Website launch is in sight

Posted on July 4 2011 by James

You may have thought everything on “shocking the Donkeys” had gone quiet, but in fact there has been a lot of activity behind the scenes, much of it too boring to write about, but essential next steps.

I’m talking about the building of a website designed especially to raise international awareness of the project, and, most importantly, to secure funding.

The actual launch of the site is still a few weeks off, but I can tell you something about it.

First of all, it will be bi-lingual. Visitors will have the option to toggle between English or Greek versions of any page. And we’re looking for kind volunteers to check out the Greek translations of those pages. Google Translate is OK up to a point, but it can also provide a great deal of unintended amusement.

Secondly, the site will reveal details of how the producers plan to raise the funds, and we’ll be writing more on that in later blogs.

Thirdly, there will be a lot more information about the story, the characters, and the team making the film, such as the director, as well as an invitation for people to audition for parts.

The actual launch of the site will coincide with a news release which will go out to the Greek and international media giving them an update on progress. We hope this will direct a lot of traffic to the site and that those interested will sign up for the newsletter.
