Here is a very nice post about “The Summer Help” from a fantastic blog “To Bulgaria” (www.tobulgaria.wordpress.com). Thank you very much for sharing the trailer and information about my documentary with your readers! The Kickstarter campaign to raise funds so I can finish the film is in full swing now. We have reached 13% of our funding goal as of today, but we still have a looong way to go, so please check out the campaign at http://www.bit.ly/TheSummerHelp . Donations start at $10– every little bit helps so please consider a contribution (and you may even get your name on the big screen in the credits!). Thanks again and feel free to share or reblog this post on Facebook, Twitter or other WordPress blogs. Thanks!
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Melody Gilbert is making a film about two Bulgarian university students working in the United States during their summer break from school. It’s called The Summer Help. Take a look at the trailer. Then think about making a donation to the Kickstarter campaign so that the film can be completed and distributed. If you’ve met what seems to be a remarkably international employee contingent at boardwalk stores, amusement parks, hotels, pool clubs, and so on, you’ve probably met people like The Summer Help’s stars Elena and Nikoleta who are here via the U.S. State Department’s Work and Travel program. Kickstarter is “all-or-nothing” crowdfunding, which means Melody and her team don’t get to keep the funds unless they reach their goal. Please help bring this film to the screen by giving what you can.
