On the last day of the 2010 workshop, our breakout group gracefully agreed to use my doc, "The Spirit of Sacajawea," to create a marketing/promotion strategy for its' November 2010 release via PBS Plus. A big shout out to the group -- Thank you!! We have implemented many facets of the strategy and it is paying off.
Programmers are picking it up and we're hearing from the press as well. I am most appreciative. This is one example of many of the ongoing impact of the workshop.
Advice and contacts from Ali, Colin, Nancy & Matt have been a tremedous help as well.
Just this past Friday, I was in Bozeman, Montana where I met fellow workshopper Michael Ballard for lunch and, afterwards, a meeting with his Program Director at Montana PBS. I didn't even have to ask him to program our show. Thanks to Michael's recommendation, he already has it programmed for Thanksgiving night in Prime time.
Would love to hear about the ripple effect of the workshop from others....
