Many of us want to (and in some cases are already attending) the LA Premiere on July 23. I'm asking everyone to email Gillian and Frank and see what options us hard cord, dedicated Philes can have at the Premiere, especially in seeing the film and/or meet and greet with any XF cast or crew member.
With Gillian's auctions going on later this week, I'm estimating the prices for the tickets to go anywhere between $10,000 - $30,000. I know most of us work and/or go to school and that is WAY out of our leagues. In the past, it seems that those individuals who can afford these prices may not be 1st or 2nd generation Philes or even care for the show that much, but only do it to say they have or because it's the "In" thing to do.
With all the time, effort, dedication, sweats, tears, and love we have poured into the success of XF2, don't we deserve a fighting chance?
When you email Gillian at http://www.gilliananderson.ws/inter/questions.shtml
perhaps offer a different solution. Suggest a small donation, maybe a few hundred dollars to a charity of her choice, for a chance to see the film or have a meet and greet with her or any other XF cast or crew member.
When you email Frank at firstname.lastname@example.org suggest a raffle, lottery, donation, essay contest, ANYTHING to give us poor, dedicated nobody's a chance to be a part of something special, something we have loved for YEARS.
Thanks in advance to all of you. Spread this email around to other Philes to ensure something happens (hey, it worked withe the LAFF autographs right?)
Welcome to Big Light! If you get a bunch of friend requests from people you don't know, it's just friendly X-Philes adding all the cool kids. And you should RSVP to the two events we're clearly attending.
