If you happen to be my friend on social media, you know that on Wednesday evenings, I’m busy obsessing over Aaron Hotchner, Spencer Reid, Derek Morgan, Penelope (Baby Girl) Garcia, JJ, David Rossi and newcomer Alex Blake for the evening. I worry about these people as if I know them – and for one hour at least, I do. That’s why I was super excited to see that Shemar Moore, who plays SSA Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds, is back in the movie arena again, but this time it’s as executive producer of “The Bounce Back.” It’s something dear to his heart and he is trying to fund the making of this movie so that it will be the project that he loves.
I was asked to participate in this campaign by the Bounce Back Film Campaign as part of a first-of-its-kind blogger initiative. I will cover the making of the movie from fundraising to premiere throughout the next year. I am being provided promotional material, giveaways and exclusive interviews but this is not a paid post. As always, my opinions are my own.
Oh, wait, you don’t know who Shemar Moore is? Please hold.
There ya go. I know that lots of you may be more familiar with him as Malcolm Winters from a very popular soap opera, but *I* know him specifically as Derek Morgan, the fly through the air BAU Agent that so often comes through just in the nick of time.
For this particular project he is using Indiegogo to fund the campaign, and he needs some help. Once he reaches a certain goal, he has promised to put 1.5 million dollars towards the project, so that it can move forward. While I am not being compensated financially, I will be offering plenty of opportunities for you to win various prizes during this campaign as we help support getting it off of the ground.
If you’re on twitter, you can join me and other bloggers as we discuss the joy of seeing one of our favorite television actors move into the role of executive director and maybe, possibly, get some photos tweeted to us? I know lots of you are hoping. 🙂
Please share this post with all of the Shemar Moore fans in your life, and click on over and do whatever you can. I’m sure he will appreciate every bit of it, and so will his fans!
