Shemar Moore is Producing and Acting in “The Bounce Back”
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.
One of my favorite shows is “Criminal Minds”. I watch it all the time and the story lines never cease to amaze and frighten me, all at the same time. When I heard news that there was an opportunity to help Shemar Moore aka Derek Morgan promote his new movie The Bounce Back, I knew I just had to help with this amazing project. I read over the plot behind the movie and knew instantly that this is a movie that I would want to watch and so would others.
This is what Shemar had to say about The Bounce Back –
“The Bounce Back” is a heartfelt romantic comedy about finding the courage to love after love has let you down.
When I read “The Bounce Back” – that very same issue was at the core of the script and the character, Matthew Taylor. I saw a lot of myself in Matthew, although I’ve never written a book (but I’m thinking about it now, hint, hint). I felt a kindred spirit to what Matthew was going through and my own life. Matthew loses his wife, his first love and after a short recovery creates a best selling book and a system of survival in order to shield himself from the pain. He throws himself into a year long speaking tour.
That system of survival; his book and speaking tour, keeps him from falling in love again when he meets the perfect girl, the beautiful and zany Kristin Moreland. Matthew realizes that he has to renounce his book and the world he has created around it in order to take the big unknown plunge of letting himself fall in love again.
I think there is a wonderful poetry to that, the idea of risking it all for love. And I feel, in my heart, that is why we’re here on this planet. To love. After I put down the screenplay, “The Bounce Back,” I knew I had to make this movie simply because I believe in love all the way down to the fabric of my being.
Shemar Moore is utilizing Indiegogo to help fund his film and anyone can help . He is using this instead of traditional “Hollywood” means of funding a film and just last week his co-star Kirsten Vangsness ( Penelope Garcia on “Criminal Minds”) got her film completely funded thru Kickstarter. Check out this video below about his mission and I promise there is a “shirtless” shot or two.
If you have a question for Shemar Moore, leave it in the comments section below and he may answer it during an upcoming interview. I will be receiving autographed pictures and more fun goodies to giveaway to a few lucky readers,so make sure to watch for this awesome opportunity.
