Tailwind Pictures Announces Opportunities for Film Enthusiasts
to Appear in “Blake’s Country” and Chase Their Dream
Sweepstakes, Fan Club, Song Downloads Launch Today
SALEM, Ore., April 14, 2011 – Tailwind Pictures announces opportunities for movie enthusiasts to chase their dreams and appear in “Blake’s Country,” starring country music teenage sensation, Kylie Morgan. The film begins principal photography in August, and is announcing a sweepstakes for a teenage girl, between 13 – 18 years, to appear in a scene in the movie.
Slated for release in December 2011, Blake’s Country is a movie for anyone with a dream and passion to pursue it. It’s the story of a young girl choosing between giving up her dream of singing or returning to the stage she loves. The film’s star is Kylie Morgan, just 15-years-old, but already an established singer/songwriter who has been voted by the Country Music Association (CMA) as “Who New to Watch.”
“We want everyone – from teens to adults – to walk away from this movie feeling inspired and empowered to follow their dreams, “ said Ron Morris, president of Tailwind Pictures. “It’s especially important for teen girls to find their voices, and not just the singing kind. Morgan’s character, Blake Nelson, will touch the ‘inner voice’ in so many girls.”
The Blake’s Country “Dare to Dream” Sweepstakes launches today and invites girls, between 13 – 18 years, to live their dreams by entering their names to win the grand prize – appearing in a Blake’s Country movie scene with Morgan. The winner, a friend and guardian will be flown to Oregon for the filming in August. Airfare, transportation, hotel and meals are included in the winner’s package. Second prize is a 3-day, 2-night trip to Nashville for the winner and guardian to attend the movie premiere in December. Fifty third prize winners will receive a Blake’s Country t-shirt. The first 500 girls who sign up to enter the sweepstakes will receive a signed Blake’s Country movie poster. Free to enter, the sweepstakes form is available now at www.blakesfan.com. Submissions close on June 15. Winners will be notified on June 30.
Today also marks the launch of the Blake Nelson Fan Club, www.blakesfan.com, which gives members the inside scoop on the movie production, Morgan’s songs, and more. Free to participate, fans can earn points for joining and referring others to the club – which can be used for purchasing her songs and specialty items.
