment on this post and for fun, share a dream you have. It can be big or small. I'll be honest, most days I'm dreaming of extra sleep!
#2 For a second entry, like The Wylds on Facebook and leave a separate comment letting me know you did. http://www.facebook.com/#!/thewylds
#3 For a third entry, like Treasure State on Facebook and leave a separate comment letting me know you did. http://www.facebook.com/#!/treasurestate
You can do all or none of the entries, but if you do none of them, you won't win and that would be a tragedy... especially if you have kids. I put a link to the Facebook pages... how much easier does it get? I will do the drawing on Friday April 8th and announce the winner that day. If you don't win and want to buy your own copy, you can purchase The Wylds at most Christian bookstores or at http://thewylds.com/ or on Amazon.
Cheers to our 200th post and we can't wait to do 200 more... it shouldn't take me too long to get there, if I could ever find the time to actually write all the thoughts swimming around in my head!!!
