“To tell the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since– or are likely to in the future.” – Walt Disney
This is the quote that opens the trailer for the documentary, Marceline by Andy and Sara Neitzert. When I first heart about it on The Disney Blog, I thought it was such a great idea for a film. I have read so many much about this town and the inspiration it held for Walt throughout his professional career. Those accounts have always focused on Marceline through his eyes, but in this documentary, Andy and Sara have focused on the people of this town. It’s evident even in this 2-minute trailer, how proud they are to be apart of Walt’s history. Anyone who loves the look of small town Main Street, U.S.A should most certainly lend their support to this piece of history because here is a closer look at the original Main Street, still so lovely and quaint years later.
Andy and Sara have been entering Marceline in many film festivals around the country. Sadly, that endeavour is neither easy or cheap. They have recently entered in the ArcLight Documentary Film Festival and admission is based on votes on Youtube. You could help them by simply taking a mere two minutes to press the Thumbs Up sign below the trailer!
However if you would like to help them raise funds to enter this film into other festivals, check out their donate page for details. Also be sure to stop by their production blog for all the information regarding the film. You can also follow them on Twitter.
In a few weeks, Estelle and I are getting together to view a screener of the documentary and we will fill you in on all the details! I cannot wait to get a closer look at Walt’s Marceline and meet all the characters that made his town so unforgettable.
Until then, please take time to support those who work so diligently to piece together parts of Disney history. SPREAD THE WORD!
